An Epic Game
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 November 2020
Now I wasn't sure if I would like this game, thinking it was just going to be a hack and slash, kill all enemies in sight kind of deal...but I have never been more wrong!!!
This game follows the time before Breath Of the Wild when the Calamity was on the brink of starting, where Zelda and Link have to recruit the Four Champions to pilot their respective Divine Beasts. It has so much story to it, it's unreal.
I love absolutely everything about it, from the map screen that lets you see all the side quests (and I'm not that far in and there is already LOADS of these) that is Breath of The Wild's map, to the playable characters and the lovely cutscenes you get which tell you more about the relationships between characters that you only got a hint of in the memories in Breath of the Wild.
Now I actually haven't completed Breath of the Wild yet, because I wanted to play this one first, but I think you can do it either way.
The gameplay is fast, frenetic and totally addictive, the characters are all worth playing as (Impa is a ninja both literally and in her gameplay style, she basically decimates all in her path; as does Revali, and Link and....ok yeah, all the characters I've played as decimate the field...bar Daruk, because he's a bit slow....sorry Daruk fans!!) and it's a truly magnificent thing to be able to see Hyrule as it was before the Calamity struck.
An absolute must for Zelda fans. Would give it more than five stars if I could! :D
