18 – Hyrule Warriors (8 points)

Whether you love or hate the musou genre, you cannot deny the surprise factor in Nintendo working with Tecmo Koei to release one in the vein of Hyrule Warriors. All of your favorite Hylian heroes (alongside some ne ones) come together in this hack-and-slash adventure, where pressing the advantage is both crucial and exciting.

In her Japanese version review of the game, Georgina wrote: “While it may not please gamers who are neither Zelda nor Dynasty Warriors fans, its animations, soundtrack and story alone might make it worth playing for a weekend, but might not make it worth purchasing the moment it comes out.”
