Reviewers Are in Love with Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Posted March 04, 2017

It has garnered flawless review scores at IGN, Polygon, Game Informer, Gamespot, Giant Bomb, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Forbes, Time, Destructoid, DualShockers and Yahoo, among others. In Breath of the Wild, you'll still be traveling on horseback, but you'll have to catch and tame your companion - and they aren't invulnerable.

Nature isn't always so pleasant, mind you. "But in an open world full of big changes, Breath of the Wild also nearly always feels like a Zelda game-and establishes itself as the first current, vital-feeling Zelda in nearly 20 years".

The truth is though, it works brilliantly.

Make your choice and you exchange four Spirit Orbs for it. You can also buy it digitally on the eShop or on a cartridge.

If you did everything correctly it should scan properly and an item or chest will appear before you in the game. And if you do want to check the temperature or your location, that information is a button-press away in the map screen.

The Goddess Statue locations are not as apparent as other places, but the one in Kakariko Village is the easiest to get to, especially after unlocking the Shrine nearby so you can fast travel to it.

Shifting Zelda into the fully-fledged open world realm was definitely a risk for the franchise, but one that has evidently paid off dividends, as critics universally agree that the open world is not only huge but also richly detailed and capable of enrapturing players for potentially more than 100 hours.

These references aren't so in-your-face that Zelda newcomers will feel left out, mind you. "Whenever you cut grass, you would get rupees", Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma said to Game Informer. Despite having a bit of a learning curve, the system showed it can open up the worlds that Nintendo has created without shuttering you from the real world. It presents a wonderful sandbox full of mystery, dangling dozens upon dozens of tantalizing things in front of you that just beg to be explored. At least, that was the mantra of those who thought an HD re-release wasn't the best idea for Nintendo's Gamecube/Wii entry in the franchise.

And when you finally finish the game, you'll look back on everything you've done and you too might decide that, yes, it was better than Ocarina Of Time after all. There's a chance you might just luck out.
