I am not a clever man. My brain is not wired for doing essays and wielding cool language. I just let my mind shit on the page, and it's your job to smell it.

There's some great stuff in here with the doors opened by the new powers, but it all still suffers from the same issues BOTW had.
These new Zelda games have a real problem with rewarding the player. You're given all the upgrades in the first couple of hours, which means almost every chest you open for the rest of the game is either a weapon that will be broken in 2 minutes, or often a piece of armour from the previous entry. It made me end up feeling deflated at the end of most quests.
This isn't helped by it all taking place in a world you already know with some changes. It's less "The Sequel to Breath of the Wild" as it is BOTW 1.5. I'm desperate for the next mainline entry to be a well curated semi-linear joint. Take me back.

It just plays like total shit. I've seen the old trailers showing fake gameplay, I knew it would never be like that, but deary me it is miles away from what they promised.
Guns are somehow inaccurate, and yet also able to kill a dude by shooting vaguely close to his body. Sword fighting is a case of praying that the game decides whether or not to recognise that you moved the wiimote and nunchuck. They put checkpoints at the start of unskippable minute long cutscenes and then throw you into these bullshit sword fights that skill doesn't seem to enter into. It's maddening.
When I felt like I was nearing the end I did a quick google to see just how much I had left, and said "FUCK OFF" out loud when I saw that I was a quarter of the way through, and my playtime was only two and a half hours. I would have bet you money I'd sank ten hours into it easily.
It's a disappointment in every way, and despite featuring plenty East Asian actors, feels racist in a way that's hard for a man of my intelligence to articulate. Please avoid. Don't let curiosity get the better of you like it did me.
