Before I start this review, we should make two things plain. First off, we're fully aware that the Zelda games aren't really RPGs. Not by a proper, strict definition, anyway. We love the games, though, and when readers began to request we cover them, we were happy to oblige.

Managed to get hands-on time myself at Nintendo's post-E3 event in London in July, so I had played it, but seeing the whole game being run through I got to see a lot of other smaller changes that improved the overall experience greatly. With the sailing aspects being sped up and streamlined, as well as the Triforce quest being shortened, it really makes playing through over and over much more tempting, and will likely mean more people won't put it down at that Triforce quest this time!

Character models still use the same number of polygons by the looks of it (just an HD coating on them), and the game shouldn't really be the price it is, to be fair, but definitely a great port and great game overall. One to pick up at a cheaper price when I get a Wii U eventually!
