    I really want to play this game, but I dont know if I should buy it or rent it. After beating it how many of you play it again?

    why rent a game that takes over a day to beat. Buy it man its a must have. After I beat the game I was so proud and then I looked at it and said freaking 33 hours to beat this damn game. So I have never played it again because I'm kind of sick of it.

    I am thinking of signing up for something like gamefly, so i am probably going to rent it from there
    I wanted to know if people play it agian after beating it, if not there is no point considering buying it

    well honestly I would buy it because it definitely deserves to be in your wii library, but hey whatever floats your boat.

    if you rent this game, your wasting your time. This game needs to be bought. Also, if you played this game for 4 hours only, you haven't played Twilight Princess. The first 6-7 hours of the game seem very introductory and it starts off slow. You get hooked by the time you get to the 2 or 3rd temple. And before you finish the game you still have the 50 floor dungeon, the Cave of Wonders, to complete. If you rent this game, or don't play it for a long period of time, I'm afraid you cannot say you've played Twilight Princess, and cannot judge.

    If you're a guy who likes to sniff out all the extras and beat all the side quests, buy it.

    But if you're a guy who likes to beat the game, feel satisfied, and then put it down, I'd say rent it.

    But to beat it, it runs an average first timer 40 to 50 hours to beat. Took me 45. Just make sure you play enough to get the most! (If you're on a weekly trial, you'd have to play 10 hours a day almost!)

    Hmmm.... Now is this question even worth asking? TP is definitely a Buy, it is totally worth the money. It is a very very long game as well, so there is no way you could beat it in a week or two. If anyone disagrees, quote me.

    If this helped, click the 'shroom please.

    I'd say buy it its pretty long and even though I beat it I still go back and play it every once and a while. It might just be where I live but you cant buy it anymore anywhere so it might be good to get it.

    i would definitely say buy it, like most everybody else that has endorsed this idea, its a game to have in you library, and if you do all the side missions and whatnot it will take you quite a while to finish. it is a good game, as for replay value i would go with a not so much, only replay value i can see is if you want to try to beat it faster than the first time you played it. which im guessing could be cut in half after you know what you are doing.

    I would definitely say that this game deserves to be purchased. I personally think that its a classic which every Zelda fan must own.

    it needs to be purchased ... sadly ive only played it for 30 hours and im far from beating it .. i keep buying the new Wii games that come out so i tend to drift away from Zelda and go to other games...

    Buy it, because after you beat it, you can mount it on your wall and have all your little friends look at it.

    Ya Im kinda thinking thats the only reason I got this game just to have it for the future. But ya Im kinda thinking it was not worth the 50 dollars and I have never felt that way about any Zelda game i have ever bought

    This game is a definite buy. It is always fun to play a game like this again down the road after beating it. Zelda has to be one of the best in that category, and this one just about beats all. If you rent it, you probably atleast pay for half of it if not more just to beat it once in your rental time--might as well buy it and have it for later too, however long that may be.
