5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary Legend of Zelda on Gamecube...Woooo yeah!, 14 Mar. 2005
It was critcised alot at its E3 unveiling because of the cell-shaded graphics but all soon saw that under the layer of kiddiness was one of the best games in what is probably the most successful series ever in gaming history. It is definetely easier than other Zelda games and probably shorter. The sunny locales and sandy beaches seem uncharictaristically cheerful compared to the moodiness of Majoras mask and Ocarina of time, even in the dungeons. If you are knew to Zelda then this may be the easiest way of breaking the ice, unfortunately if you haven't played previous games in the series the storyline won't make sense. But this is classic Zelda gameplay... hearing the new item fanfare is as exciting as it ever was as you wield many typical Zelda items like the hookshot, light arrows and the master sword. It has all the sidequests you'd expect from a Zelda game like "collect some pigs" and "get me a fairy". These may sound boring but they often end up involving you doing a puzzle, fighting hardened Moblins or picking of flying Keese with the boomerang. You'll spend alot of time sailing the truly VAST ocean and encounter cool sea battles against everything from giant octos to bomb belching pirate ships. New puzzles come into play when you get to do some dungeons with allies, these include pressing switches and reflecting light to dissolve stuff.
All in all it's a solid Zelda game not to be sniffed at.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phildor Khan in the world of W and W, 14 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Wizards and Warriors (Video Game)
Wizards and Warriors may not have super graphics in this world of Xboxs, Gamecubes and PS2s but it still has the fun gameplay fans of D.W Bradley expect. Basically an evil Pharoah called Cet'un'wakah or something has overcome a curse and is wreaking havok in the land of the Gael Serran. And some weird old women called the Oracles of Ishad N'ha are the only ones who seem in anyway hacked off about this. Oh yeah, and some guy Gareth tells you to get a magical sword for him, that is where the game kicks off.
One thing I do love about this game is the role system, you can do anything from a lizard-man ninja priest to a pixie paladin wizard. All of these give you extra bonuses and spells which would make the US army run and cry. But beware, from the puny Troll Guni to the DEADLY Amazoni mantrap the enemies are dangerous. In fact if you don't know what you are doing you are doomed from the start because the game throws atyou an army of vicious undead lead by the sorcerous bonelord and a militia of trolls near the beginning(oh, sorry, ok no more spoilers)
But with a range of side qusts and pretty cool NPCs this is a solid RPG which you won't be done with for a while, and you'll play it all over again with a different party of warriors. it would have got five stars if the graphics were better. So, what are you waiting for?
