Hyrule Warriors Preview: Not Your Typical Zelda Experience | Zelda Informer

Zelda Informer: "For starters, I have never really played Dynasty Warriors game before. I’ve seen them played in the past, but I never really saw the appeal. I could argue I still don’t see the appeal even after playing Hyrule Warriors, but for some reason the Zelda goodness has overwhelmed me and it feels so good hacking and slashing my way through some of the most memorable baddies in the Zelda universe. The gameplay is simplistic and you can simply button mash B all the way through the experience to this point, but that’s not fun. In fact I dare say you may get bored playing that way.

If there is nothing else I take away from my experience to this point, it’s that there is a lot of reward and feeling of superiority by mastering the combo system.

The game looks pretty fun, I'll probably pick it up when it drops a little in price like mario kart.

That's only a discount on Amazon, actually. It's $60 everywhere else and that discount is only for a limited time. Nintendo still sells TWW HD for $50 on Amazon.

I have been playing dynasty warriors since the second one, I like the game, when having a bad day come home and kill about 1000 soldier and see if that helps.
