If you’ve played one Dynasty Warriors title, you’ve pretty much played them all. While some may find the Musou genre repetitive and boring after a short while, I’ve always enjoyed the thrill of conquering entire battlefields as a lone warrior and leading troops to victory. Racking up insane combos, unleashing devastating special attacks and unlocking powerful weapons and equipment are just a few of my favorite aspects of the Warriors games. Having never played any of the spinoff Empires games, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but after spending some quality time with Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires I’ve come away very impressed. If you’ve ever played a Warriors game and wanted to do more than simply hack and slash across the battlefield, this is for you.
