The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Cracks Metacritic's All-Time Top 5

By Julian Benson on at

As you may have gathered from Jason's massive review, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is excellent, the best Zelda in years. It thoroughly reinvents and reinterprets the tropes of the Zelda games and open world games as a whole. You don't have to take Jason's word for it, though, because Breath of the Wild has done something a game hasn't done for: it's cracked Metacritic's top 5 rated games of all-time:

2017-03-02 11_49_18-Best Video Games of All Time - Metacritic

The only game that has a higher aggregate score is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Now, the review embargo has lifted and with the flurry of reviews that will likely appear over the next week, that aggregate score may shift up or down but, for today, at least, Breath of the Wild has achieved something phenomenal.
