Critic Reviews for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is a good-quality port of the Wii U game, but outside of much more stable performance and better local co-op it doesn't add enough new content to make replaying the story mode interesting again if you've already tried it. Luckily, the Adventure Mode maps and 16 of the 31 unlockable characters are available from the start.

Zelda may have inspired one of the best Dynasty Warriors games to date but the end result is still well below average by any other standard.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition on Switch brings all the DLC from other platforms together for what is, in essence, a remaster of one of the best Zelda spin-offs.

It's an older release and the price tag is a little steep, but Hyrule Warriors is pitch-perfect musou gameplay with a heaping handful of Zelda fanservice. The former is still the most important part though, so you need to be a fan of musou titles to really get the most out of this game. If you are a fan though, Hyrule Warriors is one of the better entries and it runs well on Switch.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition combines the best of both worlds to form a product than can please even the biggest musou opposer. It also has tons of content, but the lack of true new adds makes it difficult to recommend to those who played the Wii U or 3DS versions.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is perfect for those who have not played the original game. This a very original musou game and it is almost perfect in every sense, even though its graphics could have been improved a little bit for this version.

If you're a Zelda fan and want something more combat oriented with a strong element of strategy to it, then Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is worth checking out.

As long as everyone knows what they're getting into though I would definitely recommend this game to fans of the Dynasty Warriors franchise regardless of their familiarity with Zelda. I'd also give a thumbs up to fans of the Zelda games that are into arcade-style action every now and again.
