Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is the gaming equivalent of a B-movie. The writing is camp and clichéd, the story is forgettable, and characters have the depth of a child's shoe. And yet there's something shamefully attractive when it all comes together.
Let's face it - the much-revered Eastern hack 'n' slash franchise excels at one thing: combat. And with 30+ games under its belt, the formula for success hasn't changed: give players a selection of over-the-top weapons, and just let them smack enemies until their thumbs bleed.
If it ain't broke etc…
Shamefully enjoyable, and somewhat broken, Dynasty Warriors 8 doesn't disappoint.
