Title
GOTY
God DAMNNNN this shit is fun.

An improved weapon system, way more shit to do, a more engaging story, and the same if not more care for detail in the map/level design compared to botw is truly an accomplishment. Is almost unbelievable that this game makes its predecessor feel like a beta test, taking all the old systems, mixing them with new ideas, and cranking everything up to 11, which would have seemed inconceivable just a few months ago. Botw is one of my favorite games of all time, but I have to admit that this is an improved game in nearly every measurable way, while not feeling like it's rereading the same beats. I wish dearly that this game and the devs who made it were given an opportunity to create on hardware that was up to par with modern standards, and it is honestly impressive what they were able to do considering the physical limitations of the Switch (I'm looking at you Pokemon Scarlet/Violet).

All things considered, this is one of the most joyus experiences you can have in gaming, and I urge anyone with a switch or pc to give it a try.

Title
Really Really Great But Could be Way Better
I can't lie and say this is worse than BOTW, but something about it loses me a little bit. Reviewing TOTK without comparing it to its predecesor is practically impossible so I'm not going to try to do that. Almost in all fronts do I think this game is an improvement and yet it just doesnt stick as well.

I almost feel as if at any given point there are far too many options and the game suffers from that. Also I dont understand the refusal to include master mode/the master cycle and NOT have DLC for this game. It's honestly a crime. But besides all of that my biggest problem with the game is it could have been so much more. BOTW is a complete package. After hundreds of hours with that game the world still feels as fully fleshed out as it was before. With TOTK it feels like they could have done SO much more. The fact that the starting area is the largest grouping of sky islands in the game is honestly beyond dissapointing. The depths, while being an incredible concept, start to become a slog after exploring just a bit. The dungeons peak after the wind temple, and the sages feel so fundamentally flawed.

With all of that being said however, ultrahand and fuse are two of the most fun game mechanics i've ever had the pleasure of playing with. It feels like Gmod but zelda and something about that is incredible to me. The music and graphics are both beautiful and in some moments I would say it reaches higher highs than BOTW. (Specifically literally all of ganondorf, and the climb up to the wind temple).

This game really is something special though. If you like BOTW for the freedom it provides you, you'll love this game. But I can understand with everyone saying something about it just doesnt capture the same magic. Still as a Zelda fan and a Gmod fan, I can't reccomend it enough.

They took a 9/10 game and stapled a bunch of garbage to it. It's just like playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [ゼルダの伝説 ブレス オブ ザ ワイルド] again, except now you have to deal with garbage new enemy types and an absolutely dreadful item fusing system. Yes, let's make a game about manipulating objects in a 3D space and then only allow you to move those objects in two dimensions. You can adjust the pitch and yaw, but you can't roll an object? Ridiculous.
What's more, most of the time, you get better results not building a contraption. It's legitimately quicker to just move an object manually rather than to build a car to transport it.
Sometimes, the old BOTW charm seeps through, like with the newspaper quests or exploring the initial sky island. Shame about all the new mechanics.

Title
its a great sequel!
i love this game. the dungeons, bosses, etc etc. the graphics are beautiful and the puzzles are really fun!!
but it's not that clear what happened between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [ゼルダの伝説 ブレス オブ ザ ワイルド] and Tears of The Kingdom. we don't even know how many years it's been between the two games. and they just brush off most of the champions too. the shiekah(idk if i spelled that right) technology is basically gone and it's not clear what happened to it. its still a very good game! very fun.
i love the story too! i dunno if i can say anything about spoilers so i won't. :3 but it was really good and i loved all the characters!!

Title
The Legend of Gimmicks
I was one of the few players who did not have much of an issue with the map being reused from Breath of the Wold. Breath of the Wild's job was to deliver a beautiful world, and Tears of the Kingdom's job was to fill it. The way the developers went about filling this game was repetitive koroks and sign builders, fetch quests, escort missions, and hours of grinding to collect rare materials to upgrade armour sets that were already collected in BOTW, all the while forcing the player to use a buggy and unpolished building mechanic at every opportunity. The Ultrahajlnd ability, while a neat concept that enriches exploration and problem solving, is used in such abundance in the game that it has effectively engulfed the experience. The original joy from being able to build whatever contraption I wanted was almost instantly sucked away from me because I was forced to build contraptions that conformed to the vast majority of puzzles in the game. Many of the shrines involved an Ultrahand puzzle. All of the dungeons were filled to the brim with Ultrahand puzzles. Most of the sky islands I explored involved a challenge of transporting a stone to a shrine pedestal, which entailed building a machine to fly the stone with the very limited zonai devices I had. It seems the developers spent so much time creating this mechanic that they needed to inundate every single puzzle in the game with it to make it worth while. The runes in BOTW were so limited in comparison that it forced the player to think creatively about how to solve a puzzle with their limited toolset. Here the player basically has god mode and must fiddle with sticking and unsticking parts to solve puzzles. It becomes tedious and seriously puts a damper on a game that otherwise is a mostky enjoyable experience. Overall I enjoyed this game far less than BOTW.

    I think people are only giving this less than a 5 to be edgy at this point. I think people think it’s cool to dislike this game for some reason. I enjoyed the hell out of it. Put probably 300 hours in and finished up all shrines and the story and such. But I’m going back in and finishing the light roots and upgrading armor and just poking around. It is so fun. I can easily squeeze out 100 more hours

      this a good DLC and nothing more than that. I had fun playing the game but geez, let's be honest the feeling of discovery is almost minimum when you already have played BoW

      "But I’m going back in and finishing the light roots"

      Keep it up. Let me know if you find anything new or interesting after the first 40.

      Dryness aside, I don't see how anyone can be complacent with the obvious performance issues. Having all ghost buddies active at once makes the game unplayable which is f**king unacceptable.

    To any video game essayists in chat; unless you're very passionate/nostalgic/funny/have a sleepy bird voice or make interesting remarks not directly related to nitpicking the game, make sure your shitty unstructured videos are under 1 hour. Preferably shorter. Getting to the point of why this is weaker than the original could be summarized fairly quickly and vice verse (although you'd have to be VERY convincing).
