Dynasty Warriors Next (PS Vita)

 

There was a time when the Dynasty Warriors franchise wasn't just exciting for its devoted fan base. Mowing down hundreds of enemies in was a good, early display of the PlayStation 2's power. Since then, however, the series has been scorned for being...

Dynasty Warriors Next: A Musou with no compromises

 

The Dynasty Warriors series certainly has its share of detractors at this point, but all that iteration means developer Omega Force knows a lot about slashing packs of dudes. You know what you're getting here: Chinese warriors with cool, big weapons,...

Slick look, solid implementation, nice depth for a launch game

Just Dynasty Warriors” not enough for some, gimmicks are not great

Koei's Dynasty Warriors series has long been a polarizing force in gaming. Either you love the series' hack and slash take on the Three Kingdoms or wish it would just curl up and die already.

Full sized DW action on the go ; Tons of content ; Touch Screen Musou attacks ; Base system

Some tacked on Touch/Motion controls ; Duels

Koei's cult series makes its Vita debut, but does it break new ground on Sony's new handheld or is it just going through the motions?

Even so, this is Dynasty Warriors through and through, and if the new content might convince a few newcomers to take the plunge, anyone who hated the previous games will find little to love here. Though if it’s been a while since you played a Warriors...

Dynasty Warriors NEXT PlayStation Vita Review

 

To that end, this title follows the same basic formula that exists in all Dynasty Warriors games. Expect to run around a giant map capturing bases, mashing buttons to decimate the A.I. driven hordes. That's a nice way of saying if you grew tired of or...

Destroying so many guys at once, cool Speed Musou attacks that work with Vita's touch screen/gyroscope, local multiplayer, Edit mode, Sudden Encounters

Extremely repetitive, mindless enemies, bland backgrounds

Playing Dynasty Warriors NEXT brings to mind the opening scene from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the one where Sauron swings his mace and several dudes go flying. If anything, the game does a fine job boosting one's ego with...

If you build it, a Dynasty Warriors spin-off will come. This has been true of any game system released in the past few years, and Tecmo Koei has no intention of breaking tradition with the PlayStation Vita. Dynasty Warriors NEXT can't wait to get out...

Awful obligatory minigames aside, there's a solid game to enjoy at the core. You'll just have to be a really big fan to suffer through the dire moments.

Dynasty Warriors Plus comes with new touch-based diversions, but they don't prevent this entry from being the same old button masher.

Mowing down enemies can be fun for a bit ; Sprinkles of strategy keep things a little interesting

Repetitious combat is the bulk of the experience ; Touch-screen segments range from boring to frustrating ; No variety in maps or enemies

Keeping an eye on the minimap is key because it tells you where both your forces and your opponent's are, letting you know if you need to hoof it back to your main base to play defense. Thankfully you're never a one-man army, and you can use the touch...

The hack-and-slash Dynasty Warriors series makes its first appearance on PlayStation Vita with four-player cooperative support and all-new features designed for the handheld. Take control of one of several generals in Ancient China as you battle enemy sol

Dynasty Warriors Next- PSV

 

Its title suggests big changes to the formula that just aren't here, but Dynasty Warriors NEXT will appease series veterans who just want to have a copy of their favourite franchise anywhere they go.

It even features a hint system which solemnly suggests that "over-thinking things only makes them more difficult. Approach matters simply and you will find the path you seek." Some would say this is the Omega Force approach to game design, but if ever...
