Zelda is a must-have for gamers

Last month with the release of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo also released the next iteration of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  An action adventure game that is developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U, Breath of the Wild follows the protagonist Link, who has been asleep for 100 years only to awaken to find the kingdom of Hyrule threatened by Calamity Ganon.

Unlike past Legend of Zelda games, Breath of the Wild features a physic engine with high definition visuals inside of an open world environment that also includes voice acting now.  Players are placed in the open world with little instruction and are free to tackle the journey as they please at their own pace.

This is a game that is built on trial and error and gamers will experience a lot of the latter.  Although you may die a lot in the game, players can continue a short distance from where they died to reevaluate what killed them before.  This trial and error and the open world are what make Breath of the Wild so unique and entertaining.

Players will find a multitude of weapons, bows and arrows, shields, armor, materials, food and key items to help throughout the journey. The weapons, bows and shields in this iteration of Zelda have a life expectancy and will break over time after repeated use which causes players to think before using certain weapons.  There is also a cooking system that allows the player to make meals and elixirs to replenish health as well as boost stamina or other status effects.

The sheer volume of content and missions found within the game is overwhelming at times and is for sure to give the gamer their money’s worth.  Littered throughout the world are shrines that include puzzles which upon completion award gamers with more gear and key items.  Also, there are four huge dungeons that include boss battles unlike any other Zelda games.  I have over 40 hours in the game and I haven’t even beaten a quarter of the game yet.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the better games I’ve played and is easily game of the year for me right now.  There is little I found wrong with the game.  One piece of criticism I could find was the game did not explain early on the cooking mechanic; however, it was later introduced to me in one of my missions.  I think all in all Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest games out right now and is a must-have for any gamers.
