Zelda: Breath of the Wild
« on: March 20, 2017, 03:10:00 am »
So anyone here has played the new Zelda game for the Wii U and Switch? I personally like it and love the graphics and how polished it is, but I personally wouldn't give it 98-100%, more like 95%, because I feel that the difficulty has been ramped up way too much, thanks to the weapons breaking too often.

Not that it increases the difficulty that much, but when combined with the frequent one-hit kills by enemies, it kinda breaks the flow of the game. I think if they did like some Xbox and Playstation games and added a difficulty setting menu at the beginning, then the game would be pretty much perfect. Easy mode would be more for those who are still looking for a typical Zelda experience but wants to focus more on the story, while an unlockable hard mode could actually make the game even harder. I also feel that they could add more hints about how to do certain things, for those who are new to open world games of that scale.

The open world aspect is really nice, though, because sometimes I like to goof around and do what I want. Plus it makes the game more realistic. (although I don't think having to replace your sword everytime you kill one enemy is realistic :P). As for graphics, I like them and the lag is not even bad. Besides, have you ever seen a PS4 and Xbox One game that doesn't lag (Star Ocean 5 is particularly bad for that)?

I myself haven't done it yet, but a friend of mine has (it's pretty much all she's doing right now besides eat and sleep) and she totally LOVES it.
Looks like it's a worthy successor of the ancient Zelda games  :thumbsup:

I love the graphics of the nature ^^

Yes! I have it and it is and awesome game!

I love the open world and I immediately just went off into a random direction once I could. I even tackled one of the divine beasts before I even went to Kakariko village XD.

The weapons breaking is a bit annoying, and I got some rare ones that I didnt want to use due to this issue ... so I had to build some displays in my house to hold them.

Basically it will take me forever to actually finish the main storyline due to me basically doing all the side quests and such first.
