The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Shines in Early Reviews

Everyone is excited as Nintendo’s latest offering, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, garners exceptional reviews from leading gaming publications. This eagerly anticipated sequel to Breath of the Wild, one of the most influential titles of its generation, is already being hailed as a generation-defining game even before its official launch.

Tears of the Kingdom has amassed an impressive Metacritic score of 97 and OpenCritic score of 97. Renowned gaming platforms such as GameSpot and IGN have awarded the game a perfect score of 10/10, emphasizing its captivating storyline, the game-changing Ultrahand system, and the serene, discovery-rich open-world players can traverse.

Other top-tier reviewers were equally impressed. Video Games Chronicle (VGC) has given it a perfect score of 5/5, praising the innovative Ultrahand system as “joyous and genuinely game-changing.” Game Informer gave it an impressive score of 9.75/10, lauding the game’s ability to provide players with immense freedom in their gameplay approach. Even with minor UI issues and occasional boss fights, as noted by GamesRadar, the game’s overall experience was deemed “definitely worth the wait.”

Eurogamer, while noting a “slightly deadening emphasis on gathering resources,” found the game to be a “terrific Breath of the Wild follow-up” that introduced “brilliant new systems, amazing views, and more dungeon-type spaces.” Nintendo Life described the game as “a glorious, triumphant sequel to one of the best video games of all time,” while The Guardian praised the game’s ability to inject fun into adult life.

Many critics agreed that Tears of the Kingdom skillfully built upon the foundations laid by Breath of the Wild, adding innovative features and mechanics that breathe fresh life into the familiar environment of Hyrule. As VG247 aptly puts it, the game “feels different enough from its predecessor thanks to the new powers and mechanics to stand all on its own.”

From the reviews, it’s clear that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom not only lives up to the high expectations set by Breath of the Wild but also pushes the boundaries of what players can expect from a Zelda game. The title is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on May 12, and if the initial reviews are anything to go by, it’s a must-play for every gaming enthusiast.
