It's a new story that gets you thinking, with lots of puzzles and lots of great story moments.
This game has to be, by far, the best game I have ever played. I bought the Switch because I wanted to play this game though was somewhat sceptical if the cost would be worth it. I haven't had as much fun in a video game as I have with this one before. I'm aware that a lot of people who are classic LoZ fans aren't happy with this game given they claim it's "not a LoZ game" though for the most part I have to disagree.
The base of the puzzle dungeon aspect is still there. Just because the puzzles are split out across over 100 instances doesn't mean that the feature is gone and for me it's the puzzle dungeons that make the LoZ franchise. The puzzles being split into so many smaller little "trails" as they are called is, to me, a really great idea. They all teach you a way to use your equipment which is useful for later trails or for the main story quest. In addition to this, you've got a massively expansive world with a great variation of terrain (each example of which brings its own hazards in enemies and how the environment affects you such as snowy mountains being dangerously cold) as well as a great combat system where you can either get by just attacking when you can or you can really learn how it works which is rewarding once you get it down. There's also the food system where you can hunt or forage for ingredients and then cook them to create various dishes which provide health as well as many different buffs depending on what you cook (for example you can cook a meat skewer with meat you hunt for which gives a good amount of health, then you can create a similar dish but with stamina-restoring properties if you add another ingredient which restores stamina when cooked to make a healing item that also restores stamina and so on). In addition to the cooking you can also brew potions witcher-style using monster drops and various herbs found in the world so you can get more effective or longer lasting buffs without the health boosts.
The open-world potential of this game really impressed me. Not only through how you can just ignore the main story quest and go off to do whatever you want while still having a load of fun, but there's so many small details that make this game so special. You can climb every tree, every mountain and just about everything else that is obviously not supposed to be climbed on (though the list of things you can't climb is very short). You can fell trees with an axe, cut the log into firewood, pile the wood up and then set fire to it using any source of fire you may have (flint, lit torch, lightning strike, the list goes on) and then use this fire either as a means to keep yourself warm in a cold wilderness/at night, to open-roast food to cook it quickly and to skip time by resting beside it. Every item of clothing does something different (basic clothes, armour, cold-resistance, heat-resistance and so on).
The story of the game may not be for everyone due to the style it was written (minor spoiler--- it's written in the retrospective, learn about the past as you play kind of way---end spoiler) though I really like it, you're not forced into playing through the main story quests and all there's so much additional lore to search out. You don't get a "hand-holding" experience with the story, quest markers on your map aren't necessarily pointing to the solution and you usually have to do some asking around or pathfinding in the area that you're pointed to in order to work out what you need to do.
Overall- this game is worth buying a Switch for alone, anyone who enjoys puzzles, exploration, combat, little features which let you play the way you want to play- this is the game for you!
- Most amazing graphics.
- Massive map which feels hand crafted not procedurally generated.
- Wherever you look, there is detail and depth to the gameplay
- Fun combat system.
- Huge variety of enemies to fight and NPCs to interact with.
- Well thought out puzzles to crack.
The number of times I've just stopped to stare at the view.
As with all open world games the range of things to occupy your time is massive and varied but in this game things of particular note for me:
Tthe way the difficulty is so well done. Boss fights are stiff and need a bit of forethought but are then very doable - I haven't been frustrated once, although I've been daunted 100times! Flying is a joy, cooking is fun and the fighting is so varied and the breakable weapons mean you have to keep it moving. This balance is never quite right but they've cracked it with this game.
Small things that make the world more believable are beautifully done - sheltering in a cave as a storm rages only for a tree to be felled by lightning just outside ...just a wonderful world.
Then there's the hundreds of puzzles that are woven in to the game. Varying from a simple bit of fun to real day-long head-scratchers for the family. And this indeed is how everyone becomes involved; before you know it how to complete the latest Shrine puzzle is the topic at breakfast and everyone has fun working it out and then completing it.
I love the bow and how you have to allow for drop at range - a very satisfying weapon.
The paraglider is a masterpiece - everyone should have one
I just can't say enough. Certainly a classic in the making and deserving of all the praise being piled on to it, this game is one of the most accessible and memorable games ever made on any platform.
Edit/Update: still playing, appears my nine year old loves this game even more than I do. Together we've explored, solved puzzles and defeated bosses. Probably the best game I've ever played.
