First off, DW always gets terrible reviews in the US but I've been a life long fan and have literally played each and every game, I like the series a lot.
But I didn't like this one.
Don't get me wrong, if you played 7 to death, got a platinum and everything, this game is a great expansion of that experience. There's a TON of work to be done here. But it's not all that similar to Xtreme Legends of the past. Which is no good to me.
Also, if you didn't play the heck out of 7 and get everything, this game requires EVEN MORE time and effort. And it's not as fun and new as everything is recycled.
I love Dynasty Warriors. I usually buy their games because I play them for so long. For whatever reason I decided to GameFly this one and man am I happy that I didn't pay full price for it.
This game is great for a very small niche group within an already very small niche group. (those of you who mastered 7 and still aren't exhausted.)
