A engaging game through to the end!

Quite early on in the game you first transform in to the wolf link and meet Midna, an impish creature that rides around on your back in wolf form and gives you advice on how to defeat bosses etc. However if you don't like being the wolf link then it could be a problem because you are switching between forms for most of the game until you eventually learn to control it about 3/4 of the way through.
Like the other Zelda games there is a new weapon to get about halfway through each of the 8 dungeons except the final one, which are needed to defeat the boss of the dungeons. This Zelda game has one of the things Zelda fans have been wanting for ages: A sword duel on the final boss.
Throughout the game there are many small sidequests to complete including a bonus dungeon after beating the game which is a survival trial comprising of 50 levels with many enemies on each. Not too hard if you bring plenty of healing potions!
There are a few different weapons and armour throughout the game although many of these are seldom used, such as the hawkeye; a zoom in tool for the bow which sounds very useful but you will in fact hardly ever use at all.
Overall, I think it is a thouroghly addictive game, right through to the end, although it could be said that it lacks, replayable qualities. My overall score is 9 out of 10.
