The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess


Recommended Posts

Here is a little story you lot will probably enjoy. I call BB to find out if they have any copies of TP for the GCN in today, which they did. So I drive down and snag the second to last copy (apparently have had 20 in at the beginning) and bought it. After going home to check up on my mother I foolishly mentioned that I had bought Zelda for the GCN. Suddenly I see this shocked look on her face and am asked, "Why did you buy that?!" "Because its been delayed for about 2 years and more than patiently waited for it?" "Well that was stupid, what if someone else bought you it already?" "Considering it JUST came out in stores today...so I'm going to guess you bought it too?" "Ordered it online."

So, to shorten up the somewhat dull tale (I suck at telling stories) I end up having my copy of Zelda confiscated till Christmas where I will be finally enjoying my purchase...Nintendo delays are one thing but come on!

GOOD LUCK. T_____T

I highly agree that the characters should have actual voice acting, because the models are acted out so well. I love the cutscenes, and during gameplay sometimes it's hard for me to comprehend that this is on the gamecube. It's fucking FUN too. I haven't actually done the first temple yet, but I'm about to cuz I just talked to that spirit dude. I have no complaints, except for the fishing. It's amazing how much cooler HDR lighting makes game environments.

You are in for a GREAT time in the first temple. I was very impressed with its entire design, enemies, strategies, just about everything. This game rules.

Well sure, because it's not in the same graphics realm as Mario Kart or Sunshine. Those games have a rounder look and texture, thus they appear different than Zelda. Wind Waker was the same way. With sharp edges Zelda is using a different graphics style, and it has to do with the game's art direction.

I'm not hating on the Wii, an awesome system, or Zelda, an incredible game, but does anyone notice that Zelda TP on Wii has a lot more jagged edges and general graphical oddities than a lot of gamecube titles like Mario Kart: Double Dash?

That's related to the huge amount of other stuff going on in the world at the same time. The overall world is a lot more detailed and has more effects going on at the same time, resulting in lower model detail in some parts, compared to the Mario games with their simpler environments, allowing more power to be used for character models.

I've been collecting the golden bugs but am currently stuck. I've got everything but 2, and they are apparently in the Sacred grove. I'm right after the 4th temple, and have gone to N. faron woods right after the spinning bridges and the tight rope stuff. I enter the sacred grove and it's like sealed off, i can't get in. I seem to remember leaving the place a different way than i came in, but don't exactly remember, also i have no warp point (maybe i missed it? wtf) I need those damn bugs!

The first temple blew. It had the murky tribal look that the wind temple in Wind Waker had, only worst, monkeys constantly screeching and acting generally dumb, only one floor... The cool part was at the end when you have all the monkeys and the actual boss. At least the first boss is easier then the second. The second didn't even touch me, he didn't even attack once.

IMO, the game is pretty sucky for a Zelda until about... after the second temple. It just feels rushed until there. The Gorons? It's not even a city, it's like a hole in a rock with a chamber that has a backdoor to a dungeon. And both temples 1 and 2 are easy as crap. After that though... it really takes off. The 3rd temple was the first water temple I enjoyed and I even liked the little cameo at the end. Coolness overall.

And after the 3rd temple, well...

: D

I'm really hoping there's like another Goron city and Zora's Domain. Those were nothing, just a couple of simple chambers.

Have you gotten the item in the Temple of Time yet? That's the dungeon in the sacred grove. If you haven't you can't get the bug yet. That may also be why the warp point is not available.

The one bug is to you left and down from the warp point (or the closed door through time), the second is through the door, go down and to the right (or maybe left?) and use the item you got in the Temple of Time

Yeah, it does seem like there wasn't a lot of thought put into the Goron and Zora towns. I mean, there was more to do in those places in the N64 games than there is in TP.

As far as the dungeons go...I really only liked the 2nd and 5th. And there were a few that just shouldn't have been considered dungeons.

TP is pretty damn good, but Majora still owns it...in my opinion, of course.

The 2nd? The Goron one? That one was pretty tame.

Bow-shmow. It's the same as using the slingshot, only now, you can kill enemies. Seriously, my favorite moments with the game have been in Hyrule Field and Lake Hylia. Fishing is just so fun and escorting Ilia was AWESOME.

escorting ilia was no fun to me

You can't get them until either the sixth or seventh temple, I can't remember which one.

How is that even possible? Unless your wiimote is fucking broken or something, escorting Ilia demonstrated everything you could do on horseback: keep going in a straight line while turning back and shooting off enemies with the bow, then quickly swivel to the front and deliver a spin attack on the four rider bokoblins (are they?) around you, then quickly catch your pace to gale the caravan, switch to your bow and pick off a couple of archers. Non-stop action. Way fun.

No fun for me either, as soon as I realized I'd be doing an escort mission I groaned.

Escort missions is one of those things, like stealth, where unless the game is built around it, it sucks.

EDIT:

So then by that logic CE, your remote was broken through the first two dungeons.
