Wii U and Zelda game...
on 26 December 2013
I got this when it was on special offer at £40 off the current cost and I'm happy with the price considering it came with a special Zelda edition controller and the Zelda game.
Was disappointed to find that it's not actually a physical copy of the Zelda wind walker game though, it's just a download of the game. Felt a bit let down by that but I suppose it is what it is. Might not be any good for someone without internet access though and who is expecting an actual copy of the game in disc form.
I'll be honest, trying to connect to the wi-fi and actually download the game was a bit of a faff and took more than a few tries even when right next to the router but we finally managed to get it all up and running and the game is pretty good once you get into it. Great graphics and gameplay...it's just that little disappointment of no physical copy and the download problems takes the edge of things a bit. Not much of an edge but enough to rattle someone who was looking forward to the 'out of the box and playing within minutes' expectation that has become the norm for gaming console players. A couple of hours messing about with it before it will work isn't what anyone is looking forward to really.
When it works it's great...getting it to work though might take a bit of patience if you run into the connection problems we had. Nothing I can offer in the way of helpful tips really, just keep at it and hopefully it'll connect to wi-fi sooner rather than later.
