    I thought it was an okay game as soon as you got past the unholy long intro, the big put-off was without a doubt the wolf form. As soon as I got out of it the first time I was so relieved. As soon as Midna said that I'd turn into it again, I put the game on the shelf and haven't played it since.

    The beginning can be a bit slow, but once you get out of the woods the game starts to pick up a lot. Pretty lengthy game with tons of sidequests and dungeons and such.

    Easily my favorite zelda game, and I've played every singe one.

    It seems about as long as OoT. But, yes, the beginning is really slow going.

    It actually is my favorite Zelda (Although to be fair I haven't played Skyward Sword). Just make sure to play it with a Gamecube controller if you are using the Wii version. Its not that big of a difference, but I found it more enjoyable. I also really like Zant as a villain. (Not really a spoiler, you find out about him very early on). I'm not sure why people are so against the Wolf form parts of the game. Its not like they're very long segments, and they control quite well.

    I love the art style and the darker tone. The main reason I haven't picked up SS is because I hate the semi-cell shading style that it has. I'm hoping Zelda U takes a style more like the Wii U tech demo (Which is amazingggggg) and be darker.

    Can you even use the Gamecube controller on the Wii version? If you put the GC disc in the Wii then yea, but Skelington is pretty sure you can't with the Wii disc.

    While I thoroughly enjoyed TP, it's a very mediocre Zelda game. Pretty much every issue with it has been discussed. It takes forever to get into, and honestly the whole game feels like it was made to appease the people who bitched about Wind Waker being "too different" from OoT and MM (even though after TP came out they claimed WW was amazing and they want more different stuff). However, I feel it's still worth playing. If you can, play the gamecube version.

    I could have sworn you could. I didn't, only because at the time my Gamecube was in storage.

    the game has a slow start to it. the world is a bit bigger than ocarina of time but not by a lot. it's only slightly longer than ocarina of time. its also much easier. i would rank it personally below ocarina of time but above majora's mask. and definitely above windwaker.

    Awesome game, fantastic dungeons, fantastic art, fantastic music. Game length is about perfect, in my opinion. If you liked OoT you should like TP since it's the same land at a different time and the references to OoT are *everywhere.*

    The only main fault with the game, in my opinion, was that it was just too easy. Considering it was one of the first major motion control experiments, I don't hold it against Nintendo much.

    Like others said, the intro is pretty slow and but after the first dungeon it get's better. If I remember right it get's much better after the first 3 dungeons but if you like Zelda then you should have no problem with this game since it's practically one long love letter to the franchise (albeit still unique in it's own ways).
    "Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"

    By the way for any of you who didn't know... I'm a huge WW fan, stated this quite a few times on any Zelda thread. I'll give it a try when I don't have work and I do own the game for Wii but really just wanted to play it on the PC so I downloaded a ROM (legal if you physically own the game for the console) and am going to play it with an Xbox Controller. I'm just hoping I can get to the good parts of the game fast because that's the problem with a lot of Zelda games for me. The cutscenes are great and all but sometimes I just want to say "I get it, I get it, can I skip this now".

    Honestly that's why I think I like WW so much, it's cuts out a lot of the bullshit after Outset Island and you're off on an adventure.
    You've probably never heard of him.

    TP is a darker OoT without kid Link. The ending might be slow buts my favorite Zelda.

    Recent Zeldas (all 3D Zeldas, culminating with Skyward Sword) are very slow in the beginning as it introduces you to the game. However if you can force yourself through this several hours long opening tutorial (this is Nintendo's biggest flaw as far as I am concerned) you will find a really great, long, bang-for-buck game within.

    The boss fights in Twilight's Princess are stellar imo, you just have to get to them. Plus for the first time the story is well executed.

    No spoilers please.
    It's pretty much a re-tuned OoT, with about the same overall length.

    It was pretty good, for a Zelda game at any rate. Lower than Majora's Mask, probably a tiny bit higher than OoT.

    Try playing without the shield and you'll have a fun time!
    Especially versus the knight mini-bosses.

    eeeeeeh, i wouldn't recomend that. i did the same thing and i must say, the graphics are a huge step back with an emu. the faces are more jagged and the eyes.... good lord the eyes, they look like a black fuzzy film is placed over them making the eyes pop to creepy levels.

    i would say just use the wii version, thats what i have and my only problem with it is controller sensitivity and batteries.

    i tried fiddling with it and i couldn't find a fix and what i did try slowed it down a lot. but then again i know almost nothing on how to fix it anyway.

    Edit: I'm using dolphin if that helps with a fix

    It has a much slower start than any other Zelda title, that's for sure. It'll be hours before you enter your first dungeon.

    As far as how good the game is...it's not a bad Zelda by any means. Much better than Skyward Sword, that's for sure. It's definitely the longest Zelda, by far at that. However it is lacking in a couple areas. Some of the items are kind of silly and so incredibly situational that you'll wonder why they didn't take the item from you at the end of the dungeon you received it in. The sidequests are mediocre. Despite those flaws, it's a nice, dark adventure.
