Twilight Princess was a really good game other than that wolf stuff in the first couple of hours. A couple of the best Zelda dungeons in that game.
But the way Nintendo handled that game really took a lot of the shine away. The game was developed towards a 2005 release, which would have been a perfect moment to release that game. But with the Wii on the horizon and a serious lack of "serious" games for that system Nintendo decided to simply shelf a finished GC game for a year and release it on the Wii as a "new" game. In the year TP laid there rotting in the Nintendo vaults the Xbox 360 was released and everybody got to play games like Gears of War, Fight Night 3, Rainbow Six Vegas and TES Oblivion. Pushing some of the standards for console gaming beyond what it had been in the previous year.
Just overall an extremely cynical way to handle this scenario by Nintendo that made the game seem worse than it actually was.
