      To be blunt, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is arguably the best Zelda game ever made and it's definitely the most ambitious. Nintendo has outdone themselves, you have to hand it to them. There is very little negative to say about this game. Let's do a break down of the pros and cons. Pros: +Best Zelda story to date. Yes, it may be the same premise, but there is much more depth this time around. There are other things going on, not just Link rescuing Zelda. All of the side quests add so much to the main story. The depth is what makes the game succeed. +Voice acting adds a lot to some of the characters we already know and love, including Zelda herself. It makes for a richer and more interesting story. +Gameplay is king in Zelda games. We all know this. BOTW is no different. There is a ton of gameplay variety, more than there has ever been. Everything from fighting, exploring, cooking, transportation, it's all been either improved or newly introduced. +Open World and Exploration are front and center in BOTW. The open world design allows you take whatever path you choose. While most Zelda games in the past were linear, this is not the same. Whatever approach you prefer is completely fine. The freedom really shines through in BOTW. +The beautiful art style makes up for anything lacking in the graphics department. The Wii U and Switch are not on par with the PS4 and Xbox One, so don't expect that type of beauty, but the art style truly does make a big difference. Nintendo has always been king when it comes to gorgeous art and design. Exploration is one of the game's biggest draws. Conquering the 100+ shrines is amazing! +Wii U and Switch versions offer choice for the gamer. You don't have to upgrade to the Switch to experience BOTW. The Wii U version is every bit as great as the Switch one. In fact, I owned the Switch version but got rid of it in favor of the Wii U version. I did not see the point in upgrading since the only other Switch game I care about is Mario Odyssey and that doesn't come out for almost another year. +More than 100 hours of gameplay offers major value (in your wallet) and replay value. There is always something to see and do! +The game world is absolutely huge. This lends itself to many hours of fun, whether you are doing side quests, the main quests, shrines, or goofing off. +Challenging and thought provoking puzzles are a standout in BOTW. Every shrine has a challenging puzzle, while most boss battles require you to solve a puzzle as well. +Cooking is really fun. Doing recipes is a blast, just experimenting with food can be an interesting distraction. +Great A.I., from the main characters, townsfolk and enemies. +Use the Wii U Pro controller for the best experience. It is more tight and comfortable than the GamePad. I don't have experience with the Switch Pro Controller (probably because it's $70!) but I am sure it's superior to the Joy-Cons and Grip. Cons: -Weapons break a lot, maybe too much. I found that a lot of my time was devoted to changing weapons, whether in a battle or not. It's not a game-breaker but it is an annoyance. Overall, Zelda BOTW is an all time great. It's a game you must experience and have in your collection. I bought the Wii U version, but the choice is yours. Go out and buy it to experience something you will never forget!

      The hype is warranted...

      So I'm a fan of The Witcher 3 on PS4. I recently purchased the Switch for my kids but they don't like to play on it because they are infatuated with their iPad and Minecraft. So I was reading all the reviews about this game and how much hype surrounding it. I've also seen the youtube videos and still could not decide until today I made the purchase and let me begin by saying this isn't a full game review BUT I will say the money spent on this game was worth it! (I have Bestbuy's gamer's club discount at $47.99) - NO GAME IS WORTH MORE THAN $50. Sorry but it's insane to see how games are priced at $60+ these days.) The initial review of this game is that after having played over 100 hours of The witcher 3 excluding the expansion packs so far, I am quite overwhelmed with the witcher 3. The battle system and inventory system is just staggering and has a steep learning curve. So you must invest a lot of time. But with this BOTW game, the learning curve is not even close to being like the Witcher 3. The entire summary so far in my progress of this game is that it's fun to play and keeps me coming back. BOTW lacks the amount of details compared to The Witcher 3 but I am having a great time playing with my kids watching by my side. In fact it's more fun to play than the witcher 3 because it's much simpler and the inventory system is vastly smaller than the witcher 3's. Let's talk about the graphics - I have zero issues with the graphics and in fact it's actually a very artistic and beautiful game! Don't try to compare the two because it's completely different and BOTW in it's own style is great but the witcher 3 has it's own style and is superior as well. Overall with my current progress (which is still early in the game ~4 hours in), I am impressed enough with this game to tell people who are The Witcher 3 fan's to try the game out you won't be disappointed. BOTW is just fun to play and I enjoy exploring everything in this game. It seems The Witcher 3 is open world as well but somehow it feels linear and repetitive (go here come back do this and go back to the beginning, repeat it, etc). BOTW is just easy to play and I haven't touched a Zelda game since SNES days. That's a LONG TIME AGO. I am happy with this game and I can only imagine if Nintendo made a true Zelda game from scratch using Switch hardware instead of porting from the Wii U - this already is impressive considering it wasn't designed on the Switch in the first place. So if you are wondering if this game can hold up to The Witcher 3 - I'd say it can and I find myself playing this more; because it's family friendly, it doesn't take complete focus as you need in the Witcher 3, and you don't need to spend so much time like you do in The Witcher 3. I usually get in the Witcher 3 game and less than 1/2 hour I am already drained because there's just so much to explore and do sometimes I just get tired and quit. With BOTW I can just load it up and play and it's something special with the way Nintendo produced this game because it keeps you attracted and coming back. I don't have any issues with weapons breaking because you just go off and find more weapons. I love the bow and arrow and the entire game is just "fun". The load times are not atrocious - it's not lightning quick like in the new Sonic game but I don't have any issue with load times. In fact coming from The Witcher 3 on the PS4, anything less than that game is heaven, lol! Overall I am happy I bought the game and I can say without a doubt you will enjoy the game. The hype is warranted and I can see myself playing until the end! Nintendo can keep making games like BOTW and for sure I will say the Switch will live on a long time. It's not always about graphics power on a console; it's all about the software!

      Zelda: Breath of the Boring

      Posted
      KiddAlpha
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      There are possible spoilers below. If you literally want to know nothing about this game then look away. This is the most over-hyped and overrated game in the last 10 years. It's that simple. Just some history. I have played and completed every single Zelda game ever released. Yes, even Skyward Sword which this game makes look like a 10/10. This is NOT your typical Zelda game. It's an open world mess. Here are some of the major negatives: (1)A MASSIVE open world. Seriously. Gigantic. It's also EMPTY. Lifeless. Boring. Dull. They could have literally cut the map in half and it would have still been massive and empty and bland. (2)No dungeons. There are four, yes FOUR, Divine Beasts that pose as really bad "dungeons" in this game. That's it. And they are nowhere near the fun that Zelda dungeons typically are with well crafted puzzles and challenging layouts. (3)Heart containers and Stamina can be raised by grinding out 120 Shrines. Each Shrine gives an Orb. Every 4 orbs you can raise your heart level or stamina level. There is a point in the game you can swap stamina for hearts or vice versa and trust me you WILL want to do this. More on this later. I mentioned Stamina. Get used to it. This game is literally designed around it. Your stamina determines how high you can climb, swim or run without rest. It also determines how effective special weapon moves are, etc. You literally can't run 5 feet without running out of stamina and in a world this large that is a really huge problem. Wanna take a swim? Well don't go far because your stamina will run out and you will drown in a shallow pond. The shrines themselves are the definition of repetitive. A simple puzzle or enemy and done. But it takes much longer than you think. You will be SICK of these after 30 of them. (4)Rain. It rains constantly. No big deal right? Wrong. The brilliant designers at Nintendo made it where when it's raining you might as well put your controller down and go get a drink. You can't climb when it's raining. That means you can't explore. That means you are left looking at this massive world waiting on it to stop raining. Also, if you happen to have a metal weapon equipped, lightning can hit you and kill you. (5)Weapon Durability. Now to what I consider the worst mechanic in the game and it's not even close. Your weapons break. They will break. Often. Like every 2 enemies often. Like every 10 hits often. Every single weapon breaks. You can only carry a certain amount of these weapons of course, but you can increase the slots to carry more. That requires Korok Seeds which I will address below. So you will literally be spending a HUGE amount of time in EVERY SINGLE ENCOUNTER that isn't a very weak enemy equipping weapon after weapon as they break. This isn't just an early game thing. This is an entire game thing. Now, you CAN get unbreakable weapons like the Master Sword but that will require a certain amount of hearts to get (reference how to get heart containers above). But again the designers at Nintendo messed this up too. Even the Master sword must be recharged for 10 minutes after using it for a few fights. So it may not break but it will be useless to you most of the time. It is astounding to me that they put this mechanic in. It ruins the game. (6)Menus. The menu design is HORRID. Illogical in layout and you will be in the menu's a TON. (7)Korok Seeds. Spread throughout the world are 900 korok seeds. It takes exponentially increasing amounts of these to increase slots for weapons, etc. There is really nothing to do but mark your map and go find these. It's incredibly boring and repetitive. Just like the shrines. (8)Controls. The controls overall aren't very good. They aren't consistent and nothing feels solid. The controls for your horse are the worst though with the promise of it getting better the longer you keep a horse. It doesn't. (9)Enemies. There are about 10 enemy types in the game with a few elite variants. Yep, about 10. That's why after the 10th village of monsters you kill for yet another chest containing some weapon that will break in 10 hits you will start skipping any fights at all. There is literally no reason to engage. You don't level. They don't drop any items you really need. It's just atrocious design. (10)Story. There isn't one. Link wakes up with the ever useful "amnesia" trick which of course means they don't have to craft a story and trust me, they didn't. You will find memory triggers throughout the land with no idea where they are that will unlock memories which are just lazy short cutscenes from the past. (11)Music. There really isn't any music to speak of. In past Zelda games it was memorable and the game almost threw it at you. Not here. In fact, I was literally falling asleep playing this game because for large parts of it you are running around playing in silence with the crickets chirping in the game. (12)Cooking. Another really awkward convoluted mechanic with a weird menu thing that makes you hold so many items together and then throw them in the pot that you must target, which they miss half the time anyways. (13)Exploration. There is NO PAYOFF for exploring. You get nothing cool. You find nothing unique. You will climb mountain after mountain. You might find a chest here or there but guess what it contains? You guessed it! Another bad weapon that will break a few fights later. So sad. (14)Towers. There are tons of towers spread throughout the map that when climbed (which takes forever) will reveal portions of the map. They did this to encourage exploration, the problem being there is really nothing to find. I will guess that just like me you will also tire of this very quickly. Yes, another bland boring mechanic. So that is the game. Really. That's it. You can beat the game very quickly if you are a good player. You just have to advance the story enough to get the quest for the 4 dungeons which is VERY early in the game and then you can fight the boss. Everything else is completely optional and completely average. So you tell me after reading this how in the world this game got so many 5 star reviews or 10 star reviews on other sites. It's absolutely absurd. This is a bad game. Don't buy it. Do not reward Nintendo for this. The sad fact is there are more Nintendo fanboys than we all think and they will just eat up anything Nintendo throws at them. Even games like this. I own all the consoles and a beast of a gaming PC. I don't have an allegiance to a console or company. I just play good games and this game is just not good at all.

      An average but good game

      If you have a switch, you should get this game. Not because it's great, but because it's average and still offers hundreds of hours of play time. The negative reviews are all correct, and so are the positive reivews. The actual reality is somewhere in the middle. It has a big beautiful world, but many areas are just empty other than trees and grass. Most of the game seems to focus more on basic survival like gathering supplies and cooking, rather than working towards a goal. It may as well have been called Legend of Zelda: woodland survival. Link is hopelessly outmatched and really needs to work hard to live in this world. The best way to try and make the game more playable would be to collect 13 heart containers and go straight for the master sword so you won't have to worry about weapon breakage every minute (although the sword still needs to recharge between uses). Then start working on adding stamina so you can swim and climb mountains. The old style of Zelda involved many dungeons that would grant you powerful new weapons, but in this game there isn't much in the way of that. Since Link is so weak most of the time, this game really requires you to use creative thinking and interaction with the environment to beat enemies and puzzles, rather than charging in with an old bow or sword that will break after a few swings. It is the total opposite of past games and something you need to get used to. It is still a good overall game that can be enjoyed if you look past its many flaws and work with the game dynamics that are given. If you try and play it as a traditional Zelda game, you will be disappointed. Just wander around and have fun finding mysteries and enjoying the scenery. It has some amazing unique graphics and scenes you will enjoy. This is a whole new game style and takes some getting used to, but satisfying if you want it to be. This is the first game where I feel like a strategy guide is mandatory, otherwise you could waste huge amounts of time searching for areas and items on your own. Perhaps the biggest achievement (and downfall) of the game is that they made it far too realistic. Most of what happens is what you would expect in real life. Rain puts out fires and makes rock slippery, lighting strikes are dangerous, fire can burn things, and weapons can break. Add to this the stamina wheel where Link gets tired after a short run, and it leaves you wondering if they added too much realism in what is supposed to still be a video game.

      The ultimate game for wandering and discovering.

      Posted

      This game is designed to be enjoyed in many different ways. If you are the diligent type of person who wants to follow the recommendations of the game and go EXACTLY where you are told to go next, and what to do, then this is a solid game. But that is not what this game is meant for. It is meant for wandering and discovery. And if you put yourself in the right mindset to get curious, and observe the landscape and see what could potentially be around that hill, or down that river, or inside that valley, or up on top of that mountain, this game will reward you with surprises. Let me point out the very thing that this game does that separates it from all other open-world games: This is a vertically designed game. By design you are encouraged to climb up to high places to observe the land and see what is below, and then you can drop in below. You are encouraged to act as your own topographer and mark up your own map with "stamps" to chart what it is that you see and place a waypoint there. Its pure discovery. There are no "?" already pre-placed on the map. Its all up to you. In most games, this would be a bad sign, because there's usually not much there. Like some collectable item that only serves to complete a side quest for the sake of completion. That is not what happens in this game, you are rewarded with unique gameplay moments. You discover new missions and characters. You find interesting side stories entirely by accident. This game rewards you for your curiosity at such a consistent level. This is the game where you are recommended to NOT just follow the main quest. This game has so many other game mechanics at work, that it would take a while to explain them all. The best way to explain is that the game strives to achieve a realism without all the boring parts about realism. Its very interactive, but not in a way in which its pointless. There's a GAMEPLAY reason for all of this interactivity. One gameplay mechanic that would be utterly pointless and tedious on its own is justified by the implementation of other gameplay mechanics. It all ends up working together. There's a bit of Minecraft-type of resource gathering mechanics. And lastly, the game surprises you with its enemy and their behavior. Even the most common enemy will find some way to surprise you during a fight. Because of the fact that your weapons has a short shelf-life early on in the game, you are forced to try out different weapons, but more importantly, you are strongly encouraged to engage a group of enemies in unique ways so that you don't have to use up your weapons. Scope the landscape and see what you can use to your advantage. Experiment. And there are so many small details that simply accumulate to blow you away. You have a sound-meter, when you walk slowly you make some noise, if you crouch and walk you make almost no noise, but if you run you make alot of noise. Nothing complicated about that, right? But WHY is it in the game? Because you can crawl up to enemies sleeping stealthily. And THEN you come to realize that when its raining, the sound of the rain masks the sound of your footsteps. So the dynamic weather has a PURPOSE, the sound has a PURPOSE. Its not there for the sake of presentation. Its there because you can DO SOMETHING WITH IT. The moment you realize that and then ask yourself "what if.......I try doing this?" and then do it AND IT WORKS!! Its the greatest feeling I've had in many years. This game makes you realize how other games artificially limit you in ways that are just plain silly. Locked doors??? Really? A line of bushes that serves as a wall that you aren't allowed to get past? This Zelda is meant to blow your mind in 2017 the way the first Zelda blew your mind in 1986/87.

      Best game in the series, best game of all time?

      BUY IT! Let's just start right there.... don't think twice, don't hesitate, buy the game. It is absolutely the best game of the series ever.( yeah traditional list will still say Ocarina is...it's not, not anymore. But that's an argument for other forums ) Breath of the Wild is an absolute breath of fresh air. It keeps so many of the ZELDA traditions, reframing them in a new manner, all while adding so much to the series. i could go on and on in long paragraphs about the brilliance of this ame, but let me make the review easier to read for those of you on the fence. Pros 100%open world...seriously after the intro that serves as a tutorial you could head strait for the final boss if you wanted, but the difficulty makes him almost impossible to beat. Massive world. It's huge. Maybe the biggest open world we have ever seen. Go anyplace. See a mountain? Head for it and climb to the peak...follow the river, tromp through the woods, explore ruins, search for shrines. Seriously do whatever you want. The shrines ....think of them as 120 brain teasing mind bending puzzles that reward you at the end if your skilled enough to get through them. The Devine beast- think classic dungeon exploring in ZELDA. Graphics- the game has a beautiful animated style. Do what you want... climb a mountain glide down. Swim. see a horse,deer, or even bear, sneak up on it hop on its back and ride it. The variety of gear-so much gear...and you'll need it weapons break, shields break. Your outfits won't, but you'll need different armor to help protect from the cold, and heat. Hours of game play- if your like me you can play this game for well over 100hours if you explore for everything hidden in this game. Difficulty- game will challenge even long time gamers. You will die...a lot! Cons Cooking....the part I hate the most in this game is cooking. It's not so much that it's in the game..it's cool to take the stuff you find and cook it up to restore health and give you various stat boosts. No my hatred for it is in how they implemented it! The added steps of having to open inventory, select hold on items, then back out, then cook is annoying and time consuming. The inability to cook multiple dishes at a time is also annoying. This mechanics needed streamlined. Difficulty - you will die...A LOT! If your a novice gamer expect to die a lot. heck, if your a long time amer expect to die a lot. There are some extremely challenging enemies at times and the game may be too hard for younger players at times. Rain- I live that it can effect you while playing...makings climbing way harder, almost impossible at times..and lightning, don't get me started...you can get struck by it. My problem with it though is that it almost rains too much...and it always happens when I have something huge to climb! Ugghhh! That's it really. I can't think of anything else that is a negative. This game is easily the best I've played in 2017 so far. And while I have played some great games in the past this game immediately jumps to all time great stays..maybe the best game of all time. I can't suggest this game enough. And if my review isn't enough just do a quick internet search and see all the perfect scores it has received. It's a brilliant games in every aspect. BUY IT NOW!!!
