Stevivor, "Hyrule Warriors is an odd beast. On one hand, it's kind of brilliant to pair the universe of The Legend of Zelda with the gameplay of the Dynasty Warriors franchise. On the other, it takes everything that makes Zelda, Zelda and replaces it with endless hacking and slashing. I'm torn. At this stage it's great to see games of any description coming to Wii U, but at the same time I'm not convinced that Nintendo has made the right choice here."
