GR-UK writes: "As a new instalment in an established series Dynasty Warriors 8 is a noticeable improvement. The sheer amount of content means it's sure to entertain for a very long time. It's the same goofy, off-the-walls madness as always. New developments are mostly improvements, though some omissions like the lack of a narrator, or absence of Challenge Mode, are a bit baffling.
It's unlikely that Dynasty Warriors 8 will convert new players, but established fans will get a lot of enjoyment from what's on offer."
