If you’re like me when you launched into Breath of the Wild, knowing that there were 120 shrines, you kind of cringed thinking that they would all be mini dungeons that would be hard to navigate and finish. Once I sat down and started playing the game for the first time, I was found this wasn’t the case. The shrines turned out to be more of a test of my skills that I had learned while playing. Some of the shrines had quests attached to them. But were they a good substitute for all of the dungeons that we all know and love? I think not.

The puzzles found within the Divine Beasts make up more of a typical dungeon than the shrines too. The shrines are more like mini puzzles. The first four dungeons you encounter in the game alone are tutorials of how to use the runes on the Sheikah Slate. Other types of shrines include tests of strength, puzzles using the runes, or rewards for completing shrine quests.

What do you think? Are shrines a good substitute for traditional dungeons? Sound off in the comments below!
