In this 3D open-world entry in the Zelda series, Link is awakened from a deep slumber without his past memories in the post-apocalyptic Kingdom of Hyrule, and sets off on a journey to defeat the ancient evil Calamity Ganon. Link treks, climbs and glides through fields, forests and mountain ranges while meeting and helping friendly folk and defeating enemies in order to gather up the strength to face Ganon.
Link awakes in a mysterious chamber after 100 years of slumber to find that Calamity Ganon has taken over Hyrule Castle and left Hyrule to decay and be taken over by nature.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Reviews & Ratings
My vote for the best game ever made. However, it's really difficult to explain why it is so good. If you look at Metacritic, reviews areMy vote for the best game ever made. However, it's really difficult to explain why it is so good. If you look at Metacritic, reviews are either very negative, or perfect. If exploration and combat are your thing, this is a 10. There aren't linear paths like in previous games, no items locked behind achievements; if this is the type of game you really like, there is none of it here.My advice for its enjoyment is that you should go in with no expectations and let the game wow you. If you go in expecting to be impressed beyond your wildest dreams, the game will feel... too calm. It's best enjoyed while relaxed.
Where it takes mechanics from others in the industry, it improves upon them; where it introduces new ones, you slap your forehead in amazement that it hasn’t been done before. Breath of the Wild is development done right, and damn near the best game you’ll play all year.
Seriously amazing. And I'm not a gamer. It's so immersive but not overwhelming. It's challenging without being frustrating. It's fun. It'sSeriously amazing. And I'm not a gamer.

Whilst i haven't had a chance to complete the game the game was nothing short of breath taking. Being a fan of the series i had noticed thatWhilst i haven't had a chance to complete the game the game was nothing short of breath taking. Being a fan of the series i had noticed that whilst 'The Legend of Zelda' games kept the promise of a fantastic story line and game play, it began lacking something special.As someone that held Zelda at high regard as it helped me become an aspiring games artist i look closely into the elements that make it special such as its immersive music, the feel of being Link himself and mind working puzzles, it gives me ideas which i can base some of my projects on. Breath of The Wild however held something more special. Like it's predecessors link remained mute with text and sounds of course leaving the player to decide. However this time, all other characters had a voice, adding much more immersive play element to this game. The environment and music also followed giving you subtle rising sound tracks that blends in with the immersive play and breath taking environments, reminding me of why i fell in love with this great title series.I find it even more interesting that i can learn new things i didn't actually know you could do in the game before with people who also play the game! the game has definitely brought me hours of fun (though still incomplete).I can not give it a solid 10 however as the game feels incomplete and rushed. Despite this however, it is very much deserves a 10 because even though feeling incomplete, has so much content that an average person would feel it may have been over done.I hope to play more games like this in the future, Fantasy game developers should take notes from this game, it truly is incredibly close to a masterpiece as Ocarina of time was.
A new direction for the franchise that is as brilliantly successful as it is bold, Breath of the Wild raises the bar for a series that has already set a phenomenally high standard.
