When evil darkness enshrouds the land of Hyrule, a young farm boy named Link must awake the hero - and the animal - within. Of course at the beginning of the game, you can change the name (and put yours). When Link travels to the Twilight Realm, he transforms into a wolf and must scour the land with the help of a mysterious girl named Midna. He must explore the vast land of Hyrule in order to find out the mystery behind its plunge into darkness. Along your journey you have to enlist the aid of friendly folk, solve puzzles and battle your way through deadly dungeons! Link besides his trusty sword and shield, will use his bow and arrows, fight while on horseback and use a wealth of other items, both new and old.
The combat controls are more conventional on the GameCube version, since you won't be shaking the controller around to attack (when using a Wii Nunchuck controller). But to be honest, the Wii controls actually end up feeling more precise in a direct comparison. It's easier and faster to aim your arrows, boomerang, or other targeted items using the Wii Remote. There is a lot to say about this game as far as its story, characters and gameplay, but I prefer rather not, as it will take plenty of pages to describe, whist there are a lot of info in Internet for this gem by Nintendo.
Twilight Princess is a great game that stays extremely true to the Zelda franchise's past offering a gameplay system bosses that must be seen to be believed.
Gamecube offers great graphics here with colorful backgrounds and smooth cartoonish style character animated reactions. Even though Twilight Princess was released first on Nintendo's Wii, it was originally designed for the older GameCube system, but both versions are quite similar though in terms of graphics quality. The only noticeable difference between the two comes from a lack of 16:9 widescreen support for the Gamecube, resulting in many of the story sequences being letterboxed when viewed in 4:3. However, the game does have 480p support.
