A Worthy Sequel – The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Review Roundup

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the highly-anticipated and long-awaited sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new action adventure from Nintendo has just been released in Australia, along with many glowing reviews about the game; if you’re wondering if it’s worth picking up Link’s new adventure, here’s what they’ve got to say.

What is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Metacritic and Opencritic Score?

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has scored 96 on Metacritic and 97 on Opencritic, with over 60 critic reviews on each site. As Tears of the Kingdom is only available on the switch, there is often a lower number of total critic reviews; however, there are all extremely positive:

Reviews across the board are glowing at how Tears of the Kingdom expanded on Breath of the Wild’s mechanics and features while still filling fresh despite being set in a similar Hyrule. Edmond Tran of GamesHub called it ‘a staggeringly eye-opening game that expertly cultivates the joy of exploration, discovery and believing in your own abilities.’

It’s hard to find a negative critique about the title other than some disappointment in the reusing of Hyrule, although the addition of the Sky Islands and cave systems seems to keep the world fresh long enough for this new adventure. Performance seems to be better at launch than Breath of the Wild, with Digital Foundry stating that the day one patch resolved most performance issues with the experience.

Where to buy Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom cheapest?

The price varies in Australia depending on the outlet; here is a list of the major retailers and their pre-order prices:
