Dynasty Warriors NEXT
I wanna give my opinions on this game.
So far I’ve played through half of the game so far.
Unfortunately, I have to say it’s good, but a very poor Dynasty Warriors 7 port with glorified features than make the game feel very tedious, lackluster, & wanting things removed. *cough* Duels.
The Duels system is cool, I’ll hand it to you.
Though it’s VERY flawed.
If you were given a fair chance and not cheated out by enemy officers it’d have been 100x better.
Choosing your Dynasty/Clan.
This was one of the first things to just pour acid into my blood and make me boil until I was beyond pissed.
I was reminded of the ever so terrible Dynasty Warriors 6.
No real choice… No, just thrown into a game.
These are my small issues, let’s talk about the good now, shall we?
Being a huge Dynasty Warriors geek. After I was fed up with the campaign/story I of course wanted to go into Conquest Mode and was pleasantly surprised.
It plays out almost like a Warring Regions Monopoly.
This was cool to me, I love grinding gameplay.
There was a very solid selection of warriors in this game that almost felt completely customized if you didn’t have the time to go into Edit Mode and drop out a few characters to play with.
Such a solid Edit Mode for a portable game, it felt nearly like Samurai Warriors 4’s Edit Mode.
Though there aren’t a lot of choices in the way of facial customization there’s enough to assure you that no character will really ever look the same.
My sum of the game.
It’s a solid game if you look past the Duels feature which is total garbage and should be completely rethought out.
I’ve enjoyed every bit of my time with the game, despite pushing my limits to the point of wanting to throw the Vita.
This being my first game for the Vita, I can almost happily say that if it were stolen I’d go pick it up again for the sake of nostalgia as it’s a main series game that kicked Koei’s start off on the system.
I can’t say I’d recommend to others though, I think it’d have to be a personal choice for everyone. If they found it appealing, have at it. Unfortunately I don’t feel it’s the best way for a newbie to kick off a strong love for the game.
For others I feel it’d be a pick up and play if it were sitting around the house since that seems to be a common purpose in the way handhelds are played these days, besides the local dinner with parents, & family out at a restaurant.
I feel if you truly liked it, yeah it’s got some serious replay value.
I can for sure see myself forgetting about the game for a bit after I grab Samurai Warriors 4 for the Vita. Something tells me that I’ll for sure wanna go back and play that unique, & solid Conquest Mode game mode again as it stood out REALLY well.
