An amazing (and Free!) DLC. The devs really learned from the main game, and forged their experience and expertise into a more linear, lore-filled experience that was a lot of fun while it lasted. Also, it was nowhere near as buggy and broken as the main game, so that's a big plus.
At this point I've seen about 80% of the game and I feel like I can now give a well-funded review of the game. And what can I say, it's fantastic. Shocker, I know. Jokes aside, I'm baffled how Nintendo managed to get this game to run on Switch, and pretty much flawlessly at that. The freedom this game gives you is like nothing I have ever seen. Every puzzle can be solved in different ways, there is hardly ever this one right way to do something here. The developers took the narrative freedom Breath of the Wild's story had and built on that, making this an open-world game that has no linear story, but somehow still succeeds at telling the player a coherent story that is not tied to a certain path the player has to take. The only aspect I did not like that much were the cinematic story pieces that were tied to the geoglyphs, because due to the cinematics being tied to certain locations, depending on which path the player takes, understanding the story can be a challenge, and can lead to players experiencing plot points way too soon in their playthrough, leading to confusion or heavy spoilers. Other than that, this is a fantastic game and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who would like a game with a beautiful open-world that keeps you hooked for hours on end.
