The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
I think it's worth the reminder that I'm
reviewing the games I've played last year, not of the games that came out last
year... I didn't play enough of those. Regardless, I'm going to talk about what
seems to be everybody's favorite legend of Zelda game, Twilight Princess.
When it first released alongside the Wii, my body
just wasn't Reggie for it; I was VERY inexperienced when it came to video games.
In hindsight however, I realized that this might be for the best because I
remember that I hated games that I was terrible at (and thus the reason I only
played Kingdom Hearts once), and a games as awesome as this doesn't deserve the
blind hate of a little boy.
The basic LOZ formula is intact here, but with
one pretty big tweak; your companion character, Midna, is quite possible one of
the best characters, male of female, to come out of Nintendo ( she's definitely
better than this one at least.) And while the atmosphere (which I'll get to
later) of this game is definitely cool, In my opinion, it is definitely Midna.
She just so brimming with personality that that it makes her fun to be around and
interact with; and that thing that happened at the end of the game that I don't
want to spoil!
Okay, let's talk about something less spoiler
filled and busty; let's talk about the other thing that set Twilight Princess
apart from the other games in the Franchise: the Atmosphere. This game
certainly takes it atmosphere pretty seriously, it was the first game I
encountered that asked me to change the brightness settings of my TV in order
to play it. At the time, I remember that that was a pretty big deal to me. And the
game doesn't have you tweak you Televisions in vain; the game beautifully mixes
Black and yellow to form mesmerizing scenes of Twilight. At times, it was
breathtaking. The darker color pallet and general mood definitely stand to be a
defining feature of this title, a feature that has worked in the past, and may
even work in the future...
Now because I only beat the final dungeon and
boss in 2013 (I played most of the game the year before and got burnt out after
playing a lot), most of the minor details of the game are hazy. I will say this
though. That sand temple, best boss fight in the franchise period.
(sorry former number 1, but this guy is
everything you were, and more)
I loved Twilight Princess, and while it may be
the nostalgia speaking, I'm just going to go ahead and give it a 10. Well, that all I got for today. Sound off in the
comments and I'll see y'all tomorrow!
