So. It's been an entire generation of system since there has been a really good realistic Legend of Zelda game. Nintendo has to do something great to bring back the fame this series has accumulated. Did they turn the series around? Absolutely.
TP is an amazing game, graphics, gameplay, and plot.
I'm simply amazed how they nailed the dog to a punch. The dog paddling is incredible, and if you don't move for a while, and the dog sits down in a way that says "Yo, I'm a dog." Plus. his attacks are awesome. Leaping and grabbing an opponent's throat, and thrashing around biting it: excellent. Spinning around as if with a sword: sweet. My personal fav: Midna's "doom" attack. You get surounded, BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM! Awesome.
Again, they kept in great with the Zelda plot: different Link, same outfit, Hero. No one talks (at least in English); Links voice is a little deeper, but it has the same ring to it.
Riding your horse (you get to name it!) is also amazing. You can backflip off of her, attack with the sword, and many other stunts.
One thing that somewhat startled me was that there was no definate musical instrument. I shrugged it off after a few minutes. We've been through quite a few: Ocarina, harp(Sheik), fingers(Impa),whatever the heck that thing was in windwaker, all of the 5 instruments in Majora's Mask, probably many more. We're bound to run out eventually. We don't want him playing a kazoo, so grass is ok.
On the good hand, this game is amazing in keeping up in the Zelda series, but on the other hand, there are some not so great things.
One would be the annoying explosion of enemies. Thank you windwaker(Sarcasm). They could have at least come up with something cooler looking. It's alright, but I personally like the OoT's fade-into-the ground type thing, or the catch on fire and burn to rupees. That was awesome.
Another extremely annoying thing would be "the Twilight". Pretty lame if you ask me. The idea of the Twilight? No, just how they made it look. All of the black squares floating up. The idea of darkness coming over the land and everyone turning into spirits: pure genius. Another thing that annoys me would be the portals. Again, Portals opening up and sending creatures down and such: genius. Making it look like something out of "Scooby Doo and the Cyber Chase": not so great.
One semi-dissapointment would be it's gameplay on the Wii. Now this is a GREAT game, but it's just not that much better on the Wii then I suspect it is on the GC. For one thing, you always have the freakin fairy on the screen, or at least its wings. Secondly, the swordplay isn't that terrific. It doesn't matter how hard you swing, which direction, or anything. Also, arrows, and boomerang, not the greatest, at least in my opinion. Am I saying that the game is bad? No. I am saying that the game is good, but the Wii play doesn't add much to it.
If you have ever played a Legend of Zelda, go get this game. If you have ever played a video game, get this game. LINK OWNZ!
