About the Game:
Includes Dynasty Warriors 8 along with the Xtreme Legends expansion and some free DLC.

It doesn't include all the DLC from the PS3 version: as there is a bunch of new Stage, Weapon, Costumes, and other DLC that is on the PS3 version that hasn't been made available for purchase yet on Steam.

How it Runs:
Game runs great on highest settings at 1920 x 1080 resolution, I get 60 FPS no problem.

Overall, I haven't had any issues with slowdown or framerate drops that I usually see on the console versions. The loading times are also pretty quick compared to the console versions as well without a solid state drive.

Game Settings:
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Texture Filter: High
Quality Settings: All High
Vsync: 1

Note: I had to set my resolution in the configuration instead of within the game.

(See specs at bottom of page)

Story:
The story is based off the Romance of the Three Kingdoms historical novel, but since it is a video game they have fantasy elements and change some things to make it more exciting.

The Story Mode has a bunch of cinematics before and after battles that help tell the story and they are alright for this type of game.

Graphics:
The graphics seem to be based on the PS3 version of the game, but they still look better than the PS3 version due to higher framerate, resolution, and I think they added a few things in the graphic options that make them look a bit better.

Overall the graphics are average for a console port of a game, but the gameplay is the best part of the Dynasty Warriors series.

Gameplay:
Those who know the Dynasty Warriors series will be familar with the hack and slash gameplay. You can control a hero from a roster of 82 characters, each with their own individual design.

The game is mostly about using weapon attack combos to defeat hundreds of enemies and other officers through battles in the game. There is a lot of flashy effects for the weapon attacks and special musou attacks which make the game more exciting.

You can obtain new weapons to equip your warriors with and each warrior can use two weapons and switch between them in battle. You also can level up each warrior to level 150.

There are story missions for the three major kingdoms (Wei, Wu, Shu), and the Jin and Lubu forces. As well as a Free Mode to replay story and other battles, a Challenge mode that has arcade type battles, and Ambition mode where you can upgrade a camp and conquer territories.

Conclusion:
I purchased the game because I am a fan of the Dynasty Warriors series and I don't own a PS3 or PS4, so I can't get Xtreme Legends unless I pay $50 for this on Steam or go out and buy a PS3 or PS4 and pay $60 for the PS4 version or $70+ for the PS3 bundle.

The graphics seem fine to me, they aren't amazing, but they aren't bad either. I played the Xbox 360 version of DW8 and they seem to be a bit better, but the graphics aren't as important as gameplay with the series.

Online multiplayer would've been a good bonus feature, but I don't think its a mandatory feature for the series. I have never played online in the past titles, I usually play solo or split screen. If you need to have online multiplayer then pick up the PS4 version instead.

The game has been running great and I haven't had any technical issues yet.

Only complaints:
- No DLC available for sale yet or news if it will be available on Steam.
- Would be nice to see controller buttons instead of keyboard buttons when using a controller.
- Depending on controller may need to remap your controls.

Overall it is a good game if you are Dynasty Warriors fan or someone who likes hack and slash games. It is cheaper to buy the PC version (North America - USD) than the console version as well which is a plus. Should be glad they brought Dynasty Warriors 8 game to Steam!

Update 1: There seems to be some people having issues with the game crashing, freezing, not starting up, etc. I haven't encountered any of these issues yet, game has been running perfect on my machine. However, I would check out the forums for more information about known technical issues if you think you may have a problem.

Note: I would recommend using a controller when playing this game.

Chinese genocide simulator. But be warned, may contain many deaths to Lu Bu.

Only gripe so far is the lack of online multiplayer, but, if you want to play a game you know and love, you can look past this.

Only a quick review on launch day with a couple hours played. It is a good port in pc performance and game play, but there are a couple problems first no multiplayer, hopefully the devs will respond to the backlash on this soon rather then just ignoring it, and the texture quality is pretty poor, to the point where cut scenes were laughable, but in battle its mostly unnoticeable thanks to the flashy effects.

Overall I'd recommend waiting for a sale or a price drop especially if you already own it on another system.

If they add in online co-op then it will totally be worth full price!

Runs real smooth, showing great promise so far with an absolutely massive amount of content...
HOWEVER
"multiplayer" seem to be local co-op only, that is absolute ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and should be clearly mentioned as for most of us that means no multiplayer support at all, and it's very missleading. Here I was hoping to finally have something to co-op play with a firend of my and this ♥♥♥♥ happens.

Edit: Loading a game crashes it, as some people have mentioned, bleh.

Edit 2: Thats splitscreen, not Lan/hamachi. Hope that helps.

Edit 3: I see they have changed it now, but theres no Lan play, only split screen. No there hasn't been a patch or anything.
