At the end of the day though this is a Dynasty Warriors game, and it still uses the same set-in-stone formula that has made it so divisive since the second game in the franchise. You still run around a battlefield slaying thousands of enemies at a time with very little strategy and in a mindless haze of glee and ecstasy. Those are what beat’em up, hack and slash games are about. Fans of the series will automatically love it, and haters will automatically hate it.

Dynasty Warriors 8 is a shockingly great game that offers an incredible amount of value in bringing a dramatized piece of history to the masses in very creative ways. While gameplay hasn’t deviated too much, the vast cast of unique characters will help make you forget how repetitive combat can be. Capitalizing on Omega Force’s strengths with a massive campaign that’s complemented with an Ambition Mode and online play, the eighth iteration offers seemingly endless hours of enjoyment in one of the best Dynasty Warriors game we’ve played.

The fact that the missions are broken down into smaller chunks and objectives means that there's some form of choice, and there's always another level to play should you get stuck. There's also the inherent appeal of crafting your own base - and as such filling it with people and shops - with the spoils, which nicely incentivises all the war-facing you're going to have to do to get them.
