Definitely the best game on the Wii
27 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I just got this game for Christmas, and I've only played up to the first dungeon. My first impressions are that the beginning starts out rather slow, but the pace quickens once you get near a dungeon. The art style is beautiful, with only a few bad textures and models. There is a background filter to make all background objects look like an actual painting. The music is a first for a Zelda game-it is finally played by an actual orchestra. Many of the themes are highly atmospheric or just plain epic, especially later tracks (I spoiled myself before I got this game). From what I've seen, the cutscenes are some of the best in the series. and are very cinematic, with all animations motion-captured with live actors. Facial animations are also amazing, and the end results are highly lifelike cutscenes. I highly recommend this game. Please note that you must have a Wii Remote Plus or the Wii MotionPlus add-on in order to play this game. This game only runs in widescreen 16:9.
