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.
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.
The legend of speed fighting Zeldastyle
As a Fan of the Zelda Franchise I found Hyrule Warriors an entertaining game but not really the type of game play most expect from a Zelda game. This all-action spin-off excluded the traditional dungeons and puzzles found in Zelda games, it’s actually a Dynasty Warriors-style layout with a Zelda theme. The graphics of the game are amazing compared to most Zelda games, but the game play was far too quick and removed the challenge most Zelda games offer. It really was just a button mash game. Aside from its different game play it has a story that ties three Zelda games together with an interdimensional crossover, allowing player to choose some of their favorite Zelda characters to play.
Essentially Hyrule Warriors is all about fighting. The process of attacking your way through spawned enemy armies is simple and repetitive, but what keeps you from getting too bored too fast are devastating special attacks that launches enemies into the air. This was especially fun whenever a lot of enemies would appear on screen. In my opinion it is genuinely satisfying to watch the number of simultaneous KOs flash on screen as the flying enemies die by the hundreds. You pretty much play the role of a hero with the power to single-handedly turn the tide of a conflict between lesser soldiers. I liked the feeling that your character was always stronger than 80 percent of the enemies on screen, and the option to change charters was a nice change for a Zelda game. Whether capturing enemy bases or fighting mini-bosses, I always felt like there was something I needed to do or needed to kill, even if the actual act of slaying is pretty much the same thing over and over again.
As I mentioned before Hyrule Warriors the game has a diverse playable roster of 13 familiar Zelda characters including Link, Princess Zelda, Ganondorf, and more. Each has their respected familiar weapons and unique abilities. Each weapon can be upgraded through a surprising depth materializes collecting crafting system. You can collect materials by killing mobs or mini-bosses by replaying stages and farming materials. I was able to build useful equipment to developed character combos, weapons, and special abilities to use in the game play. Creating special badges makes a character more resilient. You can also synthesize cool new weapons at the Smithy and carry over handy traits that add strength or magic properties. It’s handy that you can spend rupees to level up weaker characters, because I felt encouraged to experiment without needing to grind each one for experience.
Boss monsters are the main reason to level up characters and what make the tedious game play worth it. Each main boss reflects from the five different games, such as; Usurper King: Zant from Twilight Princesses, Demon Lord: Ghirahim from Skyward Sword, The Demon King: Ganondorf From almost every Zelda game, and so on. They also offer an impressive bit of power scale, and in keeping with the Zelda series, each boss has an exploitable weakness that makes the games seem more a part of the Zelda series but still far different. Although at the same time these oversized foes feel like weak copies to their Zelda inspiration. In the Legend of Zelda series, a big part of the epic boss fight were designed through smartly laid out maps, which require some situational awareness. The battle against King Dodongo in Ocarina of Time, for example, takes place in a closed-off chamber with a pool of lava in the center, forcing you to use a narrow dry path to avoid getting run over by the beast or fried by the lava. Dropped into the wide-open battlefields of Hyrule Warriors, Dodongo and the other bosses come across as generic damage sponges.
Overall, Hyrule Warriors the game just isn’t much of a challenge compared to the other Zelda games, and even turning up the difficulty level doesn’t do anything for it. On higher settings, the average mini-boss just inflicts more damage and requires double the hits to vanquish, but doesn’t change up his attack pattern. It becomes a monotonous chore to finish one off. I was able to squeeze an hour or two of entertaining game play out of the clever Adventure mode, which repurposes a detailed recreation of the original Legend of Zelda’s map for a clever item hunt. Most of the secrets littered throughout this 8-bit map all tie to existing ones from the NES original game. Using items like bombs or candle flames unlocks a cool new prize, and claimed by engaging in a standard Hyrule Warriors battle on the choosen tile. Since completing missions in either mode will unlock more secret weapons, characters, and styles of combat to enjoy, it gave me a good reason to stick with Hyrule Warriors a little longer. Surprisingly, Hyrule Warriors does a good job of tying together the combat and graphic styles of Dynasty Warriors and the revered characters plus lore of the Legend of Zelda series in a way that makes me feel like there can be so much more potential for future games. Characters customization feels like there is a unique bonus to the simple combat, and the satisfying weapons, rewards, and story make it a fun alternative to the typically serious Zelda games. I surely hope the next game keeps this type of fighting style and graphic so that the new Zelda games can truly reflect from the original idea of having a full world you can explore.
Dynasty Warriors + Zelda
For a cross over game it is not that bad taking out waves of enemies
is fun and the boss battles are challenging at times but with the DLC
that made the even more fun this is a must buy game
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.
Expanding The Zelda Universe To New Boundaries
I'll admit, I've never play a hack-and-slash game in my life. I know what it's like and it is known for its repetitive nature of destroying hordes of enemies and moving to different areas around a specific area. Of course, it doesn't stop me from trying it out for the first time.
I honestly think I would find enjoyment in playing this kind of game. I love destroying hordes of enemies at once with cool weapons. I have pretty high hopes for this game,especially since Zelda and hack-and-slash are a perfect match. This could definitely attract fans of both series to the other. I'm very glad that they are finding ways to incorporate elements of both games into the final product. Although, the biggest benefit of them all is being able to use new characters. Link, Zelda, Impa, Zelda, and Midna are among the mix, but according to the E3 demo, there are 9 different characters to choose from. I am very excited to see which characters show up in the game. Since the Zelda series usually focuses on a single player-controlled character throughout the game, this is a real treat for Zelda fans.
Overall I am very excited for the game and I believe it will be very easy to get into for me. I am especially excited to try a new genre of games with a set of familiar characters with new characters and new Zelda-inspired villians added into this new adventure. This is definitely one of the few huge titles coming this year for the Wii U, and you sure don't want to miss out on it and looks to be a great spinoff
