VGChartz's Paul Broussard: "It’s difficult for me to view Age of Calamity as anything other than a significant disappointment and a notable step back. This is easily the worst of the three Nintendo Warriors games, and the most interesting element that could have set it apart is largely just wasted potential. Unless you're just desperate for any sort of BotW related content, I can't in good conscience recommend this. If you’re primarily interested in bashing monsters as Nintendo characters, the definitive edition of Hyrule Warriors has a far better variety of fighters, while Fire Emblem Warriors has a much better combat system, and both are available on Switch at a cheaper price. If you’re interested in the prospect of returning to the world of Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity does nothing with it and just raises more questions than answers. I can't say I hate Age of Calamity, but I am saddened by it, and how little it did with the intriguing potential it had."
