Whoever made them change the artstyle to this one needs a pay raise, tp was far too gloomy and dull, this on the other hand is vibrant and really stands out.

Heaven knows we didn't need more brown and grey in Zelda, tp was way more than enough.

Twilight Princess looked good, Wind Waker's art style was stunnimg, but from what I've seen Skyward Sword looks more like a cheap PS2 platformer.

I seen the vids last night and it looks a hell of a lot more colourful than TP.

You're kidding right?

This looks better than both those games IMO.

As long as he's not claiming that it's delayed while they record all the voice acting...

Surely this is going to raise some hate from someone?!

Not me though. I loved the darker Twilight game, but then I also loved Wind Waker's cel shaded style. Both convey atmosphere in different ways.

So I'll go along with this. If the locations and environments can be fresh and interesting then it'll be great. In terms of art style, most of all, variation is key imo.

I didn't really like the art style in WW, but this direction provides a nice balance between that and what was seen in TP.

I can't believe I'm going to say this after being a huge Zelda fan, but... I thought the graphics were a bit 'meh'. I didn't really feel blown away by this. It just looked a bit generic and didn't seem to set the standard that previous Zelda titles have done... god I hate myself :cry:

No hairy, I echo your thoughts too. I just thought it didn't look any better than Twilight Princess, which is a four year old GC game! I was impressed with the graphics of Monster Hunter Tri and Super Mario Galaxy 2, but this has left me a little disappointed. If we've had a delay to make the game look weak, well then that's just a real shame.

I remember someone from Nintendo saying how MH 3 made them think they have to make Zelda look better, but this clearly isn't the case
