Reviewers Are in Love with Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Posted March 03, 2017

Forbes, 10/10: The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild isn't just the best Zelda game I've ever played. At times the game alludes to them, but the majority of the time, you're left to figure them out on your own, either by experimenting or completing a sidequest that introduces a particular mechanic. And we're more delighted by the whole thing than grown professionals ought to be.

Be wary, there are potential spoilers ahead. They'll look at what went right, what went wrong and what inspired them.

EuroGamer said the risk that Nintendo has taken with Breath of the Wild can not be overstated. He explains that there are now two teams developing "The Legend of Zelda" games according to an interview on Game Informer.

What's old is new (and in this case, also went from green to blue). Features such as new difficulty level, a new function for the map and a new challenge called "The Cave of Trials" are promised in this expansion.

Six of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors were higher, with gains in energy and financials helping counter losses in consumer staples. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also fell, with consumer discretionary lagging after disappointing results from Target ( TGT ).

Not only is the new game the latest installment in one of the most hallowed franchises in gaming, it's the unquestionable crown jewel in the launch of the Nintendo Switch (despite also being available on Wii U). However, after technically passing my pre-calculus class, my mother suggested just because I couldn't make games didn't mean I couldn't write about them. Somehow, the adventure never loses momentum over dozens of hours of exploration, the inspired design holds up, making for an unmistakable Zelda game that completely changes everything expected from the series. I am a dyed-in-the-wool Zelda convert, its epic tale of the recurring Hero of Time besting beasties and conquering labyrinthine dungeons winning me over every time.

To support the development of Breath of the Wild, a decision was made to use the Havoc engine to help create the game's complex physics simulation.

Although Nintendo has removed several of the classic Zelda themes from Breath of the Wild, the new title might still shine as a highlight of the series. At the Game Developer Conference it showed this off in all its glory, highlighting a game that looks very much like the original Zelda releases on the NES.

Those hoping to play the best possible version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild need be lucky enough to have put in a Nintendo Switch preorder and be ready to play in handheld mode.
