Review Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda - A Beat-Based Wonder
Striking a chord
From the opening menu that uses not the rousing Zelda overworld music but the understated theme from Ocarina of Time's title screen, you know you’re about to go on a special journey. Cadence of Hyrule (we won’t bother with its ludicrously long official moniker) takes the music we all know and love and remixes it with the...

About The Game
In the latest rhythmic action-adventure from Brace Yourself Games, you can enjoy the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer in the setting of The Legend of Zelda series. As Link – or even as Princess Zelda – you’ll explore the randomly generated overworld and dungeons on a quest to save Hyrule. Every beat of each remixed The Legend of Zelda tune is a chance to move, attack, defend, and more, so stay one step ahead of each enemy and boss…or face the music.
From modern-looking Lynels to the Hyrulean Soldiers of old, you must master the instinctive movements of each pixel-art enemy, and strategically outstep them in rhythmic combat. Equip yourself with an arsenal of iconic The Legend of Zelda items, as well as the spells and weapons from Crypt of the NecroDancer. You must be prepared to face Hyrule’s most wicked bosses, which have been transformed by magic, granting them mighty, new forms.

We want this game, yes we do!
I really am undecided on this. If it's a beat based game I may pass.
Do I get the original CotN or wait for this one?
@biglittlejake Same. Wytboy got no rhythm.
@tseliot I never liked music-based games.
This is a rhythm beat RPG game supposedly 70 hours long.
@StooBush I decided to wait based on my Hyrule Warriors experience. I bought Hyrule Warriors and LOVED IT, then I bought another Warriors game and it was fine, but I didn't enjoy it enough to play it a lot.
In other words, just in case it's like that, I'd hate for it to happen in reverse what if I would love Cadence, but I play Crypt first and say meh and then never play Cadence. TODAY I buy my first game of this type in Cadence of Hyrule...Hopefully I love it.
With Crypt going down to $4, I bought that to see if it's something would like as a Zelda title. Not really sold on it yet, but I've heard it's got a learning curve.
Ive got Crypt a few days ago, Its was just meh for me... Still play it a few minutes a day.
Should I try this one? I love Zelda games, maybe it will click with me more than Crypt....?
