LEGEND OF ZELDA: Twilight Princess

When an evil darkness enshrouds the land of Hyrule, a young farm boy named Link must awaken the hero – and the animal – within. When Link travels to the Twilight Realm, he transforms into a wolf and must scour the land with the help of a mysterious girl named Midna. Besides his trusty sword and shield, Link will use his bow and arrows by aiming with the Wii Remote controller, fight while on horseback and use a wealth of other items, both new and old.
You can move by using the analogue thumbstick on the nunchuk, while you will be able to switch between items using the plus pad on the remote. Targeting onscreen is handled by using the Z button on the nunchuk, which will bring up a sparkling fairy onscreen as a cursor. It seems like you’ll be able to use the fairy as a secondary means of selecting items using the interface indicators onscreen. You’ll use the remote to swing your sword, holding down the B button on the bottom of the remote unit. Aiming the bow will also be handled freely with the remote, with a visible cursor on the screen that will show you where you’re aiming. Actually the bow and arrow is one of the coolest things we’ve seen on the Wii. The Wii remote has a built-in speaker will be utilised while firing the bow. You’ll hear the bow string stretch and go taut, and when you fire, you’ll hear the sound of the arrow being released, and then the sound of the arrow striking the target will come out of the television speakers, simulating a dynamic sound-scape. You can imagine other games using this feature to make the sound of gunshots come out of the remote speaker, for example.
Jabbing with the remote will let Link do a shield-bash move to stun enemies. The rumble feature will let you feel it when you connect with a shield bash. And its not just the combat that is clever with the remote – even fishing is made possible where you use the remote to cast and reel in fish with intuitive flick-and-pull moves. Add to this an award winning storyline and beautiful graphics and you have one of the most highly anticipated games from Nintendo and a great addition to the legendary of the Zelda series.
