Some Control Issues

The storyline and graphics in this game are amazing. I wish I could have experienced more of it but I found the controls to be annoying. I'm very glad I didn't spend the 50 dollars to actually own the game because I couldn't have gotten over it. The balance is hard, the remote constantly loses center and the swordplay is extremely difficult to master. Hopefully they will release a version that is playable with a different control scheme, maybe a classic or tilted.

Not that great

I felt the graphics were a bit too cartoon like for my taste. Why this might be ok for kids, I don't like it. It didn't have the same feel as the other Zelda games to me. I felt it was quite lacking. The story wasn't too bad, but I would like to be able to skip some of the cut scenes. Not horrible, but not great either.

It's NOT the best zelda!

I'm sick of hearing this is the best zelda of the series. It's really just okay. I hate the fact that it's said the graphics are the best yet. They're not, I don't understand why they went with the toonish look but I think it's boring and makes the game feel immature. The controls may seem cool, but it's really not. They get really annoying when they don't do what you want it to. What happened to sitting back and relaxing to a video game, not swinging around a dumb remote and constanlty pointing at the screen trying to correct the faulty thing. The story is fine I guess nothing special. The stamina is annoying, I mean who poops out after running for 5 seconds. Your constantly going back to a forest, a volcano, a desert, and one town in the sky. The dialogue is so cheesy and stupid, looks like an elementary kid wrote it. And it is so annoying when you pick up an item you've found a hundred times, and it zooms in to tell you about it like it's your first time picking it up. It was very disappointing for me, I love zelda series and ever since the Wii they're not the same. Majora's mask is still the best!! :)
