Koei has now brought the series Dynasty Warriors for PlayStation Vita with the title Dynasty Warriors: NEXT. As the title of the first series of Warriors on the platform of this new, if Koei managed to give the experience of playing hack-and-slash against thousands of people in a handheld that charming?
Visually, arguably Dynasty Warriors: NEXT is very appealing to the eye. It also influenced the character of the site is much closer to the screen than the version of console her, making it look sharper. DW: NEXT even able to show a lot of our opponents on the screen to kill. Unfortunately, if the enemy is really too much, there will be major slowdown which makes the fight a slow-motion.
Dynasty Warriors: NEXT performed using the assets of 7 Dynasty Warriors: Xtreme Legends along with a variety of improvement. Song of songs taken from Dynasty Warriors 7 , but for the CG video, they use video new.
Broadly speaking, the gameplay Dynasty Warriors: NEXT is the same as the Dynasty Warriors 7: a game hack-and-slash against thousands of opponents in a map. But this particular version of Vita, Koei gives improvement are all using the various features of the handheld is Sony’s latest.
Koei integrate features gyro, touch screen and rear touchpad into this game. We can use the gyro to drive the turret, using the rear touch pad to shoot, or use the touch screen to give commands.
This time the dueling has been re-decorated combat Dynasty Warriors. Played similar to Infinity Blade, we will be dealing with an opponent and must use the touch screen to beat. But we can not carelessly flick the touch screen just like that, there is a separate technique. Unfortunately at the time of the duel, it seems that the opposite face is stiff and does not have an expression even if we attack many times.
At the moment we’re at war, would have been no “Sudden Encounter” . In the encounter, the enemy will do the Ambush and we must use the touch screen or a gyro to defeat them. But as this mode the game a little annoying, because we need to quickly change the position of the touch screen and perform a command before we hit damage.
Koei also eliminates the HP bar of Dynasty Warriors: NEXT. Now the system is HP so similar to FPS games, the more you damage, it will display the red, and if we run away, then after a long time HP will regenerate itself.
Two musou system of Dynasty Warriors 7 has been removed, replaced with one musou, one speedmusou, and one breakattack. Musou Speedmusou is issued using the rear touchpad or touchscreen features, while the break attack is an attack using forces that can capture a base directly.
Dynasty Warriors: NEXT integrate into the Story Mode Campaign Mode. Unlike Dynasty Warriors 7 with the kingdom story mode, Dynasty Warriors: NEXT is now somewhat different story. If the Dynasty Warriors 7, all ending with unifying China by the Jin Dynasty, in DW: NEXT at the end of the story we will be able to choose one of the four kingdoms of Wu, Shu, Wei and Jin to get each ending.
Campaign Mode is actually a kind of mini Empires mode, in which we choose which areas to be attacked, and if it reaches a point, then the story will continue. Before the attack, we can choose a strategy to strengthen the war.
By using the features of the PS Vita, there are four types of mini-games which are included by Koei: Steeplechase, in which we ride past the various obstacles using the Gyro, Bastion, where we survive the attack by using the touch screen to attack enemies, Marksman, where we must prevent the enemy come to use ballista, and Calligrapher, where we have to write kanji using a rear touchpad and touch screen.
But with the force of his mini-game as a feature story, the flow of campaign mode so disturbed. Dynasty Warriors is a game hack-and-slash, why suddenly so write calligraphy and horse racing
If the Campaign Mode is the mini Empires mode, the mode is simple Empires Conquest Mode. Unlike the Conquest Mode Dynasty Warriors 7, Conquest Mode in Dynasty Warriors: NEXT is really a map of where we are fighting for territory of China.
But far from the Dynasty Warriors Empires series, here there are only few of our ability to manage the empire. We can only choose a strategy of war, attacking enemies, and choose whether we will be a good king or king’s evil. There is no such thing as Officer Mode in DW6: Empires. Strategy still there, if we recklessly attack the enemy territory without consideration of the situation, might we captured all the territory and we get game over.
Unlike DW6: Empires, we can not choose to use a non-Musou characters like Mao or Xiahou Liao Hua. We also can not hold alliance or make an awesome map of the kingdom, for example, a kingdom led by Xiao Qiao evil and so forth. We can only choose one of five kingdoms: Shu, Wu, Wei, Jin and the Other (the leader and subordinates, but we can choose freely). For those who want to master the use of Ma Teng China, had to be disappointed.
We also can not give orders to the other generals, could only give orders to the troops that we carry. Giving orders is done in real-time, is to open the map using the touch screen and drag the army into position to attack / hold is desired.
In the Conquest Mode, we can play online but not actually online. With the fight online, then we will be able to meet with another player’s character edit, duel, sends a challenge to get the bonus XP, and even edit the character can recruit into our men. But do not expect to master the Chinese with a friend, because for that there is such thing as Coalition Mode.
Coalition Mode is an additional feature to play multiplayer, but it can not be played online, only through ad-hoc only. At the Coalition Mode, there are only four modes: Sentinel (protecting the headquarters with a friend), Marauder (seize the enemy’s headquarters with a friend), Blitz (grab the enemy main camp as soon as possible), and Sudden Death (captured enemy bases, but all of them one-hit kill ).
We can still play the Coalition Mode alone, but keep in mind that this mode is very difficult to resolve without the help of others.
Character Creation is back in the game Dynasty Warriors: NEXT. Taken directly from Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, we can create a character new to be played in Conquest Mode and Mode Coalition.
Although it remains largely the same as the character creation Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, but Koei has added various armor parts like the new Armor Artemis was once the DLC for Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, as well as a variety of armor more unique.
System following the online FPS, as long as we play we will get XP. XP is determining the level we are as a player, and serves as an unlock system to get the various armor parts according to the level we are at this time .
