    The gameplay model developed by Omega Force still works great and if you’re into it, you’ll find it hard to leave this game. It’s a shame that the PC version was ported from PS3, not PS4, and there’s no original Japanese voice acting. [07/2014, p.62]

    Both fans and newcomers to the series will have immense joy in fighting on this battlefield.

    A brilliantly absurd arcade brawler that’s brimming with personality, but suffers from repetition and a glaring lack of online multiplayer.

    The ones who expected a port of the PS4 version of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends - Complete Edition will be disappointed, since the PC version is based on the "old gen" graphics and also suffers from a series of technical issues.

    Bottomline, if you are a fan of the franchise and you’re stuck with no other means of playing this game, go ahead and pick up the PC version and push through the problems and enjoy yourself.

    DW 8: XL Complete Edition
    its PS3/PS4 gfx and it does run at 60 fps if you know how to set it up right there is also going to be a lot of zeros here because of no online multiplayer or they could not boot the game which they should not review until they set it up right or at least play it >:( also you will need to play with the controller settings because the default is all backwards ("controller required, xinput")...

    i like the game it runs just fine for me at max and looks good enough, they have a funny definition for complete edition because it does not have much paid dlc except for BGM packs.. multiplayer is local split-screen co-op only so i'm not too fussy about it its a SP game anyway..no chinese voice overs settings well have to wait to see if any dlc pops up in steam later,, i would give it a 8.5 / 10 but ill go for 9 i played DW3 XL 100% and DW7 back in the day so i'm not new to DW and this makes for a great return to the good old mindless hack n slash days :)

    This game is essentially the same game as all others in this series, so if you liked those games then you will like this one. If you likeThis game is essentially the same game as all others in this series, so if you liked those games then you will like this one. If you like those kind of games, this game is an 8+, if you do not it can go down to a 3 or lower simply because it is repetitive and not at all strategically stimulating. A complete hack and slash game with an intriguing story line for those interested in the Three Kingdoms story. There are many different characters to choose from, which is enjoyable, but the fighting styles are fairly similar. Although, when playing as Lu Bu you will always feel overpowered, which is not necessarily a bad thing! Expand

    Just accept the PS2 graphic and annoying 30fps lock, then this will be a fun hash and slash game.
    P/s: The fighting in this game is the best

Game for one is missing online multiplayer, also is an inferior port resulting in a noticeable drop in graphics quality specially textures, there's no Japanese audio free or otherwise at all, lastly it's missing any actual DLCs since they only packaged in free DLCs (excluding Japanese audio) and not the other 80% of DLCs that are available. Complete edition this is not, if they'd bother naming it super special deluxe premium plus edition wouldn't really care. However it's named complete edition, and isn't even anywhere near complete.

    As for the game itself, it is Dynasty Warriors 8 bundled with Xtreme Legends and a couple DLCs that were already free to begin with. Textures are low, environment and rendering's average at best, and fps is consistent so there is that. So if you were just looking for Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends minus everything mentioned above, sure this will do since it's also the only one available. However if you were expecting a complete edition, this isn't it.
