GR: "Sure, the shift to open world wasn't really necessary, and doesn't really bring any huge advantages with it, but it's a very fun game nonetheless."
As Dynasty Warriors fan, I was extremely excited for this entry... however, the game is s**t -_- The combos are gone, and replaced with a weird a** skill prompt system. All the unique weapons are kinda gone (as far as I have experienced). The biggest flaw is the open world decision. Most of the time you're gonna fight small pockets of enemies, spread thinly across the map. The grapple Hook has added verticality but erased the need for gradual progress, since you just scale every stronghold. The whole OP kill an army vibe is gone, because you're spending more travelling to the next fight, than you do actual fighting.
