This game rocks.
4 January 2007 | by (Chattanooga, TN) – See all my reviews

There's a guy who made a comment about this game boasting that it wasn't very interactive upon character-to-character meetings, the wii-mote made fighting difficult, and the camera angles were bad. He's overly-opinionated. I'm a huge Zelda fan, and when this game was released, I was expecting nothing less than perfect, especially considering all the hype, and countless delays that it underwent. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. After finishing it last night, I can still attest to the fact that this game rocks. The wii-mote control is near-flawless, the camera was spectacular, the learning curve for the control did not take long at all, the storyline was VERY deep, the final battle was epic, and the games visuals are top-notch, especially considering it was built for Gamecube hardware. I'd say that if there were a single flaw in this game, it would be the lack of voice-work....that would have been nice, but hell...I can read. This game is amazing...greatest game I've ever played. If you don't own it, do so immediately.
