Gamespot Zelda Review: My thoughts

All right guys I read the review and I have something to say.

First of all the review is fine. Jeff was not biased and reviewed it fair and square. He enjoyed the game hence why the tilt was a 10. The problem was that Gamespot’s reviews are “too good” and they deducted points for the Wii’s features being forced onto Zelda. Stuff like the Wii controller speaker and the fact the sword swinging didn’t feel any better than using a button. The important thing is he enjoyed the game and we will all as well.

That being said I would wait to see what the Gamecube version of Twilight Princess gets as most the negative seems due to the Wii specific features and not the game itself.

With THAT said I still think the more enjoyable fun version will be the Wii’s.

UPDATE: It seems that other reviews are being less strict than Gamespot’s. IGN gave it a 9.5/10 and 1UP 10/10. So this just goes to show that reading one review for a game is not enough.

Mempf out, see you on Sunday.

    Thank you Mempf for responding to my comment and making me feel better about the Zelda’s review and like I said the review is fair at some points.

    hmm.. imo they should base the review on the game itself… not the way the system is set up (unless its exclusively on one system). if i was them i would wait for the gamecube version to come out first but… hey… 😛
