A new open world breathes life into the franchise, but new problems have been layered on top of the original issues, and this certainly isn't the breakthrough fans were hoping for.

David Jagneaux (IGN)

5.8/10

“After the resounding success of Dynasty Warriors 8, Dynasty Warriors 9 feels like a major step back. What’s lost in the move towards an individually-centered story spread across a massive open world far outweighs the minor benefits that are gained. While the excellent button-mashing gameplay stays intact with great tweaks and additions, it wasn’t enough. The lack of multiplayer, missing alternate game modes, and emptiness of ancient China left me far from satisfied.”

4/10

“Dynasty Warriors finally gets the overhaul it’s long been waiting for… and while it addresses a few old problems it creates just as many new ones.”

Not Recommended

“Battles were raging and allies were calling for help, but for once the game offered me the option of deserting the fray and contemplating the larger world around it. It’s a shame that everything else in the game works so emphatically against it.”
