The story starts with Link as a Ranch Hand with his trusted horse, Epona. It continues with Link running various errands around his hometown. It may seem silly at first, but if you pay attention, you can see that this teaches you about the fundamentals about the game and gives link basic items instrumental to his journey. Then things go awry. How? I'm not spoiling anymore of the story. Speaking of which, the story is deep, intricate, intelligent, and intriguing, but i have to take points away for not having voice-overs. Good VO would make the story and characters much better. Almost every console game has voice-overs at this day and age, and it's very disappointing that this game missed the boat, especially since how long the game has been in production. The game play more than makes up for that. The swordplay improves upon Wind Waker. Link has many new moves and items that you can unlock to make battling certain creatures easier. They fit the more realistic world of Twilight Princess effectively. The dungeons are also a highlight. There are 9 in all and are well designed These dungeons are complex and will require you to use your brain. They also encourage you to use your items in unique ways as well. This makes the game lengthy and involving. There are also plenty of rewarding side quests as well.
In short, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is one of the greatest games of all time, and is more than worthy of the name of the franchise.
