Zelda: MetaReview

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is released today along with the Nintendo Wii and here is a round up of all the reviews for one of the most highly anticipated games this year. As you can see it is an essential purchase for anyone considering buying a Wii.

GameSpy - 100% “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.”

1UP - 100% “Truly fantastic. It’s not a reinvention of the genre like Ocarina was — but it’s much better, because it takes all its predecessors’ raw ideas, perfects them, and creates an experience that’s at once new and familiar. It’s rare to find a launch game that truly justifies the purchase of a new console, but this is precisely that.”

GameInformer - 100% “As monumental as each entry has been, nothing, and I repeat, nothing can prepare you for the adventure that unfolds in Twilight Princess. The debate that has waged for decades over which Zelda game should stand as the series’ best will at long last come to a satisfying conclusion, as this is unquestionably the greatest Zelda yet.”

GamesRadar - 100% “Even with a handful of complaints, it’s impossible to give Twilight Princess anything but our highest recommendation. As the best game in a series that routinely puts out game-of-the-year caliber stuff, this is one journey you simply must play. It may not be a catchall game for Wii like Wii Sports or even Excite Truck, but longtime gamers and lifelong Nintendo fans can proudly stand in line, awaiting one of the most stirring, rewarding gaming experiences in history.”

CVG - 100%
This isn’t the game to show off the Wii’s unique functionality; after all Twilight is at essentially a GameCube game. But if you’re looking for a killer app to go alongside your new console, this is certainly it.”

GameBrink - 99% “It truly is, in my opinion, the best and longest Zelda ever made. With nearly 70 hours of playtime committed and more still to do, I cant think of a better experience or value this holiday season.”

Wii Advanced - 97% “Twilight Princess is not as revolutionary as “Ocarina of Time.” It doesn’t reinvent a 2D classic as a 3D one. It doesn’t revolutionize the adventure genre. Instead, it takes everything about the Zelda universe and improves upon it. It is bigger, and it is better. But it’s not new. It is a great evolution of the loved series.”

IGN - 95% “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is, in my opinion, 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.”

GameDaily - 90% “Twilight Princess stands out as one of Nintendo’s more attractive games, thanks to its fabulous draw distances, breath-taking imagery, life-like animations, imaginative character designs and dramatic action sequences.”

GameSpot - 88% “You’ll almost certainly enjoy the game for its terrific puzzles, colorful characters, and compelling story, but at some point the feeling of nostalgia crosses the line and holds this game back from being as unbelievably good as some of its predecessors.”

    Wow, thos are amazing scores, but GameSpot should have given it a far better score.

  2. 2 michale patsalou

    It definately deserves 99-100% it’s one of the best games you’ll ever play-buy with confidence.

  3. 3 zeldaboy

    i think gamespot dropped alot of points for gfx

  4. 4 gamespot

    gamespot has a bunch of young, inexperienced, and immature gamers with some health disorders. “holds this game back..”? back from what? it’s a zelda game. also, the quote about nostalgia only shows the lack of attention span that gamespot has (ADHD or something).

  5. 5 Ikaro

    The best zelda game! GameSpot and GameDaily have devaluate the potential of this game!

  6. 6 Deek

    This is by far the best starting Zelda game ever! 6 gp hours in, and I’m already hooked - can’t wait to get home from work so I can add another 6 hours… All hail the Twilight Princess!!

  7. 7 Stix

    The above referenced from gamespot is rediculous, as is the score. I appreciate what nostalgia he claims is holding the game back. 10 hours into the game and I can honestly say this is one of the best Zelda games yet. Gamespot… fuck off and die…
    Irrationally Angery Zelda Fan…

    P.S. I was actually just kidding about the die part… It was really just a figure of speach. I merely hope you lose credability as reviewers, as you well should.

  8. 8 Link

    This is an unbeleveable game , best Zelda yet, Gamespot get a clue!!

  9. 9 Wii Master

    I think the lower scores shoule be ignored… It’s pretty unanimous that its a contender for best game ever. I don’t really find Gamespot a particularly good site anyway so take it’s opinions with a pinch of salt. Has anyone seen the video review that Jeff Gerstmann posted? He really seems like he doesn’t have a clue. I know I’m going to love this game

  10. 10 Bows 'n' Arrows

    I can’t even begin to explain how dam STUPID gamespot could be 8.8 haha what a pathetic effort. If you have been reading alot about Twilight Princess being a bad game boy you are mistaken. It is by far the best Ledgend Of Zelda game out with the new boomerang and the Wii’s Nunchuck (very simular to the N64) is very useful.

    Overall well done Nintendo

    Wow, Gamespot may as well have given it a 50% based on the way everyone is carrying on about how awful their review is. Am I the only one that sees 88% as a damn fine score? I have not seen where anybody has called it a bad game. Overreacting over an 88% review seems kind of silly.

    Personally I think 100% reviews are more ridiculous than the 88%. I find it hard to belive that any game can reach perfection. That there is absolutely no way it could have been improved. That at no point in the game you might think to yourself “This game could be even better if…”

    So maybe the 88% was too low and maybe the 100% is too high but thanks for sites that average all the reviews we can get a better idea of where games actually rank.

    Remember your Zelda fans reviews of the game are just as objective as Gamespots review. Last I heard there was no scientific method for reviewing games without any objectivity.

    Zelda is goddamn good. I haven’t been too into their other games, I own them and occasionally play them but this zelda is something different. It is fantastic. My girlfriend got hooked and she isn’t even a gamer! Game Spot has no validity to me anyway so I don’t understand why it’s such a big deal about them giving it a low score. They are just trying to look like they know it all but they just don’t know what they are talking about. Sorry guy’s, I have been playing games for 17 years and I am in love with zelda and I didn’t even like their other releases!
