    What I think of Breath of The Wild

    It set the bar high

    I must admit it took me quite a while to start liking it, there some things that can/need to be fixed, but the idea goes for a very interesting way in the future, I can't believe how open world can be and physics accura... Read Full Review

    Pros:- vast open world- items break. Throwing a sword thats about to break at the enemy feels good- characters are interesting, very zelda-esque- music is great- parry system brings more skill to the table- can approach... Read Full Review
