A return to the past for the Zelda series...

The Good
Zelda: Twilight Princess was a great game in the Zelda series, bringing the series back to its natural feel that emanated during the Nintendo 64 games, with much improvements made to the graphics from that platform. The storyline of the game, until the end is one the most well-developed in the series. This game takes several of my favorite gameplay elements from Wind Waker and fits them within the world of Twilight Princess. This game continues the innovations of the previous Zelda games.

The Bad
The title of my review also presages certain elements of the game, a return to the past includes no musical instrument for Link, and Magic disappears from Link Arsenal for the first time in a long time. Other problems with this game, minor in retrospect but annoying include, the sheer uselessness of some items after they're required to advance the plot. The wolf mode, touted as a new element for the Zelda series, disappointed me, it was cool when you first played it, but after a couple of sessions playing as a wolf, I became disillusioned, combat with the wolf is frustrating, the howling mechanism is very hard to distinguish, among other things, I hope the next incarnation of Zelda does not replicate this part of the game

The Bottom Line
This game, despite the negatives described above, remains a wonderful game in the Zelda series, and if it wasn't for the problems I had with Wolf Link, might have topped Ocarina as a game for me.I sincerely recommend playing this game if you've ever enjoyed a Zelda game...

Perfection achieved

The Good
This is by far the best Zelda game I have ever played.

Being one who has lived through all the Zelda games to the current date, I can without doubt call this game a masterpiece. I bought this game on Friday, was finished on Sunday evening. I didn't leave the freaking chair, it took me a whole 37 hours to play it through. It is by far the most adrenaline-filled Zelda game that has been launched.

Twilight Princess has beautiful artistic perspective, and one of the best looking Game Cube games to date. There is nothing more fun than shooting an arrow all the way across Hyrule field, then riding your horse trying to find it again. With award winning sound and gameplay, the most in depth plot, great graphics, great artistic perspective, over 60 hours of gameplay, and a character that never talks, The legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is sure to bring enjoyment to any gamer who appreciates games for what they are, an art.

Twilight Princess amazingly follows through on all of its promises. Nintendo has done what one might consider the unthinkable -- achieved perfection.

The Bad
For some people that have played several Zelda games in the past. This is not a very hard game to finish.

The Bottom Line
There is not a single point where the game is not at an outstanding level. I would like to tell you more about it, and tell you in detail about every feature in the whole game, but...why should I tell you, when you can experience it yourself? Why should I spoil the greatest adventure of all? The best way to experience all this is to play it yourself. And I do recommend that you do just that, so go buy one, for your own sake, and get the game. You will not be disappointed. Nintendo has created a true masterpiece.
