Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition 90 Second Review

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition In a nutshell: 

Dynasty Warriors with Link and Zelda (plus more) where repetition is the name of the game

Ok maybe the comment above does Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition a little disservice. It’s certainly an enjoyable button masher and there are hours  of content here with all the previously released DLC packs included. But after ten hours of repetitive smashing of the same buttons its hard to get excited when the next wave of samey enemies suddenly appear from the nearest fort.

The Zelda theming is quite a novelty and the graphics are pretty sweet, even in handheld mode. It is certainly impressive when a swarm of low-level mooks amass around your character.

It is also fair to say that some of the enemies require more of a cerebral approach than the usual spamming of the same button over and over and the specials add a cool element to attacks, especially against the larger than life boss characters.

But in the end the amount of enjoyment you get from Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will depend on how much you enjoy sore fingers and repeating the same tasks over and over.

Good Bad
  • Sweet Graphics
  • Challenge Mode is fun
  • Addictive (if shallow)  gameplay
  • Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Score: 7 (out of 10)
