    I'm reviewing this game with such a low score mainly because of how bad the 360 port is. Containing massive slowdowns every corner which I did not find any mentions of until I played the game. No journalist cares to mention it, even Koei themselves didnt let it be known how bad of a port it is.

    If you can get through the lag battles it just might be a great game, but it's best to wait
    for a patch. Hopefully Koei will make it happen. Expand

    Dynasty Warriors 8 is kind of like eating the same cake over and over. The taste is good with nice consistency, but eventually you will get tired of it. Little has changed since the last part in the series and new ideas is desperately needed. Recommended only for those who never can get enough of the one monotonous thing Dynasty Warriors continues to provide.

    It's time to stop treading water and take some freaking chances already. [Oct 2013, p.72]

    With some small adjustments Koei presents the most polished and complete game of the Warriors-series. New elements like the Ambition-mode will make both hard core fans and newcomers to the saga have a blast with this addition to the popular hack and slash feast.
