    I have a copy (with bonus disk) in my hands now!

    Was on pre-order from Game web site and arrived this morning.

    But I'm at work and I'm sure 7 hours will never feel so long until I can get home and see if it is really worth 10/10 (according to the box art).

    Now only 6 hours 55 minutes and counting....

    Cheers,
    Paul

    It's a mini-guide, not an in-depth players guide

    I desperately want a platinum cube! If the trade in on cubes wasn't so low, I'd seriously consider trading in my purple one for a platinum one. I get wound up about this. I wanted a cube, got one as soon as I could. Then, THEN, they release the s****y silver one to try and tempt people to get one, when they don't even want one! If you're desperate for a platinum gamecube, or a green xbox, chances are you've had a stock one for ages already.
    P.S is zelda good? I've never been into zelda, but this time round I think I'm tempted.. Is it Zelda Newbie friendly?

    Hi,

    The Platinum Cube does look quite cool, and matches my silver/platinum Gamboy Advance SP nicely.

    Pardonthewait,
    I have never really played much Zeelda before, but the gamecube one is very easy to get into, and yes it is a very good game.

    This is my first experience of a Zelda game and I must say I'm loving it. I was ready to go back to Mario Sunshine during the start of the game because it's soooo tedious but I'm glad I kept playing cos I can't put it down. I was a bit sceptical about the cartoony graphics too but they work so well and I think fit the nature of the game.

    Can't wait to start on Ocinara either....:clap:

    Might have to look into that... Personally, I love the graphics. Video I've seen of the game makes it look just like a cartoon, and I don't see how that's bad... It just looks so fluid, and his face is amazingly expressive. The animation team did a fine job.

    Got my discs this morning from Amazon

    Yes it comes in a LE gold case with the bonus disc on a little plastic inlay (ala Resident Evil)

    Bloody good game btw...played it for 5 minutes and I already loved the graphics. Played it for about an hour or so this morning and it's really impressed me :) Should be a great game

    Just how Limited is the Limited Edition with Bonus Disc

    As WWW.Play.Com still have them instock , so they have not sold many on Pre-order or they just rec'd shed loads of Zelda with the Bonus Disc :confused:

    Also There's loads forsale on Ebay

    To me it's not sold that well , or it's been a Big con just to get people to buy on Pre-Order

    What do you all Think

    How limited? Not very. Most shops were selling the 2-disc version today.

    I'd guess about 500,000 were produced for PAL regions

    To those who have it:

    Anyone else think 'best graphcis ever'?

    It's absolutlely incredible IMO and easily one of the best-looking games I've ever seen.


    People are entitled to think it looks rubbish, but they're wrong. Simple as that IMO.

    Nintendo made a very wise move by cel-shading it. There is so much emotion and detail in Link's face that it wouldn't have been possible if the game was like the Spaceworld version.
