They finally got it right I been playing these Dynasty Warriors game since Dynasty Warriors 2 and including the Warriors Orochi and Gundam series. Since they ported it over the game essentially looked like the PS2 version with minimal graphic upgrades. DW8 should have been the the Dynasty Warriors showcased @ launch or at least by the time Warriors Orochi 2 came out.
This is for sure a good rent and a great buy for those hardcore fans! I wish that they bring back the body guards to the series, but as far as individual character improvement this game is King!

No longer is the clothing stiff and the secondary weapons in this game you actually want to use them. I'm still unlocking characters and have not played through with all the Kingdoms but so far so good.

Pros:
-Secondary weapons are cool now
-Characters button mashing moves are seriously upgraded
-Koei has finally put in work in upgrading the landscape
-Improved fun factor
-Online co op play with other players
-RPG elements that can keep you playing for months
-77 Characters

Cons:
-If you played one you played them all eventually it all gets stall
-Even though it is an upgrade from the rest this is still behind graphically than other next gen games

Conclusion: If it ain't broke don't fix it well this time they fixed alot! Eventhough there are always going to be reviewers who state that this is just "button mashing" this is the best Dynasty of button mashing of all time and this time they came the closest to getting it right.

Worth the rent for the young and old.

I mean i like the new combos and whatnot but idk it just feels like they've lost the excitement of the game. Probably should've stopped at Dynasty Warriors 7 in my opinion.
