May not be what we are used to in terms of a game, but if they are going to attempt to make games likened to real life surroundings, movements, speech, appearence, then they should tune the finer things. I dont personaly see how the animation was considered to be left like that or INTENTIONALY made like that, because as I and others have said it doens't LOOK real. It lacks feeling, not just general poor animated motion.Originally Posted by White-Wolf
For a Zelda game, Links run would be the last thing I thought I would have to comment on, because they had no problems in the past. I'm aware however games will always have something not meeting our expectations but bringing it back to the sole fact that there was never a problem before it stands out alot more now.
I have thought though that maybe they are setting Link up for an improvement later on in the game, i.e. Pegasus Boots (ALttP). They said there will be some old and some new weapons, but naturally we would only think of Oot, MM, WW, the recent titles. But maybe they want to ressurect some of the items that are now forgotten in Zelda titles. It was probably the Pegasus Boots that gave them the idea to go on and create more boots for specific situations, i.e. Iron Boots, Hover Boots.
We have seen the Iron Boots alot in the trailers but no reference made to any other type of boot brougth forth from previous games or NEW boots, and with the Hyrule field taking so much time to cover, instead of riding all the time it would be nice to charge up and sprint the length (NOOO not the whole length, just from village to village. Would make it feel more real because if you haven't got any other mode of transport how do we get to places quicker then walking?...) like the running man from OoT.
There maybe be a point where Epona is seperated from you like in MM, and then the boots come into play. Imagine having a sidequest like the Bigoran Sword from OoT, and you have a time limit to run to a certain place. Once you manage to do so your rewarded with Pegasus Boots, and a race track is opened up like the Goran race tracks in MM.
Food for thought. I've been on game forums before for upcoming games and brought forth nice imaginative ideas, that may not be there in the final build but is still nice to share and discuss
