Dynasty Warriors Next is one of the few Vita games that I honestly could not recommend to anyone.
This game, like other Dynasty Warriors games before it, is an action-based hand-to-hand combat game where you control 65 different historical figures from ancient China. This game revolves around three in particular – the power struggle between Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Ce (Liew Bay, Tsau Tsau and Tsun Say, phonetically), almost 1900 years ago. I am a big fan of games steeped in history – even if that history is half-fictional like in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. This game had a very low standard by which it had to impress me; this should have been an easy sale. Not only did it fail to impress me, but it failed spectacularly.
