So The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild has been out for a little over a week as of this post. A quick glance at review sites show that they have nothing but praise for this game. I decided to collect site opinions and share them here.
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild isn’t just the best Zelda game I’ve ever played. It’s one of the best video games I’ve ever played. Period.
It’s both a return to form and a leap into uncharted territory, and it exceeds expectations on both fronts.
The fact that BOTW continues to surprise you with newfound rules and possibilities after dozens of hours is by far its most valuable quality.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a masterclass in open-world design and a watershed game that reinvents a 30-year-old franchise.
I guess, in the end, it’s not just that Breath of the Wild signals that Zelda has finally evolved and moved beyond the structure it’s leaned on for so long. It’s that the evolution in question has required Nintendo to finally treat its audience like intelligent people. That newfound respect has led to something big, and different, and exciting.
Attack of the Fanboy: 5/5
The simple fact is that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games ever made.

Never before in my life have I seen such high ratings, but now that I’m hearing from EVERYONE and even very well respected independent reviewers, I truly think we may have stumbled upon one of the greatest video games created.
I almost regret not buying a Switch.
