Open your eyes
No kingdom. No memories. After a 100-year slumber, Link wakes up alone in a world he no longer remembers. Now the legendary hero must explore a vast and dangerous land and regain his memories before Hyrule is lost forever.
Armed only with what he can scavenge, Link sets out to find answers and the resources needed to survive.
Discover the vast world around you
Explore the landscape of Hyrule any way you like. Climb up towers and mountain peaks in search of new destinations, then set your own path and plunge into the wilderness.
Fight for your kingdom
When Link first wakes up, he’s unarmed and defenseless. Relying on his wits and resourcefulness, though, he can acquire many different weapons to use in combat. However, these items will wear out over time, so he must always be on the lookout for more.
Dress for success
Link can wear some pretty stylish outfits, but different clothes can also help shelter him from the elements or deflect enemy fire. You can find all kinds of clothes for Link, from snow gear to armour, but be careful – if you wear metal during a storm, you may be in for a shock!

Specification: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [Game]
Though I’m a kid at heart, I actually started playing home video games with Pong in the 1970s. Then it was an Atari 2600, then a TI 99 4/A, a Commodore 64, a home computer, a Nintendo, and on and on, right up through the PS4 (no 5 yet, I went a different direction and got a Switch).I start with that, because I’ve played thousands of video games over the span of my lifetime. There have been a lot of good ones. Space Invaders, Centipede, Q*Bert, Pac-Man, up through Adventure, Pitfall, Donkey Kong (also the first Nintendo console game) … fast-forward to games (not necessarily in chronological order) like Wizardry, EverQuest, Dragon Age, Grand Theft Auto V, Diablo II, Baldur’s Gate, all the Elder Scrolls games, the Witcher 3. Everything from Dragon’s Lair to FTL to Hades. Wasteland, Fallout, X-Com, Cyberpunk 2077. You get the drift.And I gotta say, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WIld might JUST be the greatest video game ever made. It just fires on all cylinders. It would be easy to say this game is overrated, and there are actually a handful of people who believe just that – but it’s not. It’s rated exactly right. More “10” ratings on official video game publications than any game in history.That’s probably all you need to know. The game is fun. Its systems work perfectly, there’s plenty of room for ingenuity in approaching situations. Combat, exploration, storytelling – it’s all done right. A world that rivals or exceeds anything Bethesda or CD Projekt Red has ever created. Whether you’ve played every Zelda game up to this point or are a newcomer to the series, once you’ve figured out the controls and what you’re supposed to be doing – you’ll get lost in this world for many, many, many hours. This is what gaming is all about.

What can I add about this game that others haven’t already said. Simply put, this is the most fun I’ve ever had playing a video game. There is just so much to do. New areas to explore, fun puzzles to solve and interesting story lines to follow. I never got bored or felt the game was repetitive. It is just incredible. The world is so vast and full of interesting things to do. Everything about this game is great, I have nothing negative to say. If you are looking for a game that is family-friendly and hours of wholesome fun, look no further. Just get this game!
