    The bar has been raised for the open world genre

    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

    From a PS4 owner

    Just to give you a bit of my gaming background. I've been a gamer since the original NES and switch to Sony's as my main gaming platform since the PSX. Although I did owned a N64 (in which I completed Majoras Maks) and a... Read Full Review

    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

    The return of the golden NES game

    Been a while since we got any Zelda that was like the first one. This game play pretty much like the first one. Once you have that paraglider you can get everywhere in the game and explore. While I had a lot of fun with ... Read Full Review

    Hyrule is Alive

    This is the most impressive game that I have ever seen in my life. I have a time of 205 hours of this game. So I’m pretty sure that I have a good grasp on this game. This is a masterpiece and in my opinion, better ... Read Full Review

    Its not a masterpiece, but its good

    The story is pretty generic and not very interesting; the whole main quest is going to 4 places, once you get there you are almost immediately led to the "dungeon", and I´m being generous by calling a place with a ... Read Full Review

    Breath of the Wild Review by Mariah Morales

    The game that makes Zelda great again!

    Prior to this game, the last great Zelda game had been Majora's Mask. The subsequent games had either been too easy, filled with gimmicks, just rehashes with nothing new, or all of the above. (There was Link Between Worl... Read Full Review

    If you go back to the original

    What happens if you make another Zelda game? You need to make it brand new and original. What happens if you make it too original? It becomes game of the year and becomes a system seller. Botw is a perfect example of tha... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild review (Nintendo switch)

    I’ve never been too big into the legend of zelda series. I’ve enjoyed the past games, but I’ve never really given them the same praise as others have. But with breath of the wild, I absolutely agree with the universal ac... Read Full Review
