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 is just that, the very best edition of the title that has been released.

It might have taken a couple tries to get the formula right, but Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is exemplary. Much can be said about the absurd amount of content, but what really takes this game to the next level are the various refinements. The item card shop alone makes a world of difference for dedicated adventurers. There's also the enhanced frame-rate, which lends a better sense of control and situational awareness to the player. They are better equipped to notice those subtle changes in enemy behaviour, or realise when a massive attack is coming. Aside from a few nit-picks, there's hardly a reason to pass on this fantastic title.

For people who didn't play through the DLC on the Wii U version, or want a portable version of Hyrule Warriors that doesn't feel like a one massive compromise after another, Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is essential.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is a solid fighting game. It expertly meshes the gameplay of Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda with a decent story and a massive amount of content. It’s not perfect, but it’s a lot of fun and immensely satisfying to just plough through scores of enemies in a single hit.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is a really fun experience on the Nintendo Switch and really is the definitive version. It contains all the updates and plenty of unlockable characters, items and costumes to help enhance your overall Musou experience but in the world of Zelda.

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 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.

Popular locations, iconic songs and a truckload of things to see and do make this one title that is going to keep you going well until the next Zelda game comes out, and then some.
