    After spending about 100 hours in Hyrule this time I can say this game is average. The levels are bland , non colorful places filled with nonimaginative creatures.The only thing that kept me playing was friend saying this is the best game ever, not seeing it. I would rate this game 6 out of 10 sheep, rather play Ocarina any day.

    This is above average for an open world game, but it gets very boring once you beat it.

    So the story in this game is bland, and I felt that the game lacked some of the classic requirements to be labeled a zelda game. I felt the dungeons weren't as good, nor was the story. Also I miss obtaining things like grappling, I felt there was a lack of story, and that the game was more focused on an open world feel, the dungeons were bland and boring. Combat on n64 was way better.

    Sadly I played it for a few hours and it was super boring for me. I don't like it to be honest.

    Fun for awhile but wish they would allow multiplayer locally. Watching one person play while 3 others sit around gets dull.

    Kind of boring to be honest. There are dozens of better open world games ( Horizon: Zero dawn being the obvious comparison) so don't let Them slide the Nintendo colored glasses over your eyes. Also Skyward sword was better.

    Look with a series as old as Zelda it would be very easy for it to feel stale and boring - that is no where near the case with Breathe of the Wild. As with previous installations, the graphics are breathtaking and the introduction of the slate has brought a fresh element to the game. Gameplay is straight forward but the player has so much control over how to handle each situation that it feels great.

    It was somewhat boring start that it felt like chore to play. Then as beast quests starts things get interesting. However after you are done with those, the game becomes Farcry: the legend of zelda

    I've never completed a Zelda game before I bought Breath of the Wild. This game has been such a refresher in a long line of dull games I've played. It really is a complete package of a game that leaves a since of accomplishment when you complete a task

    I found this game pretty boring. The graphics are ok, at best. I personally don't find anything extraordinary about this game.

    This is probably the best game I've ever played. I might have to come back to this review after playing another 100 hours and remove the word "probably". This game is huge, and it manages to feel like every inch of the map is full of life rather than being an empty, boring open-world. I seriously don't have anything negative to say about this game, if you have a Switch (or even a Wii U), you should buy this game.

    Empty!! Empty!! Empty!!

    My.God this game is empty. And boring. And so overrated. With only a handful of the same enemies. That pop up rarely. You can run and run and run and only come across animals and plants - mostly mushrooms. My inventory is full of ingredients I have hunted and gathered in an attempt to make the game more interesting. But then you have to cool with it and that is just as tedious and dull. The novelty of cooking was cute the first few times but it gets really boring really fast. I miss the old system of two or three different color potions. And your weapons are so pathetically fragile. Just a few huts and it shatters like glass. It's terrible and so tedious. And those clubs are everywhere. If it weren't a highly anticipated Zelda game and the only thing really worth playing on the Switch I have no doubt it would have been rated far lower. That plus the risk of being cursed out by Nintendo's crazy fans [something that has already happened to me]

    Weapon system sucks

    This is a pretty decent game. It can be fun at times and has a HUGE map to explore. However the weapon system is TERRIBLE, and the missions are a bit dull. All they want you to do is defeat the main bosses, everything else is on you to figure out and is optional. Needs more of a mission structure.

    This game is probably one of my favorite Zelda games of all time. There is so much to see and do. You can do pretty much anything in any order in the game. The only thing is the 4 main dungeons in the game are kind of bland. However those are only a tiny portion of what the game has to offer.

    This game is truly amazing. I had doubts at first when I first got it. It seemed boring and relatively empty. That was before I finally finished the beginning sequence and started the real story. Honestly, this game is one of the greatest I have ever played.
