I've seen people say it's the worst DW since 6. My copy is on the way and I'm sorta, but now I'm worried its just a terrible game. Anyone have a nice pro/con list?

Ftr, I don't mind clones or barren maps. I've never used enough characters in DW to mind clones and maps have always been mostly barren in terms of interesting things to see or going on.

I'm more concerned about combat, depth, framerates, etc.

The frame rate is terrible but when the game works it's hit or miss you might like it you might not. I personally like the game

My thoughts exactly Raiden. Im holding off continuing the game until the performance issues are patched. Currently redownloading DW8XLCE.

If you're a fan of the series set your expectations low and i'm sure you'll be fine. Even though there's a bunch of technical issues, the way it carries itself is very much Dynasty Warriors.

Hold off until it's in the 20$ bin or koei figures their s*** out.

I always wondered if Dynasty Warriors 8 was worth getting. Never played it yet, was on the fence about it.

Although if I got it, then it would be on PC unless it's a bad port and runs better on console or the console version has something that the PC version doesn't.

I have DW8XLCE and play on my laptop and it runs fine, better than the PS4 version imo. The only thing missing are control prompts and X/A O/B buttons are switched.

I've read 4 reviews in a row saying they are on the right path with the changes, it just doesn't work yet. It sounds more and more like the next game is going to be the one fans need to get excited about. I'm still going to try this bad boy out, but my expectations have been severely dampened.

Which is unfortunate because I was very excited about this game. Hopefully I'll still enjoy it. I'm not super hard to please.
My power is discombobulatingly devastating, I could feel his facial tissue collapse under my force. Its ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.

What about missing DLC? I think I recall a few steam reviews mentioning the PC version as not being totally complete as it was missing some DLCs or something.

It's "complete" in that it has DW8 and DW8XL. DLCs aren't included, but they're not in the console version either.
By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.
