Dynasty Warriors 8 review | Gaming Capacity

GC writes - The history of ancient China is filled with legends, mythology, and war. Sometimes the people even led normal lives. Dynasty Warriors attempted to use some of these aspects of the ancient world to make an enjoyable experience on your home console. Unfortunately, the key word was “attempted.” Dynasty Warriors 8 plays out as a rather boring experience with a tepid plot, lack of character development, and underwhelmingly simple combat system.Usually, a 20 hour campaign is a great thing to have in a single-player game. It gives players more bang for their buck, allows for a greater plot development, and can really make a lasting impression on your experience. That being said, that is a linear 20 hour game. DW8 has 4 sections of roughly 5 hours each. This would still be satisfactory, except it is the same areas, and the same story. Changing robe colors and spawning on another part of the map is not a separate campaign. You have the same weapons, same moves, same techniques, you just change from blue to green and move a few hundred yards. The story just doesn’t go anywhere. There’s a bad guy on the throne who is trying to kill a good guy who wants the throne, and they both have 90 billion soldiers to back em up. (Dynasty Warriors 8, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/10
