What's the game about?
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the second installment of the popular action-adventure game series, launched in 1986. In this game, we once again play as Link, the protagonist of the series, who, after 100 years, wakes up in a cave and meets a mysterious man. He tells him about the threat and orders the hero to defeat Ganon, the series' antagonist, and thus save the entire world.
What can you do for so many hours in a game?
That question could be answered for a very long time. Suffice to say, however, that practically from the very beginning we can go wherever we like, and there are so many side activities and other options, that even after a few dozen hours of playing on our own, you will not discover them all. Nothing prevents you from quickly completing the main plot, but really it's just a waste of what the huge game world offers.
We have a lot of fantastically designed locations where there is always something interesting waiting for us. Whether it's new opponents, logical puzzles, treasures, or just optional quests. The game also features engaging secrets and thoughtful RPG elements. The biggest fun is simply the fact that this production doesn't impose anything from above. The creators throw the player into a giant sandbox and leave him alone. It is entirely up to us what activities we complete and how much time we spend on it.
How was the game received?
Metacritic declared Zelda the best Switch exclusive of 2017, and not much has changed since then. In fact, only the sequel subtitled Tears of the Kingdom can compete with it. This installment was very well received by the players. It's definitely a breakthrough for sandbox games, which unfortunately only the lucky ones who own a Nintendo Switch (or Wii U) console can access.
