Top Customer Reviews
+Best Zelda story to date. Yes, it may be the same premise, but there is much more depth this time around. There are other things going on, not just Link rescuing Zelda. All of the side quests add so much to the main story. The depth is what makes the game succeed.
+Voice acting adds a lot to some of the characters we already know and love, including Zelda herself. It makes for a richer and more interesting story.
+Gameplay is king in Zelda games. We all know this. BOTW is no different. There is a ton of gameplay variety, more than there has ever been. Everything from fighting, exploring, cooking, transportation, it's all been either improved or newly introduced.
+Open World and Exploration are front and center in BOTW. The open world design allows you take whatever path you choose. While most Zelda games in the past were linear, this is not the same. Whatever approach you prefer is completely fine. The freedom really shines through in BOTW.
+The beautiful art style makes up for anything lacking in the graphics department. The Wii U and Switch are not on par with the PS4 and Xbox One, so don't expect that type of beauty, but the art style truly does make a big difference. Nintendo has always been king when it comes to gorgeous art and design. Exploration is one of the game's biggest draws. Conquering the 100+ shrines is amazing!
+Wii U and Switch versions offer choice for the gamer. You don't have to upgrade to the Switch to experience BOTW. The Wii U version is every bit as great as the Switch one. In fact, I owned the Switch version but got rid of it in favor of the Wii U version. I did not see the point in upgrading since the only other Switch game I care about is Mario Odyssey and that doesn't come out for almost another year.
+More than 100 hours of gameplay offers major value (in your wallet) and replay value. There is always something to see and do!
+The game world is absolutely huge. This lends itself to many hours of fun, whether you are doing side quests, the main quests, shrines, or goofing off.
+Challenging and thought provoking puzzles are a standout in BOTW. Every shrine has a challenging puzzle, while most boss battles require you to solve a puzzle as well.
+Cooking is really fun. Doing recipes is a blast, just experimenting with food can be an interesting distraction.
+Great A.I., from the main characters, townsfolk and enemies.
+Use the Wii U Pro controller for the best experience. It is more tight and comfortable than the GamePad. I don't have experience with the Switch Pro Controller (probably because it's $70!) but I am sure it's superior to the Joy-Cons and Grip.
-Weapons break a lot, maybe too much. I found that a lot of my time was devoted to changing weapons, whether in a battle or not. It's not a game-breaker but it is an annoyance.
Overall, Zelda BOTW is an all time great. It's a game you must experience and have in your collection. I bought the Wii U version, but the choice is yours. Go out and buy it to experience something you will never forget!
My favorite part of Zelda games has always been exploring for the overworld for heart pieces/items and using dungeons to break those up. This game is almost entirely exploration and it's so fun to climb mountains, attack enemy camps, and search for shrines. I honestly find dungeons kind of frustrating in Zelda, as I usually end up getting stuck because I forgot to look behind one spot or missed a key somewhere. The shrines are perfect for me, a quick 5-10 minute puzzle that I can run through before moving on to the next thing.
They also nailed the major issue I have with 3D Zeldas, namely that it takes too long to get anywhere. Fast travel opens up almost immediately after the game starts. What's better is there are tons of stuff to discover on the way to new areas. People on the roads, enemy camps, shrines, new plants, and animals etc.
Finally, I have to comment on the people scattered throughout Hyrule. They're an utterly charming bunch of characters. My favorite was a man who offered to give me a tour of Hateno Village. His brimming enthusiasm about his town even though he was out of breath running from place to place put a big smile on my face.
Even after putting dozens of hours into the game I can't wait to go home and play it some more. I haven't felt this way since Super Mario Galaxy and I've never had this feeling sustained for 60+ hours of gameplay. Nintendo pulled off an incredible feat, making a Zelda in the style of open world classics while outdoing other games in the genre in almost every way.
Sound: The hooting of an owl, the scurrying of a lizard, the sound of the wind flowing through the grass, the crack of lightning nearby, the rain hitting the mountain side you are climbing, and the occasional music that adds to the environment you're currently traversing. The music definitely takes a step back here, because of the emphasis on ambient sounds as you walk, run, ride or climb around Hyrule. It all adds to the feeling that you are truly exploring a world for the first time. I do miss the awesome music from Zelda's past, but what is there does work.
Combat: Combat is easy to get a grasp of, but surprisingly deep. There are a multitude of ways to tackle enemies.
And I'm not a game reviewer, so I'm going to stop there. I've played over 40 hours of this game and it's an absolute delight. This game sucked me in like no game has in a long, long time. I have no regrets on purchasing a Switch, a pro controller, a case, screen protectors and it was all for this game (and also future games). Well worth the money I spent. Buy it!
