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.
Mixing the Zelda series and the Dynasty Warriors series is a genius idea. This is a super fun game and a must buy.
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.
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!
Waiting for a zelda game like this my whole life!!
I have been waiting and waiting for Nintendo to make a game like this for Zelda and they have finally made it!! The new character costume pack looks amazing and I just pre ordered it!! Cant wait!!
BEST ZELDA SPIN OFF
omg, this game is AWESOME!!! I don't know why people are whining that its not a "quest" zelda game. This game is completely different from the original series. This game is SOOO FUN. I love combos and stuff. The graphics are just awesome! I hate to say it but ------Ever since i played this particular Zelda game, all others pale in comparison!------ By that i mean by visuals, graphics, music, gameplay, the WHOLE thing, Except the part where its not the actual zelda where u go in dungeons and stuff. THIS GAME IS A MUST HAVE FOR ZELDA FANS AND NON FANS!
