- I'm a massive Zelda fan and was introduced to it via the original NES version. I was disappointed in the music with this one - Zelda always had a catchy soundtrack and although the music is good in BOTW, there is not enough of it. The divine beasts are interesting but not enough to be different and the shrines are ok, but doesn't beat a good dungeon.
Essentially this game is a tech demo for what is to come - you now have all the assets you need to make an amazing game going forward, the interaction with the environment is amazing and I can only dream of the dungeons sequels may have - The DLC looks ok, but I'm disappointed that to play as certain favourite characters I need to buy amiibos that I might not be able to get anymore without mortgaging my house.
Regardless of criticism, this is one of the biggest system sellers I've seen for any console and I wish Nintendo all the best going forward.
