    Knowing I'm going to start an argument...I'm not surprised. It's a Gamecube game on a "next-gen" console.

    8.8 is not a bad review and sounds about right to me.

    Discuss.

    GameSpot's reviews are always lower than others. Look at the low PS3 ratings that they gave. Madden 07 only 7.9?!? BS, I'm waiting for REAL reviews to start rolling in.

    I'm guessing this is because of the removale of day and night changes and the size and tremendous feeling of the game isn't what's expected.

    I´ve read it already it´s like:

    Everything is great but it´s not innovative, and the Wiimote use is not perfect.

    8.8 it´s nice I think.

    I´ll wait for Wind Waker 2 -Damn wewantitmature people [​IMG] -

    Out of 10 reviews 8.8 is the lowest with the average being 9.9/10. The Gamespot review's main bad points about the game were misplaced sound and imprecise controls, yet the other reviews say the controls are perfect...seems to me like a case of getting used to a new style of control.

    Wow, 8.8. Who cares, it still got the GREAT stamp.

    this is a real hater review! I'm glad they pick it apart rather than gush all over it. The latter option doesn't help me to make an informed decision.

    After all, I wasn't a big Wind Waker fan, and few people seemed to give that game the bashing it deserved. Lack of dungeons, endles sailing... blaaaaargh!

    misplaced sound is indeed an issue... i wonder what they mean with it...

    btw, the navi sound is pretty annoying, i hope there's a way to disable it

    I'm glad they're being hard on it - there is a legacy to live up to, and all the launch titles are going to be picked apart! We're all fanboys who are going to buy regardless of what GAMESPOT or anyone else gives for a review. [​IMG]

    Well the review did point out that you get the same results if you just shake the remote. Also it's more of an extended OoT than a brand new approach like Majora's Mask and Wind Waker.

    8.8 is still good.

    This sucks!

    8.8?! The sequel to the Greatest game of all time? WTF?! I dont quite understand...it's so inconsistent with all the other review scores! Ganespot's always been quite credible...what have they done!

    Credible? GS has had a lovely string of crap reviews for a while now.

    What's the rule that states that every review needs to be consistent with each other? [​IMG]
    Some tolerance of differences in opinions you people have here. [​IMG]

    lol. Bite me. Its human nature to dislike something you disagree with. I just happen to disagree with Gamespot ALOT more than I do with IGN.

    Wii-specific elements feel tacked on; graphics and sound sometimes go from nostalgic to dated.

    Wow, what a shitty game. I mean sometimes that graphics aren't amazing. 1 whole point down!

    And I do think that these fatties just don't want to move their jiggly arms around.
