Nearly every piece of equipment in the game deteriorates with use, which is a mechanic both frustrating and rewarding. Enemies which use weapons will drop them when they die, meaning you can use them. Some are much more desirable than others, but even the most grunt-level of implements serves a purpose, should you have room in your inventory for them, as they keep your favorite gear from wearing out. It's a fun method of resource management that keeps you more invested in finding and conserving the better gear.
In this game, there are no real health potions. Instead there's food! Both raw ingredients and cooked meals can be found in the world, but the real fun is cooking the raw foods into meals which offer various benefits. Few games implement cooking mechanics, and perhaps none do it as well as this game. it's pure joy coming up with new concoctions, although everything else pales in comparison to climbing to the top of high things and parasailing off of them.
Story is parceled out in this title in between the sandbox sessions, almost entirely dependent on when the player wishes to engage it (another similarity to an Elder Scrolls title). Here are plenty of the silly noises that are typical of Zelda characters, but sometimes there is a real cutscene with real voice acting, and those times feel valuable and exciting, since they are some of the few times you really feel connected to the story. But this title is at its best when the larger thread of story only sometimes intersperses the narrative created by the player in the world. In fact, nearly everything you can think of doing is not only possible, but is something the designers wanted you to try, and will reward you for doing.
I loved the gorgeous graphics and open world. The game has an almost infinite number of different questions and places to explore and do and can be fun to just walk around and explore.
Unlike previous Zelda games where you have to keep backtracking to do things with new tools you find, BOTW makes it feel more organic, as you explore the countryside and return to places to see new things and explore new parts you missed the first time. In earlier Zelda games, it always felt very grindy to me to have to keep returning to the same boring screen to walk in circles while you decide if you have the resources to break through a section and on to the next. This game is very fluid and always moves forward. If you get stuck, you can easily leave it for later.
Aside from the frustrations that arose with the difficulty and parts of the game that were just beyond infuriating to try to get through, the only thing I found really disappointing was the final boss.
I'd recommend the game to anyone, a fun take on Zelda lore in an open world.
