Advantages: Sword-Fighting, Very fews bugs or glitches
Disadvantages: Somewhat childish
First of all, I'd like to say that the action of this game felt perfect. Sword fighting was very fun, and didn't get repetative easily. This game also has a lot of new or classic puzzles that make Zelda games fun to play. I'm not too keen on cel-shaded graphics but they seemed to fit in here, making it a perfect cartoon. However, despite all these pros, the biggest con was that it just didn't 'feel' like Zelda. Previous Zelda games seemed targetted towards a more mature audience, though this game tended to be aimed at younger children, to encourage them to buy this and other Nintendo-brand games. Nintendo have been doing this quite a lot recently, with games having a more childish appeal. Though there was a Second Quest option for replayability, this game took me about 3 days to complete. Cons aside, this is a good, seemingly-endless game that is fun to play, and good value for money.
