There was one challenge (for me) in the game toward the frontend the rest was bordering simplistic. Don't get me wrong it was a fun game but the Zelda experiences are fun because of the challenges they provide-it's the reason we all keep playing.

I became a new gamefly member a few months back and when our first game arrived Zelda the game was damaged and did not play. I did not have a home computer and was unabe to find the answers I needed to fix the problem on my android phone so I was not sure what to do, then I got some info from a friend that said just send it back to the company so I went to send it back and realized that I lost the envelope to send the game back to gamefly.
To make a long story short (too late) a new member has a membership they are paying for a total of 3 or more months and we only got one game that never worked and now finally we will be able to return the game to the company. Thank goodness there are no late charges cause I would owe them a bundle.
I undertand that none of the troubles I had were the fault of gamefly except the game never working, but it may have helped with there website was more mobile phone friendly.
Thank goodness we got a home computer otherwise we would still be wondering how to fix the problem.

This Zelda game has to be the most frustrating I have played in the series. The Wii Motion Plus is supposed to allow for greater motion control but ends up frustrating more than anything.

It will CONSTANTLY go off center, which is very inconvenient when you have time based puzzles or are in the middle of a boss fight. It will go off center if you:

1. Choose different equipment
2. Shake the controller too hard
3. Pause the game
4. Let the Wii controller go to sleep
5. Put the Wii controller at any angle
6. Move to a new section of the dungeon

The list goes on. You can literally put the controller down, and when you pick it back up it will be skewed off center.

This wouldn't be a big issue except the game requires you to perform motions that needs you to be "on center." Very frustrating when that rarely is the case.

Others have said they just look at re-centering as part of the game and got used to it. I disagree with that statement. If you need to constantly be calibrating the controller, it takes away from the gameplay experience.

I would have most likely enjoyed this game much more had they just left Wii Motion Plus out of it.
