When Link travels to the Twilight Realm, he transforms into a wolf and must scour the land with the help of a mysterious girl named Midna. Using the power and unique control of the Wii console, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess features precise aiming control using the Wii Remote. The Wii Remote and the Nunchuk controller are used for a variety of game activities, including fishing and special sword attacks. Players ride into battle against troops of foul creatures using an amazing horseback combat system, then take on massive bosses that must be seen to be believed. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. Not only immersive, but addictive. Once quest has begun, it will be near-impossible to put the controllers down until Link and Midna have saved the day.
  2. Without a doubt the best Zelda title ever.

    An excellent addition (and homage to "Ocarina") to the franchise, and you'll have an enormous amount of fun playing it from start to finish. Get over the fact that the Wii's hardware is simply not as powerful as the other next-gen machines and get into the fact that Twilight Princess is one of the best games you'll play this year.
  4. 95
    The greatest Zelda game ever created and one of the best launch titles in the history of launch titles – second only, perhaps, to the at-the-time ground-breaking "Super Mario 64." It is also one of the finest games I have ever played.
  5. 94
    It might not be the utterly revolutionary Zelda title that we all expected and its not without its faults, but one thing is clear: Twilight Princess is worth the Wii's price tag alone, even if the fishing does put you at risk of a coronary.
  6. The new control scheme is beautifully integrated into the game, and it feels perfectly natural to start waving your hand like a maniac whenever danger approaches.
  7. Fans of the series will be delighted by the recurring themes, but may be soured by a strong sense of repetition.

    Don't listen to the below reviewer Pokey, the Wii can render graphics better than the original XBox can. Twilight Princess is an amazing Don't listen to the below reviewer Pokey, the Wii can render graphics better than the original XBox can. Twilight Princess is an amazing game. From the gameplay (which is a huge step up from Ocarina), to the plot (which rivals Majora's Mask in quality), to the amazing graphics. This game will keep you entertained for at least 50-60 hours, and is still fun to replay multiple times. Expand

It was an EXCELLENTIt's a Zelda game, thus it's bound to be great, but it just seems to have pulled back from that just a tad bit. It was an EXCELLENT game with EXCELLENT game play, but it just didn't seem to have the replay value that surpasses many of the previous releases, and as most people know, the replay value is one of the many factors, but a major factor, that makes the Zelda series so astounding. Wasn't expecting to trade it in, but 2-3 weeks later, it was off my shelf. Expand

    Its been a long time since I played a Zelda game. Its hard to appreciate how much you miss something until you actually have it again. Its been a long time since I played a Zelda game. Its hard to appreciate how much you miss something until you actually have it again. everything Zelda was, and is, is wrapped up nicely into a package called Legend of Zelda: Twighlight Princess. to say the very least, this game is FUN. from the first sword swing, TP grabs you by the metaphorical cajones and doesn't let go. my only complaints about the game thus far are that the speaker on the Wiimote sounds like crap (taking away the developers intended feel of "pulling" the bowstring, etc.), and swinging the Wiimote to attack gets a little old after a while. that, and Link runs funny in this one. overall, 9.4 out of 10.

    This was a terrible game in comparison to OoT and Majoras Mask, I am ashamed at the direction Nintendo went with this

    Too easy bosses, no

    Too easy bosses, no love at all

    Does not deserve such a high rating, I beat it once and have no desire ever to touch it again
