Well, that's it guys. The end of the world is nearly upon is. Not our world but Hyrule, that is. The embargo for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild previews has ended.
Let's hear what professional journalists have to say about the game. I also hope you like the topic I created. Enjoy!
If your preview hasn't been added to this list please PM me or send me a message/tweet on Twitter.
Note: The REVIEWS for the game will drop next Thursday, March 2 at 3:00 AM PT/6:00 AM ET/11:00 AM GMT/10:00 PM AEDT. Expect another topic made by me then. The OT will be up on either March 2nd or 3rd.
