The option to have it on PlayStation 4 is welcome and if players missed the original game for whatever reason, this is the version to pick up.

While hardcore fans will not find too much depth and challenge here, Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers is an entertaining title that successfully translates the key aspects of the Dynasty Warriors series into enjoyable strategy gameplay.

The game still provides many hours of enjoyment and lots of the good things that fans have come to expect, but those hoping the series uses this opportunity to take another giant leap may find themselves brought back to Earth with a bump.

When things finally get going in the second half, it suddenly becomes a much more engaging experience, but the change will come too late for many.

2.5 / 5.0 - Absolver
Oct 2, 2017

While Absolver seems to get the combat aspect of things down well enough, it fails to back it up with any meaningful direction and content for players, resulting in an entirely forgettable experience.

3.5 / 5.0 - Boot Hill Bounties
Dec 17, 2017

The game marks a strong second title, and new players shouldn’t be afraid of jumping straight in here — though checking out the previous title certainly wouldn’t hurt. Signs are good that the developer will be able to make a fitting conclusion to the trilogy.
