I really appreciate these detailed thoughts on the game. Thanks for sharing your perspective. Also, I'm glad to see another fan who wanted some kind of simulation gameplay related to the reconstruction of Hyrule. I've long been a champion of a BotW spin-off in the style of Little King's Story :)

For me, Tears of the Kingdom is one of the best games of this generation, and among the finest Zelda games. I definitely agree that the reused overworld creates issues, despite Nintendo's valiant attempts to redefine it. I was actually happy with the diversity of enemies, not to mention how hard-hitting many were. This game doesn't pull its punches, that's for sure.

For me, TotK isn't a perfect game, but its good stuff is so phenomenally great that its flaws feel insignificant in comparison.

Yes, yes, I totally agree with you. I hope that me focusing in the "lows" of the game doesn't make it sound as if I think it is a bad game. I'm actually enjoying it a lot, and have had a blast with many of it's new proposals (specially The Depths and the cave systems, but also the path to the actual Temples). I also really enyojed suffering the hard hitting enemies in the first dozen of hours... They put a good challenge and forced me to prepare myself better for any encounter, rather to blindly go into battles. I think too that, as with BotW (which I personally like most, for the sense of novelty and wonder it had) the flaws don't overshadow (in fact, usuall get overshadowed by) the way more abundant, excellent highs  =)
