If the player attacks a Cucco enough, they will eventually take control of the Cucco. This breaks the conventions of attacking Cuccos in the Legend of Zelda series, as they would usually just get attacked by a flock of them. See more »

Worth every penny.
14 December 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Being one who has lived through all the zelda games to the current date, I can without doubt call this game a masterpiece. I bought this game on Friday, was finished on Sunday evening. I didn't leave the freaking chair, it took me a whole 37 hours to play it through. It is by far the most adrenaline-filled zelda game that has been launched, where the Wii remote takes you further into the game, living every slash, feeling every blow.

Twilight Princess is the longest game in the series, with some awesome new features, including transformation, sword skills, point-n-shoot and the best part, the combination of the remote and nunchuck. The graphics are breathtaking, whereas the engine doesn't overcharge the console, though its not as good as the xbox or the new playstation. But what the heck, its 250$ for everything, its worth it. The ingenious part of it is that Nintendo pushes the detail on graphics where they are most needed.

To the hyped zelda fanatics who has not played this game yet. The game itself is not that revolutionary compared to lengend of zelda, a link to the past or ocarina of time. But still its worth every penny, every second.

This is the BEST game i have played since ocarina time. Thats why i have given it a ten.
