The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been one of our most anticipated titles for years. Now that it’s finally available, was it worth the wait? According to critics, that answer is a resounding “yes”.

As of now, Tears of the Kingdom stands as the highest rated game of all time on OpenCritic with an average score of 97 out of 100. For anyone who doesn’t know, OpenCritic is an aggregate review site that compiles review scores from a variety of video game critics online. In addition, Tears of the Kingdom is the highest rated game of 2023 (so far) over on MetaCritic, yet another aggregate review site. There, it has a score of 96 out of 100.

These scores could change in the coming days, weeks, and months, but at least for now, it’s an impressive showing for the latest Zelda game! (Now, you can stop reading about reviews and go back to playing it!)

I can't take these serious. These probably have been payed play throughs under time pressure. Anyway written experiences are so much better without adding it to an eternal judgement system, that is what (meta) ratings are right? Infecting the value of a game with a snapshot rating and spamming it on the internet forever feels very incorrect.
