*** "Siege of Hefei Castle" (Wei version) in the same game: unless playing on easier difficulties, chances are the stage will end with players in the center of the map, quickly trying to defeat enemies and preventing them from reaching their allied commander, who will be the only other allied officer left alive. Eventually, [[{{OhCrap}} both enemy commanders decide to join this battle]] and march straight for the allied commander.
*** Similarly, Wuzhang Plains from the same installment also gets this flak, since you also have to deal with the Wei forces' rock catapult shenanigans which like many stage hazards, can deal a massive percentage of your current health and can break through your Musou Attack invincibility. The archers there just like on both Yiling and Hefei Castle are just as deadly as ever, and the Wei forces scenario is the most used for Hard Mode clear-time runs for character maximization setups.

to:

*** Other things that make this level hell is that the game is scripted to have Wu launch a fire attack on your camp, making your morale drop greatly and you also need to somehow defeat Lu Xun and Gan Ning who are two of the hardest officers to defeat in the game, mind you. Then pray you can somehow win against Sun Quan at the end with him being surrounded by many crossbowmen. The worst part? This isn't even the last stage for Shu officers like Zhao Yun and you have to deal with two other stages before finally finishing their musou modes. At least the stage immediately after this one is nowhere near as challenging as Yiling.

Added DiffLines:

** ''3'': Being far harder than the previous game and borderline requiring the player to grind through free mode to have the slightest chance of clearing an officers' musou mode.

Added DiffLines:

** Gan Ning in the earlier games. Unlike other officers, he is very overpowered. One of his attacks is capable of taking out half of your hit points, meaning that you'll be nearly defeated or dead and will have to start that stage over and either avoid him or hope that you're lucky/skilled enough to somehow defeat him.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Dynasty Warriors 8's DLC includes faithfully recreated older costumes updated to current gen graphics. This allows people who weren't happy with the changes that 6 brought to certain characters[[note]]In particular, Sun Shangxiang flipping from tomboy to girly girl, Liu Bei being de-aged from world weary general to 20 year old, and Dong Zhuo looking more and more like a hideous fat old man[[/note]] to play as their original characterisation.

Added DiffLines:

** ''9'': It's receiving flak for unnecessary changing characters' unique weapons for {{Moveset Clone}}s.

* SoBadItsGood: Most people who like ''Dynasty Warriors 3'' the most like the higher difficulty than the preceding ''Dynasty Warriors 2'', alongside the hilariously terrible voice acting. There are some good voices, but it's not easy to find most of them.

** "God of War, my foot! What's so great about Guan Yu!?"; said by Fu Shiren during [=DW4=]'s rendition, this pretty much become the go-to phrase for anti-Shu fans, especially on Guan Yu, who likes to point out not only his mediocre performance historically but also [[CharacterShilling on how a lot of his kids are claimed to do nothing but praise how great their father is and how other officers look up to him somehow, when his battle prowess weren't that much.]]

* TaintedByThePreview: With regards to ''Dynasty Warriors 9'', some fans became increasingly livid when some of the characters share the same weapons (such as Sun Ce having the same weapon as Zhou Cang). While there's ''no confirmation'' yet if there will be cloned movesets, several fans are worried that the possibility of this is likely to happen and some outright declare that they will not buy the game because of this.

** ''7: Extreme Legends'' and any achievements that require unlocking "titles", with Lu Bu's top title being the hardest (part and parcel for the overall achievement of getting all allies' top title). The first seven titles are a cakewalk, but the last requires 1000 K.O.s while maintaining 70% of total {{Hit Point}}s, using no Musou Attacks, and selecting a 10-star ranked stage to "Nightmare" difficulty. For the uninitiated, Nightmare difficulty is the most realistic experience of what happens when a OneManArmy goes up against several hundred {{Mook}}s, with health easily dropping from 200% to zero in an instant, making this frustrating without proper setups.

** ''3: Extreme Legends'': Focusing on officers not in the three kingdoms, often breaking ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms'' {{Canon}}

** ''8: Extreme Legends'': Lousy LevelGrinding experience brought on by the new features (bodyguard special abilities, repetitive battles in Ambition Mode, an AbsurdlyHighLevelCap, etc.), generally less well-made stages, and the somewhat confusing plot to Lu Bu's story.
