Having played a few of the well known Zelda games recently (like Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask), I was not sure how this game would stand amongst the classics. There are a lot of open world RPG games too these days, making me sceptical on how this will turn out.
After sinking some good long hours into it, I can say that I am a big fan. Everything from the gameplay, graphics and story are all refined, in ways like the classic Zelda games were. Nintendo have done such a good job, and it is genuinely fun. It is simple to pick up, but has layers and layers of complexity that is revealed by playing through puzzles or experimenting yourself.
Also, this game is quite long. You won't get bored or have to put it down anytime soon.
