Critics have called Tears of the Kingdom a worthy sequel to Breath of the Wild and one of the best games for Nintendo Switch. It was praised for its elaborate open world, freedom of experimentation, many new mechanics and intriguing storyline. On the downside, it was praised for rare bugs and rather poor optimization.
