The 100 Greatest Games | 63 | The Legend Of Zelda: The Twilight Princess

YEAR: 2006     FORMAT: WII

The 100 Greatest Games | 63 | The Legend Of Zelda: The Twilight Princess


Hailed by many as the best game since Ocarina Of Time, Twilight Princess moved away from the cartoonish, cel-shaded approach of Link's GameCube outing in favour of a more realistic landscape - albeit one populated by elves, imps and portals to other worlds. Featuring the best elements of Ocarina, along with innovations such as Link's ability to transform into a wolf and a subtle use of the console's motion controls, Twilight Princess is unquestionably the Wii's greatest fantasy adventure. While it may not give the N64masterpiece a serious run for its money, it succeeded in putting the franchise back on track.

Memorable for...
Gesticulation. Waving Wii remote wildly at the screen in order to shoot arrows, aim a catapult or spin-attack encroaching foes made the action more immersive than before, and struck a perfect balance between the console's fancy new control system and the familiar role-playing action of old.
