Any Zelda fans here?
Played about four hours last night. Impressed so far. Controls are a bit different and inventory isn't as straightforward as previous games. Seems as though it departs from the old style of slowly getting good/better/best items and instead you get a ton of stuff to use as fits the occasion. But you can cycle through them on the fly so it's not a pain. Takes a bit of getting used to though.
While your health is still measured in hearts, you no longer find hearts laying around. You find food items instead, and you can use them or merge them to different effects. Functions like potions. But you can carry a lot of it, so instead of finding hearts all over the world you just carry a lot of food and eat it when you need health.
Far more open world than any of the others. While the older games more or less herded you in one direction, this one let's you go just about anywhere. Of course some of those places you won't last too long or need items you dnt have yet, but you get just enough clues to point you in the right direction.
I've waited six years for this game, and I was really hoping they'd knock it out of the park and so far it seems they did. I was also concerned when they said it's the biggest Zelda ever; that's what they said about Skyward Sword, and yeah the sky was big...and filled with a whole lot of nothing.
