Not done with the game yet, there is too much to tell. But I won't spoil it. The exploration is fantastic. Crafting is a great addition to the series. I don't care what anyone says about Fi, the new assistant to link in the game. She is awesome. If you don't mind I suggest you get the strategy guide, but don't read ahead and ruin it. Instead, go to the part you just completed sect by sect and have fun with it. You will not beat this in a couple of days. This is meant to tie you down with awesome lands to explore. Have fun.

the best zelda game ever

this game is my all time favorite zelda game. if someone says the motion controls suck, then they are lying to themselves and you. the controls are done so precisely that it brings you into the game better than the graphics in any other game do. the amazing this is, is you still get to sit down and semi eat your favorite chips/food while playing it.this game is the perfect example of what the wii should have had in the first place. the only problem is you have to recalabrate every so often, but its just a click of a button and you get back to the game

the graphics bring you into an amazing painting, and somehow things still come alive. the sky is as blue as ours and the characters look better than anything in real life. if you think the graphics suck, then my responce is you probly just hate the art. most people dont know that graphics are mainly the polygon count and the texture, and this game has both and the most vivid colors in any zelda game. and who wants real life graphics, honestly, im already in real life so i dont want an experiance i can get from this world. no i want the zelda world.

the story is absolutly amazing. its basically what every zelda fan has been waiting for. it just unlocks so many secrets unrevieled until this game. also this game is a step up from twilight princess, and thats not opinion people, thats the fact whether you like it or not.

the gameplay is amazing. each enemy is no longer killed with one hit of the sword. no you have to go hard with the controls and every enemy is a puzzle. no joke. also the dungeons are very difficult and i often got stuck, but i love getting stuck, i cant figure out why. and the side quest no longer make you back track as much as a zelda game before this. which is a great thing really. and you do go to the faron woods a lot but its different every time, when you go to there the 3rd time ITS FLOODED and thats just amazing really.

overall i cant find much to hate on. this is the best game ever

was a little disappoint that I need the motion plus thing to play the game (didn't read all the info about the game, was excited to play the newest Zelda game). After spending $18 to get a used adapter for the motion plus. I'm now on my way to saving Zelda.. Love this game! The new controls took a bit to get used too though. But after that it great! Just wish I could find or learn how swim under water! Guess that later in the game!
