Pros:I need like 1500 words not 15!
Cons:Pretty easy, No sun's song, Graphics tend to be blurry in overworld
The Bottom Line: This game is fantastic, how does anybody not have this one? This is one of those "you better have it games" for me if you couldn't tell.
In one of the most popular series in all of gaming, The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess has a lot to live up to and it certainly does.
You begin in the small village of Ordon as a farmer boy and do a lot of things for everybody in the village just like in every Zelda. The gimmack of this Zelda is Twilight has covered all the other land and Link must transform into a Wolf in order to save Hyrule as well as being a human. This isn't really much of a gimmack because this is not the first time Link transformed to another animal as he did in A Link to the Past to become a rabbit.
Desipte the fact that this game doesn't do anything to innovative like the most other Zelda's, I find it the all around classic Zelda. It shows you the reason why everybody love Zelda games such as lots exploration, great items, and the fantastic dungeons
Speaking of dungeons, the dungeons in this game you don't want to end all of these look fantastic and are all unique. Some of which include the Temple of Time, yes the one in OoT, a Yeti's house, a really cool fire dungeon on death mountain, and even one in the sky. All being neatly designed and even the water dungeon is an amazing experience and NOT annoying. Also all the boss fights are really well done, among the best of the series, and are very epic.
Let's talk about the music and like all the music in Zelda it is well done. From the opening theme to the nostalgic feel of the last dungeon you love the music from start to finish.
What about the graphics? Well... the graphics are amazing in the dungeons! They all look good and their is a lot of details in them. In the overworld, the graphics can blurr. They blurr in Hyrule field which is the most noticable but it does blurr in places like Faron woods.
The controls work a lot better then in Skyward Sword as it is more likely to do what you want. The controls were my biggest complaint in Skyward Sword, but in Twilight Princess they work very well. Despite the fact that Skyward Sword was made for the Wii and Twilight Princess was a port because in the former no the combat was a lot more frustrating as whatever direction you wanted to swing the sword you went into a completely different direction. The hidden skills were a great addition and all work for the most part where every once in a while they do fail. The controls do not work as well as in Wind Waker, which the controls do exactly what you want everytime, but for Twilight Princess still are really good. The combat is the best and not seamless partly because of the hidden skills making it a lot more fun then in other Zeldas.
Also one of two time the support character, Midna is not annoying, but
actually kinda cool. Midna doesn't make the annoying "Hey, Listen!" sound or inturrupt you every five seconds, but has a huge part in the story and gives you a move in wolf form. She and Tatl from Majora's Mask
are the only none annoying support characters in Zelda.
Two more complaints besides the graphic ones would be it's easy and ther is no sun's song. First it is the easiest Zelda for me which I like to have some challenge and, while their is some difficult things it isn't to tough overall. Lastly there is no suns song which being as impatient as I am waiting from day to night, which is no problem in other Zeldas, is boring and, quite frankly, waiting sucks!
Overall this game is a, if you don't for some horrible reason have this game, stop reading this on go get this from Nintendo selects right now for only $20 bucks!!! Like seriously buy now!!!
