    either miyamoto is terrible at playing or the controls seem to be sloppy.
    I love the graphical style though.

    There didn`t work anything controller-wise... I think everything should work just as it does in WSR. So we know what to expect but it is unfortunate to have such a bad presentation because of these wireless-interference...

    Meh. Not impressed at all. Looks like a mash up of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. Those both games were fantastic in their art style, this one looks like it has no specific art direction. The environment looked like something out of a Mario or Sonic game IMO...

    No specific release date, all they said was development would last through the year and be released in 2011 sometime. That's as specific as I can get with the info provided. And yeah, the control issues were an unfortunate happenstance, but I'm sure they'll have the issues worked out by released if there was any. After all, we'll be getting impressions from the on floor demos. Golden sunnnnnn news on now. yeah yeah yeah

    The graphic style is like a mix between Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. Somewhat cartoony, somewhat realistic. I like it.

    Also, "if" the controls really were sloppy, then expect them to fix that before it gets released. The preview trailer after the Live demonstration showed the controls being much or responsive.

    I don`t think it was the games problem, since EpicMickey had the same Problem with the Pointer and the wireless input but it didn`t infect it as much... It was clearly a technical problem!

    [​IMG] Bleck on the graphics! I wish they would have stuck with the Twilight version.

    Looks like there were some serious perspective issues, but I´m sure the finished product will have most of that ironed out.

    Would like to try the controls hand on. Seems a bit odd, but I´ve never played a first party Nintendo game that had poor control.

    And it´s Zelda. No matter how lame the graphics, you can bet it´s gonna be a game worth playing.

    (edit) for me lame = Wind Waker version. O.K. for DS. Not for GC or Wii.

    The graphical style reminds me of Team Fortress 2 somewhat. It looks awesome!

    Looks fine to me. Looks like Twilight Princess with Wind Waker graphics slapped on top of it, which doesn't bother me at all. Just awaiting a release date now.

    Well I wasn't blown away by the graphics... hopefully the gameplay will change my mind because I love Zelda!
