Weak

Ruined by Controls and Pace

This game feels like it was made 10 years ago. Presentation and control of games have evolved so much in the last decade and shipping a "AAA" title that functions as poorly and is this badly paced and presented is just unforgivable.

You'll be constantly fighting the controls and camera to get it to do the simplest things. The motionplus is shoddy at best during combat and I lost track of how many times I fell off cliffs trying get Link to jump towards a stationary vine.

Every once in a while something cool will happen or there will be an actually enjoyable fight or puzzle but the ratio seemed to be roughly 2 hours of play for 15 minutes of real entertainment.

I couldn't even finish the game. I just don't have the patience to slog through all the garbage to get to the good parts. I just cant believe Nintendo still hasn't figured out how to make a solid AAA title that actually utilizes their motion controls well.

Best game I've played so far and if you're a die hard fan then you will appreciate this for everything they tell you and how they say it,hopefully fans will catch that,but if you're a newcomer to the game it is still amazing and great story line and safari as I know it's so far the only Zelda game that allows you to start over with you save file in a new mode.
