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!! :)

When first hearing about this game I couldn't believe how some gaming sites gave this game an average score. It has taken me over 50 hours to get to a point of complete utter hatred for the Wii. I keep finding my self wanting to love this game, I love playing Zelda, I grew up with the original Nintendo. But in no other game has it become so evident why the Wii, and motion control for that matter, will never be used for hardcore gaming. You NEED a second analog stick for the camera!!! 1 to 1 is not always a good thing, I could not stand the flying and swimming sections of the game so much so that I had to force myself to continue. There would be times I was collecting tad songs that Link turned every way BUT the direction I wanted him to go. Sword slashing is fun but the glitches in the controls make it more of a novelty than a genuine tool. Zelda was not a good franchise to experiment with....

It was okay..... but, the graphics weren't as good as I thought and it didn't have as much of a plot than I thought. But, the Wii Motion Plus helped the game a load, with the action/fighting great!!!!!! So all in out, it was pretty fair because graphics weren't that great, not much of a plot, but, it has great action.
