Interesting look at one of the more debated titles in the Zelda series. I for one never finished the game due in part to a lot of what is addressed here.
I don't remember anything from that game.
It was kinda boring actually... I beat it though... Trying to beat it again...
There weremany failures
Hopefully Skyward Sword is a return to form.
I enjoyed roaming through Hyrule field, as I always do, but... It wasn't the most memorable of the Zelda titles.
I always felt Twilight Princess was actually really good. I don't get all the hate it seems to get. It gets more than Windwaker did before it came out.
Huh... maybe I should finish the game before reading this. I got bored with it pretty quickly.
I trucked through Twilight Princess with the expectation at each temple that magic would be introduced only to realize near the end of the game that there was no magic. This isn't so much of a failure, but that realization left a sour taste. Twilight Princess was good, but it didn't feel as inspired as Windwaker or Majora's Mask. Those two games were simply amazing as they took a the Zelda formula and really tried some something different. Majora's Mask was a very special game to me as it is one of the few that manage to feel alive. The residents of Termina rather than randomly walk like most NPCs are programmed convincingly to live out 3 days. Despite being 2 console generations after that game, I haven't seen a game that has felt as alive.
Twilight Princess was amazing. The gameplay was the best of each Zelda titles and the combat system was so much improved from Wind Waker. The last dungeon is epic battle after battle to the big boss himself. The only things it could have done better for me was one, to focus the story more on the core characters of Link, Zelda and Ganon. They drive Zelda storylines. The most fondly remembered Zelda titles, OoT and ironically WW, featured them as the core storyline. TP used them more as a symbol than anything while Midna (some rodent) took center stage. The other bad aspect of TP was the wolf parts, they were so bad and boring. It's never good when you're playing a section of a game that just feels like filler until you can wield a sword again.
Dude is because Midna is the Twilight Princess and how's the game called??
Oh sod off. The game was amazing as every Zelda title is. I played it again last christmas and it was even better than the first time i played it. But I really do miss Wind waker and Link`s awakening and A link to the past and Ocarina of time and Majoras Mask.
I think this game had the most epic Ganondorf sequence. I don't remember that much from TP or WW actually but they are still for me mindblowing games just not in the Zelda franchise. To me Ocarina and Majora are the best ones. I hope Skyward Sword lives up to my expectations!
Wind Waker ending spoiler... The ending of Wind Waker was quite sad. You watch Hyrule that is under the ocean lose its protective bubble and flood. The King who was Link's boat throughout the game chooses stay behind in his land despite this.
Twilight Princess is the best zelda game i ever played. Let me explain why 1.Windwaker and Majora's Mask aren't traditional zelda games so comparing them to traditional zelda games is a little unfair(That's like saying paper mario is better then mario platformers yo may think that but comparing to types of gameplay is not a fair comparsion) 2.The Difficulty isn't as bad as People say I won't claim it's majora's mask hard but it's certainally not the easiest zelda game imo 3.The Story was great The only zelda game that comes close Is windwaker and oot 4.TP Was the first zelda game i felt Was different enough from oot(wolf link the dugeon iteams darker tone) yet not too different(ww would of been fine if the sailing part wasn't forced on you more then half the game the save with mm's 3 day system the reason i don't like them is because you're forced to deal with them the ENTIRE game if it was less then half the game like oot's child link or tp's wolf link it would be different)
Harsh. I liked Twilight Princess. It is not my favorite Zelda title, however, it is easily in the top 5. For a Gamecube game the the art style and graphics were absolutely gorgeous. And how can you say that there are no memorable dungeons...what about the last 3? Sky Temple, Twilight Temple, and Hyrule Castle were nothing short of epic!
