|Limited Edition Bundle w/Soundtrack and Gold Wiimote|
Now when I say "pleasantly surprised", I remind you that I have been a huge fan of the series for over a decade; but I've said it once and I'll say it again, I did not care for Twilight Princess. It was lacking something, I still can't say quite what, but it just didn't feel like I was playing a Legend of Zelda game. It can't have been the darker tone of the game, because Majora's Mask was honestly one of my absolute favorites.
The overall feel of the game, the world of Skyloft, it's inhabitants, and the music are all very fresh; new, yet still familiar. The music for the game is perfect, it's the same songs as in the iconic Ocarina of Time, but re-done to sound just different enough. The character's dialogue is also reminiscent of its predecessors, while the character models are unique to this game.
The graphics were not what I was expecting, being comparable to PS2 graphics, although I haven't played my Wii since moving and may just need to re-adjust my graphics settings.
My brief introduction to Link's newest companion, Fi, was also very positive... what can I say I like cold, analyzing characters that talk like robots.
The main thing to take away from this, I'm excited to continue playing it and would much rather be doing that than working right now.
Also where the Hell is my fucking Loftwing?
