Review: Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is an uneven Zelda love letter

Relive Breath of the Wild’s history with big battles, big heart and, sadly, some big technical woes

A hugely entertaining love letter to Breath of the Wild let down by uneven performance that scuppers the game’s ludicrous highs.

  • The rich, varied roster is a joy to discover.
  • More coherent campaign than Hyrule Warriors.
  • Depressingly uneven frame rate throughout.
  • Divine Beasts are plodding compared to the rest.
3 / 5
Version tested
Nintendo Switch
