I dont care about Gamespot anymore..... I feel like protesting the review.  This has been said before, and I will say it again, Jeff seems completely biased toward Wii in general.

That is just plain rediculous, how on earth does it not get below 90 on any other site (http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages4/928519.asp) but of course Gamespot has to give it a low score

These forums are going to explode...

I personally think the disparity between this score and scores that other sites have been giving it is a bit suspicious, but then again, I haven't played the game, so GameSpot may be right on the ball here.

This is just one opinion on the game, remember folks. And in the grand scheme the review should have no effect on whether you enjoy the game more or less than Jeff did.

I can't believe the game didn't break 9.0 because he gave the sound a freakin 7.  I'm not going to lie, this is some BS on a large scale.  I'll still be getting the game for sure but man I'm glad I'm smart enough to not pass up on the best Zelda game since Ocarina just because it got an 8.8, because frankly after reading the review and the cons I just can't agree with him.  It's his opinion, and I respect that, but it sure isn't one that a lot of people and myself included, seem to agree with.

Jeff probably gave it some more points off because there are no achievements

Funny thing is Jeff and Matt at IGN have completely different opinions on the Wii controls.

i wonder if so many people get so upset theyll do what happened with neverwinter nights 2 and be like "oops that was...a joke!" the  put up a higher one

i wont complain although the perfect 10 everywhere else and below 9 here is a bit strange, however it is rather dissapointing to see that a probably amazing game will go down on this site in history with a not so amazing review, wont stop me from picking it up sunday though!

Lets see... how many of you have played the game. Its a game designed from the ground up as a GC game so obviously the GC version will get a better score... :roll:

I hadn't given any real credence to the "Jeff teh biased" but this is interesting given the game was averaging 98% through 9 reviews. "So as impressive of a game as it is, Twilight Princess seems like it could have been so much more with a few presentational updates and more effective and interesting uses of the Wii's unique control scheme." If this is his main complaint on top of the controller speaking quality, the GameCube version ought to score high 9 (even though I can see it's not going to).

Yeah, after reading all the other reviews of this game on other websites, I can say that I'll never take Gamespot reviewing seriously ever again. IGN for me, too. It's nice to have reviews from people who are actually interested in Nintendo. Sorry, Jeff, your bias is as clear as day now. I had a feeling he had one when I heard him critisizing people who were excited and cheered at the Nintendo press conference at E3... I mean, come on.

I am as equally pissed as you all but do you remember what gamespot gave Majoras Mask? I believe it was an 8.3. IGN gave it a 9.9 which I think that it deserved. IGN will be posting their review tonight also and I still think they will give it a 10/10.
