The last game on Gamecube and one of the first on Wii, is an amazing link in the Zelda franchise. Learning from the cartooney graphics of The Wind Waker, the Nintendo team went back to the Ocarina of Time, slightly more adult graphic style.
In the game you play as a teenage Link rather than the traditional child. Link is a farmer in Ordon Village outside of Hyrule. One day the children are stolen and Link makes chase. He comes across a wall of Twilight and is dragged in by a Shadow Beast. Link turns into a wolf and is imprisoned in the Twilight realm. There he meets an imp called Midna who helps you escape to find Princess Zelda. Link's told that a ruler called Zant has usurped the king of the Twili and is conquering Hyrule.
With the help of Midna, Link transforms between wolf and man completing tasks and puzzles like any good Zelda game. The doggy sense of wolf Link adds a wonderful mechanic to puzzle solving, and creates amusing dialogue with animals: Epona talks.
Definitely one of the greatest games on the Cube.
This game the first thing that impressed me most was the graphics, for a gamecube game they are really pushing the limits and the graphics looked really nice. This new game in the franchise has a host of new thrills to be found.
After a strange darkness has come and shrouded the lands it becomes your job to find out the cause of all this and get to the bottom of it all. The game has a great control system as with all zelda games, however not as fun as on the wii. When it comes down to fighting with some weird looking gremlin creatures where you must mash the buttons to pull off some moves, there is not as many combos and cool moves as with the wind waker but it's still as satisfying as ever.
There are many puzzles to solve in the game, most of which will keep you perplexed for a fair while. I thought there should have been move fighting in the game. More battles and oppurtunities to fight but its still a really good game. The most part of the game is made up of several dungeons you must get through solving puzzles etc and getting to the boss to get a new item of some sort. The game is long as there is lots to do and a fairly large world to navigate.
Defaintely one I would reccomend to get
I nearly wet myself when I first saw release shots of Twilight Princess. Ocarina Of Time is arguably the best game that has ever been made and I wanted to play that again. Only this time with graphics that felt up-to-date.
Twilight Princess was supposed to be that. And yes, I did say "supposed".
I enjoyed this game ALOT. I loved the graphics, I loved the cool new weapons and equipment, I grew to love the fact that you get to be a wolf. But something is different about this game. Its lost the magic that made Ocarina of time so special. Its the little things like how everytime you where about to fight a boss in OOT you got a swish little cut scene and the boss's name appeared at the bottom. Not having a fairy flying around Link's head, the new Epona that controlled so weird AND WHY THE HELL IS LINK'S HAIR BROWN???????
This game could have been incredible, it should have been incredible. But it doesn't feel like a fairy tale anymore. All those memorable characters have been replaced by... errrm... noone?
Its a fun game to play. But its NOT Ocarina Of Time.
The Legend of Zelda - The Twilight Princess is identical on both the Nintendo Gamecube and Nintendo Wii, apart from one bizarre difference - whilst playing, they are both the mirror image of each other - weird.
If you want to get value for money from a computer game, then look no further than Zelda.
In my opinion, you can pick any Zelda game and find a greater depth of gameplay than in nearly any other mainstream game - Twilight Princess is no exception. There are so many things to do, and so many things to investigate, that this game will take many, many hours before the world of Hyrule is completely explored.
In this latest version of Zelda, a strange darkness is engulfing the land, and it's your job, as 'Link', to get to the bottom of this mysterious phenomenon.
Graphics are very good considering the limitations of the Gamecube - like I mentioned earlier, it's the same as the Wii version. Some of the textures are a bit muddy, but that doesn't take much away from the overall experience.
The control system is pretty good, but fight sequences take the form of mindless button-bashing rather than anything else. This is where the Wii version adds a bit more fun - here, you can actual slash with the motion sensitive controller, and using weapons that require you to aim by pointing at the screen are especially pleasing to use.
There are masses and masses of puzzles to solve throughout this gaming experience - some are easy, whilst the majority will have you scratching your head.
Twilight Princess is a true gaming masterpiece, with many, many, memorable moments. I can't rate this game highly enough - it's an instant classic which I recommend this to any gamer.
First of all it must be said that this game is much more difficult than it's immediate predecessor - Whether or not that's a good thing is up to you. As usual you must progress by travelling across a mystical kingdom to save it from dark forces and fight your way through dungeons. The dungeons come fairly close together and you must solve puzzles using items you collect such as boomerangs to pass through. At the end of each one you must defeat a boss of some kind, usually by attacking a hidden weak spot. These dungeons make up the bulk of the game. The rest of the game you travel through some pretty beautiful villages etc which for me is almost as much fun as the more difficult parts. The graphics are very good for the gamecube (with only a little difference between the GC and Wii versions), and the world you travel through is very impressove due to it's size. The game overall is really good and I would recommend it to anyone.
I LOVE ZELDA its a fact but i was a little dissapointed about the stroy line i know i pklayed it for 55 hours and only had 15 hearts but after you defeat the boss you need to do thye boss again WHEN WILL IT END!!! but there a lot of character eponas more realistic and you can do a lot on her e.g throm boomerangs shoot bows etc./ there is a big hook but a lot of haerd dungeons that would be almost IMPOSSIBLE without a walkthrough so if youre in a dungeon get a walkthrough it REALLY helps
bosses are easy and repetive so they can be boring
even though there are a whopping 10 temples they are easy once you get the item the mini boss has for example goron mines is SOO much easier when you get the bow or is easy to cross sand with the spinner in arbiter grounds there are a VAST array of weapons and items ill let YOU figure out the redst you wont be dissapointed
but when your snow boarding at snow peak you cant even don tricks its ridiculous all that programming
i wont give too much away but in the end cretits where midna destroys the mirror of twilight is stupid!!!!! ok i gave too much theree bvut youll understand once youve completed it if you start get ready to play for days straight a great game in my opinion so i recommend it for real zelda fans
Ive played Zelda a few times now and apart from the annoying music (turn TV down) Its great, The story line keep you amused with the inclusion of little tasks which you have to beat/finish to progress. Great for youngsters too. Almost looks like a saturday morning TV programme in its cartoon state, The puzzles do get harder as you progress and you will be screaming at the TV that it cant be done... but after a while you get to think like Zelda does and you wont be able to wait for the next level, well i couldnt anyway! :P
