About

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an adventure game developed by Nintendo. It is the nineteenth installment in the series.

After awakening from a hundred year sleep, memoryless Link hears a mysterious female voice that guides him to a destroyed kingdom of Hyrule. He finds a Wiseman who says that a ruthless creature, Calamity Ganon, was imprisoned for 100 years. Even though the creature is trapped, it is still gaining power. Link sets out to kill Ganon before he frees himself and destroys the world.

In contrast to the previous titles in the series, Breath of the Wild the player to explore a vast open world. At the beginning of the game, a small tutorial is given to the players and they are free to travel the world at the pace they see fit. Link can climb almost every surface in the world, search for new equipment, cook food to restore health. Fast travel to certain places in the world is also available for the players. The world is highly interactive. For example, trees can be chopped down in order to make fire, or Link can use his shield as a snowboard.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild reviews and comments

A breath of fresh air for the Zelda series. While other Zelda games' appeal comes from dungeon design, the setting, or art direction, Breath of the Wild's appeal comes from chill lo fi exploration to relax and study to. This pairs extremely well with the Switch's ability to be used on the go, where finding a single shrine is a worthwhile quest.
Wonderful game!

Great game
Breath of the Wild has been a disappointment for the first few hours, but it grows on you little by little until you will not be able to stop playing. You will just need some time to wander around and figure out all the main mechanics. I usually don't like open-world games, but this is actually the first time I felt like exploring all areas and finding out new things rather than going on with the campaign. The continuous changes in the environment and the use of elements have a big influence on the game dynamics, and there are so many little details that will make the experience unique. Puzzles and fights can be solved in many different ways, and sometimes the craziest and inventive solutions end up being the most effective. Looting, cooking and picking up weapons can be frustrating at times, but it will eventually add to the satisfaction of finally being able to survive tougher areas and enemies.

However, while the open world is beautifully crafted and full of different things to do, the number of enemies is extremely limited. We probably have less than a dozen monsters endlessly multiplied by palette swapping. As map events are pretty sparse, running aimlessly and bumping into the same monsters all the time makes exploring pretty dull without a horse to speed up things. Little effort was also made in the plot and characters. All my interest was in exploring and getting stronger, but dialogues were mostly redundant and there is literally zero development in the characters and main story. Side-quests were mostly repetitive and come with very little rewards too (in some cases, you spend more on rupies and resources that what you will eventually get as a reward).

Breath of the Wild is overall one of the best open-world games in recent years in terms of gameplay, but the thin plot and quite repetitive dynamics are the only things preventing it from becoming a true masterpiece. (8.5/10)

Second time finishing this game and still want more!

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild tells you all you need to know before you boot up the game in the very title itself. A mastery of open world design that rewards thinking outside the box and avoids the clunk that other games of the genre can't escape from.

An experience that will stick with me forever. No less than one of the best games ever made, it takes you on a journey full of colourful characters that I remember fondly. The Hyrule depicted in this game is expansive and full of life, with a fully fleshed out map taking you from idyllic plains, to snowy mountaintops, to volcanic villages. I still remember every inch of this world.
