In the new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you breathe new life into the game by exploring the game world on your own terms. In fact, you might not want to finish the whole game, not because you are incapable of doing so, but because really might not want it to end so soon. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BOTW) is almost the same as its predecessor as an adventure role-playing game, but now, the new one does not provide you with a singular line of passage of play. Of course, like its predecessors, you still get to play with the main hero link. And of course, your main quest is still to rescue Princess Zelda and defeat the game’s prime evil Ganon.
But in the new BOTW, you get to explore the game world on your own terms. At your own discretion, choices, and approaches, you can take quests, tackle situations, or solve a puzzle. In short, you play the game at your own pace. Okay, now for the serious reviews. For the graphics, it’s still the same Zelda with its cartoonish and anime-aesthetic look, which means it’s still absolutely gorgeous. The music and audio effects are just as great and stupendous, perhaps even better than before. The most important factor is that the game world is totally interactive, as in totally. Yes, please do climb that mountain, provided you don’t run out breath or you don’t slip and fall because it’s slippery from all that rain. You can pluck an apple from a tree, or just cut down the tree to get at all the apples.
For the beginners, they could be a bit confused at first at how start things off. But have no fear because the starting area will provide a fair amount of training before you venture off on your own out there. Aside from attempting to complete the main and side quests, you may find yourself visiting shrines and solving puzzles inside to get enough Spirit Orbs to increase your stamina and health. Clue: There is no single way of solving puzzles, so have fun.

There is always the usual array of swords, shields, and bows, and you also get to use runes that allow you to use magic. You can create an IED bomb (no, not the terrorist type), create an ice pillar, or even stop time for a while. Even in battles you’ll find multiple ways to engage the enemy. For example, if you see you’re outnumbered, you can always plant your IED and shoot a fire arrow at it, or sneak quietly into their camp and steal their weapons to make killing them later much easier. During your journey you can take time to do other things like talking to peasants, chase a chicken, tame and ride a horse, pick mushrooms, hunt a boar and cook up a dish for extra health boost, stealth, or cold resistance.
