    I really like the concept of breaking some conventions and making the game feel new, but the game lacks on fitting into the zelda lore, and Event the divine beasts can be beaten in less then half an hour in your first playthrough. I thin kthr only thing the game did wrong was spending too much effort in the open world, and too less, on designing the dungeons atmospheric. they just can't feel as good, as a shadow temple from ocarina of time, or a stone tower temple in majoras mask, cause they aren't designed fitting the area around them. next point: y must the sheikah be high tech beings now? they were the assassins and murderers of hyrule, using magic to kill and torture people! it's just not fitting into the franchise. love the rest of the game though! great job!

    I wish BotW had a better story akin to say, Wind Waker or Spirit Tracks. Before you start angrily typing, BotW is a great game, I love it, but it's not a good *Zelda* game. Zelda is linear and focused on story, and that's the heart of what a Zelda game is. In BotW, the story was an afterthought and the characters don't get development because they're only shown in flashbacks (even with the Champion's Ballad, it only reveals a bit more about them and it took DLC to actually give them development instead of doing it in the first place.) I wish we had the chance to spend more time with the characters and get attached. And the lack of a companion such as Fi, Ciela, Navi, Zelda, and Midna makes you feel so much more alone. I wish story wasn't so much of an afterthought for BotW.

  • OrangeChicken


    16 วันที่ผ่านมา

    It's an alright Zelda game and the open-ended nature of it isn't bad. and the lonely atmosphere does wonders for the game. BotW was a good step back from the same formula that's been used since OoT but the story did suffer, tremendously.

    I had depression. I'm doing fine now, but I played this game back when I wasn't. My depression caused me to lose interest in things very quickly even if I am extremely interested in it at first. It sucked. I would play a game, fall in love with it, play it for like 2 weeks and then something would just feel... wrong. I would stop wanting to play it, it would feel like a chore, I wouldn't be motivated to play it. This happened with Smash Bros, Metroid, Animal Crossing, Terraria, Persona 5, and even Mario Maker. And then I played Breath of the Wild. This was the first game I had played in over a year that I didn't lose interest in within a month. In fact, I still play it today. I have put over 300 hours into this game and I've enjoyed every second of it. And if I do feel like I'm starting to lose interest, I can just explore a new area! Learn a new combat technique! Try speedrunning! Defeat Ganon! Try a new challenge! Ride a horse! And then there's Satori Mountain. Possibly one of my favorite locations in any video game. It's just so peaceful and fun to explore, and it's packed with Koroks, and everything there tells a story, and have you ever been on the part of Satori Mountain with the cherry blossom at sunrise? It's so pleasing to look at, although I guess that's not saying much because this is one of the most pleasing games to look at that I have ever played. This was the second game in my life that made me cry, the first being Mario Galaxy, which is coincidentally the first game I ever played. Mario Galaxy is an incredible game that stayed as my favorite game of all time for 11 years, and the only game that even came close to beating it was Super Metroid, but Breath of the Wild was a game I thought I could only dream of. Breath of the Wild blew every game I have ever played out of the water.

    I played the normal ver in english n master mode in Japanese voice (since its a japanese game) . Like Aonuma said, it will be a fun experience to switch things up. One thing i found when having the champions skills, Revali's Gale = Ribaru Tornado, which kinda "shocked" me bcus Tornado is an English word but they used Gale instead. And i hope soon when i have a better japanese reading skills, i want to play in japanese text. Bcus in our quest log, japanese version are more like a personal diary for Link in terms of his entries, especially the quest where you have to beat Calamity Ganon where he wrote dearly about saving Zelda.

  • Gabo2oo



    Japanese uses a lot of English words, but sometimes those words don't mean to them the same things that they mean to us. That's why the translations change them even if they were already "English".

    Can't even begin to describe the disappointment of seeing identical enemy models with no new enemies.. that was far and away the very most disappointing part of BOTW - the extreme lack of variety in wild enemies, always facing the exact same 3-4 of them over and over again, and here we go again....

  • Mujushin Kenjutsu
    Mujushin Kenjutsu2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    The people that complain about BOTW not having enough story or this or that should watch this. Everything was a deliberate decision. They decided to make a game that rewards experimentation and just messing around to create unexpected experiences. Its like free building with legos (botw) vs a lego set (God of War). I mention god of war just to highlight a more cinematic, on the rails experience. Not because these games are particularly similar. Lots of people wanted the lego set kind of Zelda. Those are the players that dont experiment or take things at face value. The players that loved it probably took to the games open ended style very well. Where one player sees "pointless, endless world" another player sees "Endless Possiblity. Im generalizing but many of the naysayers seem to be the ones who want to be told a story. They dont create their own, weird adventures using the game's basic systems to create accidental joy or entirely unique moments when all the elements meet in an unexpected way. I hope they continue with this design philosophy as you can rarely do both well. Zelda lends itself well to how they approached it.

    Don't defend it's story. There can be story and experimentation in the same game. The characters were flat, boring and (WOW HOLY MOLLY VOICE ACTINF JHFBSIFDGB) said maybe 2 minutes of dialogue each. Narratively, it's garbage. I love the wacky engine and all, but I want to have fun messing with the engine and also have fun hearing the story.
