Fair

Dissapointing

i spent maybe 6 hours playing this game. its by far the easiest zelda game ive ever played. dungeons were too simple and boss fights took less than a minute to fight even on a first try. i personally only died once and it was at the end of the game and i had already purchased every item. the puzzles in this game were simple not hard to follow and the "twist" ending could be seen from miles away by anyone. m night shymalan could do better honestly. i give the game a 5 and thats for its art design and quick responding controls. not worth buying but worth renting if its shipping time is short.

The Zelda Franchise is a big named game series that ha done a lot of gimmicky stuff over the years.. And this game proves that the older formula of exploration is still timeless in and of itself... The game adapted something almost new by allowing players to gain access to the various tools early on, but something like it has been tried before but that was back in the 8 bit Zelda game.. The stamina gauge is a new take on tools that lends a new look on how the tools can be more efficiently used both in combat and in exploration.. This game is an alright sort of game but it is rather short, though I only got it a couple of days ago and I already beat it.. It is still worth owning, but i think i will wait for the price to drop since I already finished it.. Try Before you buy..

Good

Kind of a letdown.

Don't get me wrong, this is a really good game. I liked how you get to choose what dungeon you want to go to (Take notes Pokemon), I liked the energy meter mechanic, I had a lot of fun moving through the walls, The side quests were fun, and the story was really good. However, from all the hype that this game got, I really expected more. Most of the dungeons in the game just weren't that good (especially the lava dungeon >_<). I still had fun with most of them, but they just weren't as innovative as dungeons in previous games, and the same could be said for most of the bosses as well. And speaking of bosses, the final phase against Yuga Gannon was a HUGE letdown for me.
Don't get me wrong, I do like this game and I encourage fans of the series to try it out, but it was just disapointing for me.
