Horizon is going to win. It is the better game imo.
Really hyped for Horizon!

Better game!?

You know that ever 3D Zelda game is always one of the best games of that generation and that Zelda U looks like it will be one of the best Zelda game ever!?

Sales and Graphics, Horizon has the advantage due to bigger install base and better performing console. Critical reception, Horizon, being a new IP has a lot to prove. Zelda usually score in the high 80s to low 90s and has the nostalgia/established franchise factor going into to.

We need to see way more from Zelda U to make good judgement but right now, Horizon looks miles ahead of Zelda U in terms of everything.

We are talking here about 3D Zelda, and worst score for 3D Zelda is 93 for Skyward Sword.





Graphics: Horizon > Zelda U
Sales: Horizon ≈ Zelda U (only because of the huge user base difference)
Metacritic: Zelda U > Horizon
Art-style: Horizon



Metacritic: Basically no chance of happening. Is Horizon a 97 meta game? Or do you think Zelda U will "bomb" metacritic-wise? People should realize for once that the big console Zelda games, like Zelda U will be, score, on average, 95. 95. And that's only because Skyward Sword got a 93 otherwise it would have been an average of 96. (EDIT: No, actually with SS it already is 96, even 97 without) Then here I see "high 80s" to "low 90s" being thrown around. No, that would be disastrous if true.

Sales: Could happen, but I wouldn't bet on it. Zelda sells extremely consistently, install-base matters little. If it's cross-gen, then it's a done deal.

Graphics: Probably, if you're looking at the technical side only. Personally however I give a rat's *ss about how many polygons a random bush has, I'm looking at the art direction. Which is still up in the air until we see footage of the final builds of both games.

Hands down, Horizon will win both in metacritic and in sales. The Nintendo brand is on a sharp decline.

You realise that Nintendo on Wii U develop some of the best Nintendo games in whole franchises like Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Yoshi Woolly World...and people expecting from Zelda U too to be of the best Zelda games ever.

They have little to nothing in common. Brand wars thread.

Sales: Zelda U > Horizon
Reviews: Zelda U > Horizon
Graphics: Horizon > Zelda U (no fucking shit)
Art Style: Zelda U > Horizon (obviously subjective)

I agree, except for Metacritic, Zelda being an old licence, it will automaticly get +90 just by the name as long as it's decent. It's like Mario, it automaticly gets better than it deserves ( and even nintendo fans will agree with me that NSMB Wii U should get less than DK C WiiU )

While Horizon will likely be around 88-90 , new IP from dev who never made an open world

So you basically saying that Zelda and Mario games are overrated, that's not true at all.

3D Zelda game dont get high score just because its "Zelda", it gets constantly high scores because it's constantly very high quality game. Tri Heroes is spinoff of Zelda game, why it doesnt get +90 score, because it does not deserves. Same goes for 3D Mario games and Mario Kart games.

 





Zelda will win metacritic by nostalgia alone, lets not kid ourselfs, Horizon, new IP, will get compared to games like witcher3 etc.

Horizon is my most anticipated game after ff15 and 7 remake but these days press and reviewers i dont thrust them one bit, so i think Zelda will win metacritic, but IMO Horizon will be a better game in every department.
