I bought this game expecting it to be good, as i'd heard rave reviews. As a result i was expecting to play it and be let down compared to the perfect picture that my mind had painted of how it would be.
I was wrong.
The game was wonderful, and was the best experience i've had playing a zelda game since Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. This game has a wonderful sparkle which many games simply don't have more recently. Everything has character to it, and everything is beautiful.
You'll enjoy this game if you enjoyed any of the previous zelda games in particular, as this game includes elements which underrun the rest of the series (this is the first game in chronological timeline order of the series). also, you will enjoy this game if you find controlling swordfighting 1:1 interesting...
The fact that the controls are bound 1:1 to the movement of the wiimote plus makes the game wonderfully immersive, so you really do feel like the hero of hyrule himself. And due to the real-time swordfighting, the game had a challenging difficulty curve with me having to seriously think about fighting in certain sections. The difficulty curve was well executed though, as none of the game really frustrated me at all in terms of difficulty. I may be forced to eat my own words though, as i have just started to play through the game on "hero mode" which is a higher difficulty version of the quest... wish me luck.
