when i started playing this game i wasnt estatic it starts off rather slow, having you do odd jobs and such which gives you time to learn the controls, enviroment and such, then the game picked up almost imidiate, zelda games have never been very fast paced, but with the wii remote things like aiming, and grappling are more precise which adds a faster element to the gameplay and combat. I really like the hidden skills as well this was an excelent addition in buiding on what ww and oot had set forth, my only real gripe about this game is that no voice acting tends to make the game feel like its missing something which is why i marked down the sound a point, the music is great, as well as the in action sequences, the control are really a blast, and give another element to a zelda game that sets the bar for future action titles in this genre. this is one of those games that seems to only come around once in a blue moon. even the side missions, such as fishing are excelently done. i would highly recomend this game to anyone that has a wii, or a gamecube for that matter. for the wii it seemed like the wiiremote really made gameplay a lot easier and precise. gamers looking to blow a lot of time exploring will love this title. Also the addition of the cave of ordeals was pretty cool, test your skill in fifty levels of hell. i recently finished this title and am looking forward to future zelda titles. This series is just on another level from other action adventure titles point blank.
