    The Zelda series needs no introduction, and neither does its latest installment, Breath of the Wild (BotW). Nintendo did the same thing they did with Twilight Princess and released it as both the final great game for th... Read Full Review

    A VERY welcome addition to the Zelda family

    After a few years away from gaming, I decided to return specifically for BotW based on the trailer, the hype, and my nostalgia for the series in general. I'm happy to say that, despite a few minor issues, Nintendo has do... Read Full Review

    Breath Of The Mild

    Breath of the wild wastes no time attempting to suck you into its world with gorgeous visuals and music. But don’t be fooled it doesn’t matter how beautiful the icing is that you put on a cake, if the cake it... Read Full Review

    As a 40yo father of three who values their time away from video games (imagine that) this is unplayable. The actual score I give it doesn't matter. I stopped playing it after 2 hours.Did Nintendo successfully implement... Read Full Review

    This is not your father's Zelda game

    The Legend of Zelda series has been highly praised for years and despite how much love the series has gotten over the years, several games still had some issues. Windwaker and Twilight Princess were too disgustingly easy... Read Full Review

    From a PS4 owner

    A very amazing game, for the first few hours...

    The game was praised and loved, but after some time, it gets repetitive. I would say WAY too repetitive. It has an amazing story and groundbreaking gameplay, as well as interesting mechanics, such as the shrines, which ... Read Full Review

    I’m a decades old Zelda fan, but this is horrible

    Every time there is a new Zelda I buy a nintendo (if I don’t already have the current generation). It’s typically the only nintendo game I care about aside from Metroid. So that should give you a sense of how much I like... Read Full Review
