    Complicated? Really?

    I hope this game doesn't end up being another victim of the "casual crowd" cancer.

    This.
    Has Zelda ever been player friendly?
    I hope they've got more puzzles, Twilight Princess was pretty easy, except for the statues puzzle before you get the Master Sword.
    I also don't hope that player friendly means easy. They need to make harder it less easy. Or at least a difficulty selection... or something like that.

    Nintendo have always tried to make controls as simplified as possible. I guess what they mean is not having so many buttons to remember, not something I'd have problems with.

    People though New Super Mario Wii would be catered to the "casual" crowd but it certainly had a few moments that tested me with some of the later worlds.

    Netherlands, currently
    My first Zelda was Phantom Hourglass, and I enjoyed both the control scheme, and the difficulty.
    Most of the puzzles even cause my jaw to drop after solving them (especially the ones where you have to shout into the mic to put out 2 torches)

    Now, I don't know how Zelda is on the Wii, but I hope it's about the same difficulty.

    Probably means no more having to shake an unresponsive nunchuck to do special attacks.

    Easier controls? Why not just release a bloody DVD then? What is so hard to understand about "a control stick controlling the character"? Sometimes I think that Nintendo assume that everyone are idiots. Then they prove me wrong and I love them for it. [​IMG]

    Whenever Nintendo says "player friendly," they mean they're dumbing down the game. A lot.

    They've yet to dumb down a key franchise of theirs.
