Been playing this since yesterday, and I'm liking it a lot so far. Which isn't really a surprise since I like musou games, especially Hyrule Warriors and this is a musou game especially like Hyrule Warriors. I'm actually surprised by just how much this is like Hyrule Warriors to be honest. No awful bosses at least.
Game doesn't really seem to be doing that much that's entirely new, but I think the game is a bit more chaotic than Samurai Warriors 4 so the map stuff is way more useful and fun. Weapon triangle is whatever, enjoyed it more in DW8 but that wouldn't really work here.
Doubling up is whatever.
Hate the story though. I mean, I guess it's fine or whatever, but it's exactly the same as Dragon Quest Heroes 2, which was exactly the same as Dragon Quest Heroes, which was very similar to Hyrule Warriors.
Also this game is a bit unique for me as it's probably the only collab musou I've played where I have no real attachment to the original franchise. Though, to be fair, the only other series that falls under that is Arslan but whatever lol
