How Could Anyone Dislike The Legends of Zelda: Twilight Princess?

Surely commenter Daemon_Gildas isn't the only one that wasn't completely in love with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's time to step forward and be heard in today's Speak Up on Kotaku. We promise Nintendo isn't looking, much.

Does anyone else dislike Twilight Princess? I honestly felt like is was all of the worst things in the Zelda series, rolled into one game. It had bland colors, goofy-looking characters, and kept Link just as emotionless as ever.


I don't *hate* the game, mind you, but it definitely didn't feel like a strong title to me. It rehashed only the "standard" items (which I'll admit, the Boomerang felt improved), and the new additions felt completely worthless outside of their respective dungeons. Might as well they just have been keys.

I dunno, maybe it's just because it came after the magnificent Wind Waker, but I truly did not like Twilight Princess. Which is a shame, because I loved the thought of a "Lord of the Rings-styled" Link.
