    Breath of the Wild is an exciting game for its incredible landscapes and how, with minimum instruction, you're allowed to find your footing as you go. Rather than wade through prolonged tutorials like you did at the start of Wii's Skyward Sword, you pick up new tricks and take to heart new lessons by way of action and exploration.

    Yes, the characters are possessed of that Zelda charm, and there are plenty of them.

    Since my first five hours were all about exploring, my favorite thing was how unique and varied every region is. I’m a natural explorer in video games – I remember scaling high mountains in World of Warcraft and sneaking into high level zones, and exploring in Breath of the Wild brought back that same feeling. Every new place I went to had new beautiful vistas, and a good mix of serenity and danger. One moment you’re strolling through a quiet mountain trail admiring the wildlife, the next moment your weapon and shield light on fire and you burst into flames from being in a place that’s too hot to handle.

    Hyrule is startlingly vertical in this incarnation and you're always looking at high places and wondering, "How can I get there?" Nintendo rewards you for your wanderlust with something for your effort in most cases.
