[Polygon] Hyrule Warriors review: Old tricks

Polygon :

Hyrule Warriors isn't a Legend of Zelda game. Nor is it really a Nintendo game. Hyrule Warriors is a collaboration between Nintendo and two outside studios: Team Ninja, the studio behind Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden, and Omega Force, creators of the Dynasty Warriors series.
Instead of the traditional puzzle-solving and exploration focus of the Zelda games, Hyrule Warriors features hack-and-slash gameplay that defines titles like Dynasty Warriors. As a sort of mash-up, Hyrule Warriors takes that action gameplay and layers on top settings, characters and themes lifted from nearly three decades of Zelda history."

I don't understand why would anybody go there to get an accurate review.

Another review judging a game not for what it is but for what it isn't! So what if a Zelda game having a spin-off and try another formula? Yeah, F U too Polygon!

CertifiedGamer1376d ago

IGN gave it a bad score too. Just admit that this game sucks.

deafdani1376d ago

@CertifiedGamer: 7 out of 10 isn't a bad score. 7 means it's a decent game, albeit with some issues or drawbacks.

Also, the majority of reviews for this game actually talk good things overall about it. This review is i the minority here.

what it "isnt" though, is good, no matter what its trying to be.

Polygon is full of fa66s, no offence to actual people of the homosexual gender, it just feels like they are these pretentious little people that need to belittle other things to feel like they're a factor in the industry.

Polygon has NO SHAME.

They don't care that they HAVE NO INTEGRITY....

Also plastered all over Yahoo, so anybody not into gaming thinks THIS is what a gaming review is, and thus get and spread false news based on what they see.

Somebody should do some serious investigative journalism into Polygon and how shady they are.

filchron1376d ago

dude, the game is not good. deal with it. play it yourself and you'll see its no OoT. people expect zelda games to be "good" no matter what theyre trying to be.

Ah, good old Polygon. Where would the gaming community be without them? Dont worry, Call of Duty is out soon.... **** This guy is TROLLING, he also wrote the Metro Review and gave it LESS ******

MasterCornholio1376d ago

Holy crap.


No way is the game terrible. It can't be since its a Zelda game.

Disclaimer: I dont count the CDI games as Zelda games.

deafdani1376d ago

I'm not saying this game is bad, but this isn't a true Zelda game. It's a Dinasty Warriors + Zelda spin off.

WeAreLegion1376d ago

It's a great Musou game, if you like the genre. I personally don't, so I never would have reviewed the game. Not sure why this author did.

filchron1376d ago

What youre saying makes no sense. so people should only review games they like so every game can have a high score right? a good game is supposed to MAKE a person a fan of it's genre. thats the point. and then they write about their experience. is that making sense to you? The author was not playing a good game so he wrote about his experience. stop with the fanboy mentality please man. I love Zelda as much as the next guy but geez.

deafdani1375d ago (Edited 1375d ago )

What he says makes perfect sense. If you're going to put someone to review a game, you should make sure the person has an affinity for the genre of the game he's supposed to review.

If you are my boss and you know I hate first person shooters, and task me with reviewing a Call of Duty game, that's bullshit. Plain and simple.

That said, I haven't seen anything on the Polygon review that indicates me whether the author likes or dislikes the Dinasty Warriors style of games. So, I don't know if this review is fair or not.

Zodiac1376d ago

Same guy writes two reviews, but with different scores!?

I just..i..i don't know.

ThePsychoGamer1376d ago

No, they weren't written by the same guy, I get the feeling that RAFFwaff thinks Kayant (the person who submitted the reviews to N4G) is the author of both, but in actuality, the metro review was written by a man named David Jenkins while the polygon was written a girl name Alexa Ray Corriea
