I'd make a guess that some people are at that delicate age where anything that looks to cartoony brings into question their masculinity and/or maturity?Irridium said:I'm with your side. I never understood why the art style was so hated either.tomtom94 said:I get quite irritated by this, so I apologise if it seems I'm ranting and starting a flame war.Andothul said:There a difference between Zelda looking cartoony like wind waker and zelda have stylized realism aka Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess.tomtom94 said:To those of you complaining about the cel-shading and cartoony style - when was Zelda ever a realistic-looking game?
Ocarina of Time still features plenty of bright colours.
I think Skyward Sword should be excellent. I need to finish Twilight Princess first though.
This game looks like the former and it disappoints me greatly.
Right, now this I don't understand.
Why does the graphical style matter so much? Zelda has always been popular for its gameplay and as long as that is sound- what's the problem?
Was there this sort of outcry with Red Steel 2? (there probably was, actually)
Wind Waker was a gorgeous game in my opinion. The world sucked me in far better than Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess ever did. (they looked good - they just didn't immerse and absorb me as Wind Waker did)
I'm sorry but if you can't look past the graphics to the gameplay - the core of Zelda - then that's your problem. Don't make it anyone els'es.
It didn't detract from the gameplay at all. Wind Waker was still really, really fun.
OT: Glad to hear that the controls actually work. Because I was a little worried after the initial demo shown on stage.
As for the new controls, from what it sounds like I've been waiting for something like this ever since I mastered the Die By the Sword VSIM mouse controls over 10 years ago. I doubt I'll be able to severe limbs, let alone pick them up and beat poor limbless saps with them, and I also doubt Link will be shouting colourful taunts in a British accent, but I'm praying to God Buddah Muhammed and Xenu that the gameplay delivers!
