A very good game but just a few little annoyances

The description of items in this game is so repetitive and constantly holding up the same item you got a few moments ago gets annoying when in the bazaar. Other than this it is a very great game. I found Fi to get extremely annoying, "tell me something I don't know Fi ...".

Best use of Wii controls so far ...

... but it is still Zelda, a game for sub-10-year-old girls who like fantasy and enjoy brushing up on their reading skills.

Too much filler

This is a well made adventure game, with creative level design, and entertaining use of, and variety of, key items. The graphics are pretty good, everything looks like what it does, and the characters are cute and entertaining, for the most part. The graphics presented here aren't simulations of the appearance of reality, but rather a form of puppetry, that works most of the time. I also like that there is limited voice acting, since reading is more active than listening cut scenes are a little less boring.
This is also one of the most annoying games I've ever played. The controls just don't work well enough, most of the difficulty in the game is caused by them. There are too many fetch quests, repetition of previously completed dungeons and areas, and other filler. The sound effects also get a little annoying.
