not bad, looks playable.

Joule3042d ago

Definitely not bad considering the game comes out next year.

pwnzter3041d ago

my brother had bought a wii some time before twilight princess came out. he then sold it. i was going to buy a wii just for the new zelda, but when i saw the way it looked at this year's e3, i said, f*ck this sh*t. i am not impressed and i'm not buying a wii.

NeutralGamer3041d ago

This E3 was Nintendos E3 what the hell are you talking about?

EvilTwin3041d ago

Well yes, certainly playable. But the 1:1 movement doesn't mean much for combat. Watch any of the actual scenes where there's fighting, like:

Looks closer to RS2 (which is more like "1:practical"), in that respect, but with less lag and in third person.

Think no Evil? warming up to it? ; )

EvilTwin3041d ago

Heh, I'm getting there, amigo. The combat has me sold, tbh. One problem I have with RS2 is the sheer volume of moves; if I leave it out of the Wii for two weeks, I have to reteach myself how to play. This Zelda doesn't look like that'll be the case. It's all about slashing through the open/weak spots of enemies.

The art style...well, I'm slowly warming to it. ; )

I hate how Link copies your every movement. He looks so weird running around with his sword pointing out like a lance.

Shoko3042d ago

Agreed. I like the idea of 1:1 sword fighting, but Link just looks so weird running around with his sword pointed out in front of him.

Mantiz3041d ago

Couldn't you just hold the sword at your side and link would too ?

Tikicobra3041d ago

That's a poor solution. When I play the Wii, I always hold the wii remote in front of me. It's just more comfortable that way.

Millah3041d ago

Well then put the sword away when you're not using it. Very simple. You don't have to run around with the sword drawn constantly.

Fierce Musashi3042d ago (Edited 3042d ago )

They should have made some sort of sword mode where you hold a button for the 1:1 motion and gave him a default fighting stance for when you're not holding it.

Just an idea.

SpoonyRedMage3042d ago

If you put the sword away he has a default running stance because it stops tracking you.

But it's the price you pay for 1:1

NecrumSlavery3041d ago

I was under the impression that whent the wiimote is pointing at the screen it's not in swordplay mode until you jab, stab, etc.

ChickeyCantor3041d ago (Edited 3041d ago )

Holding a button takes away the concept of having the sword in your hand. Its not even making sense. Dont you just wanna swing away?

Every 3D Zelda game has a command to allow you to sheath the sword. This one is no different.

rumplstilts3042d ago

Aside from minor lag it looks very good.

Spenok3041d ago

The lag is very very minor. Nothing compared to Kinect, (im not trying to troll about it, just merely pointing out facts) This is very pretty good. Being a self proclaimed Zelda fanboy, i cant wait.

chrisgay3041d ago

Very good indeed, the demo at E3 was so disappointing, but videos I've watched since have proven otherwise.
