Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is the Nintendo Switch's launch title and although the Switch had nothing but mostly positive feedback, many ask is the newest Zelda game actually good. According to The Know, 'good' is an understatement and the question should be 'is Zelda: Breath of the Wild the best-reviewed game ever?' Apparently, it seems to be one of the best games of 2017 as most of the reviews about Zelda: Breath of the Wild have been nothing but praise.
Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Reviews
Overall, all the reviews agree that Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a unique and fresh take on the Zelda franchise that has redefined it and the open-world genre in general. Kotaku has dubbed it a game that says 'yes' to anything even to the craziest of players' and their experiments. The physics of the game is amazing and the gameplay is smooth especially in the Nintendo Switch.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild offers the most stunning visuals and Link's ability to climb, a feat that wasn't in any of the previous Zelda game, makes for a more rewarding exploration. Combat is harder in Zelda: Breath of the Wild and expect Link to die a lot in the game since death can also come from drowning or falling. The weapons and shields Link uses can break but the game does make up for it by constantly giving him more.
Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Story And Performance
There is nothing special about Zelda: Breath of the Wild in terms of story. Although it's simple and undoubtedly cliché, the execution is interesting. The characters Link will be meeting are charming and welcome surprises. The reviews do note that the voice acting of Zelda: Breath of the Wild could've been better.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild is praised for its art style and character design but the performance might lose its smoothness once in a while even in the Nintendo Switch. The frame rate goes down in dense forests, populated towns and stormy weather. Still Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an open world game that can occupy anyone's free time for however long it is. Is it worth buying with the Nintendo Switch? That's definitely a yes.
