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.
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.

However... With all that said Amazon and the seller were really great about the whole thing. No one likes getting stuff that doesnt work but when the customer service is on point it makes it a ton better.
I would definetly buy from this seller again.
Our story begins in the land of Hyrule in the small village of Ordon. A young man of seventeen embarks on a journey to save his friends, others, and ultimately the entire land, when evil from the land of Twilight envelopes the kingdom, turning it into perpetual twilight, where light ceases to exist...
Play as either Link or Wolf Link as you progress through the game. (Note: Towards the beginning of the game, you will not have a choice. Gameplay will follow a specific pattern until a certain point. Then you will be able to transform at will.) Also, (as in previous Loz games), you can name your character (and your horse) whatever you choose. (For simplicity, I will just refer to him as Link.) As Wolf Link, use your instincts (senses) to discover hidden objects and areas. As Link, use an assortment of weapons and gadgets, ranging from your classic array of arrows and bombs to new ones like the spinner. (Don't worry, I won't tell you what it does.)
Defeat a variety of enemies, solve puzzles, and explore both familiar lands (like Gerudo Desert, Kakariko Village, and Lake Hylia) and new lands in a whole new way. Not only is the scope of this game extraordinary, but it is also simply beautiful and breathtaking in its details. (I thought "Ocarina of Time" was amazing, but there is no comparison between the two when it comes to this aspect. "Twilight Princess wins hands down.
Speaking of which, I can not say whether this is the best LoZ game or not. In my humble opinion, it is my favorite so far. (I have only played about three or four other LoZ games.) Anyway, it is a fun game that will not disappoint. I have enjoyed every moment of this game and will probably play it over again.
"Twilight Princess" is rated Teen for Animated Blood and Fantasy Violence. Some bosses might be scary or difficult for some. Puzzles can be somewhat difficult for younger ones (tweens and young teens). (Hey, you might find them difficult yourself.) If you are worried about the game content or looking for an age guide to this game, it is highly recommended you look up parent reviews for this game to determine if this is right for you and your family.
Overall, just a really fun and exciting game.
Twilight Princess just might be my favorite Zelda ever; the contrast between the light and twilight worlds is amazing and slightly eerie, the music is fantastic as always, the gameplay is superb, the story is wonderful, as always, and the graphics are top notch for their generation. Having just bought myself a Wii, this is the second game I bought so that I would have it for myself; I can honestly say I had forgotten just how fantastic this game actually is! I highly recommend it!
Rich story, interesting dungeons, and wonderful protagonists - I'm excited for the Wii U remaster. If you only have the Wii - pick this up. If you've got the Wii U, get the Wii U version - but however you get here, just get here if you can. Twilight Princess is a masterpiece.
As for story, there's no pressing need to complete it right away, but then again, this is a very addicting game. There's always something happening and something hidden around the corner and every which way you turn. While Skyward Sword emphasised the discovery of a brand new world and origins and whatnot, this game really makes it an effort to win you over in the journey.
