My Rating: 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡➕
This game here! Full disclosure: I’ve never played a Hyrule Warriors game before. I’ve heard of them, of course, and even peeped a few clips, but they’ve never really interested me. I’m more of a roleplaying game player (Final Fantasy is my favorite series), and the Hyrule Warrior games just seemed like… well… repetitive hack and slash. Which, to be fair, at its core, it is. And those kinds of games are just not my thing, you know?
That’s what I thought, at least.
I was gifted Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and decided to take a break from Resident Evil: Revelations 2 to give it a try, and was immediately hooked. There’s just something about whooping mass amounts of monsters in strange and creative ways that feels weirdly satisfying. So much so that I decided to stop right there and buy the first because I wanted to beat them in order. So I started in on Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, became addicted, and beat the living snot out of it.
Multiple times, apparently, which kind of threw me off. See, the game has three different endings, which I did not expect, but was pleasantly surprised by. You get this big boss fight followed by a gorgeous, cinematic ending, and just when you start feeling all smug and accomplished… you realize it isn’t really over. You still have more to do. Repeat two more times. Finally, you’ll get the true (or maybe just final?) ending, which to me is a bit odd but still amazing and satisfying.
I never knew a game like this could be this fun, especially for someone like me.
Give it a try. You might find yourself falling in love with it as I did! 🥰
You can find it on Amazon, and if you want to learn more about the series, you can go to its official site and check it out there. May the Triforce be with you. 🙌
