    Got it on release and after 65h I've stopped playing, completed the main stuff. I wish to start all over again but holding off till the DLC; but now that's summer I will postpone it to Fall/Winter. Hopefully the DLC's turns out to be worth it.

    I usually just pop in for half an hour or so a day when I'm tired and just want to sit on the couch and play something relaxing. It's hard to play over long periods of time I find but exploration in short bursts feels great.

    Did I write here already? Oh well guess i can just say more. Stopped playing within the month i got it, March 3 2017, dunno how long i played or where i last was.... Wait i remember, I was supposed to go to death mountain but it was too hot so i bought potions from a lady and i forgot the rest. So far haven't touched it since, and I think i played it less than a week. been busy with blaster master zero, azure striker gunvolt and Shovel Knight. :P

    I'm currently playing it on my friend's device and it's nice. Sometimes I feel "meh" about playing it and other days I'm like "oh man this game is so fun!" I bought Witcher 3 and Skyrim when they first came out and I still play it to this day. Not everyday lol I haven't touched Skyrim for months now but the last time I played, I was obsessed with this one mod 'DLC'. It's better on PC because of mods p: It's something you walk away from, forget about, and then remember that you have that game in your library which makes you get back into it.

    I started playing again recently after hearing some good news that the DLC content is useful to making the game easier. Still deciding if i wanna spend that $20 on it though. Managed to get all four of the sacred beast currently and now ready to fight ganon... when I stop being scared of that nasty stuff inside the castle :ninja:

    I got the dlc wether I liked it or not, there was a bundle with the switch, a zelda carrying case, zelda, the dlc pack, and it was all that was available, which I snatched up the last one online just in time, these dam things are hard to find

    I didn't have trouble finding one since I pre ordered it from best buy when it was available. Though I guess I need a case for itcan, and screen protection. I didn't really buy it for this game, I bought it for Xenoblade chronicles 2 and Super Mario Odyssey, blaster master zero, and other games I wanted. But since I didn't know what game to get with it, I picked at least one game so i would least be able to play the game since it can't do any other thing but play games.

    I don't think is a bad game but is not the best either, It reminds me of the first two zelda games on nes which I always hated for lack of information for a game with too many secrets and not enough sense of direction... and difficulty. In zelda 1 you can explore many places without much sense of direction or being told not to go there or much restriction. In zelda 2, you can jump (So that makes zelda breath of the wild the second game to have natural jumping abilities) That isn't restricted to a Roc's feather or Running off a ledge. The game was also frustrating and hard and once again getting lost is just common. I least can say I would rather play this game before i try the two zelda games on NES again. It seem like the original idea of the two games made better with this one. :)

    Not too much these days but the new DLC has given me a reason to. :)

    I've yet to finish the Medium and Hard stages. It gets easier once you know how to go about it.

    I was looking into playing again, until I found out the DLC are hidden in chest throughout the game. Not cool Nintendo. It has made me fill a complaint with Nintendo. I have done enough exploring of the relatively empty map. Now that the wonder of the Zelda change-up as worn off, I have revisited my score for the game. I give it a 4 out of 10. It doesn't deserve a score higher then that.

    ...empty?


    Well alrighty then. Franky I found that the Korok mask showed me things that I didn't even realize were Korok puzzles in the first place, such as throwing rocks into a ring in the water.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I don't have Switch and this game but I am huge fan of Zelda games. IF I am to play this game or any games.. I usually play at least 2 hours in the morning and and other 2 hours more at nighttime. That's limit for my activity. Reason: I rather to enjoying life, family, outgoing, nature and friends.

    I have done around 100 shrines. Close to the end I got really bored with it. When I first started playing there was so much to do new things to discover.
    Now I'm running around with not much to find. Collecting things isn't as fun as when I first started. I barely even heal with foods. I have so much stock piled. Same with weapons I only use a few. Shields hardly ever break on me.

    Gba temp keeps on automatically resizing my comments to a smaller size, like what you see at the top paragraph. Their is a problem with the reply section.

    I didn't like it very much. 6/10. Beat it, but it was meh. I don't see how people like it so much.

    I would rate it higher like a 9/10.
    I thought the english acting was bad which knocked it down a few for me. Game design I felt could use some improvements.

    I want them to basically majoras mask this game and use this games assets and the things they had in this game, but also add traditional big dungeons.
    (its doing that resizing thing again.)

    How much did you complete. Did you do all the divine beasts and do a good chunk of the shrines.
