    Is this the hyped Zelda game that was set to take the console scene by storm, when in fact it looks like a cartoon? :p Pre-judgements aside, if it's Nintendo and it's Zelda, it's bound to be good.

    TBH, I'm really looking forward to playing it.. there's far too much emphasis on 'photorealism' from games.

    I think the cartoon idea might work really well.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Kind of flows better, where as waker sounds a bit... blunt?

    Enjoy! :D

    I assume so yeah. With the newest Freeloader. That's how Kna is doing it (I recall, correct me if I'm wrong).

    GBA games are dead cheap too... Nice site! :D

    Yup, both my Metroid Prime and Zelda are Canadian imports which work with the UK Freeloader (Action Replay in my case, because I'm a cheatin' bastich ;) )

    Having had a quick leg around the opening area in Zelda, I have to say I'm attached to the graphics almost immediately. The animation and touches are so smooth and yet you think you're playing a cartoon. Imagine 'Toy Story' where the idea was to make them look like toys and not like humans.. the rendering is superb, yet the visuals are really different (which lends itself to an adventure game).

    As for the game, the control mech is the same as previous Zeldas, which is a bonus, and the gameplay is yet to be seen as I'm not very far into it.

    If you liked Zelda and can adapt to the new visuals, I think you're going to like it.

    Even though I'm broke, I bought this last week by trading in a few games (cost me £3 then, lol). Probably the best Zelda I've played so far... Just so much to do and the dungeon puzzles are so cool. More emphasis on single rooms rather than the whole thing (whereas Ocarina of Time was more the opposite).

    Very...very...good.

    Played it for a good 8hours straight on Sunday evening after playing on it with my girlfriend all morning, lol

    Ace game :thumb:
