    I dont think it did!
    Remember this trailer?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0Tf9XxkwAE

    Im sure you do, I got so pumped wathing this...and even today I do!
    After years of delays for the title new things are brought up such as the wolf and the twilight realm ect., and they also killed off some things for instance the huge tree creatures!

    Anyways what I just mean to say is the title felt less epic than what it first was!

    Heres some big dissapointments about the game

    -Not fully orchestrated music at promised

    -Map isnt as large or detailed as it was hyped to be, and Hyrule felt like a bunch of rooms connected to one and other

    -Was nowhere near as long as promised (first said it was 100 hours and its actually 40 )

    These last things are more of my opinions

    -Story was weak compared to other Zelda titles

    -The Wii controls didn't feel all that great (wasnt worth the 1 year delay!)

    -Link had so many facial expressions you no longer felt like him as Nintendo intended

    -Not enough exploration...and thats why I love Zelda games!!!

    Twilight Princess was a great game...but it could have been much much better!

    list anymore things that you felt bummed about

    I completely disagree but hey its your opinion. I think Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the best Legend of Zelda to date. It met and exceeded all my expectations.

    As a zelda game i expected a lot, but i do have some problems with but IMO it was great probably the best, the controls were better then i expected, horseback battles are fun etc.

    I see where your coming from tho.

    i thought it was definatley a great game, there were two things that i felt wrong with it...

    1) it seemed like there was no exploration between temples, it just seemed like one temple after another and so on.

    2) Idk about anyone else, but i found every boss, (i just got to the twilight palace, please dont say anything about the final boss.) was incredibly easy, sometimes even the mini bosses in the temple were harder.

    It was definitly a great game and "one" of the best zelda games but it sure doesn't come even close to OOT and i was expecting abit more but it is still a great game!

    You guys are absolutely crazy!

    I mean seriously, this was my second Zelda played through and I absolutely loved it. It was a lot better than Wind Waker (I love WW btw) and it not only met my expectations, but it became my new favorite game of all time.

    It is a matter of opinion I know, but you have to admit that this Zelda game defeats all others.

    Never played one before but I loved it and now I want all the Zelda games

    I do wish it was longer and more open but I'll leave that for the Zelda MMO

    Everything in that trailer is from the game though? Except the army line-up, don't remember that.

    They just put it together nicely and with music that enhanced it even more.


    It's a great game, my favorite Zelda yet and of course it could have been better. Everygame can always be.

    Hopefully those points you mentioned though will turn up in the next game.

    I hope Nintendo tries harder...not that they didnt work their asses off on Twilight Princes...they just forgot the secret ingredient ...."Mr.Miyamto"....yeah he had a role with making the game... but he didnt have complete control...Eiji Aonuma did ,and has had direct control since Majoras Mask...no wonder we havent seen a better Zelda than Ocarina of Time!

    Thats why the trailer looks so good...because Aonuma wasnt the director! Mr.Miyamto is!!!

    I guess that video was really early because thats not how link weilds his sword. He has it in his right hand in the game and his shield in his left hand. The video was opposite.

    But anyways, I just got this game the other day, so maybe I cant comment to much on it, cus im not done it, but this game is so great. I was so excited to play this game, and well I wasnt really expecting much from it, other than another great zelda game. And this so far is my favourite zelda game to date.

    What's Chabudai Gaeshi, some sought of food that he dropped so he had to clean all of it up? Anyways, I think it's pretty good I haven't even versed the first boss in the temples yet, but I just want to know one thing about it, how do you get in the big door because I looked at a walkthrough and it just says 'Ok, once you're in. But how do you actually get in there (it's the big plant thing diablabla or something) any help would be well appreciated. (Bit off topic sorry)

    Ocarina of Time was good, but compared to the many hours you could play TP, the many more adventures, many more secrets. I don't know how you could say TP is not better than OoT.

    I actually like TP more than OOT. OoT is more of a classic just like the original Super Mario is, but just like I'd rather play Super Mario 3 over 1, I'd much rather play TP over OOT.

    My only nit-pick is that the combat is a little too easy to master. Some bosses were on the easy side too.

    Overall though TP lived up to my dreams and then some, I love it.

    Now if Super Mario Galaxy does that, I'll be in heaven as I'm a huge Mario fan.

    The music and 100 hours of game play would be awesome

    That's because of the Wii Remote thing in the GC he holds it in his left but in the Wii version he holds it in his right to better suit the majority of right-handed players not to mention it's gotten them a lot of hype suprising considering the only difference is the hand he holds his weapons in

    OoT in todays standards is not as good as TP but when OoT came out it was so much better than TP's launch

    You need the big key

    it's somewhere in the temple yeah I remember you know at the one place where there are two rotating bridges get the Gale Bomerang (From the white monkey you have to beat) use it on one of the spinning things on top of them and walk across there is a chest containing the key

    The woods were either changed to that area with the fog on the ground or removed



    On a separate note why is this not in the Twilight Princess forum


    With all due respect Miyamoto is awesome and a genius but let's not forget Eiji Aonuma won best director over the director of Gears of War in EGM and Gears of War is the best game for the 360 as of now

    OoT was probaly one of the greatest games ever, on any platform. the reason it was so god was because it showed a new was to lay out a zelda game which wasn't seen before....TP is a great game but to me it feels more like a part 3 of OoT instead of a new game...its still very good though
