The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Preview

People have been begging for it. We're talking like the old days, back in the days of The Ocarina of Time. A follow-up in The Legend of Zelda series that was worthy of that N64 title, and not just some passerby game that tried to inject some originality into the formula, like the kiddie-transformed Link in The Wind Waker or the Expansion Pak-fueled Majora's Mask. No, we're talking about the need for a full-on Zelda adventure that makes us remember, no, cherish the brand the way we did back on the NES and on the SNES, and with Ocarina. And we waited and waited and waited some more upon the announced Twilight Princess for GameCube/Wii, and it's finally looking like it will surface this fall.

This is why I'm going to purchase the Wii. Plus some other interesting games. But this Right here and Smash Brothers is what convince me.

Dmac6554d ago

I owned Ocarina of Time and still to this day haven't played a game that the story completly blew me away like it did. MGS3 was my next pick. I plan on buying the PS3, but would really like to pick up the Wii just for this game.

Marriot VP6553d ago

Having to use a remote just dumbs down the detail on aiming and stuff. Not my type sorry. I don't think any game they came out with would make me get it.

UltimateGamer2308236553d ago

Ocarina of time was my favorie game growin up with the N64. Your right Dmac i havnt fount a game with a fantastic story line like it.. I can only hope this time around they can match the with just as good of a storyline, even somewhat, anything close would make me happy.

Legionaire20056553d ago

This could be the one of the greatest games since Ocarina of time. Wow what a great storyline that game had, can't wait for this one though.

Man!!! Look... There’s something wrong with every system we all no that like for one Xbox controller is to bulky, second PS can't come up with there own idea's OH' Yeah! They also have a George Foreman Grill as a there console system, third Nintendo has an updated infer red pen as the controller well!! I mean remote controller.
So waving your hand side by side is a problem you must have no arms/ or you are over weight/ or maybe you just think you'll look so dumb swinging' your arms around with the windows or the curtains open. “Nope you won't be” you'll look normal because 93% of people out of a 100% of people actually talk to there selves, so your no different from us or might I say Wii. Listen Xbox you move your hands, PS you move your hands, so Wii move our hands, any way that’s what makes us Unique, Wii all our Different..... LOL)

Twilight Princess’ Hyrule Field Is Boring, Empty, And Excellent

TheGamer Writes "In my experience, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess’ once-warm reception has chilled somewhat over the years. Praised at launch as a beautiful return to form after the “childish” art style of its direct predecessor, the world eagerly embraced a game that more closely followed Ocarina of Time’s famous structure and plot cues. Perhaps most alluringly of all, the grandeur and sheer scope of this reimagined Hyrule Field wowed millions of us."

I am a huge Zelda fan and love them all, but for me Ocarina Of Time is the greatest and my second all time favourite game after Final Fantasy VII.

LoveSpuds642d ago (Edited 642d ago )

You sir, have good taste in games :)

I also love all of the Zelda games but I adore Windwaker (Specifically the HD version on WiiU) most of all. It is a close run thing with Breath of the Wild though.

Special mention to Cadence of Hyrule too, what an awesome spin off title that was!

GaboonViper641d ago

Cheers Spuds, yep i love Windwaker too, beautiful artstyle, and i loved sailing and finding all the secrets out there.

blackbeld641d ago

Agreed. For me top 3 of all time is.

1. ocarina of time
2. Final fantasy Vll
3. MGS1

GaboonViper641d ago

Brilliant top 3, would love a MGS1 remake that has been rumoured.

LoveSpuds641d ago

Yup, hard to argue with that top 3 squire, some quality games right there!

-Foxtrot643d ago

Oh gee can't imagine what Number 1 is

....

A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker etc is better than Breath of the Wild.

lockedongamer1643d ago

I respectfully disagree, but they're all great games.

porkChop643d ago

I think it really depends on what you're looking for. If you want a traditional Zelda game then OoT or WW would be better to you. But if you want a Zelda game that really leans into adventure and exploration, and if you want intelligent systems/logic, BotW would be the better game.

I enjoy both. I understand why some people aren't fond of it but for me it was a breath of fresh air that I really needed. I'd become so burnt out on unimaginative games and BotW sort of made me appreciate games again, as weird as that may sound.

godofboobees642d ago

Those are not traditional Zelda games

Crows90642d ago

Right...so let's pretend ocarina of time didnt have exploration, secret dungeons and other secrets. Complex boss mechanics and exploration rewards. At least a traditional Zelda has dungeons.

porkChop641d ago

What point are you attempting to make? At no point did I say that OoT didn't have any of that. However, the level of exploration and sense of adventure are vastly different between OoT and BotW.

Brazz642d ago

Breath of the Wild is overrated as shot, Wind waker is much better.

P_Bomb642d ago

I’m a Link to the Past guy.

MadLad642d ago

Majora's Mask still holds as my favorite to this day, despite being the black sheep of the series.

pietro1212642d ago

I love them all, but Wind Walker, Link to the Past and Minish Cap are my favorites

John_McClane641d ago

Link to the Past was so, so good! Those chickens though! 🤣
