by jcarlo17 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!!!!

by JediPrime 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.

Rated 8 out of 10 by SpicyRooster 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.
Rated 5 out of 10 by GrizzCrisps Dissapointing
This game is just flat out bare bones. This game is pretty OK at first but then this game gets EXTREMELY boring, i found myself never ever touching the game after a day or 2, definitely not worth more than $30, iin my opinion this game is one of the worst 1st party games on wii u, its extremely boring and the graphics are not to good. This game has a 2p mode but its ridicously laggy, almost unplayable. Overall the game is not that great and the only redeeming quality about it is the roster of characters, there are many characters you can unlock (if u are not bored by the time the 1st level ends) there is also quite a few DLC packs, although this game is missing a few iconic characters that i question why they did not decide to add in the game for exmaple Skull Kid. This game just was a huge dissapointment
Rated 9 out of 10 by TyronBash Just stupid fun
this game is funif you wanna play a hack and slash game where the story takes a back seat i usually play it when i finish a long session of zelda
Rated 10 out of 10 by KingLink87 Amazing Zelda Experience
This game is hours and hours of awesome. I can't think of anything negative about it (other than the sometimes heavy-handedness with the "we have to find the hero" aspect of the story instead of leaving things open to interpretation). It's fun to play alone or with others, and the DLC is mind-blowing. Getting to play as all these different characters is amazing. There's a good opportunity for mindless fun in the vein of Mario Kart as well as harsh challenge. The only thing this game needs is the Magic Armor as a costume for Link and it would be the perfect game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Zahl Great Spinoff, but Still Bland
Hyrule Warriors was a great way for Nintendo to explore different game styles appealing towards adults. I consider this a success among it's genre but as a game in general it's still missing something. I got bored of this game way too quickly but then again that's where DLC comes in.
Nintendo is finally doing DLC and they're doing it right! If you're interested in this game and you're already a fan of Dynasty Warriors or other games in this style I highly recommend it and I wish you to purchase the DLC. It's worth every penny.
Rated 9 out of 10 by noahj Tough but fun!
Got my copy on Friday and have been playing it since. It is a very fun game, but can get you a little frustrated in later levels, and this was Normal mode. I don't want to spoil the fun, so I won't go into details. Just know sometimes I was really wanting to throw my controller. Like all the previews have said, this is more Dragon Warriors style than Zelda style. I had a lot of fun bashing through the enemies, but if you aren't into button mashers then this is probably not the game for you. Graphics are very good, but don't be expecting Call of Duty realism, but you already knew that. There is slight clipping every once and a while, but not bad. The framerate does drop when a lot of enemies are present but not so bad the game is unplayable. Combos graphics and cutscene graphics are very well done. I would recommend this game highly!
Rated 9 out of 10 by BaconBoyGaming Great Game!
This is a Legend of Zelda spinoff game that mixes the action of Dynasty Warriors, which I've never played, with tons of Zelda fanfare. It is very fun to play and the gameplay and controls are solid. The graphics are fun to look at, and also, the game has a high pixel count. The lasting appeal is high as the Adventure Mode is long and it is fun to replay.
