Oh how I miss you Zant.

Zant is by far the creepiest villain I've ever seen, and that weird scream that accompanied his appearances sent shivers down my spine.

Twilight Princess is a steal at $20, but I can't get into the waggling for sword combat...

I loved how menacing Zant was only to be revealed he was an insane child of a villian. It was amazing and hilarious, but other people who take video games super seriously got mad. Also hilarious.

Skyward Sword is my favorite Zelda yet. I'm not too good at Zelda though. It's my favorite game series, and I've spent maybe 6-8 hours on it since yesterday (Came home with it around 2 in the afternoon.) I'm only in Faron Woods trying to find the Kikwis. Yeah, I know, I'm bad. But It's the best one yet. My favorite aspects are the combat and the art design. Flying on the Loftwing is fun too. Much better then sailing in Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass. It's less linear then Spirit Tracks' train segments, which is a good thing. I;m listing to the CD as I type this. The songs are amazing and the sound quality blows my mind. It sounds like I'm there listing to a concert! I got the bundle, and this is my first MotionPlus game. I didn't know just HOW responsive it is! Anything you do with the sword, Link will mimic. I especially love how the overworld isn't a huge world like Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess, rather long dungeon-like areas. 10/10 already and I've barely played it. (Sorry for the length......)

Ocarina of Time's overworld isn't that big. Twilight Princess and Wind Waker are much larger and more vast.

I like him way better, mostly because he's so fun to fight.

He's just a really creative antagonist, IMO. I thought his villainist ways had much more potential for a dark twisted tale/plot than Ganon's. Ganon is awesome, sure, but Zant made Twilight Princess for me. Oh and Link was cool too.

And the there's Midna < 3

Just for you.

I hate how Link has these giant lips in Skyward Sword. It looks like he had too much botox. The Link in Twilight Princess is the best designed, IMO.

Wow, the design of the third temple is ingenious. There's so much to do that I keep finding things that I missed on my first passthrough.

Got the bundle yesterday. It was the first time I've ever waited outside for a store to open. I just wish I had more time to play. I'm only 2 hours into it so far.

@Red-acteur How on earth have you already finished it? I've had it since Friday and have been playing for quite a lengthy time, and I'm only in the second dungeon! How many dungeons are there?

Héhé ! In France, street dates are for wusses ! They all decided to release it on Tuesday and I've played from one to 10 hours each day (finished it in around 30-35, to tell the truth, I was so into it that time really flew by yesterday ^^'.... I heard a friend of mine accidentally did the same thing !) This game is so amazing it will consume you.... for a few days and that is why I don't play MMOs (they don't end, but Zelda does, so I have an excuse to geek for hours on end) !

@SilentJ Same here! I stood waited outside my bestbuy for an hour. And with only 7 copies of the bundle available and 5 people (including myself) in line to pick it up, I'm glad I waited!

So I'm about 8 hours in now. Made it to the 2nd place (trying to take my time and enjoy every aspect of this game) Still loving it! Just every part of this game is impressive! the little details, the characters (did I mention I love this game?) and the controls... I swear, I don't think I could every play another Zelda Console game without these controls! it just makes every past Action RPG I've ever played look like a kiddy button masher :P (of course those games were still lots of fun, but you know what I mean lol just feeling blinded by the awesomeness B) )

This might quite possibly be the Best Video game I've ever played... But of course, I have to wait till I finish to give my final results lol.

I hate how you can't save whenever you want. :(

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Motion controls don't work too well for me, particularly the bombs. It took me half an hour probably to bowl a bomb across that bridge early on, and I still have more bowling to do thanks to the fire breathing enemies in their holes. The motion is really awkward when tethered to the nunchuk since the cord ends up hitting me mid-swing. Walking into position and aligning the path of the bomb takes too long compared to the time of the fuse, and then the path gets screwed up when you pull the remote back to bowl... that is, if it doesn't change to a throw motion mid-swing and screw everything up, or worse pull out your sword so that it explodes at your feet.

I know some people enjoyed making fun of Gamespot because they had trouble with the controls (I didn't read it, so I don't know their particular complaints), but I have to say they aren't working that great for me either, unfortunately. Fine game despite the frequent frustrations. The soundtrack is the best since Link to the Past.

The motion controls constantly fail me without ever particularly enhancing the experience when they do happen to work correctly. The sword sometimes follows exactly but not always. I calibrated it and it would still hold out right behind me when I actually had it at my side. Sometimes it swings when I just want to move it. Sometimes I pull out the sword when I am trying to manipulate a B item. Sword play just isn't that exciting when the most common enemies, Bokoblins, generally block faster than you can thoughtfully swing, encouraging you to waggle attack, which kills them faster and easier.

But it wasn't even really bothering me until Eldin and the bombs. I understand someone must have really liked Wii Bowling, but it is just not working.

I think it's a fine game so far despite that and hope the controls don't frustrate me too much to finish, but I would have liked this a lot more with a Classic Controller option.

For me practice makes perfect. I'm having these issues as well but a bit of practice helps me a lot
