Hello friends, welcome back, today we will be doing a review of the Nintendo Switch game Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  This game is an open world game and you do whatever you want including defeating the six main bosses.  My favorite thing to do in Zelda is shield surfing in the snow.  This is an epic game because there are 120 shrines you can visit each of which gives you an orb that you can exchange for additional hearts or add to your stamina wheel.  Once you have obtained 13 hearts you can pull the master sword out of the ground which gives you the most powerful weapon in the game.  In the game you can collect food and make recipes in a pot over a fire, which you can eat to restore hearts.  There are at least seven different types of climates in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, woods, volcanos, snowy mountains, desert, water kingdom, rainforest, and grasslands.  There are several ways to get around in BOTW, you can simply walk, ride a horse, hand glide from high locations, or for fast travel you can warp to any Shrine, Devine Beast, or Region Tower in the game.  One cool feature of the game is you can buy a house and upgrade it by buying furniture and a bed, and hooks to put the weapons you can’t carry all the time.  There are all kinds of bad guys in this game, the most common one is the Moblin, which is a small pig that walks on two legs.  There are hundreds of side quest throughout the game too, and they are the perfect activity to do once you have defeated the final boss Gannon.   Many gamers consider Zelda: Breath of the Wild the greatest video game ever created, and we agree.  This game will fill your days with hours of exciting battles, and mind scratching puzzles, so don’t miss out on this amazing game!
