Did You Know?


Ganandorf makes his appearance very late in to the game. We do not see him for the first time until the after the 8th dungeon is completed. See more »


Any time Link is using the magnetic boots to walk on the ceiling, his clothes remain the same as if he was standing on the ground, that is, gravity does not seem to affect them. The only exception to this is in the Death Mountain dungeon, when Link is being carried by the magnetic cranes, when his hat does hang down. See more »

The Greatest Zelda Adventure Yet!
2 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the Zelda franchise, and I was very excited when I heard about this game on the Wii; I must say that the game delivered a grander adventure than I ever dreamed it could of. The story of Twilight Princess (I won't spoil any of it for those who haven't played it) is simply breathtaking, it has heart and emotion; the script for the game was marvelous, the whole story was just very cinematic and magical. A great addition to the story is being able to play as Link when he transforms into a wolf, and that is all I'll say about it, it's really fun. The biggest concern from most gamers were the controls which after playing the game are just perfectly suited for the Zelda franchise, swinging the wiimote as a sword never gets old. One of the greatest things about the game is the wide array of side quests. Zelda has always been known for its many side quests and this one delivers, you will be playing this game long after you've finished it to complete them all. Finally the graphics are just superb and need to be seen in action to believe.

This is a Zelda adventure that appeals to both old fans and new, it moves the franchise forward into shining new directions without alienating the old fans. I have played many of the big games on the Wii like Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 and I must say that I still enjoyed this game the most thus far. This is the best game on the Wii.

A perfect 10/10!
