Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Zelda Breath of the Wild is overrated.

I bought a Switch Lite about a month ago. A major reason was to play BotW and I just finished it the other day. I can't believe this game has a metascore of 97!

Exploring can be a chore, the world can feel empty, random enemies in the world can be more difficult than actual boss battles and doing shrines can be frustrating but very necessary to progress.

With all that said... the game is maybe a 95, perhaps a 96. Its also one of the most satisfying gaming experiences I ever had... but its not a 97!

Only thing I disliked about the game was that it wasn't a full fat 1080P at a minimum with a 60fps framerate... And allot of the texturing was clearly low resolution, but that's Nintendo's antiquated hardware holding things back.

Keen for the sequel, hopefully it's more of a looker.

I agree, game whas great put in 130hours.
After beating the game i felt bored pretty soon after.

A big 9 for me.

Lets hope the new one has a lot more content.
Actually dungeons.
A lot more Gear.
More interesting quest and real rewards
Weapons that dont break every 10min.
More enemies?

This thread was made over a 1-2 point meta score disagreement lol



Now this is the type of shit I come to Vgchartz for. This thread is amazing, one of the best threads on here. It's definitely a 95, maybe a 96. Anyone who gave it a 97 is whack af



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I agree. In the annual greatest game event BOTW only hit rank #12 for me this year. So there are about ten games that are better for me personally.
