    2 years later and neither the game or the console are cheaper. Glad there are plenty of used though.
    As for the next game, the BOTW sequel looks awesome.

    Blows my mind that Joe has never played Ocarina of Time.

  • Abraham Nicolson

    I got to accept I felt the story was a bit weak too compared to past Loz games but now that the sequel is announced I totally understand why, because it was just the beginning of the of the whole story!!

    Why can’t you just repair weapons...?

    • Papa Franku
      Papa Franku 5 days ago

      CamoLive cause then there’d be no use in having a variety of weapons or being creative in the ways that you approach a fight. If you could repair a weapon then you wouldn’t need them you’d just stock up on repair materials and only use your best weapon. It’s a little annoying but there’s a purpose for the durability

  • Stefano Rosas Lisinski

    Is this a game about someone that eats dirt and grass?? That’s what I thought when I saw the title

  • Stefano Rosas Lisinski

    I would rate it a 7.5 out of 10 for to much lag

      Stefano Rosas Lisinski huh? The frames drop occasionally and there’s some pop ins but other than that it runs really well. Might be your switch or something.

  • Godzilla 187

    Highly recommend you try the other zeldas like wind waker and ocarina of time which are arguably the best in the franchise. These are easily 10/10 Zelda games

  • Godzilla 187
    Godzilla 187 18 days ago

    This game was at least a 9/10 for me. Everything was perfect besides the atrocious weapon degradation and lack of a strong plot unlike previous Zelda games which have had awesome campaigns. Even with these downsides I still had to give this game a 9/10 almost a 10 just for the shear fact of how legendary this game is.

    It does a lot of things right but also a lot of them wrong. It's the first real open world zelda game and I hope the next one will actually deserve a 10/10. This game is more like a 8.5/10 it's good but not perfect.

    I'm not gonna lie...I didn't much care for this game. I started playing it and got frustrated within moments. I didn't care that the weapons broke, I didn't care that it could be overwhelming at times with where to go and certain puzzles. I LOVE puzzles and I love the fact that they made it a little tougher to get through them. No what I didn't like...was it stole the freaking same tactic that FFII did. Step in one area and you find yourself with same level enemies, barely move two steps into another are right beside it and get owned by a freaking laser of DEATH! And what used to give FFII such a bad name due to this tactic IS WHAT GETS ZELDA ITS PRAISE!! I can truly go anywhere! And let's be straight i don't mind that FFII gets its bad rap. No , to me i feel that it should scale in LOZ , because its an open world game, kinda like how other games did , like semi open world Borderlands. Like this, okay i kill goblins and Oh shit this went from easy to a bit tough not from easy to OMFG how'd i die!? People say it gets better after you get more hearts and abilities...but it ….just didn't suck me in. Unlike every Zelda game from Link to the past up to Twilight Princess i played jsut about every Zelda game and this one just missed the mark to me. And this is a guy who played Cursed Crusade all the way through....Yeesh, the hell was i thinking.

    I hate the flame on destructable weapons. Without it you'd get the master sword and never switch it out. Enemies wouldn't have to drop weapons at all. All of the weapons around would be useless.
    Altough I wish they had a repair feature, so you'd be able to keep the ones you really really love

  • Also Known As
    Also Known As 2 months ago +4

    Makes me laugh when people complain that there's too little music in this game. The subtitle is "Breath of the Wild"--the wild, ie Nature, is part of the ambience of the game. When there is music it's in specific, isolated situations in order to heighten the action and add dynamism.
    Additionally the sound design is integral to your survival, allowing you to assess potential threats and stay alert.

    • KevSB07
      KevSB07 Month ago

      Yea I really have no clue how they would go about doing music in this game and still keep the immersion and fluidity of the experience.

    2 hit breakage is the dumbest fuckin idea in zelda history

    • Megan Evans
      Megan Evans Month ago

      I think the only weapon in the game that breaks at two hits is a tree branch, which are easy to find.

  • Gabe Francka

    17:57 To immediately drop a weapon just throw it with R or the right bumper

    • Anti Riku
      Anti Riku 2 months ago +1

      that's throwing to be fair, which reduces the overall durability of the weapon, you can only drop it from the menu

      Silver Streak Month ago +1

      @Megan Evans I appreciate your honesty :)

    • Megan Evans
      Megan Evans Month ago

      @Silver Streak I really didn't mind the breaking mechanic. Weapons are easy to find in the game and it forces you to try new weapons instead of relying on one good weapon, which helps makes the fighting more interesting. Though I do wish there was a way to fix broken or damaged weapons. BotW is the first Zelda game I've played, so I'm not a fan who is defending their favorite franchise.

    • Silver Streak
      Silver Streak Month ago

      @Juan Loaiza I did play it. Game got boring. I understand how fans like to defend their favorite franchise but people need to learn how to be honest and admit when their franchise does something dumb. It's just like dbz fans who believes that dbz can't do anything wrong when it reality dbz games have been shitty for a long time before fogjterz. I may not love the legend of Zelda series but honestly like come on, weapons not only breaking but breaking at the rate they do. People need to admit it, it's a dumb mechanic.

    Is it worth purchasing a Switch just to experience this game? Is it that good, with a lot of replay value? I've never saw an appeal for a Switch until recently, mostly because they dont have many mature/serious titles that I know of. But yeah, this game seems awesome.

      The game is great in my opinion, but I'm not sure if it's worth getting a Switch for. If BoTW is the only game you want to play on the Switch, then you might want to wait until other Switch games you want are released.

    The intro is why I couldn’t even play this game. Weapon durability was so low, I trashed my other weapons, fighting a boss/monster. Realized that I had to restart the entire game just to save all my weapons... and I lost the will to play.

  • Ahri
    Ahri 3 months ago +2

    I personally think that this game was more enjoyable as someone who liked the older games, as it makes the transition to open world that much more breathtaking
    I'd give it a 9.5/10. The exploration/thrill of discovery and the combat were the highlights for me. My small complaints were the lack of enemy variety and the shitty dungeons/dungeon bosses compared to the older games (except for Hyrule Castle which was an excellent dungeon)

    • KevSB07
      KevSB07 Month ago

      Now I have no context for the other games, but I would say that it's more enjoyable as someone who hasn't played any of the other games. I have no precedent for anything that recurs in Zelda, especially the dungeons, which are the major point of contention with fans of Zelda games of past. In my opinion, due to my complete lack of Zelda experience, I enjoyed the enemy variety, the shrines, the divine beasts, the story/memories, and the weapon system.

      @Stefan Constantin Dumitrache Dude it's fine I didn't misunderstand you I was just kinda joking and I won't judge other people opinions ( Well except if what opinion is wrong ) BOTW was also my first Zelda game and I loved it. It got me to play older Zelda games. Its good that you enjoyed BOTW so I would recommend some of the older games. Sure they are nothing like BOTW and they are kinda hard to play now days since they are mostly on Wii U, Wii, DS and GBA but they are good and fun games. Don't misunderstand me I was just joking about you being a Zelda hating scrub. Same here about oot I just can't find N64 and a copy of oot since it's hard to find Nintendo consoles that came before the WII and DS where I live. Thank you and have a good day

      @Myre 36 I love BotW, don't get the point of Fortnite, never played a CoD game. Recently got in to Warframe on Switch, don't know ho often I'll play. Since finding BotW about 3 weeks ago I rarely tried other games and none of them was on PC. So yeah, I LOVE BotW! But never really got in to the previous games. Probably they are not modern enough. Can't get used with the cameras and the controls. And I really wanted to play OoT.
