4.0 out of 5 stars If you like DW, you will like DW8, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dynasty Warriors 8 (PS3) (Video Game)
I've played all DW titles, and this is the best one, apart from DW6 Empires.
Lots of characters, lots of weapons, lots of maps and three different game modes keep you entertained for weeks, if not months.

However, there are three things that have been annoying since the beginning, escecially in hard and chaos difficulty (though I cannot remember if there were horses in the first part).

- Yes, the stupid horse. It takes too long for it to show up, especially in hard and chaos difficulty. Then you have to press the referring button repeatedly to get on that mentally deficient mule. In chaos mode this can result in you being slain by the enemy before you can mount that damn mule.

- You have to learn the maps, otherwise you can get mightily confused in the heat of the battle and run or ride up a blind alley.

- Then there are the enemies... they like to jump and stab you from behind, so most of the time your avatar is fighting while facing the screen, and you have to look at the map to locate your enemy officer, which means you miss the fighting action on the screen. You can turn the view around with L1, but that feature is too slow in chaos mode.
Defending is a drag as in each and every DW part. Seldomly you stand right to keep up your defense against an enemy officer.

However, this arcade game is really entertaining, so I give it four stars out of five.
