Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers eschews third-person action for turn-based strategy with mixed results.
If you own a Vita and a PS4, and you absolutely must buy this game, get it on the more powerful console. The portable version doesn’t cut it, and even without the janky presentation, the game itself is bare bones as a strategy RPG. I have no doubt the Dynasty Warriors franchise would make a splendid SRPG, but this ain't it.
Omega Force has decided to experiment here, though it’s an experiment that fails to live up to its full potential. Having sampled some of the genre’s top flight titles, Godseekers’ brand of turn-based strategy feels shallow by comparison. Still, there’s enough here for ardent fans of the franchise to wring some enjoyment out of. For something that feels truly new and innovative, all eyes now turn to Dynasty Warriors 9…
With Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers Omega Force has made an enjoyable shift to a turn based strategic formula, even if gamepay could have been much deeper.

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a good choice if you are willing to enjoy an easy turn-based strategy game, and it shows how the series can match with many genres... but it has also a technical appearance that may work in PS3 and Vita, but it looks too simple for PS4.

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers manages to break its mould slightly with the introduction of a tactical RPG combat system and is ultimately strong enough to tide fans over until the next inevitable instalment.
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers may not be what you expect from Dynasty Warriors, but it's a competent strategy RPG that should at least satisfy fans of the franchise.
After spending several hours playing this cheap looking knock-off, all I could think about was digging up my old copy of Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition (that's its real name) and playing some real Omega Force action. Not this misleadingly titled exercise in mediocrity.
Those who are used to the Dynasty Warriors franchise will at least be happy to see some of the characters that they love from the series, along with lots of nods and winks. But Omega Force's difficult position of needing to please both fans of the franchise, while also trying to bring in fans of a different kind of genre, has resulted in a muddling experience that may start out promising for turn-based newcomers, but quickly turns stale.
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a good game, which partly suffers from the same old problems of the series. Poor graphics and repetitive missions blends with interesting tactical mechanics. The imbalance can ruin the final experience, but it worth playing especially if you are a fan of tactical RPGs.
