Our TakeI did run into some slowdown when reviewing Dynasty Warriors 8. Dynasty Warriors is a series is that is especially hindered by slowdown with all the action that is happening on screen all the time. It's good to see that it is getting a patch to help with the issue.

Thank god that slow down is bad.
Finally. Its been super slow motion for the entirety of most levels so far. I've been using Guan Yu in Ambition mode, and I can maybe attack 6 times in 30 seconds,even if I'm just tapping X at an unhuman rate. Multiplayer has been especially bad.
That's great that they're fixing it. Dynasty Warriors is fun when I play it with a friend. I'm usually the wingman to my wife and we have KO competitions.
Great news, things got ridiculously slow in co-op.
Haven't been able to play co op, and for the most part I run from giant battles that involve your allies. Its pretty ridiculous how something this big just went unchecked.
That slow down did look bad when I was watching some friends play the game. I'm glad their working hard to fix it. I actually want to pick this up and play through it now. It's been a while since I've played a Dynasty Warriors game.
Am I only that has noticed that coop is unplayable if you want to save? Playing with a buddy and saving the file will overwrite your single player data so haven't been able to do the one thing that my group of friends have been excited about. I'm totally fine with the slow down if I can still play the game. Hope the patch will help the coop issue.
Good, because it runs pretty bad
