Those who have played the game on 3DS won’t find as much new content, but they may appreciate the much improved graphics and two-player mode. There aren’t many exclusive features for those looking to triple-dip, but having everything in one substantial and gorgeous package is enough to warrant considering playing the best version of this hack-and-slash game.
Not only is it one of the best Warriors spin-offs to date, but chances are you’re a Zelda fan if you own the Switch and it’s just a great spinoff of Link’s adventures altogether. Can it get repetitive? Sure, but that’s the nature of Action RPGs like this – Warriors games are essentially 3rd-Person Diablos without the loot hunt. Playing coop is a joy, the Adventure Mode is an awesome addition, and raising your own fairy is surprisingly cute and meaningful. With all the content on display, it’s worth the full price of entry.
I love this game. I loved it on the WiiU too. With a fresh coat of paint on the Switch version makes it look and run better for sure. Story is good (not great) The combat is good if you like this style. You have a lot of charaters to choose(some better then other. But over all Yes, this is an awesome game and better then AOC by a few scores.
Hyrule Warriors is back with an outstanding amount of content and a few quality of life adjustements that improve the basic formula. It gets repetitive and grindy at times, but if you like the musou genre, this purchase is a no brainer.
This is one of the most fleshed out and content-filled Warriors games I’ve seen in a long time, and even if you aren’t a Zelda fan, there’s still plenty here to charm you if you’re not turned off by the repetitive combat.
A great time-sink game, featuring mindless but fun action gameplay that offers up the potential for dozens - if not hundreds - of hours of content. Though it certainly feels like a game that’s too bloated in places, it manages to balance the Zelda and Dynasty Warriors elements well. Group all of that with stellar presentation and impressive portable gameplay, and you’ve got a game that does a great job of doing something new (and weird) with a classic Nintendo property.
I consider this game the epitome of all Warriors games, even by today’s standards. I suppose a part of that is because of all the changes made in the “Definitive” edition that truly made it definitive. This is the only Warriors game I would ever need. And yet, it only manages to pull out a 7 because I can’t bring myself to recommend a Warriors game over another game, even if it is the best one.
You get to choose your favorite Zelda characters to fight as while attempting to secure victory for Hyrule. I will admit I enjoyed playing the cast of characters available. There’s a wide variety! And for all I can tell, they each have a unique fighting identity that makes a single battle with them feel different from any another. The adventure mode in particular added a lot of variability to fights with different goals. Legend mode has a more dynamic feel in fights, but those fights also last three times longer. Mastering the skill ceiling isn’t difficult, but you have to learn and apply all the mechanics of the game to finish the battle as fast as you can.
Adventure mode contains most features used in the game, such as the My Fairy feature and unlockable characters. Legend mode contains unlockable characters and the game’s story.
Play Hyrule Warriors to unlock your inner kid, or to satisfy your need for a meaningless grind to max out character trees + levels, or to spend time with a child as you trample the hosts of evil by mashing the same button combo over and over again, so much so that you remember all of their moves even years after you’ve stopped playing.
This was one of my all time favorite games on the Wii U, but here we are on their 3rd release of the same game and there's still no online co-op. That means for all of those wonderful Adventure mode missions that just absolutely require a 2nd player to complete you're going to have to go over to your friend's house, bring your system, and play them all twice so you both get credit. It gets tedious fast. They really doubled down on the missions that require a 2nd player to the extent that it's a bad combination without giving us online co-op. It's a great game, one of the greatest ever made, but once was enough. It's time to stop milking every penny out of their fans and make a proper sequel with online co-op. Add some Breath of the Wild content! This is the best Warriors franchise rendition yet and it struck lightning on the Wii U, but it doesn't strike twice or three times as the case may be.
This is a very shallow game. A boring button masher, grindfest. Worthless and pointless. With so many amazing gaming experiences to be had, why waste your time playing this or any Warriors style game for that matter? It's baffling to me.
