Firstly, the game sucks for the first few hours... its a slow starter, and secondly yes your main charcter looks like a world of warcraft character... just don't put it down because of this... The game really expands out as you go along, the story is alright, its very similar until you get about halfway where twists and turns start to come in, The graphics are a bit of a letdown after a brilliantly detailed opening cutscene, they seem to be cartoon like and take away the seriousness of the game, which means it seems like a childs game at times, however the colour and variety in each level is great, some levels are bland and extremely long, but some are beautiful lush greens with some short fun gaming which will take you back to the good old days of zelda. Also the water in this game is very good, its probably the best i have seen in a game for a while. The game controls are ok for the mostpart, sometimes they are too simple for a huge amount of equipment and weaponry, (only 3 slots for 5 pieces of equipment is not very helpful), also movement looks old, with enemies and all other movements on strange looking loops, and enemy AI being extremely pirimitive, to the point there almost is none, they just walk into walls and follow the same old attack patterns all the time, luckily some moves are pretty sweet and the amount you can do is great, it offers a big amount. The gameplay is good, puzzles can be well thought up and fun although most are too long and end up just becoming repetative or fustraiting, and sometimes battles can be tough but this makes them feel more of an achievement once completed. The character models are also weak, unfortunately i didn't like the main charcter, he looks ridiculous until the end of the game where you can make him look awesome with abyssal armour and a new sword. The achievements are good too with many being fun or interesting to unlock. Although the amount of time you spend in the game feels long (which is 10-20hours for the story and more after) its jsut because its slow, it slowly releases new stuff constantly but gives you constant tutorials for these new things, and this means it can occasionally go off corse. The game is great however, and the main thing is you wont want to put it down, and there is not many games quite like it on the xbox 360 at the moment, it takes elements from other great games and uses them well... which makes this a very good game and once you finish you really appreciate it for what it was.
