Dynasty Warriors 8 XL Definitive Edition has landed on the Switch, bringing with it all the DLC and expansion content previously released for the core title, but also some new content that made its way around with both the Empires and Legends versions of the game. However, does it work and does it give us a worthwhile experience?
Since the establishment of the Dynasty and Samurai Warriors games, the Warriors franchise remains one of the most renowned Musou franchises in the world. Bringing the best of both worlds together once again comes Warriors Orochi 4, a title that holds a Guinness World Record and aims to be the best the series has to offer yet. But does it accomplish the goal? Let’s find out in our review.
+Extremely beautiful graphics
+Framerates are consistent at all times
+Follows the anime, but also offers a new insight into pre-existing events
+Character creation while simple is top notch
+An amazing and highly enjoyable soundtrack that never seems to get old.
-Difficulty changes can be, at times, a bit overwhelming
-Seeing the inside walls of Wall Maria does get a bit old after quite a bit of time
Just when you’d think that Attack on Titan had begun to grow irrelevant, there’s always someone, somewhere, that wants to remind you just how great the series can actually be by any means necessary. This time around, it just happens to be Koei Tecmo and Omega Force, the minds behind the Warriors franchises, and even the minds behind spin-off franchises Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors.
+Controls have been simplified for better ease of use.
+Massive open worlds that are ever-changing as the game progresses.
+Level scaling is done quite well, emphasizing the need for side-quest completions.
+Every character has open access to all weapon types.
-Problematic framerate spikes and character pop-in.
-Horrific English voice tracks that could have been left out entirely.
-Framerate dips do become problematic and take away from the experience the game has to offer.
In one way or another, there’s little to no doubt that you’ve some way encountered a Dynasty Warriors style game. In many ways, the franchise has been the quintessential experience within the very genre the games have created. Even if not a direct Dynasty Warriors title, there’s no doubt there may have been a chance you’ve played through games such as Fire Emblem Warriors, Hyrule Warriors or even Berserk and the Band of the Hawk.
+Offers an excellent mash-up between the Warriors franchise and previously established franchises.
+Combat feels solid and well delivered across all twelve characters
+The over-arcing story feels quite unique and well delivered
+Each character offers unique approaches to each encounter
-The game grows stale over time due to the unfortunate overuse of combat field designs
-Enemies pose no threat throughout the game, leaving difficulties worth being questioned
-Conquest mode would have been a solid addition for the title
At times, it’s hard to imagine what it would be like when some of your most absurd characters from the franchises you love cross paths. I’ve affectionately taken to such concepts thanks to the countless cross-overs we’ve seen in recent years with titles such as Capcom’s Project x Zone series and even Sony’s PlayStation All-Stars title. It’s interesting to say the least, but cross-overs sometimes have a lot of work cut out for them in order to bring together a cohesive story.
