Plot. The story begins in the land of Hyrule, and there is a legend of the omnipotent Golden Power known as the Triforce. It was a balance that weighed three forces: Power, Wisdom and Courage. Most tried to get it but with no success, so the seven wise men, sealed the gates to the Golden Land. One night, a young boy named Link recieves a telepathic message from Princess Zelda while sleeping, and he wakes up to go to the castle. When he enters he finds his uncle mortally wounded and goes to save Zelda as a last favor to his uncle. Soon, Link will discover his own destiny and fight to get three magical pendants in order to release the Master Sword from it's slumber and defeat the evil wizard Agahnim. However, he is not the only one behind the evil covering Hyrule.
Design. This game has the best looks that anyone has ever seen. The characters were sprite rendered and the Triforce looked 3D while it was twirling in the intro screen and in the credits. The looks of Hyrule and the Dark World were so interesting. My most favorite palace is the Tower of Hera in the Light World. Even the forest in the Dark World looked very interesting. This game had a good design
Music. The music evolves and new themes are composed as well. Koji Kondo did a very fascinating job with the music and sound effects of the game. He is like the Hans Zimmer of video games
History. The Legend of Zelda has a long history since the 1980's with the first and second games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Zelda came back with a vengeance on the SNES in 1992. One year later the first Zelda game for the Game Boy was released. Then on 1998, our prayers were answered with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the N64. It is followed by a sequel called Majora's Mask which it had mixed reviews. Two non-canonic Zelda games for the Game Boy Color were released and they were known as Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages. Then in 2002, the Nintendo Gamecube had The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, it was quite successful, except for the cartoonish look. On the Game Boy Advance, the adventures of Toon Link continued in games such as The Four Swords, and The Minish Cap. Then in 2007, Twilight Princess was released for the Wii and GC. The series went also on the Nintendo DS with games such as Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks. This 2011 as seen on E3, a new Zelda game for the Nintendo Wii, titled: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, will be released, and it will be a new game set in a world different than Hyrule and controls will be used by the new Wii Motion Plus
Bad Aspect. There are some things that I have a problem with this game such as buying shields and flippers for 500 Rupees, that is such a rip off that they do of your money. In my opinion I would rather keep the original shield and wait to get the Mirror Shield in Turtle Rock dungeon.I also hated that gold digging monkey from the first palace who wants 100 rupees to open the gate for you. He also runs away when you're hit by an enemy. What was weird was turning into a rabbit when getting to the dark world. You need the Moon Pearl to avoid transformation when entering the Dark Realm. Come on! I hated the Skull Woods Palace as well, because of the annoying Wallmasters and Gibdos, killing them instantly with the Bombos or the Fire Rod was a true waste of magic. Yeesh!
Good Aspect. I really enjoyed also getting upgrades on other weapons and even swords. The Master Sword's strongest level is the gold one that you get from the Fat Fairy in the Pyramid of Power, and you also get from her the silver arrows which are useful to kill Ganon at the end. The worlds were awesome to explore and secrets to get where weapons upgrade such as more arrows, bombs and the red boomerang and saving a carpenter after the Thieve's Town Palace. Favorite techniques are the Ether and Bombos attacks, I also loved the Quake attack.
Overall. I recommend this great game to the Zelda fans, both new and expert. I give this game a 10/10
