With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

What do these ratings mean?

Why doesn’t link get any love?

 

I always wondered why the games are called “the legend of Zelda” Sure there is a Zelda in every game, but there’s also a Link, and he does all the work, all Zelda does is get her ass kidnapped. Maybe its because you can name Link, therefore its not cannon for his name to be Link in every game, “the legend of _______”  would be kind of dumb. But not as dumb as me actually trying to discuss this topic just so I have an introduction for what I am pretty sure will be a short review.

 

*Goes to the kitchen to make a screwdriver

 

Now, where to start? First of all playing a Game cube game in the Wii almost feels like a rip off (hold your horses Mr. Zelda lover, and I mean that in every sense of the word, you disgust me) just because it’s a Game Cube game doesn’t mean its not great to play on the Wii.

The Wiimote and nun chuck feel great. Swinging the wiimote around is fun and it works, though it could have been a little more responsive. On the other hand aiming with the bow works perfectly. With a little practice you will be more accurate then on any of the previous Zelda games.

 

The graphics on the other hand leave something to be wanted. Don’t get me wrong, the game looks good, it has a certain distinct touch to it which is cool. But I am pretty sure the next Zelda game will look better.

The music is also good and will surely bring back some good memories. The same can be said for the story, its kind of recycled. But that is to be expected. I Honestly cant imagine another way to do it. You are the chosen hero of the gods, Ganon is up no good and you have to stop him. “If it aint broke don’t fix it” still….

But this on the other hand does cripple the innovation of the game. There isent much new to game mechanics. Ocarina of time revolutionized the Zelda series, 2D to 3D is a pretty big step. Though TP is a great game it just does not offer many new things. Except a few of the weapons, which are pretty good.

 

My biggest grief with the game is the difficulty. Its just to damd easy, sure its long and will take you 30 hours to play trough (unless you do all the side quests). But you wont die many times . The bosses are great, big, ugly and totally bad ass, but they are also total push overs. Ganon puts up a good fight, but there are to many pots with hearts in them for it to be a problem.

 

TP is a great game for Zelda lovers, and even those who are new to the series. But it dosent contain much new and exiting content, and the difficulty is far to forgiving. It’s a must have for Wii owners (I actually saw it in the bargain bin at my local game store, who the hell traded it? )
