Zelda: Breath of the Wild passes The Last of Us and Super Mario Galaxy for most all-time perfect scores on Metacritic

To say The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an instant classic and one of the best of all time. Nintendo Switch early adopters, like myself, are having an absolute blast with Nintendo’s latest masterpiece. Its the best review game of this generation of consoles and fourth highest rated on Metacritic, averaging a 98% score from critics, coming in just behind Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, Ocarina of Time and GTA IV.

Breath of the Wild can claim the title of MOST perfect scores from critics though. It has 43 perfect scores from various critics, surpassing Super Mario Galaxy and The Last of Us which previously held that record on Metacritic at 42.

I’m roughly 20 hours into the game and I am barely tackling the first dungeon. Breath of the Wild is an absolute delight that is consistently surprising and always entertaining. If the rest of the game holds up it will be hard for me to argue against these 43 perfect scores.
