Ocarina Of Time DeThroned
9 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Until 2006 Ocarina was the only Zelda game to really be reckoned with, in the grand scheme of gaming. Thats all changed with Twilight Princess.

Link is back (at full height unlike certain games i shan't mention, *cough* wind waker*) and looking better than ever. Hyrule is captured in breathtaking graphics, as you play you'll end up in familiar locations from OOT looking much better than you remembered.

Swordplay is much improved from Wind Waker, finally, its taken a while...but Link has big swords to play with again !!! Much to my tastes, fighting takes more skill than it did in Wind Waker; remember certain moves in WW which you could perform by simply pressing A when the screen flashed ? Yeah ? Well those moves are now secret, unlocked by hard work and take more than just a flashing button to pull off.

Dungeons are inventive and will have you scratching your head in puzzlement, though fairly linear in design (which some may not like) they aren't a walk a park but also don't require a masters degree to fathom. Certain enemies you encounter will have you going "OOOOH i remember these guys" as old bad guys from OOT make appearances.

You may be thinking hmmmm is this just Ocarina of Time 2? NO its not. TP comes into its own from the start, this has a much different feel to previous Zeldas, much darker and deeper than ever before. An excellent storyline which does intertwine with OOT but definitely not a sequel.

An excellent game. Best I've played in a long time.

PS i own the NGC version so i cant really make comments on control aspects as the majority of buyers for this game will probably be Wii
