Zelda Breath Of The Wild Receives First Review

Well the news we have all been waiting for is finally here and thankfully it’s good news!

The first review for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is in from the magazine EDGE. They have only reviewed one game for the Switch so far but it is the one we all were waiting for!

We as gamers have been pretty spoilt this week and the ratings from EDGE show this!

Zelda Breath Of The Wild scored 10/10

Horizon Zero Dawn 9/10

Nioh 9/10

If you have both a Nintendo Switch and PS4 you will be sorted for game choice for a little while.

Magazine EDGE hasn’t given full details on the review but did test both the Wii U and Switch versions of Zelda so we will bring you specifics once we get them.

Edge reported that:


The game is very dense
You’ll freeroam around and get distracted by dozens of different things “an absolute, and unremitting pleasure to get lost in”
Over 100 shrines and they are multi purpose
The world feels well realised despite game like speed potions
Four beasts must be exorcised, with a couple sub missions a final dungeon and a boss fight for each
20 hours of game play if you focus on the main quest
after playing 4 shrines you will have all the tools you need (within opening hour)
Defeating beasts will net you RPG like stat boosts and a new power with a big cool down that breaks the game in ways they wouldn’t spoil
Frame rate is a little uneven on the Wii U version, dropping to teens in very busy sequences like heavy weather effects, rarely when it matters
Nuts and bolts combat is a little unpredictable at times but that encourages you to the many other tools and powers at your disposal

Edge also went on to say:

“The result, for all the longevity of its series and the familiarity of the open world genre, is a game that evokes feelings we haven’t felt for 20 years. Not since Ocarina of Time have we set foot in a world that feels so mind-mindbogglingly vast and unerringly magical, that proves so relentlessly intriguing. Plenty of games promise to let us go anywhere and do anything. Few, if any, ever deliver so irresistibly. 19 years on Ocarina is still held up as the high water mark of gaming’s best loved and greatest series. Now it may have to settle for second place”.

Thank you EDGE for bringing us all the news that everyone was hoping for.

Roll on Friday when we can all get our hands on Nintendo’s latest hardware and get playing what would seem the new classic for years to come!! Check back Friday for Nintendo Switch unboxing video, initial thoughts and review.

Well done Nintendo for giving the Switch the best start it could have hoped for!
