I didnt receive much either. This game was innovative and interesting, but overall in my opinion the cliche' ideal of it all was boring. I only got past the first few temples before it got monotonous and started droning on. I would rather play a rehashed remake of an actual Zelda game then a re-visioned 3D pix elated knock-off.
Well as everyone says this game is pretty much Zelda from the nes/snes days. Graphics are very polished despite all the dots, lol. Controls are exactly as a old snes game. Story is pretty lame on purpose and can ofen leave you laughing with the bad puns and jabs at Zelda itself. After 6 or so hours the game seems to start to drag on and gets very repetitive. I actually didnt beat the game but sent it back near the very end. Even with that I say this is a pretty good game and a perfect example of what to rent on gamefly.
This is the closest to a Zelda game I've played on a Sony console, and it's extremely tongue in cheek about that fact. The graphics come across as very complimentary to the nostalgia of 8 bit gaming. Humor abounds through the game, including the fish "sword" and swords that take up HUGE portions of the screen (while you have a full health bar). If you're playing to finish the game, it's a nice romp through the world, with plenty of side missions, including a good tower defense mini-game. If you're playing to get the platinum trophy, expect some extremely difficult and frustrating screaming sessions with the controller and your display. If you know what you're doing, and just wanting to finish the game, you can do it in under 10 hours. Online guides claim 60 for platinum, but I'm guessing it'll take me a bit more than that, which I'm more than happy with (so much so that I decided to buy the game via "Keep It."
