I traded in my copy but still have the steel book. I should just sell the box
On the fence with getting this ive read very mixed reviews. Can either of you tell me if the game is any good please. I loved the rest of the series.
Combo 1: X, X, Y

Combo 2: X, X, X, Y

Combo 3: X, X, X, X, Y

... you get my drift.

Gotta love it though

IGN are giving it a 5.8 - Mediocre

This one's hard to decide, i am a hard-core DW fan i gave played all if them and watched the reviews on this. Many say it's terrible and I guess so due to the world being empty. No multiplayer as well. So far there have been 4 patches to fix the imbalance as troops are unresponsive and buggy. It's worth it at this price as new dlc has been released. Especially when it comes with the steelbook. Try it I say! Just because it has received bad reviews doesn't mean its actually bad due to the critics hating on it.
What draws me to the DW franchise is the fast-paced button-mashing euphoric buzz from slashing your way through hordes of NPC characters whilst racking up huge combos.

What doesn’t draw me to the franchise is vast empty brown/beige areas with small huddles (not enough people to warrant being described as a crowd) of lifeless NPCs dotted around with enough distance between them to ensure no plague outbreak will ever spread leaving little time to generate that all so sweet euphoria which dampens when you realise most of the game is running/riding to the next huddle of npcs.

Dont get me wrong, I love open world games and I love dynasty warriors - indeed my hopes were high for this game, possibly too high! After all, what could go wrong? - Everything!

IMO DW9 does not have a single redeeming quality apart from the fact that they tried to do something different. However, ‘tried’ is open to debate given the lacklustre effort. You build an open world, you need to make people want to explore it. Make things for fans to discover and feel rewarded for finding. Populate it with colour, life and interesting things. Okay, given how graphically lacking previous DW games have been, I don’t think anyone was ever expecting anything on par with Horizon Zero Dawn or Assassins creed origins. But when you basically create a single castle, a single outpost and a few other buildings all made of brown/beige and then copy and paste them throughout your brown/beige barren landscape. It makes you want to die inside knowing after 10/15 minutes you have already seen pretty much all the games assets and that is all you are ever going to see!

So, I would completely avoid this game and stick with DW8 or WO if you like fun, frantic button mashing mayhem. I would also avoid this game if you like to explore open world games as this offers nothing outside the first 10/15 mins and is slow, dull and lifeless compared to other open world games - even those on ps2!

I must admit, I only played up to the 25 hour mark and took 2 characters through the campaign but it was a slog - a damn hard slog. Now gone back to WO.

Warrior's Orochi is just brilliant! I can't wait for the new one coming out at the end of the year.

Without doubt my fave just for the amount of playable characters, levels and customisable options! Not seen too much info about the new one yet but I’m hoping it will be as good as the last
Just received the game and my first thoughts of this game is that it is quite bad. The graphics if anything look like they have regressed and the text is so small I have no idea what the on screen messages say. I'll try and play a little bit more this weekend but so far I'm not impressed at all as it's nowhere as good as Warriors Orochi 3 or the previous SW or DW games.
