    Disappointed.

    I saw somewhere on here that Zelda was being released, and I looked up the release date and it was this Monday. I've played all the Zelda games and have loved them all (OoT for life) so naturally I was excited. I saw IGN gave it a 9.0 and that made me even happier. Good deal, just finished playing halo 3, now to get deep into a good Zelda story. Then I saw a point the IGN reviewer made.. No D pad control... all stylus. Not even an option to turn off stylus control. That was the breaking point.. I had planned to go out and buy it as soon as I woke up, don't have work Monday. Not anymore.. I guess I'll have to wait for the next Zelda on Wii. Not bashing you guys that will enjoy the game, I have no problem with the game besides the controls. Have fun guys!

    Edit- You guys got any good recommendations for some good DS titles either out already or upcoming. I like playing RPG's and other games that have good stories. Any ideas?

    ok. . .

    the controls are weird but I'm sure they'll work fine.

    I'm worried about the length of the game. (about 15 hours. . . )
    Wii games: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Resident Evil 4, Zelda TP, SSX: Blur, Excite Truck, The Godfather, and Mario Kart Wii
    PC games: Call of Duty 4, Halo 1, UT3, F.E.A.R., and The Orange Box.
    PS3 games: Ratchet and Clank F.T.O.D., Resistance 2, Wipeout HD, and MGS4.

    After digging deeper I found that it's a sequel to WW.. That's a double hit to it.. If the controls were fine I'd probably still play it. But those two together just really hurt it's case. WW was by far my least enjoyable Zelda.

    if it didn't have any navigating for triforce pieces, then it would have been better..get Jam Sessions for the DS, it's better than an RPG trust me

    The end is near....Or is it the beginning?
    it's THE BEGINNING of an endless fall into a precipice of epic Brawling fun.

    Unfortunately I am going to knock it. Sorry. I wasn't asking for advice on how to get myself to buy the game, but rather advice on other games to buy. And to the other poster, I'll take a look at Jam Sessions.

    At least give the game a try... You won't know for sure if you don't like the controls unless you do. Who knows, you might even like them better than using the d-pad once you get used to them...

    I don't know why you people feel the need to defend something so bad. I'M NOT BUYING THE GAME. I don't know how old you kids are but as an adult my hands are a little larger so using a stylus on a small screen means blocking out half of it. I don't need people trying to convince me to buy this game. I just don't want it. Did you read that? If you don't understand then read it again, cause it's just not happening. I don't mean to be a prick but it's like you guys aren't reading what I wrote. If you don't have any other suggestions for other games then just don't post anything. Tell your sisters or brothers about the game cause this guy just doesn't care about your reasons. Heck you haven't played the game, who knows, you might not like it. Know what the means? Money down the drain.

    If the game had used the touch screen the way Pearl and Diamond used it, I'd have bought it. If the DS screen was 7 inches diag I'd have bought it. I just don't feel like controlling a game by tapping a ~3inch screen with a stick.

    buy the game and then dump it in the trash or just burn it then

    and umm I would recommend Ninja Gaiden but it also uses the stylus..so get Contra 4 and Metal Slug, or how about Metroid Prime Hunters

    The end is near....Or is it the beginning?
