Good

Good but short

It took me only one day to get through the story. Though there was more that could be done throughout the game I felt there was no point, collecting more of the ore or finding other items would not help much when I already have gotten through all the dungeons and explored a lot of the land. There was no real set order in which to do things so I wound up getting the gauntlet to lift the big rocks last and I really did not feel like walking all over looking for hidden treasure beneath all the rocks in both worlds. But the general game, though only a day's worth of play was very fun and the story line, as with every zelda game, was great.

rehashing old games is fine for lining their pocket books but it's not going to make the big push they need to get back in the video gaming limelight. they need to come out with NEW content to compete with the dominant FPS games on playstation.

i made it all the way to Lorule but quickly got bored. i'd much rather play the REAL version of this game that game out on SNES years ago. I am a huge zelda fan but this franchise needs NEW content not more remakes

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..
