Link's journeys, reinvented
Hailed by many as the best Zelda game since 1998's Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess thrusts players into a troubled world ravaged by a dangerous magic. Sporting a new, more realistic visual style than the previous Zelda title, Link looks much more like an adult than in previous installments and fits well into an environment that provides Zelda fans with a much more gritty and grim environment to explore. The entirety of the quest fits this darker mood, as both Link and NPC's alike share the same concern for the changes about in Hyrule.

More than just a spiritual successor to previous Zelda installments, Twilight Princess offers players a new way of controlling Link through dungeons, forests, towns, and the bizarre Twilight Realm: precise weapon controls with the Wii remote! Players can use the remote to control Links' weapons including the sword, arrows, and boomerang. This new control scheme allows for much faster and more accurate control than on previous Nintendo hardware. For example, waving the remote in the air will result in Link performing the same move with the sword. To fire off on arrow, players "pull back" on a virtual controller string as the Wii remote's speaker lets players know that the projectile is ready for release. It all works incredibly well and adds to the title's immersion and style- you feel more in the center of the action than in previous Zelda games.

As impressive as the new control scheme is, the scope and size of the new land of the Hyrule is equally as impressive- truly the Wii's first epic adventure. Beautifully crafted and four years in the making, the land players travel through is vast and diverse as the dungeons and monsters that lie within. As players collect triforce pieces from the distant sections of the continent, they will get to know many different villages and foes. Thankfully, Link will be able to move over long stretches of land faster thanks to "Epona," your faithful horse. Epona also helps Link become a more effective fighter, as a number of powerful and impressive sword strikes can be launched while galloping through fields of enemies.

The Twilight Realm awaits
Like most games in the Zelda franchise, Link begins his adventure with little more than the clothes he has on an an inkling that something has gone awry. After an initial trip to the Twilight Realm, in which Link appears as a wolf, a friendly shadow dweller named Midna will meet up with players and give helpful advice on gameplay. Fortunately for players, this virtual assistant spells out ways to be a more effective adventurer in and out of the shadow world. Early stages of the game have Link spending a lot of time in the Twilight Realm, and outdoor areas of Hyrule, attempting to clear areas of the strange darkness that has seemingly fallen over every village, forest, and field. As the story progresses, players will learn the cause of the shadows, and what they must to do vanquish them for good.

Puzzling puzzles
Link once again finds himself in a number of classic Zelda-esque puzzle scenarios in which he must light torches to unlock doors, raise and lower water levels, and fight enemies to collect keys and open chests for valuable rupees. A number of the dungeons present unique puzzle challenges that rely on the player's ability to hone their Wii remote's control, such as an air castle in the sky that can only be accessed by an extremely accurate grappling hook toss.

In general, Twilight Princess is more challenging than the average Zelda game, with a number of boss battles having protracted hit sequences with little support potions about, and even less warning. Still, there's never been an adventure experience such as this, wherein players can literally charge at a dungeon boss with their fists and punch the air to defeat an enormous foe. As the finest Zelda experience in almost ten years and the game fans have been waiting for, Twilight Princess will delight young and old gamers alike.

Zelda is one of the greatest franchises in gaming and for good reason. Over the past 20 plus years some of the best adventure games around have been based on one boy (Link) trying to find and save his princess (Zelda). The Zelda games have always be known for the expansive world set in Hyrule and its long adventuring and Twilight Princess is no different. Twilight Princess may be the biggest Zelda game to date and the world is rendered in generally beautiful environments. Some of the textures can be rough but overall, even though its been out for 4.5 years now it's still a beautiful product.

Zelda, and Nintendo games in ganeral have always been about gameplay and Twilight Princess gives a great offering in this department as well. The puzzles and dungeons are excellent and the stunning boss fights will leave you breathless. There are some control flaws as you can tell motion control wasn't quite figured out yet at the time. To swing Link's sword, which is a very common action, you "waggle" the Wii remote. It's not as precise or immersing as a motion plus game like Red Steel 2 or the upcoming Skyward Sword but it gets the job done and you won't become exhausted or anything like that.

Also, some new gameplay mechanics are thrown in there. I don't want to give out any spoilers but I'll just say Link has some transformations that mix up the gameplay.

Lastly, this re-release at $20 is an excellent value. To beat the game is well over 20 hours your first time through so you're defintley getting your money's worth. Twilight Princess was a launch title on Wii and originally a Gamecube game (though it came out for Wii first) and it shows in some parts.

With the benefit of retrospection, it's easy to assume that this game may very well be the last of a pure type of Zelda breed. Skyward Sword has come and gone, and has seemingly ushered in a new era of design ideas for future Zelda releases. That said, for those who believe that Ocarina of Time is among the greatest games of all time, this is a game for you. For just as Ocarina of Time introduced an amazing template for a "classical" 3D Zelda experience, Twilight Princess took that template design and sharpened it to an unimaginable gleam. This is an incredible game, even today still, and now that it is a "Nintendo Select," there's no better time to get into it.

The story in Twilight Princess really hearkens back to a classic Nintendo theme of duality. Much like the dual-timelines of Ocarina of Time, or the Light/Dark World of A Link to the Past, there are two dimensions at play here. Link is a young man living in the peaceful, forested Ordon providence near Hyrule, in a small village. Here he lives a peaceful life with his fellow villagers, making a living on the famous Ordon Goat Ranch. Meanwhile, the light soaked kingdom of Hyrule has been invaded by beings from another dimension called the Twilight realm, their king a creepy villain named Zant. Zant's plan is to combine his world of Shadow with Hyrule, creating a dark, twisted reality for him to control.

I've just finished playing the game and being still under euphoria, decided to write this review to share my thoughts and feelings.

The first thing I liked about this game is that the game is VERY long. It took me almost 60 hours or 2 months to finally beat the game.

The second is graphics. Knowing a bit modest graphics capability of Wii, the game is very beautiful and - the most important - mature-looking. Comparing this game's graphics to the ones of the previous Zelda titles (which I saw only on screenshots, to be honest..), this game looks almost like a movie rather than like cartoon.

The third thing is the plot. After a slow beginning, which is kinda training section, the actual game begins and after each mission newer and newer details and even shocking secrets being revealed.

The fourth is the gameplay. You can do literally everything in this game. You wouldn't just walk around and kill enemies. Not in this game =) Literally every next step you'll think what to do next. And of course the huge free-roaming game world full of interesting stuff like collectible items, puzzles, secrets and side quests.

For my shame, I never played any Zelda game before. But after this game I am sure I will. This game was the real reason for me to become a Zelda fan.

I strictly recomment this game for everyone who likes adventure genre. You will not be disappointed.
Beleive me.

If you are inquiring as to whether this game is good, it is phenomenal. It is a long game, and it is a beautiful game. This new $20 Nintendo Selects deal is the best video game deal I have seen in regards to this game being one of the games available for $20.
