I disagree it did live up to the hype or desrve its high rating!
Don't get me wrong it is a good Zelda game, I was just expecting more out of it.
It is like it said in the article, a cross between Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, not just visually but game play as well.
There are great little quirks that just make me laugh and smile and those are its saving grace, if it weren't for them it wouldn't be no where near as good as there are a couple of things which would have made it better.
Though it did break my one and only montion plus sensor so had to order a new one
Buy it, play it, it's a great game, but don't buy up to the hype it doesn't quite reach it and you are left wanting more from it.
85% on par with Twilight, just with better sword action.
