    Good game, but a bit off track.

    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.

    This is the best Zelda game ever made. No hand holding long tutorials. The combat can be very difficult if you aren't prepared for battle. I love everything about this game. It doesn't get 5 stars is due to the fact it's disappointing to release a new console with limited games and not considering kids in mind. How many times do I need to buy the Skylanders set?

    Big Zelda fan base since the beginning. This game had me hesitant to buy it. It's playable, it's a good game once you get use to it. Wasn't the best fan of style of graphics. I have yet to play it on the tv and hope that it'll help my playing experience when I do. Ocarina of time is still my number one.

    Great game bogged down by mechanics

    So the game looks great. and mostly plays great. However I rate this as only average because of the Dumb item durability mechanic and the cooking mechanics. I hate item durability in games. Some people might not be bothered by it, but I am! So if you don't care about that. then it is awesome.

    Having not spent too much time with Zelda games in my childhood and more recently diving into Witcher series and Elder Scrolls this game doesn't do anything for me and found my self quickly bored and looking for more narrative. Reading text when interacting with NPCs is not what I want in a game so I quickly sold my copy on ebay.

    It's like having another job. I don't even want to play it anymore, it's too much work. Totally not fun. The level of detail of the graphics is fantastic though. I could see enjoying the game if that's something you're into. I bought the game because I used to play it on gameboy but the name is the only thing that's the same.

    This is a great open world game but at time you can tell that the couldn't put much horse power behind having a more "alive" world. There are vast stretches where you're just moving along killing random spawned enemies as filler. Even if you aren't into the genre, if you own a switch you need to at least try this game.

    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.

    I'd liked the Zelda franchise years ago and thought this may be worth it. TBH it's just another money grab as this and a better controller cost about half of what the console cost me. It's infuriating that N can continue just by playing the nostalgia card. I'm sticking with Sony like my gut instinct told me to begin with.

    It's a solid open-world game, but ...

    I find it to be a mostly uninteresting Zelda. The game feels like a series of diversions, and they can be fun, but I play for an hour and feel like I've done absolutely nothing. It delivers on the meandering exploration, but not on the progression and interesting larger puzzle structure the series is known for.

    Great open environment. However lacks the usual experience I’ve come to know from playing all of the series games. Needed more dungeons less shrines. Seemed to repetitive with very short puzzle and same enemie in the shrines. Guess I’ll wait to se what the expansion pack does

    I was hoping to be amazed with Breath of the Wild. The problem is it's a generic game. It feels like it's trying to copy other open-world games while being really shallow. Not to mention the DLC hard mode that should've been included in the base game. Solid game but a 6/10 is more than fair.

    I hate to give it 1 star and I hate to give it 5 stars. Sadly, the game wasn't for me. It is too open world. I need a game that draws me in. This did not do it for me. I know it is probably a great game, but the drastic change (ex. broken weapons) is too much.

    I bought a switch game system for my grandson for his 10th birthday coming up. A game didn't come with the system which is very unusual & they shouldn't of released the game system without more games available! Not happy with that! The sales lady was very nice & helpful.

    I purchased this game at the same time as my Switch. I hadn't played a Zelda game in years and was looking forward to this. I didn't have much fun with the game. It has its moments, but I didn't like the open world approach.

    I rated it a bit low mostly because I have never played any Zelda game before and I am kind of going through some kind of learning curve. It does look like it could be a lot of fun once I get it down. I would still recommend it to any Zelda fans.

    This open world game has some cool graphics and animation. The visuals are well done and moving throughout the world is great. However, the game has a high number of witchcraft objects.

    Overall the kids enjoy Zelda. Great to see another generation playing. The adults ended up wondering aimlessly around a bit in the forest, but we are glad we bought it for the holidays.

    I was super excited to get the switch, and hoped that Zelda would be as fun as I remembered as a kid. Unfortunately, this game fell short of my expectations. Some may like it, it just wasn't for me. I'm holding out for Mario.

    The gameplay is wide open and there are a lot of side missions. The controls take some getting use to and the graphics do not live up to that of a PS4 or X Box game. I can't believe Nintendo still produces cartridges.
