I'm really surprised I didn't really get into this game earlier. It's the reason I bought the switch and yet I barely played either until recently. I've not played enough to actually review it but I can say that it's worth the price of admission.
When it came out I purchased the hard cover players guide and the game, and three or four amiibos. The amiibos make almost no difference other than adding some materials and on occasion offering a pretty OP weapon (at least in early stages) but the guide is great. The game is Nintendos take on the Elder Scrolls Series. The story is good, the voice acting is bad, and the gameplay is amazing. I've spent hours just farming materials and exploring. I'd suggest using the guide as more of a reference instead of following it as a walk thru as it has the potential to shorten the game significantly. I'll attempt a proper review once I've gotten through it.
Prior to this game I was in a real gaming slump. I'd almost convinced myself I'd outgrown gaming or just lost interest. After reintroducing myself to BOTW I've realized i'm still a gamer. I don't just pick this game up when i'm bored, i carve out several hours a week for it.
