    It is a VERY unbalanced game. In the beginning you are a powerless turd with weapons made of butter, then suddenly once you get the master sword you fire lightning from your ass. Literally, until the master sword i have been avoiding battles and mobs because i was easy to kill and once i got that i was grinding guardians. The most epicly unbalanced game in the universe for sure. I second the notion for NO BOTW2 please. If i wanted an open world bonanza mashup, thank god, there are 100000 titles out there. Everybody and their nan are doing 100+ hour open world games now.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Fresh? 95% of everything in the game is a direct copy-paste from other open world games of the last 10 years. The only thing it did better (and it did great!) was weather/climate and how it affects gameplay and access to areas. Absolutely everything else was done (to death) before. Some people might not have played Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, LOTR, Dying Light so thought all of these things are 'new' when in fact they are not.

    Which in a way, is not bad, its just Nintendo trying to catch up, but if you have played a few of them already, it's less fresh than it seems.

    Just my 0,02 obviously, i still enjoyed the game after a certain point, there are great stuff in it here and there, but as mechanics go, i did not feel for a moment (apart from the weather stuff) there was anything fresh in there.

    Unless they use it as a base to expand and make an even better game out of the engine now that its development is done... That would be interesting but i would be eager to find out if the stamina or weapon breaking is back...

    What XB games have you been playing? The one on Switch is way better than the one on Wii and Wii U, in my opinion.

    People debating if BotW is good or not is about as original, exciting, and compelling as BotW itself.

    He's delusional, the Wii U was the weakest one IMO, the Switch iteration is everything it should've been.

    yeah i gave up mid xenoblade chronicles X the random exploration and such just felt weird and the story took ages to move due to mandatory exploration and such to get story missions.

    It was the garbage soundtrack that turned the game off for me, the Switch version has a much more cohesive and consistent style.

    That's kind of a wierd comment, lol. That's like saying, people talking about things they like is as original as BotW itself. So don't talk about things you like because it's not original. People talk about things they like and hate all the time. Be unique and don't talk at all. Talking about stuff is not original.

    I think real Zelda fans can agree, all breath of the wild had going for it was visuals, was a good looking game but a horrible Zelda. Zelda is supposed to be dungeons and puzzles, not a bunch of shrines that do not advance the game/story forward.

    More Dungeons
    More Durability
    More Bosses/Enemy types
    More Swimming/Underwater
    More Zelda booty!!
    More Music
    More Hookshot

    Less Shrines!

    BOTW wasn't a bad game by any means but it was definitely missing some Zelda staples.

    Your post is not factual,

    TP had a water dungeon
    TP had a hookshot
    Majoras Mask only had four dungeons

    Majoras Mask dungeons were also significantly harder than BotW

    Is it bad that I think Zelda II the Adventure of Link is one of the best Zelda game?

    Does the BS Zelda allows you to play as Zelda?
    I think it does.

    Pause game then press up and A at the same time on controller 2.
    The above is applicable for the original NES Zelda II game. Never played the virtual console counterpart.

    Meh, I just wish for a more traditional Zelda game.
    A giant open world game to me is only interesting if it's also packed to the brim with content, which would require a much larger development team, a higher budget, a longer development cycle and would probably cost way more for the consumer.
    None of these things are going to happen, so you're just gonna get a tiny overworld that is stretched out across a giant map with Korok Seeds or other useless collectables to justify the scale.
    All it really does is add more unnecessary traveling time and make the player nervous all the time because they're worried they're missing stuff.
    Nintendo x Platinum Games - Project Zelda when?

    Something that has nothing to do with what you said. But Megumi had one of the most gruesome death scenes in anime ever
