The Mirror reporter Ryan Brown recently got to try out “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” for the Nindento Wii U. In his review of his hour of hands-on experience, Brown expressed how this newest installment in the Zelda franchise is poised to be the most astonishing achievement since “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.”
The main thing that knocked Brown’s socks off was the the size of this open world experience. The map is reportedly 12 times larger than “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.”
Although there will still be old staples like Ganon and rupees, there are some notable changes in this new game. For example, gamers will not find floating hearts in this new installment. Instead they will have to seek out things like apples and meats to replenish health. Also, all the weapons are more durable and have to be changed more often.
Gamers will be able to change up combat by pushing boulders or cutting down trees over enemies. The environment plays a much more interactive role in this game.
Some special treats in this game include 100 “shrines” that gamers can explore. For anyone who likes the dungeon puzzles Zelda is so well known for, these side-missions will provide hours of amusement.
Overall, Brown’s reaction piece to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” is not just positive, but positively ecstatic. This highly anticipated game is slated to be released in March of 2017.
