The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is here. Finally. After what feels like a lifetime of waiting, the latest blockbuster RPG from Nintendo has landed – and it’s a good one. With Breath of the Wild behind us, and a big open sky of possibilities in front, it felt likely that Nintendo would drop the proverbial ball and mess it up somehow. But, as per the vast, vast critical consensus, that is not the case – Zelda is back, and it appears it’s better than ever.
It comes as absolutely no surprise whatsoever that Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is sweeping critics off their feet so far. Breath of the Wild was in receipt of countless awards back in 2017, including The Game Awards’, Golden Joystick Awards, and GDC’s Game of the Year – which led many folk to declare ToTK as being 2023’s GOTY, long before we’d even caught a real glimpse of the game.
Our own James Billcliffe scored Tears of the Kingdom a 5/5 after having spent plenty of time with the game, but what are the verdicts of other critics? Let’s take a look.
