    I donít think it needs a fix per say. Its not a choppy animation, and it does have its own kind of fluidity, its just not what we are used to, and every zelda game has things we donít expect/except. tww anyone? TP is as close as any Zelda game is ever going to get to being a fanboys wetdream.

    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.

    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

    I will agree, that his movements are alttle strange, but he is an elf, he runs like an elf... but if these are final animations, its still ok. When he runs, it seems like he is really light on his feet.

    I also think itís very possible their will be a speed boost of some sort with a different animation.

    Most of these screenshots and videos are from old builds, if the programmers had time to reprogram the controls, what did all the artists do in the meantime? Well they were probably getting out the game wax and polishing things up. Lets hope they didnít miss a spot.

    On a big game like this, if people art working, something wrong. If they have time to fix one aspect, this gives other teams to work on other parts of the game simultaneously, as such itís not a waste of time.

    Running like an Elf light on his feet is one thing, but running like an Elf light on his feet in the face of danger, but merely looking like its a rabbit following him because it saw a carrot sticking out his pocket is another lol

    Overall I didnt like his run when seeing it throughout dungeons etc, but it really looks out of place in that giant spider chase. He's either not fully aware of what could happen to him if he gets caught by it, or he's over confident and thinks its not worthy of a full pelt run (which I doubt because this link turns from a basic shepard/rancher, to a sword swinging mercenary over night, I assume near reluctantly aswell, had it not been for his village friend being kidnapped and taken into the Twilight Realm).

    I think that they should show his lack of experience in battle to a certain extent by animating his run in a way alot closer to adult Link from OoT. I'm not saying thats the best run of all ages but it would show that he is new to danger, being brought up in a quiet village untill now. So when an enemy is attacking or chasing and you decide to turn tail and run, it LOOKS as though he is worried (even if not in facial expressions, because it wouldnt suit the part LATER on in the game where he would of grown accustomed to danger) about his health and that he WANTS to live through the incident but still come out triumphant.

    lol. that just means they dident have the time to make the animation they way they wanted to, and thus it means tp should be delayed.
