In-depth Review: Dynasty Warriors 8 - Electronic Theatre

The Warriors franchise is perhaps the most prolific of all videogames on the current-generation, including sports titles. When given the main series, adaptation releases such as the Empires and Xtreme Legends repackaging, Warriors Orochi and other spin-offs, there’s quite a variety of Warriors videogames currently available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so to suggest that Dynasty Warriors 8 is the ‘definitive Dynasty Warriors experience’ is quite a bold statement. Then again, Dynasty Warriors 8 is a fairly bold revision of the core Dynasty Warriors gameplay. (Dynasty Warriors 8, PS3, Xbox 360) 86/100

Day 1 for me! Can't wait, and its getting GOOD reviews lol... It's gotta be the best so far if the reviewers aren't picking it apart like most warriors games! What ever happened to the love for the beat me up genre? Fun games, especially in co op !

If you don't mind, can i ask you some question?

I've play DW 2 or 3 and Samurai Warriors 1. But looks like DW 8 catched my eyes for the series again. So, if i want to play DW 8 without playing the previous DW, can i still follow the story?

Yes every DW starts the story over from the Yellow Turbans.The only difference is that each on has more to the story and get longer but you should definitely pick up Dw8

Yes, Dynasty Warriors tells the Three Kingdoms War. All the entries tell the story, but they are just adding more of the events of the war as time goes by.

You will be just fine with the story.

7+6+6+8/4= 6.75 as average. Still they scored it at 86%. Kinda weird but hay I'm not complaining. I haven't played a DW game ever. Maybe I should..... any recommendations?

The final score isn't an average one. There are other contributing factors than the four areas highlighted. ;)
