Hi


I've been playing this for a week now and it is EPIC.

The game play reminds me of WOW etc where you can just spend a day farming items or you can explore and climb everything. One thing that I find annoying is the switch controller is way too sensitive when you crouch; I keep knocking the stick and crouching at inconvenient times like when I'm being swarmed by those pig dudes. I find the other controls too touchy so I bought one of the solid controllers - it's so much better.

I love being free to explore and do my own thing rather than the linear play of oldschool OoT and MM.

It did kinda make me sad that Link doesn't have an Ocarina/instrument. I loved the concept of altering time etc with music. I even bought an ocarina back in the day (cause I'm a geek) and learnt all the songs haha. I also wanted Link to have a fairy, because real men have fairies and I didn't mind Navi's "LISTEN!!".

If you're new to Legend of Zelda franchise you'll love it. The stories pretty self explanatory. But of course if you've played the original games you'll recognise much of the back story of the Deku Tree etc and the place name references.

Also is Beedle a boy or girl??

Have you played it? What other games in the franchise have you played?
What say you ATS?

I've played every Zelda game, ever, and I LOVE Breath of the Wild. I've done everything but find all of the Korok seeds. I too was disappointed in the lack of fairies and an instrument, but the gameplay more than makes up for it.

I've never played a Zelda game and to be honest never wanted to play one until Breath of the Wild , I've watched videos of people playing it and it looks epic, sadly no PC release on the cards but it is playable using CEMU emulator so I may take a trip down that road at some point.

If it has a water temple count me out.

I remember Oot and I was thinking ' thank flipping god that's over' then fast forward a few years and just as you've overcome your PTSD that was the water temple, Twilight Princess comes out with water temple V 2.0 and honestly I was nearly in tears.

Please tell me there is no water temple.

Good game...

I was dissapointed with the ending, though..

It seems like putting together Hyrule castle was an after thought for Nintendo..it was boring....

And Ganon?....beat him first attempt...he was way easier than the Lynels...I was left wondering, "is that it?"

I LOVE the Lynels!!! I've spent entire days off work hunting and fighting them.

This short video seems to sum it up nicely. It looks like an awesome video game.

With that said, it strikes me as being more annoying than entertaining. I like video games that are over in a hurry like fighting games where you can compete with friends.

Yep..the Lynels were the best part of the game imo....too bad there weren't more bad a$$ enemies like 'em in the game.

..The enemies in the Yiga Clan hideout were also pretty cool......but again, fighting the Clan boss was a let down. His attacks were weak and he just seemed like a big Pu$$y.

I got it.
Must have for switch imo.

Sadly I am stretched across two other rpgs (xenoblade chronicles 2 and ffxffx2 remastered ) not to mention Lost Sphear in a few weeks.

Zelda kicks butt and so does the switch...

I play Disgaea 5 on the toilet

I didn't like it. But then again, I'm fairly over openworld games. Breath of the Wild combined all the worst parta of open world games with none of the few things that make ir good. It took all the tedius pointlessness of openworld games stripped away any of the small amount of progression those games have and left you with a big pointless wandering around a pretty world.

Honestly if I want to go look at trees and mountains, I'll go for a hike. If I'm playing a video game, there's got to be some point to it, some kind of progressive challenge and a feeling of skill based accomplishment, either through increasing difficulty or puzzles or some other such thing. When I'm playing a game I want to do things not look at things happening. I don't care how big or beautiful a game world is if it's full of nothing.

The new Zelda, most of the assassins creeds I've seen or played, Oblivion,Skyrim, Fallout, Farcry and the other hundreds of ripoff games all have the same problem. No matter where you go or what you do it's pointless. You can explore a hundred dungeons, you'll never find anything worthwhile or gamechanging, 90% of the game is filled with crafting, collecting mundane objects, or hunting animals for their leavings...that you craft into more crap....

I'm a huge fan of the older Zelda and Metroid style games. Exploring a world that's not completely open to you until you've found something that's needed to open some obscure part you passed by a while ago, everything you find in those games has a purpose and a noticeable effect on your character the moment you find it, there's a scaling sense of challenge as you progress and a feeling of accomplishment as you solve a puzzle you've been struggling with or find that one thing you missed that you had to scour the entire world for.

Or then there's Dwarf Fortress...


I think that may have been the game that spoiled me on open world games. There's nothing quite like a game that simulates thousands of years of history and tracks everything down to the individual personalities of every single thing that exists in the world for all the world's history.

A very interesting post. I liked the look of A Link to the Past back when I was a kid and would see my brother playing it. Never had a go though, but I did start with Ocarina of Time. I had read reviews and looked forward to it, but unfortunately, I never really took to it, not sure why but it did seem to be a bit gloomy and relatively empty. I am sure others will not agree though!
I played Minish Cap and one or two others for a wild, but just never took to them like I had hoped to.
My son got Breath o the day of release and he loves it. I can appreciate the size and sheer scale of the game, but it looks quite bleak and without the charm of other Zelda games. I appreciate this is only my view, but I found your open world opinion quite fascinating and although I have never really plays too many - with the exception of GTA games, I think you have a very good point. Super Metroid etc seems better, I do prefer a degree of linear progression in games, with some elements of freedom - think FF7 etc.

I personally love this game, it's immense and breathtaking. I am really enjoying it. Has anyone tried the DLC for the game? I was wondering if it was really worth it.
