Hyrule Warriors Review - Triforce, Trifurious

A beautiful blend of button mashing madness and Zelda-flavored silliness.

Read Full Article

I was just listening through the old Podtoid episodes. Man, this game must have been a dream come true for you, Jim! :D

Games like this are making me seriously question whether I want to get a Wii U or PS4 this Christmas.

Maybe I'll compromise and get an Xbone. That's how compromises work, right?

#IStandWithGanondorf!

Anyway, good to here that this is great from one of the few people I agree with when it comes to this style of game. :D

This review doesn't surprise me in the least XD

Next Friday can't get here sooner!

A wonderful review, a nice treat to actually read a review from someone who enjoys Musou gameplay (there does seem to be a tendency to have those who do not enjoy or are neutral on Musou games review them), and I shall be eagerly obtaining my copy this Friday.

It is a shame that series representation primarily focuses on just three Zelda games (Tingle was my most wanted playable character of all), but still, it'll be great to go through the Musou gameplay, tearing down hoards of enemies as Fi and Darunia.

I haven't played a warriors game since DW4 and SW2, and sure as hell don't enjoy Zelda games (tried WW and OOT but was bored half way through), but I'm certainly hyped for this game so much I preordered it two months back!! That blue haired girl and Impa, Midna sure look super fun to use!! Can't wait to play it!!

I would get a Wii U for this and Bayonetta 2... if I had any faith in Bayonetta 2 being as amazing as the first one. We'll see.

Agreed. Luckily I preordered so I just have to go and pick it up. Plus I get the Skyward Sword DLC with it, which looks hilarious because Skyward Sword's Zelda had such a passive personality in the game, and seems like the last person I'd see destroying a horde of enemies. XD

Eh... At the end of the day it's still a Dynasty Warriors game to me, and I only pick those up when they're cheap and i'm really bored.

I pre-ordered from Best Buy as well just so I could have that specific Zelda costume!

Would have preferred Gamestop since there is one way closer to my house, but it'll be totes worth.

So, how long until the accusations of bias come around? How long until "you only gave this game a good review because you like dynasty warriors" or something like that?

OT: I haven't played a Warriors game in a long time, so this sounds like a perfect one to pick up. Going to register on Club Nintendo and stomp fools as OoT Ganondorf.

I expected a review like this after seeing Jim's reaction to its announcement. I may not have played a Dynasty Warriors game yet but if this game proves fun enough I may start checking the actually series out.

The complaint about facing enemy generals (heroes?) sounds like it will really annoy me really quickly. Facing enemy generals in Samurai/Dynasty Warriors games was already my least favorite thing to do, especially when they were so hilariously broken. There was one mission in Dynasty Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper where I kept losing over and over and over again because I'd get caught by the end generals Musou move and go from a full health bar to dead on medium difficulty. Wasn't even underleveled either. I wanted to tear my hair out.

I'll still pick it up, but I hope it isn't as obnoxious as it sounds.

"Hmm...do I want sweet or do I want savory? I know! I'll go teabag an angry pitbull instead!"

OT: I've always loved the Warriors series of games. I've tolerated Zelda. This? This is gonna be a lot of fun.

I think this review proves Jim is being the bias against his own bias to pander to those outraged gamergaters. We all know he really wanted to give the game a 6 million out of 5 but he changed his score to not upset them.

Said the same thing myself when I saw who was reviewing. HOWEVER! It seems fair enough.

I wonder if they will release a Mario version in the future? :-)

Well, my experience with Dynasty Warriors comes entirely from the Dynasty Warriors Gundam series, (I have no interest in the Chinese epic the other series tend to be based on) and in those I didn't find enemy pilots to be particularly hard or cheap or anything because most every mobile suit has at least 1 combo attack designed specifically for killing them and it doesn't take long to figure out how to best counter them. I don't know about the rest of the series.

As for this review... I was excited about Hyrule Warriors up until reading it because I've looking for another Dynasty Warriors game that is outside the Chinese stuff, but I'm a bit leery about about the game after what this review reveals. I mean, I already don't like that they only have 13 playable characters, the story mode doesn't seem like something that would last long, and the adventure and challenge modes sound like they'd get tedious and samey after awhile.

With Bayonetta 2 just a month away and this review, the day when I get a Wii U needs to come sooner (come on time, keep ticking forward).

I'm going to guess that other TLoZ games will come as DLC or something.

I had that same mindset due to getting into them with Samurai Warriors 2 (that has not aged well btw).
I ended up getting 8 on steam for $30 and I feel I owe the devs a lot more than that.
70 hours.
It literally ended up being 1 hour longer than my attempt at 100%ing Dragon Age Origins Ultimate edition (I skipped Golems though) and I'm not 100% done with it.

It's campy as hell, but any game that gives me an RPG's worth of time on one playthrough isn't something I can justify waiting on the bargain bin for, so I had to pick this one up.

My copy was dispatched earlier today, so hopefully it'll be here either tomorrow or the day after. I have no previous experience with any of the Warriors games that came before, but looking at all the videos and how over the top they were made me cave.

Now that we know Hyrule Warriors is good, I can only hope the same for Dragon Quest Heroes.
...
Dragon Quest Warriors?
...
DRAGON WARRIORS! Yeah, that's the ticket.

Did they seriously not include any major content based on A Link to the Past?

If so, I'm sorry to say that Nintendo has REALLY fallen prey to the allure of DLC. Because no way are they going to ignore their SNES past in a core franchise game, when their biggest core-franchise cash cow on their last-gen system was a direct copy of that character's SNES jaunt.

I'll still get the game itself... if nothing else, just so I can,

    1: double the number of games I own in which Zelda is actually a fully playable character, thus rewarding good behavior on the part of Nintendo, and

    2: finally see what all the fuss is about with the whole Dynasty Warriors thing,

...but I will not buy any DLC, unless they offer kilotons of new content for dirt cheap (like, say, if I can get Aghanim, Marin, the Skull Kid, and both Oracles as playable characters, plus a new storyline/campaign in which I fight the Nightmares and Majora's Mask and I'm given some reason for doing so, AND I can get all of this for less than $25. Any DLC less awesome than that, I will not reward Nintendo for offering).

Why only 2 of the Oracles? The third made an appearance in Minish Cap along with Vaati.

I dont know why but to me Nintendo games really need to be stale as fuck to be called stale, otherwise they get a pass.

I will give a pass on this review since Jim does enjoy Dynasty Warriors on its own but I see a lot of people going "I dont never liked DW but this one its so fun" as if a Zelda skin changed the entire game concept. The same goes with all the other games like Smash Bros, everyone hypes and pukes rainbows at any tease of what is some new character.

Man... I think there are more than enough quality titles for me to get a Wii U now. This game looks awesome (as a huge Dynasty Warriors fan). I guess I know what I'm doing when I get paid!

I wish I could be like you. I just have to save money for a wii u though. And then some for wonderful 101, bayonetta and this game. Hell, maybe I can also get super mario 3D world, though I'm not too sure if that'll work for me. And it's backwards compatible right? Maybe I can get some wii games on it too then.

I just... need to be a bit more patient for now... And do what I need to do...

Haha, I have been putting off buying it for a while. I have saved money and I think this puts me over the limit of good games before I adopt a console.

Also, it is backwards compatible, so there is some good Wii games you can followup on. I would love to play through Metroid: Other M again. It's story was shit, but it was a good classic style Metroid game.

Everything I've seen with this game makes it look pretty good. If I had a Wii U, I'd be getting this.

It's a Zelda game. People only complain about scores and reviews on Zelda games when they're low. Liking a Zelda game doesn't make you TEH BIAS, it means you're doing it right!

Because when you get down to it, LttP is with the 2D side of things. The problem with the 2D games is due to the fact that they would have to create a TON of environments and characters with no real 3D reference thus adding to the workload. Plus the 2D entries, due to limited resources, have nowhere near the breadth and personality of the 3D environments (well, at least not until Minish Cap). For the 3D titles it was just a lot easier to adapt.

I loved Heavenly Sword on the PS3 and I have been looking for a good mash'em army peons game since then, I tried Dynasty Warriors 'Nexts' on the Vita and it was ok but I wanted something more. I know that Jim likes these sorts of games and he's given it a good rating so I think I'm buying it.

Well, DLC really isn't what Koei does for characters. For costumes, sure, but they usually will do expansions or sequels for new characters. See every other Warriors game for proof.

I tried playing this game's demo over at Gamestop, having never played a Dynasty Warriors game.

I didn't want to put it down.

I was always a fan of old school beat-em-ups, so maybe that had something to do with it...

#IStandWithGanondorf

Didn't enjoy any of the new-age Zelda games (OoT and onward were made by someone who publicly despised the original series because they were, by his own admission, too hard for him), but this may finally help me get over that...

I mean... it worked for Tron (couldn't watch the original until I saw Legacy and the cartoon), so why not Zelda?

With any luck, I'll be snagging a copy of TP-GC in six months, ready to give it a second shot.
