Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Gets Most Perfect Scores Ever On Metacritic

We’re still busy working our way through the epic The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So far, it’s nothing short of amazing. We hope to have our official review up by the end of the week, but there are plenty of other media outlets out there that have weighed in.

So far the game is sitting at a 98 out of 100 on Metacritic, a site that aggregates review scores from critics. 71 reviews have been posted, and out of them the game has received 43 perfect scores, giving it the honor of having the most perfect scores bestowed upon any game ever. The previous record holders: Super Mario Galaxy  and The Last of Us each had 42 perfect ratings.

The reception has been beyond fantastic from many outlets, and we are constantly amazed as we continue to discover new areas, beasts, and gameplay mechanics. This is truly a special game that deserves the recognition that it’s been given thus far. We’ll have much more on the game as soon as we are able to.
