Dynasty Warriors reinvented the beat 'em up genre that had been dominated by 2-D street brawlers before the PS2 came along. It was the game that first sold me on that system, and its formula remains fun 13 years later.
Have a soft spot for this series. Havnt played one in a good few years, however. Should revisit with this iteration.
I'm actually quite looking forward to this version. They've been re-doing the character movesets since DW5, and this will be the first game since then in which every character will have a unique moveset (there were a fair number of clones in DW7).
I'm also hoping the online is better this time around. In DW7 there were all kinds of issues with online play.
@afrsamurai88 this is what everybody says after bitching of not buying a new dynasty warrior game until they make samurai warriors orochi again. Lets face it, we are all equally weak to musou games.
@JRLennis Have to admit even though fundamentally each generation is the same. What other game could absorb thousands of hours of my life over the years smashing face buttons, and me still having a good time playing what boils down to the same book written in the 14th century every time XD.
