If there are any other Ubisoft titles you're interested in trying, it's on their Ubisoft+ subscription thing. I subbed for a month to try out Watch Dogs Legion and AC Valhalla, neither are games I'd actually play through to finish but I was interested in seeing and kicking around in them for a bit. I'll probably check this one out too, then kill the sub before Cyberpunk 2077 comes out. ~$20 to get my fill of 3 AAA games and kill some time before the only game I'm actually looking forward to this year. Works for me.

Each refresh of zelda has had its imitators and at a certain point the copies round out their own little subgenre and become worthy of respect on their own. Heck, even beyond zelda this happens with everything. Immortals seems like an ok transition piece to the offshoots that stand great on their own.

Worth remembering that BOTW was an offshoot as well of things like skyrim and other open world games.

I watched the trailer and.. already played something better (Genshin) pass....

Wow... Just imagine how many great games would have been ignored if this was a common feeling...

Yeah, we'd have less BOTW clones that pretend but only clone and maybe some real competitors that try to aim higher. If I am being cynically about "Ubisoft open world games" you really only can blame Ubisoft.. and their horrible systemic open worlds.

What's with the Spyro the Dragon graphics? And what's with all the reviews? Why do people give a shit about this enough to have every review site and then some post launch reviews?
It's a Ubisoft title that isn't Far Cry, AssCreed or one of their other established franchises, that's a special occasion.

Genshin is pretty good for the price (free) and makes a great impression with its expanded (but still rather limited) facsimile of Breath of the Wild's elemental interactions, but it quickly becomes very grindy and generally suffers from crowding the otherwise pleasant landscape with too many minor, meaningless encounters. They don't really give you much time to just walk around and enjoy the view, probably out of fear that those playing on mobile devices will get bored during very short sessions. Then factor in the floaty movement systems and imprecise combat necessitated by the lag of a persistent online connection, as well as a heaping helping of the usual F2P trappings like the slowly-regenerating energy pool spent on claiming repeatable activity rewards and abysmal gacha rates... I don't think I'll be sticking with it to the 'end' (a moving target with their admittedly impressive plan of continuous updates), despite the few weeks of fun diversion it provided me.

It was obvious from the very first reveal trailer that Immortals was also trying to be BOTW, but from what I've read in some of these reviews so far, it seems like even the mighty Ubi open world machine has failed in capturing what made that game so special. Just fooling around in Zelda's limited tutorial area (which I've done again recently) is more dynamic and satisfying at a basic gameplay level than what anyone else has been putting out since then. There is so much attention to detail put into the wildlife, the cooking system, the physics, and the environment, which benefits greatly from Nintendo's legendary level design prowess... If some random indie dev had put together a game that was JUST the Great Plateau and sold it for like $10, it would be universally lauded and sell millions. Shit, man, BOTW 2 can't get here fast enough.

Honestly, the game doesn't look at that bad. I'm not a big fan of games having a lot of puzzles. And that's what the IFN review was saying, had way to much puzzle and not enough other fun stuff. But over all he liked it.

To me, this seems more fun the Valhalla was. I just couldn't stand that game and got it refunded luckily.

Yep, it looks pretty good, but I worry about puzzles.

Is it a zelda rip off, or just a game in that same genre. I think the latter. And if it's fun in its own right, who cares if they've heavily borrowed some ideas. I mean it's not like Zelda invented the open world exploration genre.

One man's ripoff is another man's homage.
