...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.

*Googles*

Wow. How did I not know that?

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.

Hmm... good point, but they already have to redesign the levels to accommodate the new gameplay, and build new assets for the new graphics engine.

The reaction to this game confuses me. DW8 comes and the reaction is either ambivalence or "Oh a new DW game, I wonder if its the exact same as all the others. Oh wait I guess I answered my own question *sneer sneer sneer*" but you take the same game and give it Zelda wallpaper and suddenly "OMFG I JIZZED MY PANTS I MUST HAVE THIS NAO". I just don't get it.

OT: So its a solid DW game. I'm ok with this, I'm really enjoying 8 on the PS4. One more for the "worth picking up once something comes along to make me actually buy a WiiU" list.

This is one of those games that makes me sad I won't be able to play it because I won't be buying a Wii U for it. Dang. :|

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.

Difficult? Outside of the outragously overpowered ones, their rarely hard. Except in that one PSP game designed around coop. Trying that three on one part was both the most hectic and awesome fight I've ever seen in a game and also the most frustratingly hard.

Because people are hypocrites. It appears to be Dynasty Warriors with more annoying generals.

I'm seriously on the fence about this one. I love Zelda as much as the next guy, and I used to have a blast playing co-op Samurai Warriors on PS2 with my friend back in school. But having friends over to play games just isn't something I do any more, and it seems like it just wouldn't be as much fun as a solo experience.

That said, if they announced Tingle DLC then the decision would become a whole lot simpler.

By the way, are there mounts in the game? I've seen Link riding Epona in a cutscene, but I haven't seen any mention of this being an option in-game. Seems like a missed opportunity.

ah, DLC officially announced:

People aren't sure whether the weapons refer to brand new styles for characters or that their current ones will get new tiers. Cia, Volga, and Wizzro will be made playable in an update. Good times

my only issue(and not necessarily with jim's review specifically) is that dynasty warrior games come out regularly and usually get shit on for being rehashes and reskins of the same game. both reviewers and gamers regularly dismiss the series for re using the same core gameplay and being incredibly repetitive, across all of it's titles, and yet, a zelda skinned one gets a pass, even tho it follows the same dynasty warrior formula. i find this kinda troubling because it suggests that some gamers will accept anything as long as it's wrapped in nintendo.

I loath the old Dynasty Warrior games, the newer Dynasty Warrior games are to repetitive ,I'll wait for bargain bin. Yes I am one of those bastards that hates to grind my life away. At least there are not QTEs in this....that killed Fist of the North Star.

"Sod those guys, anyway."

Yep, this has always been my stance on the Warriors games. Funnily enough it seems critics are actually warming more to the series. I don't want to be one of those people who will brush off opinions because they didn't "get it" but...

...sometimes it seems they just don't "get it".

Reviews for this game have overall been pretty good (although I suspect the Zelda brand helped a lot there). That being said, some particularly eye brow raising reviews have come out of the woodwork to.

The Metro being my favorite with "the defilement of Zelda"!? Funny considering even the lowest score on Metacritic still calls it great Zelda fan service... Seriously, some people...

Caiphus:
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?

I don't have a PS4, but did break down and get a Wii U earlier this summer. Have yet to regret it.

I've only been playing the HD remake of Wind Waker and Mario Kart 8 -- it's awesome.
I can't wait to slap Hyrule Warriors in either. Smash coming soon, Mario Kart is a ball.

Perhaps I'm a Nintendo fanboy... though I did skip the Wii for a PS3....

Its nice to see someone who doesn't come across as a massive hypocrite when they review this thing. It seems every other review basically boils down to "I think Dysnasty Warriors is a shitty series. Wait, they put Zelda skins in? 10/10! BEst game evar!"

I just knew Jim would have the pleasure of reviewing this one.

Yeah this is going to be a first day purchase for me... and I haven't first day purchased anything in over a year.

Nevermind misread post.

I was REALLY excited about this, until you mentioned that it focused on three games I don't actually care that much about.

>_>

I've never played a Dynasty Warriors game, though I'm a Zelda fan and the brawler, button-mashing-y gameplay looks like lots of fun and lots of stress relief. Putting them together just seems like the ideal marriage.

Man it's been a long time since I've been this genuinely excited about a game release.

I haven't finished it yet but I'm loving what I've played so far! Got the special edition and the scarf is really cool. Such a fun game!
