The latest addition to the Dynasty Warriors series is a mix of the traditional game and the "Empires" series. It comes with a Campaign (story) mode and a Conquest mode for single players, as well as a Coalition Mode which uses the Vita's ad-hoc feature to set up games between other vita players. You will also receive bonuses for your characters if people on your friends' list have the game and are playing it, even in single player modes.

The action is pretty similar to Dynasty Warriors 6 & 7, with a few additions. The Vita's touchscreen can be used to perform Musou or Break attacks as well as deflect arrows or cut enemies during cut scenes, Duels are also done entirely with the touchscreen. In order to increase the power and range of some Musou attacks you'll need to shake the Vita, which is my only annoyance so far. I'm not a big fan of shaking consoles or controllers, especially when it's something this expensive. Thankfully you can turn it off in the Control settings by setting "Motion Sensor Functions" on "No".

For a release date title, I'd say it's very polished and fun. The graphics are amazing for a portable game, the music is surprisingly good and I haven't had any frame rate issues so far. There's a fully functional character creator but I haven't had the time to test all of it yet. The controls are easy and the camera is not as bad as it has been in the past.

I'm not sure if Japanese voices are an option later in the game or through DLC, but I would appreciate if Techmo-KOEI added them since the English voice acting has always been rather cringe worthy.

If you're a fan of the Dynasty Warriors series and you own a Vita you will definitely want this title. For those who are unfamiliar with the series I can honestly say this is one of the best titles currently available for the Vita and worth getting if you're into action games.

If you're a gamer who's been playing for the last fifteen years or so, there's a good chance at some point, you played a Dynasty Warriors game.

Living by the old adage "If it ain't broke, add motion and touch controls," Dynasty Warriors NEXT takes the tried and true formula of slashing thousands of soldiers to ribbons on your way to world domination to the next level by adding superfluous touch features and curious motion controls, the latter which can thankfully be turned off.

It may seem I'm being overtly cynical, and that's because I get a kick out of how many times Koei can release virtually the same title, but that doesn't detract from what's important: Dynasty Warriors NEXT is a lot of fun, and surprisingly polished.

The graphics are impressive, the controls are excellent, and the gameplay is fun. NEXT has elements of Empires and its base is Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends. NEXT also includes some quick-time elements and has a few other gameplay additions that inject some new blood in the series.

The Vita has one of the most impressive launch line-ups I've seen and it is easy for a title such as this to be ignored, and that's understandable considering the saturation of the Dynasty Warriors series, though that shouldn't discourage you from picking this game up if you enjoy the gameplay these titles deliver. This is solid entry with a lot of content and it doesn't feel slapped together to get it out the door for the launch window. If you enjoy murdering thousands of soldiers I recommend picking up Dynasty Warriors NEXT.

Being an avid fan of all the Warriors games (Samurai, Dynasty and Orochi) this game is a great addition to the series. For fans like myself, you'll be able to appreciate it, however, if you've never been keen on the hack-and-slash style of DW, you probably will want to stay away.

It has all the DW7 characters PLUS the ones from Xtreme Legends, in addition to also having a create-a-character (Edit Mode). This is a major plus for me, as I only had the regular DW7 since the Xbox 360 always gets hosed on the Xtreme Legends expansions.

If you've played DW7, the character models are the same, as are the weapons. There is no 4th level weapon per se, in the sense there's no particular battle/difficulty to obtain it, you just pick them up from defeating generals/opening boxes. The weapons have different buffers on them, like +12 Strong Attack and such. The higher the difficulty you play, the better your chances are of obtaining more powerful weapons, as is the standard practice of the series.

As far as character growth goes, there isn't any. The way you beef up your character is through obtaining items, which are the same as back in DW5 (Tiger Amulet, Way of Musou, Wind Scroll, etc.). Items have levels from 1-20, with 20 being the best and most effective. These are obtained the same way as weapons (defeating generals/opening boxes). Also, they've added Character Cards, which offer certain abilities, depending on whose card you select. For example, if you play Liu Bei's character card, it increases the defense of your main camp and bases, and Guan Suo's double the amount of EXP you earn. You can select up to 4 cards to play before every battle, and the cards are paid for with the gold you accumulate from the territories you own.
