You may have heard that Nintendo has a new Legend of Zelda game out. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is by far one of the most amazing open world games I have ever played, and you should buy Breath of the Wild on the Wii U. Yes, you read that right. Don’t get me wrong, Nintendo’s new Switch console looks fantastic and plays great, but honestly who wants to wait in lines or search countless GameStops to try to find one for a system that has only one game worth playing right now. If you already have a Wii U. Stop wasting time. You should buy Breath of the Wild on Wii U and start playing it now!
Breath of the Wild takes open world games to the next level. Some games call themselves “open world” but end up disappointing when you find out that you really cannot go anywhere you want and movement is limited. In Breath of the Wild you can quite literally go anywhere in the game and do just about anything you want. If you want to spend 24 hours climbing mountains, you can do that. If you want to sneak into the castle and fight Ganon with a tree branch before you even have a full set of clothes, you can do that too. You will die, but you can do it. If you need a tree branch so that you can die fighting Ganon, you can become “Link the lumberjack” and chop down trees and make fire wood until you can’t stand to see another bundle. Want to be like Chef Ramsey? You can do that too. You can cook almost any food, critters or plants you come across. Breath of the Wild is as big or small as you want it to be. There is no specific order you have to complete quests, in fact you really don’t have to complete many at all to beat the game. You could rush through the game in as little as a couple hours if you are good, or you can do what I did and spend almost a month exploring everything the game has to offer before conquering it. Now is the point where you should stop reading this and you should buy Breath of the Wild on Wii U. You will not regret it, unless you hate good video games. The graphics in the game are just stunning. Nintendo put a lot of time into making this one of the most beauty filled games in their catalog. There are a couple differences between this game and previous Zelda releases. Swords, Bows and Shields have durability limits and will break after using them to long; however, new and better ones are in great supply. There were very few times where I was in a tight spot and had to go searching for weapons. The puzzles in this game are some of the most well thought out and implemented. Not too hard for young kids, yet hard enough to keep a dedicated gamer entertained without losing interest. This game is so good, that I even had fun watching someone else play it for hours. There is plenty of story in the game for those that like that. It takes a long time to follow the entire new storyline, so there is no risk of running out of story before you have finished the game, as happens often in other open wold games. I can’t say enough about this game. There was absolutely nothing that I did not like in the game. It’s release was delayed a couple times, but was well worth the wait. It plays extremely well on the Wii U and it also has a high re-play value. Some games you play once and never play again. With Breath of the Wild, I keep finding myself and others in my household drawn back to it. You will almost certainly find something new each time that you did not find before. I highly recommend picking this Nintendo title up. Are you really still reading this? I will end it here so you can stop reading and get to buying and playing.
