Product Description

Platform: GameCube

Product Description

Link, a young man raised as a wrangler in a small, rural village, is ordered by the mayor to attend the Hyrule Summit. He sets off, oblivious to the dark fate that has descended upon the kingdom. When he enters the Twilight Realm that has covered Hyrule, he transforms into a wolf and is captured. A mysterious figure named Midna helps him break free, and with the aid of her magic, they set off to free the land from the shadows. Features the characters Link, Zelda, Midna and many others, both new and old.


  • When Link travels to into the darkened land of Hyrule, he transforms into a wolf and must scour the land with the help of a mysterious being named Midna.
  • Ride into battle against troops of foul creatures with an incredible horseback combat system, then take on massive bosses that must be seen to be believed.
  • Many puzzles stand between Link and the fulfillment of his quest, so players must sharpen their wits as they hunt for weapons and items.

    How to progress through the game: Link must explore the vast land of Hyrule and uncover the mystery behind its plunge into darkness. As he does, he'll have to enlist the aid of friendly folk, solve puzzles and battle his way through dangerous dungeons. In the Twilight Realm, he'll have to use his wolf abilities and Midna's magic to bring light to the land.
    Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Besides his trusty sword and shield, Link will use his bow and arrows, fight while on horseback and use a wealth of other items, both new and old.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant...but not perfect. 18 Jun 2007
    By Zabba
    Platform for Display:GameCube
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This is a massive game that's been in the works for years, the reason I am reviewing the Gamecube version is simply because that is the one I own. Here goes...

    Graphics: For the 6th generation standards, this looks brilliant, characters and environments are of high quality and are extremely detailed, although despite also being released for the Wii, it doesn't match anything you'll see on the Xbox 360 or PS3. The water effects are very nice and Bosses look just plain awesome.

    Controls: Because this is the Gamecube version, the controls are the traditional formula, seen in Windwaker and the Gamecube port of Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask. They are not hard to grasp and can be picked up in a matter of minutes. However I did find myself constantly pausing to get items like in Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time, rather than pressing up on the D-Pad, which fustrated me slightly.

    Gameplay: Simply fantastic, the game is massive and there's loads of places to explore, the dungeons are well designed and the puzzles, although they don't live up to the standard of thier predecessors, are still tricky in places. Countless enmeies are to be slain and the bosses literally take up whole rooms. There's a traditional Zelda feel, especially when you see the nods towards OoT. However, the main reason I've knocked the game down a star is because it is FAR too easy. None of the puzzles and enemies/bosses posed a significant challenge for me and the last boss was a pushover. The game is great, but for those who want a challenge you won't find it here. Also for those who tend to spoil the games for themselves, try not to (I know it's hard right now) but the game is much more enjoyable if you haven't got a clue what will happen next.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The quality of the series shines through. 30 Jan 2007
    Platform for Display:GameCube
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    The new Zelda game is the last one for the Gamecube. Lucky for me, as I didn't have to buy a Wii to play it and there does not appear to be much visual difference between the two versions. Whichever version you play, it's another outing for Link as the Kingdom of Hyrule is yet again under threat from an evil tyrant. Now, Twilight Princess could well be the best one since Ocarina of Time but it is very fortunate that the Zelda series is held in such high regard among gaming fans, because how many other games could get away with simply re-making the classic format in each new edition, albeit in a shiny new adventure? So if you have played Ocarina or time or Wind Waker or any of the older games, you'll know the story before it even begins. The plot is as follows: A young farmer (called Link we presume, or whatever you name him) leaves his village on an errand only to find that shadowy monsters are turning the land of Hyrule into a place of darkness. The creatures kidnap some of the village children, and when Link follows them he meets up with a small fairy like creature called Midna who convinces him to join forces with her in tracking down some sacred artefacts that will help rid Hyrule of the evil invaders.

    Now this is all lots of fun, but I really think the series could have done better than simply repeating all of the previous games' ingredients. For example, you once again start out with no money, a health meter of 3 hearts and no decent equipment, but these can all be expanded as time goes on. On your travels you will again encounter the aquatic Hylians and their underwater temple (which starts off frozen), the rock shaped Gorons and their temple on lava-filled Death Mountain, and the man-eating plants and spiders of the Sacred Forest temple.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Correcting the Wii - aholic 9 Dec 2006
    Platform for Display:GameCube
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Dont allow the bias of the Wii owner to put you off buying this game for your gamecube. His assumptions of the Wii version being superior are his own incorrect bias coming into play.

    FACT : Gamecube Zelda is graphically and aurally no different to the Wii Version. the Wii version is an identical port of this game. The only difference is in the control method.

    FACT : Many Wii owners have requested that Wii Zelda support a standard Gamecube type gamepad as well as the nunchuck combo because ... basically... it is far easier to use than the wii controller.

    So buy a Wii by all means... but dont think you are missing out by buying the gamecube version of this game instead of buying a wii and and the relevant version.

    Fantastic console the Wii, but if you cant get or afford one this christmas... the gamecube Zelda version will do pretty much as well...

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Zelda game, but not the greatest..... 23 Jan 2007
    Platform for Display:GameCube
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    As a Zelda fanatic, I have to say that this game is close to being perfect. The game is gorgeous and shows exactly what the Gamecube was capable of, something which took a long time (perhaps too long) in coming.

    The game itself relies heavily on the success of OOT, taking the names of well-known places such as Kakariko Village, Hyrule Field, Death Mountain and Lake Hylia. The music is also very similar because of this (you'll instantly notice the Death Mountain music!!).

    The idea of the game is not as exciting as OOT, but it still captivates you. The shadows and light aspect and the suspiciousness of Midna, the little being who accompanies you, make you want to go on to the end.

    The game is not as deep as OOT, yet there are dungeons galore.

    If you own a Wii, I still suggest you get the Gamecube version. Having played both, I can safely say that the controls on the GC version are much better and user-friendly, plus the graphics aren't all that dissimilar.

    Overall, this game is an excellent addition to any GC or Wii gamers collection. It aint OOT, but it aint Wind Waker either!
