The game is good, but it still dont have proper support for gamepad/360 controller, despite it is a console game...
The layout shows what pc buttons to press when you still have a 360 controller enabled/connected. This gets a problem when you are trying to learn combo moves and it only shows pc buttons...

It also have the GFX from the ps3 version, and not the ps4 version, and they use ps4 GFX in the steam pictures.

Would recommend skipping this sloppy port, taking pc gamers for granted.

Dynasty Warriors: eXtreamly iNcomplete
Buy when on sale but otherwise, not worth the money!
The Story campain is fun but thats as far as you go. Ambition mode is garbage and a shadow of it's better, Empires.

You are a legendary warrior who can single-handedly kill thousands of enemies!

There are countless characters and weapons to choose from and they are all unique. It's fun trying out different weapons and characters and mastering the ones you really like.

I've been a die hard fan of Dynasty warriors since I was 4 years old. That's when I played the first hack and slash dynasty warriors game. Despite that I will still give a subjective review of the game.
I loved it because you could just be a soldier in a battlefield, something I always wanted. The games have changed a "little" since then. Some for better some for the worst.
Anyway lets start

  • You can be a COMPLETE BADASS
  • 4 different modes with a lot of content
  • A huge selection of different characters, each with their own unique weapon and moveset
  • A huge selection of music
  • Option for Japanese / English dub
  • Full controller support (and the game is best played that way)

  • False advertising
  • Overpriced DLC
  • Small selection of resolutions
  • It's not that challenging (at least for me)
  • Can get a bit tad repetitive

Detailed version:
The game is based on the novel the romance of the three kingdoms which is based on the historical time period of china that the three kingdoms occured with a bit more fiction involved like magic and a few characters that didn't exist but the game includes all the major fights and events.
You are just a badass soldier in a battlefield, with godlike powers that can kick everyones ♥♥♥! Until Lu Bu comes along and kicks your ♥♥♥. Over 70 characters if I recall correctly and each has their own unique weapon and moveset. There is simply no way you won't find someone you like.
There are campaigns for every one of the three kingdoms. + The jin kingdom and a Lu Bu campaign. If you don't know who Lu bu is shame on you.
Each campaign has the "true" path and what would have happened if (insert kingdom) had won (insert battle) plus a few extra stages that cover some other battles.
It also includes a free mode in which you can select whichever character you like, play whatever battle you desire siding with whatever army you like.
Also a challenge mode with a few other "mini games" per say which challenge you to beat a highscore and an ambition mode. Which is much more grindy empires version of the game. You select your character, build your own empire, fight and recruit officers etc.
Xbox controllers work just fine, I personally use PS3 with motionjoy, it works perfectly as well, I don't get why some other people have problems with their controllers.
Did I mention the huge selection of badass music?


This is not a bad port but it is NOT a good one either. While it runs on 60 fps with no problems and everything on high and it looks "OK" the game is being falsely advertised. The pictures in the previews are from the PS4 version while the port was from the PS3 version, it says that it has online coop but it is nowhere to be found. Only splitscreen.
A lot of resolutions are missing, I mean how can you get THAT wrong.
Don't get me started on the DLC. Overpriced garbage. Only 2 of them are worth it, the stages DLC but even those are still way overpriced.
And finally a gripe I've had with these games since DW6. They are just a little bit too easy. You would expect at least enemy officers to fight normally but no they don't. They are but dolls for you to test your awesome movesets. High difficulties will make them hit a bit more but nothing crazy. It will mostly up their health. Dynasty warriors Strikeforce for the PsP has fixed this problem but another company makes that game. Since they are revamping dynasty warriors 9 I hope this problem will be fixed.

Final verdict:
For die hard fans of the series this is a must buy. For people who like hack and slash wait for a sale (50% off is more than ok) and buy it. You will have tons of fun but if you are not a fan of Hack n Slash this game is not going to change your mind about them.

The fun part is i bought this game because of sheer randomness. I was in a moment where i just wanted something that allowed me to kick a lot of ♥♥♥, i knew the series though i had never played it before and decided to give it a shot, since it was on sale. Blast off. I immediately grew extremely fond of the game and its strengths, and happily accepted to ignore its flaws. Here's a list of the pros/cons of this game in my opinion:
-So ♥♥♥♥ing BADA$$! This game just allows you to enter a battlefield and kick so much ♥♥♥ you will just stay there grinnin' at the screen, overwhelmed by the sheer sensation of power this game gives you.
-Even if you may look overpowered in difficulties up to Normal, you still have 3 more grades of punishment waiting for you after Normal: if you want a tougher challenge, you're welcome. Don't even think of getting out alive with a non-leveled character, they will tear you to pieces. So, if you don't like being omnipotent, this game has many antidotes.
-Just don't listen to the general opinion that this game is merely a button masher. Ok, combos are few, very easy (just light attack a certain amount of time+heavy attack, and that's it), but it's not just fighting. Every battle has its own objectives you have to care about: avoid rescuing the troubled allied for too long and he's dead, battle over (for example). You must be very careful of what the game tells you: while you rampage through random enemy forces, you may miss your chance to complete an objective, thus making your life way harder and/or even failing the whole mission.
-The sheer amount of playable warriors is humongous: more than 80 powerful characters, each one, which is really something, with a dedicated weapon and move set.
-There's a lot of content: five campaigns that allow replayability thanks to slight objective variations depending on the character you choose, a free mode with rankings and extra objectives, the very interesting Ambition mode in which you can lead your preferred warrior to ultimate power and some challenges. At nearly 58 hour of gameplay, i am way far from the completion of this game. As long as you like it, you have tons of things to do.
-As soap-operish as the plot may be, it still is enjoyable enough to be a good glue between a mission and another.
-The soundtrack is powerful and exciting, giving the battles a real hand by boosting your heroic feelings quite a lot. If you are into being influenced by music, of course.

-The game is very repetitive. If you don't like killing things (a lot of things) all the time, you will grow bored.
-The english voiceover is quite bad, sometimes to laughable levels. Free japanese voiceover DLC, though.
-The DLCs this game has are very expensive and not quite necessary unless you've already fully explored the base game, which can require hundreds of hours.
-The graphics are rather poor. Character design is nice, but sceneries are empty and non interactive, textures are not detailed, geometry is very simple and generic characters all look the same (because they are). There is quite a load of special effects and a huge amount of troops displayable on screen with virtually no lag even on semi-good machines, but this game doesn't shine much on this side, no doubt.
-Playing with a keyboard is excruciating, and controller mapping may be tedious sometimes due to generic button names provided in the option menu.

This game has a lot to offers, and also historical flaws that are part of its DNA. If you like this kind of game and need to unload your stress through peons genocide, though, don't think twice: Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends (Complete Edition Ultra Super Turbo DX and what not) is the game you need. And always remember: don't pursue Lu Bu. Because no matter how bada$$ you are, he is more.
