Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

As with previous titles in the series, Dynasty Warriors 8 follows the stories of the kingdoms of Wei, Wu, Shu and Jin through the actions of historical military and political figures of the time as they fight to gain control over the Three Kingdoms of China. However, this sequel takes the much loved IP one step further, merging numerous replay elements like multi-endings and extra modes with synergies between action and game systems, making a game that people won't want to put down. Apart from the Story Mode, which comes with new episodes and characters and takes a deeper look at the drama that unfolds in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms story, Dynasty Warriors 8 includes all new ‘What if?' scenarios. Breaking away from historical fact, this mode takes a look at what could have happened if famous characters had lived to fight another day. Stories branch out to different outcomes providing variety in the course and ending of the game, and giving the players the power to view an alternate version of history depending on their choices. Dynasty Warriors 8 also boasts a vast number of new and returning playable characters, as the highly anticipated officers Yue Jin and Li Dian from the Wei Kingdom, who make their first appearance in the series, alongside more than 70 playable characters that fight to prevail in the battlefield. Giving stronger emphasis in the stage of these epic battles and inspired by the landscape of ancient China to deliver a wide range of visual treats, Dynasty Warriors 8 will feature more than 40 completely new stages: verdant plains, desolate wastelands, sharp ravines, huge castles, and other breath-taking sites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynasty Warriors 8 Review for PS3 July 21, 2013

Dynasty Warriors 8 Review for PS3

Dynasty Warriors 8 is fantastic fan service that makes serious improvements which solidify it as the best entry in the series to date.

The Good
* Drastically improved AI and difficulty
* Every character has their own unique move-set with their personal weapon
* Largest roster of the series to date
* Best stage design and mechanics yet
* Great gameplay mechanics
* Return of Free mode
* Online and offline 2 player co-op
* Extremely high replay value

The Bad
* Story mode has limitations in terms of character selection
* Some slight slowdown in certain areas of the game
* Some story elements are not voiced

I have been a huge fan of the Dynasty Warriors series since its second installment and Dynasty Warriors 3 and 4 were by far my favorites because of their uniqueness and difficulty with 2 not falling too far behind. However, with the PS3/360 generation the Dynasty Warriors series seemed to be going in a different direction with the mediocre Dynasty Warriors 6 and worse, but slightly better in some aspects Dynasty Warriors 7. In probably one of weakest installment to date the Omega team made some bold and questionable changes in Dynasty Warriors 6 which included drastic character changes (which included appearance changes and weapon changes), the introduction of a broken combat system and the introduction of seemingly useless gameplay mechanics i.e. ladder climbing and swimming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would give it 5 stars but... July 16, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been waiting forever for this game to come out and it finally got released today! Of course with each new title in the Dynasty Warriors series some things get better and some things don't but usually they get better with each new addition.

Dynasty Warriors 8 really delivers!
1. Better landscapes
2. A wider range of weapons
3. A new weapon system
4. New designs of characters
5. New characters
6. A bigger story mode
7. Free mode is back
8. And overall better graphics

Of course it does take a little bit to get used to all the new and updated stuff but that's part of the fun :)

Still there were a few disappointments :(
This game kind of fell short in the voice department. During the story mode there is no narrator to describe what is happening. All there is is subtitles explaining what's going on and the subtitles are too tiny to read. In the previous Dynasty Warriors 7, I think everything pretty much was voiced but in this game when you're in the camp and talk to other officers it's just silent voice overs. I was disappointed with no narrator for the story mode and that the voice overs kinda got cut in this game. Especially since the Japan version of this game did have a narrator for the story mode and pretty much everything was voiced (at least by the videos on YouTube)

Also I don't know if it was just my game but there were a few glitches. When a character is speaking during a battle their picture takes a few seconds to appear along with what they are saying and it only happened twice so far but the screen was a few seconds behind the game. Characters would be speaking and there was noise but the screen was just blank for a few seconds.

I liked this game and I am enjoying playing it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent mindless hack and slash August 19, 2013
By ceigna
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't get me wrong, I love Dynasty Warriors and this game is pretty good. But I think the last few days of playing Ambition Mode made me want to punch someone in the head (preferably the game developer).

Let me get into the pros first: I was disappointed by Dynasty Warriors 7 and its lack of story co-op. The main thing I love about these games is playing co-op with my husband. So the huge plus is bringing story co-op back.

I also like the weapons affinity thing. There are three affinities: Heaven, Earth, Man. I can't remember off the top of my head now what each affinity does, but each affinity is stronger against one and weaker against the other. For each battle, you can equip your character with two weapons with different affinities. So that made it kind of fun and strategic since, in co-op, we try to have the two of us have all three affinities so we never have an officer that is strong against us.

The Rage Attacks are also incredibly powerful and fun to execute. I love doing one of those rages in the middle of several hundred soldiers and just watching their bodies fly.

I'm also a fan of how some battles in story-mode can be completed in more than one way. If you fail a mission objective, that sometimes changes the victory conditions. That brings the replayability factor up a lot.

Now the cons: The minor con is that somehow, they manage to make the story-telling part of the game even more boring than a history lesson (even though that's essentially what they are). I remember these segments used to have music and sometimes voiceovers in earlier games. Those at least made the history lesson easier to stomach. I don't know why that's difficult considering the Dynasty Warriors games aren't exactly coming up with new stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best!
Currently the best game in the franchise. Although, I dearly miss the narration from previous games because I can't read the tiny subtitles on my TV, which doesn't support HDMI.

Punctual and arrived in working condition. CD wasn't secure though and had a bunch of fingerprints and a few scratches on in. Still, works well.
