What do these ratings mean?

B+ is a completely misinformed rating for this game.  It definitely deserves an A+.

Since the very beginning of the Zelda games you have been able to name your character whatever you want.  What makes this Link any different than any other and so different to be labelled "not technically Link"?  You make it sound like all the Links in the previous games are the same person and this one is not.  Only a few of the games share Links and only with one other game.

For those who think that Nintendo may try to tie all the link games together this game is huge.  There is a Gerudo prison and it even shows the seven sages imprisoning Ganon which comes up in the history of A Link to the Past.

"nothing new" is an awful statement too.  They gave Link some of the skills and weapons that I wished they had in older games- double hookshot, actually doing something with your shield, metamorphosis, bringing bomb-arrows from Link's Awakening, the ball&chain and all the different sword moves. The good parts of the old games were kept though- (Zelda, Ganon, Link and the Master Sword) along with many of the classic weapons.(boomerang, bow, and bombs)

The combat was a bit easy, but that's where the replay value comes from... The second time through, you play without getting any more hearts or using a shield (which I don't really feel like doing since the shield helps a lot in this game).  And even if you didn't do that, I don't see how this game has any less replay value than any of the other Zelda games.
