Description

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action adventure game from Nintendo, the latest in the length Legends of Zelda series. The game is fairly freeform, with little in the way of instruction given to players. The game predominantly involves gathering resources, completing side missions and solving puzzles.

About the Game


A lot of the game’s charm revolves around the fact that it rewards experimentation, so you are positively encouraged to go off script and explore out of the way areas of the map. The main story arc can be completed in a non-linear fashion, so you can choose how and when you complete each task rather than being forced into a restricted course of action.

The game’s prize-winning graphics, physics engine and high-quality voice acting saw it being named Game of the Year and it has been touted as one of the greatest video games of all time as well as being – understandably – the best-selling Zelda game ever.

What’s the Story?


The realm of Hyrule has an ancient enemy, Ganon, who has been trapped (about one hundred years before the beginning of the game)

Link in and Explore


The protagonist of the game is, as always, Link, who can explore the land of Hyrule with a range of actions from swimming to walking or running; even climbing or gliding with a paraglider. Keep an eye on Link’s stamina though, some activities will wear him out faster than others.

The world is carefully thought-out, with players able to attract lightning strikes on their enemies by throwing metal at them. However, wait too long to strike, or wear metal yourself and you will be the one getting blitzed!

Power-Ups and Valuables


You always have something to do in this game, and do not be tempted to rest on your laurels once your armoury is full. Unlike in most other games, weaponry and shields degrade over time, so you have to constantly be on the look out for replacements or the materials to make them.

Here are some other things to watch out for:

  • Weapons: these can be made of many materials. Wooden armour and weapons can be used as firewood when needed, giving them a useful purpose, especially towards the end of their lifespan, when they begin to degrade

  • Food: this is obtained by hunting animals, gathering berries and even using parts of enemies’ bodies. Food items can be cooked according to recipes found within the game to create potions and meals that give Links power-up, temporary boosts, or that simply fill his health and stamina metres

  • Shrines: make sure that you investigate every shrine that you come across. While some might end up with you having a fight or needing to solve a puzzle, the rewards are usually worth it. Shrines can also contain Spirit Orbs which can be traded for health or stamina, or puzzles that provide you with a Korok Seed which can be traded in exchange for inventory items

  • Towers and Waypoints: working out how to activate towers is strongly advised. This enables you to warp between points, as well as adding new, unnamed, areas to the map. Once you explore these regions, the name will be added


  • Fulfil the Secret Mission


    If the player completes certain missions including releasing the Divine Beasts and locating the Master Sword amongst others, they will unlock a secret ending in which Link and Zelda realise that they must work together to rebuild Hyrule.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a masterpiece of open-world game design. It features a vast and beautiful world to explore, a deep and rewarding combat system, and a wide variety of puzzles and challenges to solve.

    The game's story is simple but effective, and the characters are well-developed and likeable. The game also features a number of side quests and optional activities, so there is always something to do.

    However, the game is not without its flaws. The weapon durability system can be frustrating at times, and the game can be quite challenging, especially in the early hours.

    Overall, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an essential game for any Nintendo Switch owner. It is a truly special experience that will stay with you long after you finish playing.

    Is one of the best rpg open world game ever done. The story is well written, the combat system is nice and the graphics is ok for nintendo switch. The only problem is playing it after the end of the main story, it would have been nice to see the consequences of what you did instead of loading the game just before the final battle.

    MASTAPIECE!
    It's so fun to explore the large open world of Hyrule.
    The combat is very fun because of so many ways to approach a battle.
    The low durability of weapons always keeps you on your toes.
    The bosses are a little bit lackluster but they aren't the focus.
    • Detailed open world that's fun to explore

    A really good game, I played about 200 hours (DLC included) and I still didn't finish the game (I mean, I don't have all the upgrades etc). The game is also really nice graphics-wise, it is not that beautiful compared to other games but the art-style is nice. Anyways, buy it if you can, if you're searching for a good adventure and complete game, go. A must-have on Nintendo Switch!
    • Large World
    • Progressive Difficulty
    • A lot to discover
    • A lot of sub-quests or things to find (clothes, koroks...)
    • Story not that good (except with the DLC)
    • Final boss is really easy
    • Not really a Zelda game, more focused on the adventure

    A nice open world experience with lots of stuff to explore. It always amazes me that there are so much items, that have different stats and buffs. Th physics in the game are also awesome (for a zelda), if you go in the snow with a fire weapon equiped you wont get the freeze effect.
    • teleport over the whole map
    • dlcs add plenty of stuff
    • long loading screen
