Alright to be fair, I saw a lot demos and beta screens and videos and because the game wasn't quite fully developed I really didn't see how amazing this game is, in the beta it had that cartoony look to it like Windwaker (Which I didn't hate, but still all the Zelda games I have seen and played recently look spectacular graphically especially Twilight Princess) and I wasn't too fond of the look, until I got the game and said "What the hell I'll play it". Sure enough it has had me hooked.

For starters it's an awesome Wii game that allows you to really have movement of your sword (Instead of waving your hand around like you're a kid with a sparkler) and swing it in different directions in order to slash specific ways for certain enemies. Making use the whole Wii experience a wonderful thing.

Next this is, in this game instead of riding around on Epona, you have a bird in which to control him you have to tilt you Wii mote left or right in order to go in that direction so no more analog stick to control you trusty ste....errr bird.

There is so much more to come out of this game it would take me days in order to write a well written review, but I don't think you all want to read this as well.

Most of the games mechanics revolves around the Wii Mote rather than the analog stick and programmed moves and actions like Twilight Princess was, but it really focuses on movement of the Wii mote to perform different actions.

The story itself is also wonderful and quite the plot twisting arm being amazingness that any Zelda game is, for instance, though Link still can't talk (Which by the way, finally a new voice actor has been thrown into the game for all the "Ahh"s and damage being done to Link) when presented in some situations multiple choice (Yes done in other Zelda games, but these responses are kind of different and add more comical relief) options can be selected as a response.

Again (Stated a moment ago) this game also takes a bit of the comical side, sure other Zelda games had funny moments, but this game kind of makes it obvious from the start, but it has it's seriousness drawn in.

From the beginning to the end this game has so much to offer, but one thing that this game does is clear up a lot of confusion throughout the plot line and even big theories are cleared up as well (Which if you want to know their are a lot of spoilers I won't give out so message me if you'd like to know :D)


This games is one game that gives me hope to dust off my Wii and play it. I love this game. :D

Awesome review! It's nice to have some console games reviewed in here, too.
