No, but you should be.
I hate the fact that this was ported to Wii. It was sort of a wise business decision, but the customer is being screwed here. I must admit that I find it annoying that so many people will support Nintendo to the point of actually finding the bright side of being screwed over.
This decision does not benefit the consumer!
I personally wanted my last traditional, quintessential Zelda game in the same vein as
. Seeing things from my perspective, realize that I have not played what I consider to be a fantastic Zelda game since 2000.
Now, of course I can still buy Twilight Princess for the Gamecube. But, then I'm left thinking, is this the best version? It is not a good position to be in. It causes you subconsious paranoia. If I get just the Wii version, then I won't get my last traditional Zelda.
If Nintendo truly wanted to benefit consumers, they would allow you to insert the Gamecube version into the Wii so that one disc covers both gameplay types. I'm unaware of whether or not this is technologically possible. I don't see why not, personally. By doing that, however, nobody would buy the Wii version, and they would lose money (or rather, make less money)
Now I'm probably going to be spending $100 for what is essentially the same game.
is kind of seen as Zelda Wii. That makes the announcement of the true Zelda Wii a lot less exciting to me. Unless, and this this is a very scary thought, Twilight Princess IS Zelda Wii . . .
What this boils down to is Nintendo realizing that they can bolster their Wii lineup with almost no effort, at the expense of the hardcore fan. Forget that we could probably be playing Twilight Princess right now if it were not for this decision.
So I hate it. I also think it goes without saying that Twilight Princess as a Gamecube game amazes visually, but as a Wii title, it underwhelms, and it makes me skeptical about the sytem's power as a whole.
Lastly, the Wii functions in
don't seem to offer anything beyond incredible. The fishing looks really good, but everything else . . . meh. Oh look! I can select my items by pointing at them (which in actuality seems less intuitive). And instead of rotating my control bad for a spin attack, I can rotate my entire wrist! (come on now, that's a very frivilous use). The sole good use in gameplay (outside of fishing) is the bow.
