I’ve finally just finished Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Although it took me a while to actually get round to playing it due to reason I said about in a previous blog I find that now I’ve finished it in at a bit of a loss and I really can’t wait for the sequel.
Breath of the Wild is a huge and extremely beautiful game, and the number of hours that I put into finishing it seemed to fly by.
Over my playthrough I did most of the quests if not all and all the shrines. These extra little dungeons really added that little bit different to the game. Although some are frustrating – I’m looking at you motion-controlled maze – they’re fun and also help towards buildup Link either in health or stamina, so they’re well worth doing.
I was almost tempted when I got the point of having done the Divine Beasts of rushing straight to Ganon but putting the time into the shrines gives a good pay off, plus you get a little something after doing them all that old-school Zelda fans will appreciate.
I wish I’d played it sooner now that I’ve finished it, but at least there’s less time between it and the sequel now. I just hope my Switch continues to work so I might actually buy it.
I would definitely recommend this game to anyone, lovers of Zelda games or not.
