3 out of 5 eggs1st Zelda let down

Pros: um.....I can't think of any

Cons: this game is a rip off of windwaker and twilight.
cartoon style graphics and crayon color, just as windwaker.
the controls are extremely bad.

Other Thoughts: plus y is the story depicting zelda having romantic feelings for link? its has already been reviled to everybody on the N64 that they are blood related. "in the past this may have worked but now that's just sick by most people"

also y is a specific sword swing required do defeat the local monsters?

5 out of 5 eggsThe Game Rules

Pros: It's a Zelda game...
Sword Battles with the wii remote are awesome. Slice diagonal left right, down to up, where ever you want. Wii plus remote works awesomely. Enemies require perfect timing and accuracy of your sword. Oh and its really fun.

Cons: Its a little faster than other zelda games. Link can run fast, do a wall walk to grab ledges and has a stamina meter. You get used to it and it really isn't a con. Its actually awesome, but it is different.
Using some items will off center the remote. But you just push down arrow to recenter. Sometimes you have to recenter alot. You get used to it.

Other Thoughts: New egg rules.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great game, at least my wife says so. I've not had the chance to play it.... wife's been playing the whole time since we got it at release. Very long game.

Cons: Graphics not nearly as nice looking as twilight princess but it has it's own distinct look, kinda cartoon like

Other Thoughts: Overall a very good game and well worth the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: NOTE: This is my first Zelda game, so my review is just on this game alone and not in comparison with the other games.

I loved it. The graphics were awesome, the music was pretty (and fit well with whatever you were doing. It made me nervous during battles which was effective). My husband and I bought this game for Christmas, and we keep fighting over who gets to play it haha we just love it. There are so many dynamic things to do with the wii control and nun-chuck that make the fighting and general game interaction so much more engaging.

Cons: Some of the things are hard to see. Like for instance, there was a ledge I needed to grab onto, and I finally had to go find a walkthrough, and even when I got to the place, I still couldn't see the ledge and just had to jump and hope it was there. However, this may be a resolution problem with my TV or wii, not necessarily the game.

Also, and again this may be a wii problem, the wii controller is hard to use for some things. With certain enemies, you have to stab or swing a certain way in order to kill it. But even though I kept stabbing (forward-thrust motion), Link was still swinging at an angle, not stabbing.

Other Thoughts: All in all though, I thought it as a great game, and I was very impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: This is a great game, the story is very well told and is intriguing. The graphics are very well done, combining Wind Waker's cell shading with Twilight Princess' realistics.

Cons: Ran out of Limited Edition Gold WiiMote copies before i could pick up this game. Was really wanting that WiiMote. The game also requires a Wii Motion Plus, was disappointed when i couldn't find that limited edition.

Other Thoughts: My version came with the 25th Anniversary Symphony CD (limited edition?) and I can tell you it's very well done. The music is absolutely beautiful.

5 out of 5 eggsMasterpiece

Pros: I don't know why there are low eggs on this game. THIS TITLE IS A MASTERPIECE!!!! Using motion plus controls does not get in the way.
The soundtrack is amazing. The story is amazing. This game shows us that there is, in fact a future for motion controls.

Cons: NONE!!

Other Thoughts: Some people should not be allowed to write reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsWasn't Playable

Pros: This is empty because the game isn't playable on my end!

Cons: Had no idea the game wasn't playable with the ordinary Wii Remote. Ordered the game by itself on newegg for my mother-in-law. The start-up screen tells the user to place the Remote and Nunchuk on the ground. Totally didn't know we'd be sitting on that screen indefinitely since neither of us knew the game REQUIRES the Wii RemotePlus.

Other Thoughts: Had there been any specification on the order screen or warning of some sort that the game is a coffee table coaster without the Wii RemotePlus I certainly wouldn't have ordered the game off newegg.
I would have undoubtedly ordered the bundle that included the golden Wii RemotePlus along with the game for $70 from WalMart otherwise.

Can't even return the game now. Forced to go out and buy the controller separately. That's money lost and my loyalty as a customer. I really liked newegg before this. Too shame.
