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.

Never has a game felt quite as alive as Breath of the Wild. Initially I was a little put off by the differences between this and previous Zelda entries, but that soon changed to absolute adoration. Not only does it have a massive world, but it's a massive world filled with characters, animals, quests, mini-dungeons (shrines), and secrets. It plays surprisingly smoothly on the Wii U. I've heard things of frame drops, but I haven't experienced that at all (though, to be fair, this could be because I've been playing exclusively on the gamepad). One thing I truly love about Breath of the Wild is the challenge. Standard Bokoblins aside, every battle legitimately feels like a punishing life or death situation with little room for error. Weapons break fairly quickly and I love this. It adds to a frantic sensation of wild survival. What's more, there are little surprises around every corner. I have yet to find an area where exploration didn't bare fruit. While damn near perfect, it has a few minor issues. Firstly, the control scheme may take a while to get used to - the button configuration is kind of all over the place (some commands could probably have been simplified to one button rather than multiple). Secondly, the English voice acting is horrendous, and as far as I know there's no way to change it on the Wii U version. Finally, the actual dungeons aren't nearly as massive as pre-release rumors suggested. Naturally, this isn't the game's fault, rather misinformation leading to speculative hype. The dungeons are fun, but pretty short. The true satisfaction comes from the exploration of the seamless world.

First Zelda game I'd given a crap about since Link's Awakening:DX I don't really have to explain why....it's pretty universally loved.

Simply one of the best games I've ever played. It is stunning to be playing Zelda in 2018 and realize that we are now at the top of the Zelda mountain after a generation. The sense of freedom in Breath of the Wild is unparalleled.
Probably the best game ever made.
Great great game.

Its actually not so bad, but no in sandbox way. For sandbox this game do not propose any motivation to explore the world: no interesting quests, no best gear which I can find only by exploration, no achievements or so. Just cool locations for time spending. These shrines doesn't do it best game ever. So if you will just go straight to the storyline, you will actually love it.
Number one open world action RPG game.
You may say thay I'm just a hater, but Zelda BOTW isn't worth spending tens or hundreds of hours of your life. This is a pretty dull and empty game with so much mechanics, that You will soon get bored of it. Overrated and boring sandbox

Это первая (и надеюсь, не последняя) пройденная Зельда. На прохождение ушло кучу времени. Игра затянула своим геймплеем: он старомоден и полон различных механик, которые раздражают (например, прокачка через данжи с головоломками под конец начинает люто бесить, особенно когда нужно что то делать с помощью гироскопа). Но когда понимаешь и принимаешь все правила игры, тебя затягивает и хочется пройти все, что в botw есть. Из слабых вещей тут графон и сюжет, но первое на приставке с мобильным процессором не должно удивлять, а второе особо не раздражает, когда ты принимаешь ее как линейную сказку, задача которой хоть как то построить геймплей воедино. В итоге, Зелда botw одна из лучших игр на Nintendo switch. Рекомендую к покупке. Write a review

Este debe ser el mejor juego que he jugado en 30 años de vida. Una obra maestra cuyo único aspecto negativo es que tiene un fin.
