The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - IGN give an "Incredible" thumbs up

IGN have given a huge thumbs up to the new Zelda game; Twilight Princess for the Nintendo Wii. IGN give the game an "Incredible" 9.5/10 overall, a rather impressive score if you ask us. Does the game deserve this high rating? Well I guess thats up to you guys, the gaming public. Why not comment on it in our forums?

The complaint could be made that Twilight Princess is too similar to Ocarina of Time because the basic play style is familiar and because some faces and places return. However, we think such criticisms are unfounded because they seem to suggest that Zelda's masterful control mechanics should be changed simply for the sake of being different. These criticisms also ignore everything about the game that is completely new - there's a lot of it. Consider the Twilight Realm, Link's new wolf mechanics, some of the incredible new weapons and items he amasses, and a few of the several original locations and temples, which are fascinating. The Temple of Time is hidden somewhere in this enormous new game, but so is a dungeon in the sky. This is definitely the Zelda universe and yet it is in many ways a compelling re-imagining of that universe.
