I think a lot of people either hate Twilight Princess to death or praise it and call it the best Zelda game ever. I am in the middle. Twilight Princess had many flaws but it still pulled off a very good gaming experience for me. The good things in the game overcame the bad of it in my opinionm but the bad things such as Ganondorf's introduction, a story that starts out great and then slowely dies, and how Zant turned out, do kind of add an uneeded weight to the game.
Ganondorf's intro appears to be what most people hate abou the game. The game starts out with a great menacing looking villain, Zant. Zant appeared to me as a great new villain at first, later on his character is destroyed by Ganondorf revealing to be themain villain to the story. When Zant hinted at having a greater person that he serves, I thought it would be a new character and was expecting something entriely different. After Arbiter's Grounds, the story throws a plot twist at you, Ganon is the bad guy. Which, as I previously stated, destroyed my expectations for Zant being the big boss. Ganondorf could've been implemented better into the story.
After Ganondorf is revealed to be the big boss, another curveball is thrown. Zant is a wimp and is nothing but Ganondorf's puppet. That destroyed Zant for me. He turned out to act like a toddler, having rage quits when Link beats him and acting very choppy and unbalanced in battle, very unlike what we saw of him before. To me, he was just wasted and felt like Nintendo had soemthing good going and then threw it out the window. I saw a lot of potential to Zant, but that was wasted.
Those are the things that stuck out to me, other than that I think that the game was majorly hyped. People were dying to play this game, and with great expectations, a little problem in the game, such as Ganon's intro, turns into a big problem because people were expecting the perfect Zelda game. I had huge expectations for this game when my friend told me about it, but all that hype was crushed. Twilight Princess is still a fantastic game, and one of the best Zelda games ever, but the hype that it carried for me, also destroyed it in a way.
