Not long after I bought the Wii a friend loaned me his copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Soon after, one of my younger brothers bought a copy of the game for me. I played it almost every night for about two weeks and the took a break of about the same length. Finally, today I sat down once again and played Twilight.
It’s an excellent game, and a great Zelda game that will probably be considered one of the better games in the series along with the original The Legend of Zelda and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. What I’ve enjoyed about Twilight is the manner in which it incorporates aspects of previous Zelda games, especially those I just mentioned.
The game is huge. A friend stated that it can take 72 consecutive hours to finish the game. The official strategy guide is essential, which I’ve borrowed from a friend. Up until I entered the Lakebed Temple I rarely felt that I needed the strategy guide, but today I didn’t feel like wandering around trying to figure out what to do or where to go, so I consulted the strategy guide through much of that journey.
The game is a fine example of what can happen when a company combines old and new elements and combines them well.
