    I did. Part of the reason's probably because it was the first Zelda game that I played properly

    I kinda agree with the Zelda ranking.. at least the for the console ones.
    For the handheld ones.. I would put PH lower and Minish Cap higher [​IMG]

    Best item ever to me was the Magnetic Gloves in Oracle of Seasons! Too bad it was never used again.
    The double clawshot is still cool, though..

    Good Score for Phantasy Star.

    Best Zelda: A Link to the Past (But still a good list - who cares about the oder! [​IMG])

    I would've put Majora's Mask at 7 at the very lowest, and maybe bumped down Phantom Hourglass a bit, but other than that it's a pretty good list.

    Disappointing scores, and that tier list sucks.

    i think all the scores seem like they accurate specially because they are low...
    zelda games, well i havent played many but i did manage to almost finish minish cap (before formatting) and it is better than PH though i still have to get used to ocarina to actually say much about it... good game so far
    They said HM SI will have a similar but easier gameplay to IoH which is actually pretty good (nice rating too)
    what i am surprised at is nostalgia (was expected atleast 8) and TMNT which is not worth mentioning
    Thanks for the info gran

    Good scores for PS0 and Dragonball. I was hoping that the TMNT game would be good but it looks like it isn't.

    PH was probably the worst handheld game to date, should be at the bottom right next too zelda II

    Sorry for nit-picking, but isn't this the December issue?

    Edit: Yes it is [​IMG]

    Not too surprised that the TMNT DS game did poorly. I kind of agree with their assessment of Nostalgia, though. After putting in about 10-11 hours with it, it feels like a 7-7.5 to me. It's really tight, really polished, but the story is lame.

    From what I could glean of the review, it basically boils down to the issues people had with ReShelled. It's antiquated and button-mashy. No platforming or real adventure elements -- just straight up, run-through-a-level beat'em-up. For folks like us, it will probably be worth fooling with for a very short time, but I can see why they might score it low when the asking price is sure to be about $30 at retail.

    Quick edit: Looks like Gamepro has weighed in on TMNT: Arcade Attack, too. Not great, either: http://www.gamepro.com/article/reviews/212...-arcade-attack/

    If i ordered the zelda games that i have played, i would go

    1. Ocarina of Time (most epic)
    2. Majora's Mask (not as long as OOT, but awesome)
    3. Wind Waker (most beautiful)
    4. Minish Cap (fun little game)
    5. Phantom Hourglass (not as well played as wind waker)
    6. Twilight Princess (pretty shit effort)

    I haven't played any of the original zeldas for more than 5 minutes... yet... who knows.

    I'm half way through wind waker and 3/4 way through majora's mask (virtual console [​IMG]).
    As for twilight princess, that game was boring and I stopped playing it ages ago.

    Hemm, funnily enough, my list seems like it's ordered by release date...

    Reading this I of course knew number 1 had to be Ocarina of Time and A Link To The Past had to be number 2. It's just basic Zelda ranking knowledge.

    I would scan the pages if my freaking scanner would work.
