Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition
Well worth your money.
Let's start off by saying this game is not for everyone. For someone to just pick it up without having any past experience with pure fighting and hack n slash genre, will probably not like this game. However, with that being said, this game is perfect for anyone who loves to go in and kick so much butt that it leaves you tired after one battle. There is so much non stop action that sometimes after playing this for a long period of time, I have to take a nap. What else is awesome? If you played dynasty warriors 8 on ps3, you can import your data, and there is co-op cross platform. The weapon combos and shear amount of weapons and playable characters is outstanding. There are many modes to play, story; being able to hear the background of all the dynasty's, Ambition mode; where you get to build up a castle to look good for the emperor when he arrives, while building up and army of thousands of officers gathered from each dynasty by defeating them in battle, Free mode; where you can go back and play through the story missions and other missions you unlock by playing the story mode, completing them in what ever outcome you like, and challenge mode. There is but one complaint I have and this is the dialogue, the dialogue when you and fighting and defeating masses of enemies is heavily repeating the same lines over and over again. This can be annoying in the beginning, but after a while you begin to drown it out from the sheer fun you are having. I highly recommend this game to any hardcore player looking for an amazing co-op experience with friends, and like history, after all, this is based off true events in history. Just remember, any time you see lu-bu early on, run like your life depends on it!
Great game, but don't expect too much.
The stories are rather boring and just a little too long. The voice acting isn't the best (I would recommend downloading the original Japanese audio) and the missions are rather repetitive. That being said though the game is very well crafted in all other areas. Graphics look great, gameplay is super fun, and there's a character with a playstyle for just about everyone. Now I'm not really a fan of hack-and-slashers but this game is sooo much fun to play. I can't quite put my finger on why, but there's just something about racking up 1000 k.o.'s that's oddly satisfying. definitely makes up for the repetitive missions.
Gonna be good.
I have been playing Dynasty warriors since the first one was released on the PS1. This game looks amazing on the PS4, and I think you would be selling yourself short if you didn't get it on the Next gen console. Being on the next gen you can expect better graphics and more AI on the battle field (like they had on DW6 back in 2008) I'm also hoping the multiplayer is a bit better then the last, but it sounded like it was from what I read. Anyway cant wait.
This game was definitely the best warriors game so far. Yes its generic and repetitive hack and slash but that's what makes dynasty warriors a true unique game. I loved the overall feel and gameplay of this game. I can't wait for the next one!
This will be EPIC!
This game will be awesome I spent hours playing Dynasty Warriors 8. I haven't had the chance to try extreme legends, but the only Dynasty Warriors game I ever played that I didn't like was Strikeforce, and I didn't give it much of a chance. It awesome to be getting an actual game for the PS4 this and Infamous: Second Son are games of the year.
Sadly if you've played them all,
You have played them all. I was so excited for the release of this game on the PS4. I 've been playing since the series was on Playstation and now I'm so over this game because THERE IS NOTHING NEW. Sure every game release they create new costumes and EACH time for DLC you have the option to purchase OLD DLC Costumes which is terrible. Makes the game feel like last years game. Lu Bu's Story is pretty cool but it's short lived. The scene between characters is dry… the most action you're going to get out of the game is the opening video. I would suggest this game only if you're new to DW or have missed out on the last couple of games. I'm crossing my fingers for Orochi Warriors III Xtreme release in the U.S. That I would pay for all the DLC because it's a combination of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors.
my favorite game
Ok one of my favorite games. I've been playing Dynasty Warriors since the 2nd or third versions so I was excited to know that yet another DW was coming out. The xtreme legends always had more features and playable options and its the same for this one. I'm loving the new characters and all the weapons! Over all, this game is excellent and I'm obsessed.
Could have better graphics for ps4,but still not bad. Best improvement was the bodyguard system. Really good game.
If you have not played Dynasty Warriors 8 it's something to get but I've already played it and for whatever reason my PS3 won't transfer my DW8 data to my PS4, I'm not really in the mood to level everyone up AGAIN from the ground up. The graphics and realistic lighting, coloring, and action sequences are awesome. They even added some glimmering in SOME of the armors. Diao Chan's DW7 armor shines the best! Like I said earlier I don't care for the gameplay because it's really the same story, though they did add a LU BU storyline so you have: Wu, Wei, Shu, Other, and LU BU to choose from. So I there is something to look forward to after all.
Boring and repetitive
I played this series a lot as a kid, so naturally when I saw it coming out for PS4 I jumped at it. Graphics are beautiful and that was probably the only thing I liked about it. The game was really buggy. You could be an hour into a battle and get stuck in the ground of the battlefield. The voice acting was really annoying personally, and every level is the same thing over and over again. Run here, kill that boss, run there kill that boss. Every single level.
