It is an awesome game! WELL worth the money. I don't usually buy DLC, but I did for HW. You really get your money's worth. Hundreds of hours of gameplay!

JohnathanACE1034d ago

Yep, and all of the DLC isn't even out yet. The DLC just adds to an already great and complete game, the way DLC should be.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1034d ago

Amazing game. They should do Fire Emblem Warriors.

3-4-51034d ago

eww no.

This gameplay style is boring.

Swing sword once = take out 30+ enemies.....that just ruins the immersion or fun from the game.

After 2 minutes of that, it becomes mindless and not that fun.

* I am glad that they are at least attempting to branch out and try new things though.

More collabs in the Video Game industry could be a good thing.

It might be someones cup of tea, so why not?

Because they slapped Zelda on it

marloc_x1034d ago

You should be an industry analyst..

JohnathanACE1034d ago

Yeah, they slapped Zelda on it but in a good way that makes fans of both series happy. The games actually pretty fun and I like the idea of Nintendo mixing franchises like this.

-Foxtrot1034d ago

Not really a good way because it shows you in reviews how a brand can influence them. If this was just a normal Dynasty Warriors game it wouldn't be getting the sales, reviews and reception it's been getting.

Doesn't that say something about the overall state of the industry.

"If this was just a normal Dynasty Warriors game it wouldn't be getting the sales, reviews and reception it's been getting. "

And you're always bitching about how Nintendo is still making Mario games. Well there you go, you answered all of your questions.

Metallox1034d ago

Captain Obvious had to arrive someday.

Not trying to be rude, but it's selling obviously because it has Zelda themes everywhere. And that sells everywhere, no matter on what console it is.

Xof1034d ago (Edited 1034d ago )

Also, by changing their core mechanics some to emulate Zelda, they also made the best Musou game to date. Locking on to enemies and being able to roll/dodge are huge innovations for the franchise.

They were also able to do much note imaginative movesets due to no longer being constrained by a real world setting.

So, yeah: Hyrule Warriors deserves its success.

AKR1033d ago (Edited 1033d ago )

Yes, because themeing your product with a household name is SOOOO bad. (/s)

Both Nintendo and Temco Koei are smiling pretty right now at the revenue, while Wii U owners are enjoying the game. Nobody loses.

MrSwankSinatra1033d ago

I own a Wii U, Zelda is one of my top 3 favorite franchises of all time and I though Hyrule Warriors was complete ass. All it is, is Dynasty Warriors with a TLoZ skin on it. So I lost out on 60 dollars....

I have to buy this game. I have been dragging my feet because so many games have come out but now is the time. I have heard too many good things about it.

Big_Game_Hunters1034d ago (Edited 1034d ago )

I'll buy it when it gets a complete edition, maybe. I do only want it because its a zelda spinoff though, i would never buy a DW game. I don't see how thats a bad thing. Its not much different than the Expendables, as an action movie its average at best, but you watch it to see your favorite old action heros fighting together.
