The Hyrule Warriors Thread

by Cronozilla Sat Nov 01, 2014 7:10 pm

I've never been a huge fan of Dynasty Warriors, mostly due to the repetition, but this amalgamation looks pretty good.

What are everyone's experiences with it so far?

I love this game! I really wasn't sure what to expect and I was well prepared to not like it too much, but I was happily surprised at just how fun it is. Firstly, although it is a Dynasty Warriors game first and foremost, it is more than just that series with a superficial Zelda skin. The developers and Nintendo worked incredibly hard to make this feel like a Zelda game.

I obviously don't mean it plays like Zelda, because obviously it's a spin off and a very different game, but what the developers have done is really inject as much heart and feel from the Zelda series as they could. You have the different items from the Zelda series return, Z-targeting, a rich and diverse cast (including some original characters who fit surprisingly well into the universe), sporadic basic puzzles and lots of levels influenced and based on different areas across lots of different Zelda games. The game is full of fan service.

As for the repetitive gameplay, it actually doesn't get too repetitive, surprisingly. At least not as repetitive as i had anticipated. It's just lots of fun and the game is huge with plenty of modes to play. The main story mode seems pretty long (I still haven't completed it), but on top of that, there's the Adventure mode which is great and there's the challenge mode too.

Finally, the DLC seems to be worth purchasing. I actually went for the season pass and the first pack is great.

I got really intrigued after I saw the E3 Treehouse demonstration where they pull the MM moon down as a big attack.

If it isn't as gratingly repetitive as DW games usually are, that sounds great. It's my one beef with that series.

I've never really played much of the Dynasty Warriors game, but the gameplay, although repetitive in nature, just doesn't seem to have that problem too much. I don't know, it's weird. I thought I'd get bored of it straight away, but I didn't. I think it's the huge array of characters you can play as, different combos and moves you can do, the upgrades, different modes and the constant desire to know what cool level from previous Zelda games is going to come up next, that keeps it interesting.

Don't get me wrong though, it's probably not the kind of game you will want to play solidly and power through, but regular short bursts are fine for me.

Have played through Legend mode and begun unlocking things in Adventure mode (as well as a little bit of replaying Legend on higher difficulties/to get Skulltulas), but got distracted by Bayonetta.

Need to get back to this though, it WAS the reason I bought my WiiU

So I finally got to play the local multi-player of the game. I heard lots of horrible things about it and I don't understand why. Sure there is framerate drops, but the game still plays great! It is infinitely easier with another player, but I found it to be a lot of fun and easier to multi-task the chaos that surrounds the missions.

What is up with people's obsession with framerate. I understand if you get slowdown and it affects gameplay, but I did not experience any real slowdown.

It's just an easy way to rag on the Wii U.

Oh tell me about it. I remember a few days before the WiiU release, Giantbomb was streaming all the games and they would be like, "Oh man...this Epic Mickey 2 is horrible. The frame rate is like...56 frames a second and it is REALLY easy to tell."

Seriously? You can catch 4 frames a second?

Not much can be said about graphics anymore, so I guess the new thing to latch unto is framerate. :|
