Wiicked Action...

Despite the innocent name, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the darkest Zelda game to date. It's also the first game in the series to receive a "Teen" Rating". Which means if you're under 13, you might have to bribe your older brother to buy it for you.

As expected, the game has many hidden secrets, plenty of challenging puzzles to solve, and tons of clashes with sword swinging. Naturally, there's no blood and gore. Although the odd person has been struck by a flying controller - So if you're a particularly mean person you've finally got an excuse for "accidentally" giving your little brother a black eye.

Link's horse plays a major role in the game. He can even swing his sword while riding Epona, which makes for an awesome horseback battle against a clan of thugs.

The game has a great atmosphere, and I always play in the dark - Which allows the eerie, blood-curling screams of the shadow creatures sound all the more haunting.
