I know this may seem unpopular but I did not love this game as much as others do. Yes it is a good game and I understand why people like it but after trying countless times I simply cannot get into it.
I'll start with the good. The game looks and sounds phenomenal. Outside of some minor slowdowns the game looks and feels great. Enemies look cool, and that initial moment after leaving the plateau is incredible. Gliding, climbing, the sheikah slate abilities all feel great. The core of the game is solid. I know a lot of people complain about weapons breaking but the game supplies you with enough for that to be a minor inconvenience not a major setback.
However, the game play loop falls flat for me. Shrines feel spread thin, the story is all but non existent, and it doesn't do anything for me after that initial wow to pull me in. The world looks beautiful but I don't have enough urge to explore it. The first 10 hours are great, finding a horse, taking out some camps, taking on your first divine beast and experiencing each of the firsts in this game feel great but outside of that I am left with what feels like a shallow open world.
Each of those firsts I mention are all the firsts you're going to do. The game I feel doesn't do enough to push me further, to want to save hyrule, to want to do all the shrines, instead I feel like I am left wandering. Games like skyrim and witcher are applauded because their open worlds feel alive, there's varied content and people living their lives and that just does not happen in this game.
I sincerely hope that breath of the wild 2 buffs up this open world and story and gives us more varied content to explore. This is a solid foundation for a great game but for now it just feels OK.
