Ah !@#$% >_<. Seriously AoDC, when I started writing the review, I was like "will thank AoDC somewhere" but then I just forgot O___o. Now I feel bad. I suppose I'm done with the game now. If you like, I can send it back?
I wasn't angry or anything, just surprised. Don't send it back, you're a huge Zelda fan and deserve it more than me.

If you send me a free game, i will definitely be sure and thank you :D D

As a reviewer you should NOT EVER, change your rating score because of opinions of other people.
Sure, not as an effort to please people.

But a review is just an opinion, and any healthy opinion grows and changes.
And most of the time opinions are changed and formed through discussion with other people and their opinions.


and personally, twilight princess- worst zelda game so far.

It's funny how Hoffy makes a review and then people get angry and are like, "no TP sucks!".

What things do you not like in Twilight Princess that makes you say it's the worst Zelda game so far?

I haven't read the whole topic, but I must say, I rank TP as the second best Zelda game (right behind MM). People complain about the linear nature and all that, but it doesn't bug me at all, I just love the pacing. The story moves along at a steady rate and the gameplay is completely refined. If it had better character interaction it may very well have been the single best Zelda game, but unfortunately it fell flat in that department. I really don't know why people say it's so bad, I mean, games don't get much better than this.

For me it's not that TP was bad...on the contrary, it's an extremely polished game that is a blast to play. It's just compared to other gems of the Zelda series that threw radical innovation into the scheme of things (like the ocean in WW or the time in MM) the game doesn't do anything new. It's simply classic Zelda, which is great...but disappointing too.

Hmm, you should. I'd love it if someone wrote reviews around here besides myself. It doesn't matter if you don't go to any effort with the presentation or the length, just so long as you get the point across.

What things do you not like in Twilight Princess that makes you say it's the worst Zelda game so far?
the game was 100% fan service, or what I'd like to call: anti-fan service.
Made specifically because every douche was still complaining about WW and MM, they wanted a dark game, but not as dark as MM, still fun, but not as fun as WW, they wanted OOT again.
And that's what nintendo made.

Every time I played TP I just got pissed off at how much they caved and made a piece of !@#$% game, there was absolutely nothing interesting in the game, it was just the standard zelda design that didn't get expanded to.
Too many stupid worthless weapons, too many dungeons, no characters, no culture, worthless world, easily the worst zelda game

imo

I think there was sort of a wild west/middle aged theme culture put into the Zelda game. The dungeon number was just the same as its always been in Zelda games last time I've checked. But then again, I do agree how it lacked new features. For how much time Nintendo had to make this game, I think it should have at least had more to it :P.

What bothered me most about Twilight Princess (and what I noted in my review) was that the game lacked the "new gameplay feature" that Zelda games usually come with. Basically every Zelda since A Link to the Past has included some kind of wacky gameplay element that affects the game and makes it seem different. Twilight Princess lacked this, which really bothered me.

A Link to the Past: Parallel Worlds
Link's Awakening: Portability?
Ocarina of Time: Ocarina, Future, 3D
Majora's Mask: Masks, Transformation, Time Limit
Oracle of Ages: Past
Oracle of Seasons: Seasons
Four Swords: Four players
The Wind Waker: Sailing, Wind Waker
Four Swords Adventures: Shadow Battle, GBA connection
The Minish Cap: Kinstones, Shrinking
Twilight Princess: ???
New Wii Zelda: PROFIT!

But it doesn't seem to bother a lot of you, for some reason :P.

To be honest, that's the only thing that bothers me in TP. The lack of new features =\.

I am getting sick of people complaining that they don't like games because of the massive hype.

I am also getting sick of people saying games are better because they brought innovation. While this is important, I believe that a game that uses these things better is still better.

Also sentimentality. Sure a game might seem like it was better (and it might have been by comparison of how fun it was) but play the games again. many of these games do seem to have lost their luster and become fairly dated.

Also realize that the circumstances under which you are playing the game also change the effect. I had a great time playing FFVII, Ocarina, Banjo-kazooie etc because I was playing with a group of friends. Now I play them alone and I like new games better.

I do think TP is genuinely better than ocarina.

On a smaller note the only zelda game that I feel is till fantastic is LA.

Hoffy, you said you'd like to see more users posting reviews right?  I've been meaning to write a review of Ratchet & Clank Future as well as a preliminary review of the PS3.  Is that cool with you?  I'm not trying to "steal your thunder" or whatever that expression is.
