This game is a great entry in the dynasty warriors crossover series with hyrule.

Way better in difficulty/mechanics than Hyrule Warriors 1.

However, much shittier in terms of amount of content AND performance. Holy hell.


Its such an obvious problem too - the item drop notification absolutely murders framerate. If they tweaked the overlay, or let you turn it off, the problem would go away... Instead... they don't care. So


Good game, marred by bad performance on a platform that isn't really up to snuff (the switch).


Now, Hyrule Warriors 1 (Definitive edition) has none of these performance issues... because it was developed for the Wii U, ported to the 3DS, and finally ported to its final form on the Switch.

If i had to pick between recommending one Hyrule Warriors Game, it would always be HWBig GrinE. AOC is great in its own right, but DE is a more polished experience.
As a huge Zelda fan I was disappointed by this. Lots of boring arcade style fighting. I'd rather just watch a streamer play it. And the story really doesn't tie to BOTW like people thought it would. It's just another timeline.

This is tempting.. I want to get Breath of the Wild first. I need that digital, and it's not even for sale on Amazon anymore!

I've got the first game digitally, so I am good on passing on this one for now. I still need to get BotW when it goes on sale digitally again. I'm ready for it!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who loved the first Hyrule Warriors game, but was not impressed with Age of Calamity. The storyline just didn't resonate for me at all. I had an overpowered team by the end with a select few characters including terminator Zelda that could destroy anything without much difficulty. I have zero desire to go back and re-play it, whereas the original Hyrule Warriors has great nostalgia and re-play value for me.

Repped for using the term "terminator Zelda" lol!

The two games aren't comparable. They just look like each other.

I feel like the fighting mechanics were much deeper than the first Hyrule Warriors. Though maybe I didn't put that much time in on the first one

The first Hyrule Warriors was pretty fun, Upon playing the first 30 minutes of AOC, I was fairly disappointed in the mechanics of the game plus the frame rate issue.

Loved this. Have 110 hours and counting put in. Certainly not for everyone but it's mindless and lots to grind
