Tried the demo for about 30 minutes today. Not really feeling it so far. Enemies feel like they are made of paper. For the most part I can just mash the attack button and wreck everything. Bigger enemies just require a couple well timed blocks or dodges and then wrecking them when they are open. Does the game get harder later on? I'll finish the demo tomorrow.
BotW's combat was great because of the challenge of the Lynels/Guardians, the crazy physics system, and breakable weapons forcing you to, think strategically to, conserve resources. Then if you add in the hard mode from the DLC it gets even more challenging.
Welcome in a Warriors game !
Even still, there at least more organized and have more aggressive behavior than they did in OG Hyrule Warriors,lol.
BTW, do you link weak and strong attacks together ? Cuz yeah, if you're gonna simply mash Y this would honestly become visually stale fast.
Here's what you can do with Link for example. (Every character have specifities in their moveset to make them unique)
