I played it!!!
I played the demo at SDCC 2014 and I was impressed! A lot of things will be familiar if you played Dynasty warriors before. Then the game blends in things you will remember from previous Zelda games. They have sweet characters to choose from such as zelda, link, Midna and Impa and more are to follow. Also each character has different versions such a you can play link with a sword or fire staff. This game is gonna be super fun cant wait till it releases!!!!
Hyrule Warriors is a Must Own for Wii U
This game is a love letter to Zelda fans. I have put about 8 hours into it and still there is so much for me to unlock. The first thing to remember is that Hyrule Warriors is not a typical Zelda game with the typical puzzles and ease of exploration. Hyrule Warriors, developed in collaboration with the team behind Dynasty Warriors, is a fun yet challenging hack and slash combat game where fast action, strategy and perseverance win out in a fight. The premise is that evil unknown warriors have invaded Hyrule and its up to Link, Zelda and Impa to defeat their onslaught on the castle. However, after Zelda disappears and Link and Impa meet some new unfamiliar companions, they realize that this ordeal is greater than they imagined. The game spans multiple Zelda game universes including Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess and Ocarina of Time. The key to victory in each level is to defeat your enemies as well as conquer the enemy territories and make them your own...while of course, protecting your allies and home base. Conditions will change during battle so your decisions are crucial in how you fight and one must remember that a time limit exists so play wisely. As you progress you unlock new characters both good and evil that you can play as and upgrade with their own unique combos and fighting styles. Upgrades come in the form of new combos, increasing levels and new weapons (some that you can forge together to create more powerful ones as well as many Zelda familiars such as bombs, the boomerang, hookshot and bow). In addition, to the Legend Story mode, Free Mode where you can replay any level you have beaten and Challenge mode, you can treat yourself to Adventure mode - a series of challenges that allow you upgrade your characters further while exploring a replica map of the original Legend of Zelda 8 Bit World! The Soundtrack is gorgeous, complete with original music and remixes of some of the series most popular tunes. Not to mention there is DLC upcoming that will be adding more characters, challenges and even Epona!...Link's Horse! you can even co-op with a friend where one uses the Gamepad while the other uses the Personally, I am having a blast! For me, it's not perfect, but the unlockables as well as combo upgrades, different combat style and Zelda cameos truly are amazing and keep me coming back for more. It is definitely a unique experience for the Zelda universe and in my opinion a must buy for every Wii U owner.
Perfect Game for Xtreme Fighters!
A collaboration of The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Wariors? This game in my opinion is going to be one of the best of 2014. At E3 they previewed the gameplay with Midna and Link and I have to say that both characters were just drop dead amazing! Two completely different fighting styles and completely different moves. You will also notice that the user interface is the same as The Legend of Zelda games. Your life is displayed as hearts. Overall, you will notice which parts of the game are from Dynasty Warriors and fro The Legend of Zelda. This game will be a must have for anyone!
OH GOD PLEASE YES!!
I WANT ALL OF IT!....IN MY MOUTH!! JUST SO MUCH! RIGHT THE FUF NOW! NONTENDO PLEASE GIVE ME AN INJECTION OF THIS SWEET STICKY GOODNESS!!
Good but not Great
Its basically a Diablo styled Zelda game. There are a ridiculous amount of enemies which you encounter over and over again. There aren't as many challenges/puzzles as classic Zelda games have had. The boss battles are incredibly disappointing. When you have to battle a boss there are still hundreds of small enemies around you, unless you spend forty minutes clearing the map. So instead of figuring out the boss' weakness and exploiting it, as you do in classic Zelda games, I've just had to beat a few with brute force. You are also forced to use all the playable characters in the story mode instead of just using your favorite character. This requires you to either replay missions to level up characters or spend money to "train" them in the menu. The challenge modes will give the game more replay-ability but the main story probably isn't going to be one you'll want to play over and over again. I would still recommend it, but be prepared to do the same thing hundreds of times.
A Zelda game for the group!
I know the game plays exactly like Destiny Warriors, but the Zelda theme is what makes it awesome in every aspect. If you're a LoZ fan you should get this game just to play as Link, Shiek and many more characters. Each has their own set of moves and special weapons making it more diverse. While it is fun to play alone this game really excels when you have someone to play with. Having a friend by your side in this game makes fighting the hordes so much more fun and exciting, especially with the objectives. So if you want a game to play with friends or just a LoZ game this is defiantly one you should pick up!
I can't wait
I think this game will be really fun, I've been waiting for the Legend of Zelda wii u but I think this can keep me entertained until it comes, I'm a very big fan of Zelda, i've played every single one, but haven't beaten all of them yet. I like the idea of this game, it's something completely different from the series, it looks really cool, and how you have all these special attacks and that you can play as Impa. I can't wait for this game.
Just got into it today and I've done hordes and missions, this put them together in a confusing way. Kill the enemies, find the boss, or protect an area? Can't be in six places, there's no way to do everything with stuff constantly popping up.
Hyrule Warriors is a successfull experiment!
When Hyrule Warriors was first announced, I didn't know what to think of it. But one thing that I was excited for, was that this was definitely going to be a very big love-letter to all Zelda fans. When I finally played it, I was right. I invited two friends over on the release date and we beat the story mode and got a fifth of the adventure map done during that night, and we still wanted to keep playing it. This game revolves around you having power. The idea of the game is to capture various enemy keeps, which are peppered through the battlefield, and take control to defeat the enemy captain. That's how most missions will go, but in adventure mode, there are many different challenges. sometimes you have to defeat a certain amount of enemies under 10 minutes, or you might have to defeat the correct enemy in a quiz. That's just two of the many challenges you will receive. And all of the missions can be played in two-player co-op (that goes for both adventure and legend mode). It should be said however, that the frame-rate and the graphics will drop if do play in two player. Some people do get bothered by this, but I personally didn't. Also, to all completionists out there, good luck with this game! It's got a massive amount of content and it has a lot more if you purchase the DLC. This game not that easy at times. It can be if you are just playing through levels casually, but collecting all gold skulltulas, heart pieces, weapons, and other collectibles will take a lot of time and strategy! Overall, this game is not only my favorite game on the Wii U, but also my favorite game of 2014. It has many playable characters, a great amount of content, but most importantly, it's a blast playing no matter how many times I already have!
Mixing the Zelda series and the Dynasty Warriors series is a genius idea. This is a super fun game and a must buy.
