The verdict is out on "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" video game and critics agree that the new RPG for the Nintendo Switch is an wonderful launch game for fans to enjoy. And this rudimentary test iteration of the game bears a striking resemblance to the very first entry in the series.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a survival game and like many games of that genre, players will need to find ways to maximize their health.

So Nintendo compromised and came up with Breath of the Wild's art style, one that features bright colors but also more realistic proportions and detailing.

Zelda Breath of the Wild is finally here and after months of waiting it is fantastic to see the game getting flawless review scores all across the board making it a truly unmissable title for all gamers across the globe.

Every time Nintendo releases a new Zelda game it's a special occasion. However, Breath of the Wild edges away from them. While Nintendo's intentions for making Switch cartridges bitter were holistic, it hasn't stopped many fans from mocking the odd decision.


The game looks so good in its 2D iteration, that many people have said they would play a game like that now, suggesting it could be worth Nintendo considering making a Zelda game of yesteryear in the future. Much of this carries over to the older console, but our focus is on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch. This way you can keep one at home plugged into the dock and take the other one with you on the go. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an evolution of the formula for both eastern and western philosophies alike, and a new blueprint. Gamers would nearly feel like they're playing a Nintendo version of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series. This is something that we love to see in games as it gets you right into the adventure.

"Nintendo may have changed so many long-standing traditions of the Zelda franchise, but the spirit of discovery is as strong as it's ever been no matter your age". Despite the massive scope of the game, Breath of the Wild retains Nintendo's knack for polish without any major technical hiccups to disrupt the experience.

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.
