Reviewed by Cam Shea on Nintendo Switch.

"Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity offers a welcome trip back to a world I've clocked hundreds of hours in, set in a time we've only heard discussed in hushed tones. Its hugely varied roster of characters, solid combat mechanics, fun progression and clever adaptation of Breath of the Wild's vision of Hyrule is a joy to play and discover. While there are some missed characterisation opportunities, Age of Calamity remains a blast from start to finish."

10/10 it really makes you feel like calamity
Am I the only one who didn't like BOTW? I loved OOT and MM etc
Did they intentionally mention Final Fantasy right after that bot thing made a Moogle sound?
This game is a calamity...

I just realized impa is that old lady from breath of the wild I want this game so bad because I already beat the whole breath of the wild and I want something else to do
Togedemaru's Iridescence
I give it a 5 out of 10. I thought its gameplay was repetitive and even unfair at times.
I_AmUncleJeb 175
That’s kind of the deal for a sequel game. Gameplay elements have been upgraded but it needs to fit old controls and gameplay for it to make sense for the franchise.

Yeah that's been a shtick for every previous warriors game. Weed whack through enemies, finish the objective, dont let home base get taken. Rinse repeat. Although I still want to give Age of Calamity a try for myself. Even if it feels more so like other warriors games,at least I know ill enjoy it way more than Fire Emblem Warriors.

Honestly the framerate has been fine besides one character you unlock in chapter 5 so far. It's so so fun and I can't wait to finish it tonight.

Playing as the great Ferry’s is horrible. Worst character annoying as hell. Also I’ve had the problem where the game overloads and my character freezes despite hitting buttons to attack. Wonder if they will fix this problem.

After seeing this, I am tempted to recommend people start with this game before giving Breath of the Wild a go.

Turning an anime or another video game into a musou game is one of laziest excuse for a spin off game. But this look promising.

9/10 is way too generous for a game that struggles to keep the FPS above 20 in docked mode. IGN strikes again.

I really liked the story arc but it feels just like a filler before botw2. Like, I was imagining all this with botw Mechanics and would have been a blast with all the character diversity.

About the timeline, it's described as a "splintered world" in game. Also, you can fight 5 guardians or multiple lynels at once.

Is Age of Calamity game of the year of 2020?

Its a botw spinoff (prequel) set 100 years before the events of Botw, and its set in the style of a dynasty warriors game
Round Earth Shill
neither....it's a prequel and it really doesn't play like BoTW, feels nothing like it

It’s the gameplay and quality of Dynasty Warriors 5, but Zelda themed. The game deserves a 6.5/10 at best.

I got this game on launch and am loving it. I can't put it down, the Demo alone I sunk 20+ hours and that was just two stages. this game is amazing and to me it's better then Breath of the wild. Just like the first Hyrule warriors I will keep playing this for a LONG time.

Is age of calamity connected to Breath of the wild 𝕐𝔼𝕊 or 🅝🅞? I want to know before I buy this game cuz all I wanted was a damn prequel.
Eggroll Edison
@Otimo it is a prequel to BotW but the gameplay is not the same, so yes, its a prequel
Otimo 9 napja
@Tsögö Bauggi thank you
Tsögö Bauggi
It is not a prequel to BotW.

It's a Dynasty Warrior type of game, man.
iamradical 10 napja
I’ve been a Zelda fan for 30 years and loved BotW but I’m not sure about this game. I like the classic Zelda gameplay, is there any exploration in this type of game?
Eggroll Edison
@iamradical there is some exploration (you can find koroks across the map, and the maps are quite huge) but if you dont like dynasty warriors games at all then no this game is not for you
meximous 9 napja
@iamradical yea it’s coming but who knows when. I’d imagine it’s soon since it’s more like majora’s mask in that it will use a lot of assets from the first game and they’ve been on it for a while. I might have to skip this too. I never tried the demo though I might try it today.
iamradical 9 napja
@meximous yeah if it’s just like dynasty warriors im afraid I’m gonna have to skip this one. Which is a huge bummer. I really wish they would have just done a proper sequel. Wasn’t there a trailer released or something showing that they were working on a sequel?
meximous 9 napja
Same I don’t really like dynasty warrior games. I’m thinking there isn’t any exploration. I think it’s all big, war like battles.

After all these years I think I finally nailed it. IGN doesn't review a game, they review the game they want it to be. They can't take the game for what it is they always have to critique something because they wanted it that way
Eggroll Edison
This wasnt really a critical review
Really makes you 「THINK」
I think it’s fair to criticize a game that was advertised as a way to give us an in-depth look at the Champions not really giving us anything we couldn’t already figure out from BotW. Mipha really wants to bone Link, Daruk is a big goofball who doesn’t realize that (most) Hylians can’t eat rocks, Urbosa is basically Zelda’s replacement mom, and Revali is the worst. Sure, it’s nice to get some more scenes with them, but it’s not exactly the in-depth look at them that was advertised. Don’t get me wrong, I love this game to bits and I’ve already put close to 30 hours into it (and plan on putting plenty more hours in), but there’s definitely aspects of it that are worth criticizing.
