    So for those who will remember, 10 years ago Nintendo released Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess



    The best way to describe the overall affect of the game is brilliant, but dark ...

    Now this year, they've now released a remake for the Wii U!

    The question is, do you think it was worth the remake and if so why? :holmes:

    Would be interested to hear people's thoughts :holmes:

    Is it not just the same game (with better graphics)? I think they've done the same for a number of them so OoT and MM were also playable on the gamecube etc?

    Basically, although it made sense for OoT and MM imo, this time round I'm not too sure though

    :afraid:

    I'm not that fussed about a remake...for me Twilight Princess was disappointing. It marked the beginning of that hand-holdy way of making the game. In OoT and MM where you had a lot of space to explore and find out what you needed to do next through trying things out and exploring the map, whereas TP and SS it's all laid out for you and just feels like a process of jumping through steps which I didn't really enjoy.

    Playing through MM again at the moment actually :woo:

    Why?
    When they released the remakes of MM and OoT, in my mind it made sense as they were opening up the concept of these really good Zelda games to a new audience. Furthermore, it made sense that with OoT being realised in 1998 and MM in 2000, that they could have done with an update. The fact that they brought both games to handheld consoles are, in my opinion a step in the right direction.

    Now with Twilight princess, given that you will find that the generation that played it first time round have probably been waiting for the latest Zelda Wii U release, I was a little confused to the reasoning for them making the remake personally.

    I think SS over TP did this more, but I do see what you mean though. MM is still one of my favourite games :ahee:

    I thought it was just a nice looking port essentially. Brilliant game originally and I don't see an issue with bringing it to the newest console.

    To be honest I do not like all these Zelda remakes. Their purpose seems to be to bring in money with as little effort as possible.

    With TP, not this one There is rumour that the new game will have this happen, but I would need to do my research at this stage

    I know what you mean, but the main advantage of it is that it allows younger generations to appreciate the awesomeness! :ahee: (sadly, my mum didn't let me get the original, told me they were both too dark :rofl: )

    Isn't it kind of unnecessary to re-release a Wii game (at least I remember Twilight Princess being a Wii game) kinda unnecessary since the Wii U has backwards compatibility with the Wii?

    And in unrelated news, New Super Mario Bros DS is 10 years old today, as of the time I'm writing this (at least according to Google). Who knew?



    And in further unrelated news, next year Super Mario Galaxy turns 10. All these games from my childhood that I remember are turning 10!

    I liked the TP remake, though it was basically the same game with very few tweaks and improved graphics.

    I don't really know if it was worth the remake though.

    I'm a total Zelda nerd, so I bought it with the amiibo. It's beautiful and I loved it!

    But yeah, just another money-making remake
