This game has to be, by far, the best game I have ever played. I bought the Switch because I wanted to play this game though was somewhat sceptical if the cost would be worth it. I haven't had as much fun in a video game as I have with this one before. I'm aware that a lot of people who are classic LoZ fans aren't happy with this game given they claim it's "not a LoZ game" though for the most part I have to disagree.
The base of the puzzle dungeon aspect is still there. Just because the puzzles are split out across over 100 instances doesn't mean that the feature is gone and for me it's the puzzle dungeons that make the LoZ franchise. The puzzles being split into so many smaller little "trails" as they are called is, to me, a really great idea. They all teach you a way to use your equipment which is useful for later trails or for the main story quest. In addition to this, you've got a massively expansive world with a great variation of terrain (each example of which brings its own hazards in enemies and how the environment affects you such as snowy mountains being dangerously cold) as well as a great combat system where you can either get by just attacking when you can or you can really learn how it works which is rewarding once you get it down. There's also the food system where you can hunt or forage for ingredients and then cook them to create various dishes which provide health as well as many different buffs depending on what you cook (for example you can cook a meat skewer with meat you hunt for which gives a good amount of health, then you can create a similar dish but with stamina-restoring properties if you add another ingredient which restores stamina when cooked to make a healing item that also restores stamina and so on). In addition to the cooking you can also brew potions witcher-style using monster drops and various herbs found in the world so you can get more effective or longer lasting buffs without the health boosts.
The open-world potential of this game really impressed me. Not only through how you can just ignore the main story quest and go off to do whatever you want while still having a load of fun, but there's so many small details that make this game so special. You can climb every tree, every mountain and just about everything else that is obviously not supposed to be climbed on (though the list of things you can't climb is very short). You can fell trees with an axe, cut the log into firewood, pile the wood up and then set fire to it using any source of fire you may have (flint, lit torch, lightning strike, the list goes on) and then use this fire either as a means to keep yourself warm in a cold wilderness/at night, to open-roast food to cook it quickly and to skip time by resting beside it. Every item of clothing does something different (basic clothes, armour, cold-resistance, heat-resistance and so on).
The story of the game may not be for everyone due to the style it was written (minor spoiler--- it's written in the retrospective, learn about the past as you play kind of way---end spoiler) though I really like it, you're not forced into playing through the main story quests and all there's so much additional lore to search out. You don't get a "hand-holding" experience with the story, quest markers on your map aren't necessarily pointing to the solution and you usually have to do some asking around or pathfinding in the area that you're pointed to in order to work out what you need to do.
Overall- this game is worth buying a Switch for alone, anyone who enjoys puzzles, exploration, combat, little features which let you play the way you want to play- this is the game for you!
Since then, I played about 5 games: Halo 2, WoW, Halo 3, SC2, and LoL. I thought single player gaming was a thing of the past for me.
Breath of the Wild is something wonderful. I very nearly sent the Switch back as I was not accustomed to loading times (which are really not that long, and only when travelling between shrines) nor was I convinced this game was worth the price of the console alone.
About 2 hours later and I was in love with the best game I've played, certainly in a generation, probably ever.
Worth the price of the console alone. Buy it.
After a week of solid play I can honestly agree it is a wonderful game. The balance of story, of exploration, of puzzling, of combat in a huge and beautiful world is hugely engrossing.
The game starts with a fantastic self contained area that introduces the mechanics of the game whilst drawing you before you finally see the real scale of the world and story revealed. It's a brilliant game and it looks fantastic. Easily recommended.
This game, at a glace, may seem like: "Oh they've made a Zelda game open world like GTA or Skyrim..." But the thing is, they've actually made a Zelda game that does everything better. The more hardcore Zelda fans might boast about how they finished it with 3 Hearts while only wearing their blue shorts in 39mins... but this game has more to offer than that... and DESERVES more from the player I think.
I advise any new players, like I was, to just ignore the internet and jump into the game and learn how to cook from trial and error, learn how to fight each foe, seek out those secrets. I've been playing this for days and I don't even feel like I am "avoiding the main quest" or "Looking for stuff to do". Every journey I make ends up an exploration, the world in this game is very well done.
weapons break too fast, i have no idea why they added that mechanic in this game.
game seems too short for someone who doesn't do side quests or just explore the game.

They have this annoying habit of shattering like mechanical pencil refills.
I really don't believe Zelda was ready for this-and neither was I.Read more
