The Legend of Zelda series has always been one of Nintendo's most popular and beloved franchises and with the addition of Breath of The Wild, the series seems to still be going stronger than ever. The biggest change that this games makes is that the world and story is completely open-world, you can explore the vast regions and even complete the various temples in the order of your choosing. The graphics look great, very vibrant and eye catching, the environments look fantastic and alive and the enemies and characters feel more alive. The story is cool, the in-game cutscenes do a good job of giving the player the details of the world with more becoming clear as you progress. The gameplay is very fun, exploring the world, fighting enemies and solving puzzles, very reminiscent of other Zelda titles. collecting weapons from enemies and foraging for food can be fun, although, feel a little repetitive at times. If you're a fan of The Legend of Zelda franchise than this game will not disappoint you and even for those new to the series, don't worry, you'll still be able to have load of fun with this game.

Boring. Boring. Boring.

Nintendo used to be the company that everyone copied their gameplay styles from; now Nintendo is the one copying everyone else... Skyrim Creed anyone?

And why did Link suddenly get lost in Halo? What's up with the technology sci-fi stuff? Zelda games were far better off when Link didn't have an iPad strapped to his belt.

Collect-a-thon + millions of crappy weapons that all suck and break after only a couple of swings? Yawn. Durability on items is never fun. Just means wasting time in a menu instead of playing the game.

Finally arrived! Now to see what the hype is about.

I am still surprised that Wii U games do not feature full voice-overs for all the characters.

Game play is open world with many breakable, stackable and ignitable objects and terrain as with other Zelda titles.

The game play terrain seems to be an amalgamation of Skyrim or Rune's world exploration with the haunting desolation of Shadow of the Colossus and ICO at times. Though some elements can feel similar to Dark Souls series there violence is replaced by a puff of purple smoke, a pop and the dropped teeth and bone of bokogoblins.

The violence again animals is pretty cruel like tossing live lizards (etc.) into a cooking pot and seeing them dance around the heat until succumbing to it. Definitely, not a vegan game. Most larger animals turn into steak or a drumstick after being killed with a bow, sword or club.

Relaxing game so far. Watch out for heights and bogs they will kill you faster than any enemy.

Save for all ages. Controls take getting used to at first for those used to a PS3/4 or Xbox game pad.

It feels a little early to say Breath of the Wild is my favorite game ever, but man, is it a contender. The game’s not perfect. I can’t stress how much I miss classic Zelda dungeons and tools (no hookshot?!) and the weapon durability system can be tedious—do Hyrule’s blacksmiths only work in chalk?—but for me those complaints pale in comparison to the game’s living, breathing, astounding, explorable, and incredibly fun open world.

One of the best Zelda games ever, yet, doesn't feel like Zelda. The creators added little easter eggs to previous Zelda games which keeps the Zelda theme in the game, along with the overall storyline. On the whole, one of the best Zelda games ever.

There's no point borrowing this unless you have a WiiU Pro controller, which cost $80. Ridiculous on the part of Nintendo. You could just play on the Wii gamepad but I couldn't get any sound.

+ A very expansive, living world to lose yourself into. NPCs will surprise you with their behavior.
+ Fun, challenging gameplay. The first Zelda that requires a little bit of skill in order to progress.
+ As little tutorials as possible. The game allows people to experiment and doesn’t hold their hands throughout the entire game.
+ Good soundtrack. Many don’t seem to like the prominence of the piano on the new score but I like it. It can be subtle or bombastic when it needs to be.
+ Memorable characters. Without spoiling anything, the premise of the game is my favorite since Majora’s Mask and it has some of the best characters in the franchise.
+ Beautiful graphics. It is incredible what Nintendo managed to get out of the Wii U. You’ll be taking photos of the scenery very often.
- Framerate is all over the place. At times you would get parts of the game that will slow down all the way to 1-2 FPS. It has improved after patches though.
- English dub is bad. Some character voices did not match at all how you’d picture their voices to sound like.
Hands down, one of the most incredible games I’ve ever played. The cons are very little and are borderline nitpicks. I took my time and beat the game after 80 hours and I can see myself playing 80 hours more and still be discovering new things. Believe the hype, this is the new gold standard for open-world game design moving forward. Cannot recommend it enough.
