Dynasty Warriors 8 got an 8.7 at IGN

Because their typical review would lament that it adds nothing new and simply adds too much of the same over and over. It would get a 6-7 saying nothing is different and fans of the series would enjoy it.

I'm sure it's mostly reviewers who still likes the series and are judging it for what it is rather than the expected "ugh another DW game?"

I guess the "check" didn't make it to GameInformer. Kyle Hilliard gave it a 6.

Gamers are too reactionary. Games are like fine wine, they must linger for us to get their true taste. There are plenty of examples.

It isn't gonna be for everyone.
But, this is easily the best Dynasty Warriors experience yet.

I know, I was joking around about the "check" part. All a review is is one person's personal opinion of a game. But people on here act like a game review is something sacred that is written in blood or something.

World's coming to an end. A DW game scoring over a 7 confirms this

For the couple people asking, the Warriors games are basically upgrades, not sequels. Just jump in on whatever the newest one is.

that's ..... surprising.
I mean I enjoy DW games, but still surprised that it got that high of a score.

The definition of turrible additions -

Clone-less movesets
Free mode being back
Running horse mount so action doesn't stop
New stage designs
Final level weapons returned

Terrible if that's all that is needed to make it an 8.7 from IGN.


shut up..
you don't even know if it's terrible addition since you don't even play the game..

just stop acting like you know what that additions are and put your feet to where your mouth is..

Game is great. I played 3 and 5 and maxed every character. 4 and 6 were a huge disappointment for me. 7 let me down because they got rid of 2 player story mode and free mode so my daughter and i could not play 2 player.
8 has been awesome so far. We are both addicted to it.
