Breath of the Wild doesn't feel like a Zelda game. At least, not at first.
After being woken up from an abnormally long slumber by a mysterious voice, Link is immediately set loose into a Hyrule that's both larger and more threatening than any version of the fictional kingdom we've explored in the past. In the opening moments, there are no friendly faces to welcome you to the world or cutscenes to explain where you've been. There's just an endless expanse ahead of you and an old man cooking apples down the path to your right. More than ever, Link is on his own.
