      @Shinsuke - sama I was ready for this. No, don't care about Zelda but I see near drawing distances, low detail and other charastetics that define graphics.

      So im guessing that you are a millenial new generation who think that game is supposed to be all about when people cant get the charm of a game with different art style

    I don’t agree with your criticism with the button mapping. Obviously it would be nice and I’ve recently gotten a switch and made those mistakes, but that criticism could be applied to coming from a Nintendo console to a PS4 or Xbox.

    The weapon durability was absolute bullshit. Nintendo created a solution to a problem that they also created. They didn't need to make it so that enemies had a 100-percent chance to drop their weapon.

    Well yeah of course you would issue that seal like that. I mean Skyrim meets Zelda, what could wrong? Nothing, absolutely nothing when wrong. I own it on the wii U but once I get a switch I'm buying it again because graphics a thing I never do.

    Literally the only thing I can complain about with this game is that I will never be able to get any of the amiibo outfits and weapons. I don't care so much for the weapons because you know, they break. I want the armor :/
    I suppose also the fact that with all the stick drift, once yours goes wonky the game is cancer to play

    I'd give this game a 9.5 do to the voice acting and weapon breaking. This game is amazing. Everyone should try it.

      The weapon breaking is awful. Giving players options is a good thing, but forcing them to use weapons they don't like is not. The game seems to be all about player freedom and creativity so it's crazy that one of the main features goes against that design philosophy.

    • Conner Smart
      Conner Smart Month ago +2

      I give it a 10 the voice acting sure is bad but this is zelda also weapon breaking is good you have to explore find new weapons better weapons and not just have a weapon forever

  • Dream Eater

    This game always gave me a Shadow Of The Colossus vibe, with the open fields and mountains, as well as the stamina based climbing mechanics.

    Dear Joe,

    This isn't Nintendo's own Dark Souls, Dark Souls copied Zelda gameplay. The controls aren't Nintendo doing their own thing, Nintendo is using the same button layout as the SNES, Xbox and Playstation did their own thing. Sure, this is your first Nintendo game, but Nintendo's been doing this since the 80's.

    Botw is my first Zelda game, and I find it amazing. I started playing 2 months back cause it was sitting in my switch case for 2 years. I absolutely love it.

    Angry Joe's first nintendo review? Lol. This game is overrated, for sure. Definitely NOT a 10, unlike Witcher 3. This game runs like trash. Nintendo needs to really focus on better hardware, because you can make the best game in the world, but if it runs like shit like Breath of the Wild, it won't matter how good it is. Witcher 3 shits all over BotW for graphics, voice acting, combat, open world, and story.

    It gets a 10 from me despite it's flaws. Yeah the story may not be great but they MORE than make up for it with the amazing open world. I think it's wrong to sum up a score with a product of all the factors like: music, story, graphics... nope that's the wrong way to look at it imo. What if a game spends 10 x the energy than any other on gameplay and don't even worry about story? Well that's a valid way to make game too. It's all about the final experience and how clever the game design is... how they get there does not really matter so much. Is there room for improvement? for sure... but is it he best open world game even now two years later? Yes it is. 10/10.

    There is a way to repair weapons before they break, if your favorite weapon is about to break, stash it ,take it to the blacksmith and you can have it fixed . I will let you figure out where and how to get to them 😁

      I bought a Switch just for this game, and it was the only game I played on it for over a year. I just recently bought Odyssey, which I've also only heard good things about, but as far as I'm concerned my Switch has paid for itself with my BOTW experience.

    I can agree with the score. A massively wonderful game that has just a couple tiny spots that need improving. I played it at my brothers and it got me hooked and I went out and bought a Switch and this game plus one other. I don't regret my decision one bit.
