It has a great humour to it, the kind that only a game with honest originality and gameplay can really have; It's like playing your way through a miyazaki film crossed with the sense of self irony of Full metal Alchemist. I love the Anime quality to this game and the black-line graphic reminds me of wind waker/phantom hourglass, which is worth acknowledging as the 'zelda in funny shapes' concept was always a contentious issue, i'm so glad the concept caught on in this case.
Its that rare game which is transcendent through age range (I got stuck on the 5th stage for ages) with a smart use of the wii controller.
I was going between this and Mario Galaxy with this month's paycheck. I'm glad it was this, because having now finished Zelda and hopefully by the 25th, Z&W, Mario will have a lot to live up to.
f I haven't bought mario kart before then....
In addition, the only issue I have with the game is the length of instruction, too much, too often. The hints are great, but when it tells you HOW to use the controller, as to WHAT to use the controller for, it becomes a bit of a dunces art.
