I bought the switch for the kids who enjoy mariokart, just dance etc. I bought Zelda as I was a bit intrigued what it would be like (having not played video games for about 20 years...)

Well, about 100 hours later and to the annoyance of my wife and kids, I finished it.

I have to say the inital experience of simply exploring and discovering what was in the huge landscape (I admit I had to get a little help from the internet) was somewhat better than completing it, which seemed not that challenging or satisfying compared to some of earlier challenges when you are limited in resources and monsters around corners could completely ruin your day.

I found once I had access to armour, special weapons, protection and extra energy things got almost too easy, but on balance I'm glad, as I think I'd have lost interest or I'd still be playing it and annoying my wife.

My favourite bits were; beating the first divine beast and the long quest to do it (Zora's domain/Vah Ruta - the Elephant). A neat thing I liked was stumbling across a nice little cottage, finding out I could actually buy it, move in and make it all homely by mounting Lynel savage shields, swords and bows as wall decorations.

So I'd say it's well worth it, but be prepared to lose many hours playing it.

Excellent. Thanks.
I have to admit, I'm a Nintendoian. I bought the first LoZ back in the 80's (my mum bought it more accurately) and I spent many happy hours pon it, the one on the SNES remains one of my fave games. I know I played the one on the WIi quite a lot some years ago, can't really recall which one, but I'd forgotten about the switch/zelda and then an ad reminded me, and I wanna delve in to that world again.

Probably The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

That's the most recent one that I've played. Our Wii probably needs a refresh, so will get a Switch with Mario Kart for the family & the latest LOZ for myself.

Budget for buying the expansion packs and jump straight into Master mode. The main game is the hardest Zelda I’ve ever played and master mode ramps it up but allows you to have stronger weapons sooner. The teaser for the sequel is out too.
