Het is fijn dat Twilight Princess na bijna tien jaar weer eens vol in de spotlights staat, want het is gewoon een top-Zelda. Tel daarbij de aardige extra’s van de HD-versie, en je beleeft een avontuur dat zich pas door de vólgende Zelda laat overtreffen.

Replaying through Twilight Princess was decidedly enjoyable and cemented it as one of my favorites. The somber tone, often melancholic music, an impressive slate of dungeons, and intriguing characters always felt simply comforting, in a way. The transition to HD and few tweaks made in this re-release have only improved on what was already a stellar game.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is an excellent addition to the Wii U library. We do acknowledge that it's a series entry that has its critics, with them often citing a lack of revolution from the Ocarina of Time template, in particular. Those that feel that way have little incentive to revisit it on Wii U, but this writer certainly feels that it stands on its own as an accomplished game - opinions, when it comes to a series as immersive and demanding as The Legend of Zelda, are everything.

In kaum einer anderen epischen Spielereihe werden die Entwicklung von Fähigkeiten eines Helden sowie die Erkundung der Welt so meisterhaft verknüpft. So entsteht ein unwiderstehlicher Sog, der einen mit sanftem Anspruch in die Tiefe zieht, weil er mit jeder Stunde weitere Möglichkeiten offenbart. Auch die naiv anmutende Regie springt einem nach ein paar Stunden wölflisch an die Kehle und eröffnet als modernes Märchen den ewigen Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse mit einem düsteren Mollakkord namens Midna. (...) Was die inhaltlichen Neuerungen betrifft, sind der etwas anspruchsvollere Helden-Modus sowie die Komfortfunktionen hinsichtlich Steuerung und Sammeln lobenswert. Die amiibo-Exklusivitäten nerven hingegen, denn nur über den Kauf dieser Figuren bekommt man z.B. den höchsten Schwierigkeitsgrad sowie die Arenakämpfe der Schattenhöhle. Aber auch ohne diese Zusätze erlebt ihr hier immer noch eines der plattformübergreifend besten Action-Adventures.

There’s a lot to love about Twilight Princess that often doesn’t get credit because it never could grip the imagination quite like Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, or Skyward Sword did. The HD rerelease is a good chance to hop back in and appreciate all that – the terrific character development, the unique gameplay ideas, and a very scary Bug Princess.

In the end, Twilight Princess is easily the definitive version of a Zelda classic. It may not be the prettiest or the most epic Zelda, but it's still a remarkable adventure, and playing it again in glorious high definition reminded me of why I regard it as one of my favorite titles. If you own a Wii U and somehow missed it the first time, or are just chomping at the bit for more information on Zelda U, you would be well advised to give this one a try.

Gamekult (Mar 01, 2016)
Le level design ô combien inspiré des donjons, parmi les meilleurs de la série, tranche avec un monde extérieur qui paraîtra aujourd'hui toujours plus balisé, cloisonné, désincarné. En témoignent les premières heures de jeu, véritable test de persévérance avant de pouvoir enfin mordre l'aventure à pleines dents. Le portage soigné à de nombreux points de vue (fluidité, ergonomie générale) ne fait pas oublier qu'il s'agit à l'origine d'un jeu GameCube, même pas Wii, ce que trahissent les décors anguleux, les textures vestiges d'une autre époque et certains aspects de jouabilité. Comme le jeu n'apporte finalement pas grand-chose en matière de contenu, sorti des amiibo gadget et de l'ergonomie de l'inventaire, on aura donc du mal à le conseiller plein pot à ceux qui le connaissent déjà par coeur. Les fans de Zelda en manque et les curieux pourront eux déguster ce qui s'apparente à un grand best-of, dans tout ce que la série a de grandiose et, aujourd'hui, de désuet.

Link-Cable (May 09, 2016)
It’s a sad truth but Wii U owners can’t be picky when it comes to their games and to be fair they could do a lot worse than The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. The game brings a classic Zelda experience into the modern age complete with HD visuals, modern controls and new elements to enrich the experience. Where it falls short however is in the realization that you wouldn’t get a much different experience by sliding the Wii version in your Wii U console.
 
Diehard GameFan (Mar 17, 2016)
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a remaster based on the Gamecube release of the original game, which means Link is once again left handed and motion controls are a thing of the past. The visual enhancements do well to showcase the dark aesthetic intended by the original, and the added conveniences make playing the game much more enjoyable than it was previously. Amiibos are supported by way of refilling health and arrows, though the bundled Wolf Link grants access to a new dungeon that’s sadly less exciting than it sounds. There aren’t as many enhancements as implemented in Wind Waker HD, but for Zelda fans wanted to take another stab at this entry, it’s still absolutely worth the upgrade. Especially considering how expensive it is to obtain the Gamecube original.
