Nope I like it.
People complain about cell-shaded GFX a'la wind waker but I see nothing wrong; it give nice vibrant colours like LTTP and the other top-down ones. Link's model isn't 'toon' and I like that too, so it's kinda like the best of both worlds.

On top of that it looks like some nice new gameplay additions and stuff as usual.
but also not too much that they show, again as usual

Exactly. Wind waker's cel-shading was okay, but it didn't provide the feel of a polygonal 3d game.

This incorporates more realistic 3d graphics with cel-shading, with the cel-shading giving much more color. So it's more like adding a vibrant touch to those 3d zelda games of the past.

I think I was just expecting something completely different then. I don't know, it's just really different than I think what a lot of people expected.

That Majora's Mask look fucking epic!
I dont like the new Link, He just doesnt look like link, He looks gay, I mean that, he looks like he's gay. He look's inbeetween teen and adult anbd it does'nt look good, It looks too softened down to make it better for a younger audience. Ocarina of time as a teen looked epic, Windwaker you played as the kid link, looked epic, But this doesnt in my oppinion, its just not Link :(

Personally, I like it. Dunno what the crap you people are whining about, but I'm looking forward to it.

Also, methinks some of you have too high standards.

Lol, WHAT?

Are you even looking at the same game, man?
This looks exactly like OoT link but with better graphics and a more badass looking sword sheath on his back. You sure you're not looking at something else?

How about you're a teen. They did cel-shading because it looks good and takes next to no toll on your hardware. We all know how the Wii is about that. Besides, Nintendo's big appeal for a lot of their games has always been their whimsical, technicolor worlds meant for both the deadened minds of children and the deadened minds of adults. Cel-shading is perfect for that.

Zelda is a girl, I think you meant Link...

Also, look for some screenshots on the inventory Link will have. Unless it was just for the demo they showed at E3, apparently Link will only have a total of eight items.

Looks... Pretty good actually.
And this is coming from a fan who's found something major to complain about in every zelda game after the N64.
