Sound quality wise, I don't think you will have any complaints, playing through a good set of headphones it's very good quality, in fact I'd forgotten how lovely the tunes are and just how many of them there are too.

Yeah, I think it would be a good time to play through Wind Waker before Skyward Sword, that's what I'm gonna be doing anyway. 8)
Still trying to get Wind Waker. It seems to be getting more expensive too, have to bite the bullet I think.

Skyward is looking lovely, much more appealing than TP for me. I just hope, as you know, they haven't got ott on the filtering effects. I would like a bright and vibrant looking adventure like WW>

Okami is a great alternative too, you should definitely check that out Mozza if you haven't already.

Thanks very much for the suggestions. I'll be giving Beyond Good & Evil a go for defo. Always wanted to play the others as well.

Did we not already flog this topic to death????

No I don't and I personally think the 98% score is beyond a joke. I have often questioned some of the irrational scores RG have given games over the years but this just takes the p1ss. Hell I know the RG lot are Nintendo fanboys (for whatever reason and often to the detrement of an otherwise good magazine) but this is just quite honestly embaressing.

Objectively, I can't see how the game could be valued at less than 90 odd percent. You don't have to be a fanboy to see that.

A 98% review score for what is effectively The Legend of Zelda: A New Link of Paint? Wow! :shock:

So just because it's been re-released, it somehow got worse and doesn't deserve the 98%? Regardless of what you think on the subject of re-releases, it doesn't effect the quality of the game.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Ocarina of Time is one of the greatest games ever made and it more than deserves the score I awarded it. You're just gonna have to deal with it I'm afraid. You wait until Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary gets reviewed...

Anyway it doesn't matter. The game's been reviewed, I'm not changing my opinion (you won't believe how come I came to giving it 100%) so I'll depart this thread and let you go back to your moaning. Honestly. Sometimes I think some of you don't even like videogames...
