DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 Empires reviews and comments

First And foremost, I'm a Fan of the whole Dynasty and Samurai Warriors Universe. But I find it when you look forward to Carnage in old Japan or old China and, like in this Part, want to build your own Empire. Then you're in the right place. You can create your own Character and equip yourself with EVERYONE weapon you want. The possibilities are as a Vagabond or as Master of a Province are numerous and well thought out. The best thing is it does even more and if it doesn't quite tell you yet, just look gamplay. I recommend it to any of the times a change from constant Ballering, tireless raids run or try to be the best i where and just take time for yourself. Let yourself time and look how YOU want to play.

So I am writing my first Review of a Game on Steam And unfortunately I have to take this Dynasty Warriors very hard to court; Especially since I played pretty much every previous Part with Friends. Where is the best place to start. The first thing I do is start at the Level of Difficulty. With my Friends I liked to play the previous Parts on Normal, because the opposing Officers had at least a little bit to do with you, In this Part I have to say this is definitely not true. On the contrary. I am Afraid to regulate the Level of difficulty even one Step down, because I fear that the Opponents will then just stay in their Base and stop still until you have reconnected them. I will try on a higher Level Of Difficulty to see from when you can really PLAY. Next, unfortunately, is the Graphic of God. I'm really not a Player who attaches Importance to hardcore graphics, but in this Day and age at least a certain Standard should be met. And by that I mean that the Textures may be corner and Can have edges (just as much a staircase effect), but not that all the Figures except their own blur uniquely with their Surroundings (or their Clothes) (Sometimes both can also occur xD) In addition, there are various shadow bugs (popping and flashing shadows depending on where you stand) do not contribute to a beautiful Game and a conditional. Dynasty Warriors has never had much to Do with physics, but this did not detract from the fun Of the Game, but that the opposing officers don't even really notice that you beat them and let the Hits just rigidly push them through the Area like a Statue. Is really a Sign of Poverty. Especially if you could clearly do better in previous Parts. Unfortunately, I couldn't tell Meh any more, because I had to cancel the Game prematurely. Perhaps the horse's absolutely bad Animations could still be mentioned, but that can hardly be described. MY FAZIT: Dynasty Warriors in all Honor, but at this Part sies have kinky in my Opinion. I will see if you might patch again somewhere, but another €50 I won't spend on DW again. Whether You get it and to how far You pay Attention to my Review is left to you. Sincerely Kisaragi
The game itself was enjoyable, but it still can’t compare with its previous installments. It is like not everything is quite there, and you can’t really tell what is missing. Overall the game was good, I just think that the evolution here went wrong for me in particular, so I’d rather replay other parts of the series.
