    I really hope they're making a second game. This game is a classic to me.

    Another reason why I'm glad I chose the PS3.

    OK, I'm not a Zelda fan and I'm too young to have been a retro gamer. Will I have any measure of fun with this game?

    These are epic. Lol at the tetris one! Im suprised at a lack of a mario one..

    No, 3D dot engine. Very different, and TONS cooler. If you liked the Zelda games on the Game Boy/GBA, but always wanted to control Link in 3D, this is the perfect game (for PS3 owners) Also, ROFL @ Tobli's TRIPLE post XD

    lego graphics engine ?

    Garnsr: 360 exclusives falling behind? That sounds like a fanboy statement to me. I don't want to buy a PS3 because it doesn't have what i loved about the PS1&2. On topic: I loved the ones with final fantasy, and dragon quest.

    PS3's are expensive and money is tight garnsr, it's not that easy for people to just go buy one nowadays. That being said, I do agree that it's on the upswing. But I digress, this game looks enjoyable, but the art is what really has me intrigued. They are choosing to limit themselves with this style, but are actually creating really charming work.

    I've played almost all of those games, and they're obvious when I see them here, but I wouldn't know too many just as screens in the game. I'm anxiously awaiting its release, though.

    You mean 360, right? Putting it on Xbox would do nothing for that dead system.
  • chrisat928 - April 20, 2010 2:54 a.m.

    Loading screens.
  • garnsr - April 20, 2010 3:47 a.m.

    And at this point I think it's time for everyone to get a PS3, the exclusives on 360 are falling way behind lately. Despite the guys on TalkRadar seeming to know almost nothing about the system, it does seem to be on the upswing.

    I wish this game was on Xbox
