Well sure, it was basically a glorified Ocarina of Time (which is my favorite game ever, I might add). I totally get where you're coming from.

With that said though, graphics aren't everything. If Wind Waker taught us anything, it's that a Zelda game can look "weird" to some, but still have the same gameplay they fell in love with in the first place. I think we have nothing to worry about. This game will be amazing. :D

And the best part is that this style of graphics take longer to age, Ocarina looks rather bad now, but Windwaker still looks as good as it did back then.

Exactly what I thought, I really enjoy the graphics they chose for this game, seems like the perfect balance. Not too cartoony, not too realistic.

That's quite the achievement, GI, to me, seems to be rather harsh on Nintendo.

Then this is your chance to clear one without a guide. You can do it!

I say go Rambo this time. It's much more rewarding that way. If you ever get truly stuck, and really have no clue what to do, you can always glance at an online guide if you have to.

Here I go again with my "back in the days" comment:

Back in the day, if you got stuck, it meant you staying put, playing the game, wandering uselessly until something worked out, that was real cool as a kid, and you couldn't save on the spot on some games!

Still need an online guide for the damned OoT water temple. I would trust myself more with it, but it's possible to get yourself stuck in there and be unable to continue or go back. At least it rewards you with Morpha, the easiest boss in existence.

I want my shiny gold Wiimote.

The amount of praise for this game is intimidating. I really want to give it a shot.

I always take hype with a grain of salt. Sometimes a lump of it. I will always wait to play agame before making an assessment. It's always nice to see a tidal wave of fantastic reviews though.

It's definitely nice to see such positive reviews. It all comes down to the player. Naturally, a Zelda fanatic such as myself would play the game up even if it garnered a more ho-hum response. Much like LGM would (naturally) eat up a new Metroid title, regardless of what the critics are saying.

Everyone's mileage will vary of course, but I think this game will truly be deserving of the word epic. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Metroid Prime: Hunters is one of my least favorite games. Ever. Derp. And I can still acknowledge Other M's shortcomings while still enjoying the game. I'll never praise it as the best game ever, but will always be annoying when people slam it with baseless accusations.

As for Skyward Sword: if there is a skyward megaton hammer somewhere in there, I will be a happy gamer.

Not to get too off topic, but was MP:Hunters really that bad? I only ever played the demo, and never got around to the actual game for some reason. I heard some good things about, and it honestly always looked like a lot of fun, but if a Metroid diehard doesn't even like it, there must be something icky about it.

I agree I was sort of on the fence about Wind Waker because of the cel shaded graphics but that really grew on me the more I got into the game. I actually really enjoyed WW and wouldn't mind another console title like that some point down the road, sure Skyward Sword uses some of it's graphical charm but a full fledged "toon" Link game wouldn't be bad.

I'm surprised it hasn't been put here yet but Nintendo is indeed working on a full 3DS Zelda game and it's not a port of Majora's Mask. I saw it on IGN last week in one of there daily video things they do. So yeah new original 3DS game in the works and they're considering porting MM to the 3DS as well.

One medicore score in a sea of great reviews really isn't that bad of a thing.

Only four more days to go well I'll have to wait a bit longer since my copy is preordred at Amazon.
