8.0 Presentation A truly epic new Zelda complete with a compelling, darker storyline, enhanced controls, and brand new gameplay mechanics. Lack of voice acting and orchestrated music are unfortunate. 8.5 Graphics An absolutely gorgeous GameCube game. An enormous, detailed world brought to life via beautiful art. But Wii is still capable of much more, as the adventure's sometimes-blurry textures prove. 8.0 Sound Again, where's the orchestrated music? Come on, Nintendo. Everything else is great, from the moody sound effects to the atmospheric MIDI compositions. 9.5 Gameplay Superb. The tried-and-true Zelda gameplay mechanics are taken to new heights with the Wii remote and nunchuk. Overworld and temple designs are stellar. Classic Zelda reborn for a new generation. 9.5 Lasting Appeal It'll keep you busy for at least 50 hours and you could spend double that in Nintendo's new Hyrule. So much to do and see that you'll be busy for weeks, if not months. 9.5 Incredible OVERALL (out of 10 / not an average) 8.5 Presentation It has more modes than the other versions, a good mix of multiplayer, and a tutorial mode that makes the transition to Wii very smooth. More precision in motion is the next step. 7.0 Graphics Madden 07 looks like a slight upgrade from the GCN version. There’s definite room for improvement though, as animation flickers, sketchy textures, and horizontal tearing is still apparent. 8.5 Sound As always, EA’s choice of in-game music is pretty dead on for the genre. Tons of tracks, decent commentary, and pretty admirable sound effects too. 8.5 Gameplay Most of the motion control is intuitive and entertaining, though kicking is a bit off. A few of the motions are very specific, and need exact input. Multiplayer is a great addition 9.0 Lasting Appeal With dozens of different modes and options, there’s no way Madden 07 will let a hardcore football fan down. Multiplayer is the icing on the cake, and we’d love more in the future. 8.5 Great OVERALL (out of 10 / not an average) THATS GOOD NEWS!!!!!
