Really fun game. As the player, collect, buy,and collect tanks from different empires. Fight battles in many varied and exciting environments, from quiet towns in the desert, to snowy train stations in the mountains.

Play many different modes of battle as you climb the ranks and joing clubs to become a better player.

With stunning graphics and engaging gameplay, definitely a must have game dot those who enjoy battle games.

This game is really fun. With loads of areas that look different every game, and awesome items and powers, explore the bowels of a mysterious castle while fighting a wide variety of creative enemies. There are many different interactive environments for you to explore, as a semi- customizable character, while you collect cells to buy things to help you progress.

The more you play the better and longer each game becomes. The learning curve took me a few days of playing, or about 8 hours before I truly understood it, but it's so worth it once you get past it.

100% recommend.

This exciting prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes place in a Hyrule of the past, telling the story of the calamity 100 years before BOTW takes place.

The game focusses heavily on the fighting aspect seen in BOTW. With stunning graphics, bold new gameplay, and new characters to play as, fight your way in your favourite locations as you try to save Hyrule from its inevitable doom.

While the game is vastly different from BOTW, and the controls can take some time to get used to, this game is a great addition to your game arsenal.

Out of the thousands of driving games across all gaming platforms, I would rank this in the same tier as Forza Horizon 4 or grand tourismo.

This game is incredibly realistic. With three different views for the player to choose from, several modes of play, and hundreds of cars to collect, the player races to avoid police, win races, or catch criminals.

This games learning curve is extremely easy, even for amateurs like me. Definitely buy this game.

Excellent game. The remaster a newer Zelda game, one of the last before Breath of the Wild. Explore forests, volcanos and deserts, literally toe the line of reality, and collect magic items as you try to save Princess Zelda from various creative enemies.

The updated graphics of this remaster truly rekindle the players love of the older game. And it is great for new players who want to experience a more classic Zelda game on the Nintendo Switch.

Would recommend for old and new fans alike.

Imagine The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in ancient Greece. The player is a completely customizable character who must save their brother by battling fierce and creative enemies, unlocking new abilities, exploring the beautifully realistic world they find themself in,while helping the gods of Greek mythology.

The gameplay is interesting, the map packed with activities, yet spread out across the variety of biomes. And the graphics are incredibly realistic, even on a small screen.

Beautifully crafted, definitely recommend.

Possibly the most classic game of all time. Reviewing this is difficult as anything I say may seem like I am belittling it. This game has had millions of collective hours spent loving it, sending characters to save the world, or just build cool things. You are in control of a massive world, to do with what you want.

I don't have a single complaint about this game. The graphics, while blocky ( since that's the point! ) ,are vastly realistic, the gameplay mechanics are beautifully crafted, with every movement or action carefully crafted to the players benefit and enjoyment, and the story is whatever you want it to be.

Mojang couldn't have done a better job in my opinion. While you probably have Minecraft on some gaming device, I would recommend adding it to your Nintendo Switch game arsenal.

All in all, a pretty good game. For both long time fans and new ones alike, exploring this world is good fun. While the graphics are greatly improved, and a fair amount to the game is 3D, lots of the game refers to classic gameplay, such as the cooking of meals and the semi- birds eye view while inside some buildings.


I guess my only concern is the story itself. For fans of the older games, this games' story is a tad uninventive. While all the Pokémon games follow the same rough plot, this game seems to only send you from one gym to the next, with not much else to do apart from catch and train Pokémon. However, this is made up for by the vast world with many different environments, and the gameplay itself.


Despite this, definitely a game I would recommend for old and new fans alike.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (more commonly known as BOTW) is one of the best games I have ever played. It does almost everything right.

Exploration is a key concept in breath of the wild, and in some games this can get rather boring. However, the diversity of the different locations in BOTW despite it not being a particularly big map compared to things like Assassin's creed or Skyrim. Everywhere you go is a new, exciting place, with beautifully crafted graphics.

The gameplay aspect never gets boring either. If you don't want to follow the conventional questions, that's totally ok. In fact, the game encourages players to try new methods of working out puzzles. With how much there is to do, you can spend less than half an hour in game and still feel like you accomplished something. Combat and puzzles are exciting, and again, you can go about these in many ways.



Breath of the Wild is easily my favourite Nintendo game of all time. Explore vast deserts, swamps, snow-capped mountains, volcanos and more. Fight enemies and collect new gear, weapons and abilities while solving puzzles to help Link become stronger.

The great thing about this game is how good it is for beginners. While the tutorial area, the great plateau is large, even the size of the entire map of other Zelda games, even beginners can complete it in under a few hours, and already have a grasp on the full gameplay by then. Plus, the game allows you to solve puzzles any way you can think of, meaning it feels like more of an accomplishment to complete it.

The graphics on this game are also incredibly realistic. Almost everywhere you look are stunning expanses of beautiful scenery never seen before in a Zelda game.

In summary, if you have got a Nintendo Switch, you should buy this game as soon as you can.
