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.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is a Smash where Zelda is all of the Bros. It is bursting with the ghost of Nintendo's sweetest past.

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 is pushing it, given that there's already been a portable "definitive" release with previous DLC and then some, but if you skipped out on the 3DS release entirely (because it ran poorly on non-"New" models) or haven't played Hyrule in any form yet, it's going to be a much more enticing prospect.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition takes a great game and makes it greater, though it's fair to say that for anyone outside of Legend of Zelda or Warriors series fans it will undoubtedly feel less special.

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.

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.

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.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition lives up to its name: it's the best version of this game, and this game is also the best in the Warriors series.

The best version of a great game but still the lack of new content it's its biggest flaw.

I went into Hyrule Warriors with zero expectations and came out satisfied — this is a cool game with treats for Zelda fans, strategy fans, and hack-and-slash fans alike.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is the best version of the Legend of Zelda hack-and-slash experience. While it does suffer from some problems the original versions had, the plentiful amount of content mixed with entertaining gameplay and colorful cast of characters make this a legend the hero of time would love.

One of the best musou games with unique characters, beautiful combo attacks and bright magical effects now available on Nintendo Switch. Port could've been better if developers made more efforts to optimize it specifically for the new console just like Fire Emblem Warriors.

If you missed out on this game on Wii U I cannot recommend it enough. However, if you are like me and already sank double-digit hours into the original, you will find it hard to justify ... this game.

I didn't expect to enjoy going back to Hyrule Warriors as much as I did. The included DLC content, local multiplayer and better performance make this one of my personal all-time favorite Warriors games. There are still some frustrating aspects, and I'm not sure I'm willing to invest the required time to grind out 100%, but Warriors fans and those who haven't played Hyrule Warriors yet will find their money's worth in Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition.
