Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I tried the Hyrule Warriors demo @ Gamestop and...

... I was impressed, but cautiously so.

 

Graphics : Good graphics and solid framerate overall. Bosses look fantastic. Main characters look great. Environments and enemies are okay.

Gameplay: Simple, but fun. And as I expected, the Zelda influence added some depth from what I expect from a Warriors game (last one I tried was Dynasty Warriors 8 ). Some puzzle solving in terms of using items to find new areas and defeat bosses -- but pretty simple to an experienced Zelda fan. Combo system seems to have some depth too, but maybe to early to call. The demo level was pretty easy to me.

Sound: Great soundtrack. SFX give you a great feeling like you're constantly kicking ass

Gamepad: great use of the gamepad as an event log, map, and inventory screen. Really well done. I want more games to use the Gamepad the way Hyrule Warriors does.

 

Demo didn't give any story or co op options. But based on the mission I had, I think the game does lend itself tremendously well to co op.

 

Overall, it's a game I walked away wanting to spend more time on. May not be the masterpiece Zelda people crave, but still really good.

I really look forward to trying the co op someday. IMO If you have a friend or loved one who either A) loves Zelda (or musou) games as much as you do or B) have somebody in your life whom you want to introduce Zelda to who'd otherwise be overwhelmed taking on a Zelda game on their own, then this game NEEDS to be on your radar.

It has some promise as a single player experience, but I really believe co op will be where it really shines

Nice to hear that. Almost all impressions I read so far are really positive.
I'm quite hyped for it actually!

This game got a boost on Amazon because of this. So obviously everyone is liking it.

I can tell you, but I'll mark it as a spoiler!

Around 10 hours for the Story mode, but there is also the adventure mode and the challenge mode which will be added on release!

Do you think you can endure the button mashing combat for 10 hours?

I preordered the game but, i just wanna know your thoughts like if you think it will get boring or not.

Hm... I'm new to the genre, but it does look interesting to say the least. Since it's Zelda, I'll probably have a look into this, just not right at launch.

I watched the GameXplain Hyrule Warriors stream and he had a lot of problems after the first few levels.

It's also about strategy and how you use your combos I guess. I don't think it will get boring, especially because of the Zelda characters!

The story seems to be quite good as well.
