The 'proper' 3-d zelda's were always best (none of that wind waker, cel-shaded nonsense), with clever puzzles and great combat. They had a great atmosphere and were always must haves for their consoles. This is no different. If own a wii and don't own this you MUST get it. The puzzles are more devious than ever, and with new moves for link to use in combat such as the finishing blow. New features and side quests make the game longer (as if it needed it, the game's massive without them!), and, despite all the criticism it got, the wolf parts are sheer brilliance, and are so addictive I can't wait for the next time I get turned into one! Wolf Link brings in a whole new style of combat, and with midna's help he can be more destructive than normal link, who has a sword and can use items. The wolf bits add more depth to the game as some puzzles can only be solved by wolf link. Midna (who i mentioned earlier) is Link's helper who guides you through the game. She can get annoying with her weird high pitched voice and her constant yawning, but is invaluable. The storyline is perfect with several things happening at once. The mood is so accurate that I thought it was real for a second. Riding epona is brilliant and more fun than in previous zelda games.But there has been criticism of how zelda will handle on the wii. The game handles superbly, with good combat controls such as shaking the nunchuk to do a spin attack. Games on the wii such as wii play are great but for people who crave awesome, old skool, kick ass fun this is the pick of the bunch. This will sit there on top of the video games ladder right up there with ocarina of time. This is stunning, this should be crowned best game ever. For hardcore fans of the zelda series or newcomers to the best gaming franchise ever, this is the game everyone should play at some point in their lives. Perfect. Stunning. Marvelous. 11 out of 10
