Hyrule Warriors Review | The Best Warriors Game Ever Made [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn: "Hyrule Warriors doesn't pretend to be anything that it isn't. It does exactly what it says on the tin, producing what is probably the best Warriors game to date, and doing so by taking many of the best aspects of The Legend of Zelda and successfully incorporating them into the classic 1-vs-1000 gameplay. The fan service is astonishing, the level of detail very welcome indeed, and the action can be truly satisfying, with the various bosses going a long way to making the repetitive action seem quite refreshing at times. A triumphant mash-up indeed."

This score and VideoGamer's score are exactly what I expected for this title. If it is somewhere between a 7 and an 8, I am going to be very pleased with this game. Looking forward to playing it with a friend as well.

I don't think it'll convert Warriors haters, but important to realise that the musou genre is as much about reading the battlefield and strategically going where one is needed along with 1-vs-1000 combat.

Either way, as a Zelda and Warriors fan, I've been absolutely loving it. The bosses really do add nice tempo changes to proceedings, and frankly the simple fact of being able to play as Zelda and Impa and Darunia and Midna is utterly glorious.

Reading the battlefield? Strategy? You mean push the X button as many times as possible.

FuzzyPixels1181d ago

No. The better musou titles manage to recreate the ebb and flow of large scale battles with constantly shifting objectives and points of interest - bosses/parameter shifts/reinforcements. This is something that Hyrule Warriors does very well, particularly in later levels and the Adventure Mode.

I havent played it yet but due to the bosses I believe this will feel more challenging than past warriors games. It is nice to see them throw in the creativity of boss battles in the LOZ style to make it feel more LOZ than warriors. The items and adventure mode are sure to help with the classic LOZ feel as well.

I am not as overly critical of games as most people. If a game has a level of entertainment that I enjoy playing regularly, then I am fine with that. I know this game will be one of those.

Yeah, dtoid gave this an 8.5, looking forward to playing with my dad, who hasn't been able to really get into a zelda game since ocarina and link to the past since the games have become somewhat convoluted.

Really good review! You can sense the love for both franchises within this review which makes me feel good about the overall score.

I'm very excited to pick my copy up and play this with my wife.

Once again, Good Job on the review!

See?? Realistic expectations/hype equals money well spent on a fun fan-service game. Bravo!!

Whoa, surely not. Slow down. Don't you know that you have to spend $500 million and target 'mass appeal' to make a good game these days? :P
