Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers
Top Critic Average
Even as a dedicated single player game, Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is one of the best games available on the platform. It’s just so perfectly balanced, invigorating, intelligent, and rich.
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a guilty pleasure for me, but one I have not been able to get enough of. This is a great twist on the traditional Dynasty Warriors formula, and while the game is not flawless, it is the most fun I have had with a title so far in 2017.
Must buy for fans of the series
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a great attempt by developer Omega Force at merging classic Warriors style gameplay with SRPG mechanics. However, the game might be a bit too easy when compared to more hardcore tactics games like those found in the Fire Emblem series or Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together. Even so, Godseekers provides a great entry point for fans to be introduced to a new genre while keeping that over the top action gameplay. In the future, I hope to see Omega Force return to the SRPG genre with more entries in order to expand on this deep and intriguing universe — perhaps one starring Daqiao?
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a smart twist on the SRPG formula that pushes the genre in new, interesting directions while never losing touch with what makes these sorts of games so satisfying.
While this is a different spin on the tide and true Dynasty Warriors format, it works splendidly. The tactical nature of each battle is well represented and perfect for Sony's portable system.
I was surprised by how much I liked Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers. It’s definitely very different from the Dynasty Warriors games we usually get. The change from hack and slash to turn-based battles is very interesting, not to mention it allows the story to shine. Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is definitely worth your time, especially if you’re a fan of, say, the Final Fantasy Tactics games.
Despite being a tactical game, Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers very much has the heart of the franchise. You have your one-man-army officers, accessible and addictive gameplay and the famous groovy music. It’s far from a perfect game, since its technical flaws and simplistic nature leave a lot to be desired. However, at the same time, it offers just enough complexity to keep things surprisingly engaging while keeping the whole game accessible to both newcomers as well as long time Dynasty Warriors fans.
All in all, Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers tickles my fancy both for more Musou content, and for a decent Tactical RPG in a way that I couldn't imagine any other game would do simultaneously. I just wish they would leave the wishy-washy supernatural stuff for the more ridiculous Warriors titles.
Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is a game to enter the genre of srpg, because the learning curve is very smooth and allows new players to understand the most basic concepts. The latter is its greatest strength, since it simplifies the experience and makes it friendly to everyone so that is the best way to know this type of games. It is also brilliant to let us see the franchise from a fresh point of view and make us understand it in more ways, so we can enjoy more of the series and its history. However, we can not say that it is excellent because it is technically mediocre, even though this is not entirely relevant, they could have made a greater effort to make the game feel more alive.
