The Zelda CD-i games were GREAT!



Well, Wand of Gamelon and Faces of Evil, anyway. According to this guy, John Szczepaniak (Possibly the most difficult to spell/pronounce surname ever.), who writes about his fond experiences playing both games, the circumstances surrounding their creation and an interview with the games' creator, Dale DeSharone.

It's actually a very good read and raises some very interesting points, the most prevalent of which, I think, being "3) You have probably not played either game, and if you have, you've possibly not gotten very far."

Now, I have. I'm an absolute raving Zelda fanboy and I made it my business to track down a CD-i for the express purpose of playing these games. I also agree with him, except I'd go a step further. In his article, John mentions that the cinematics are dire. I disagree whole-heartedly. I love their cheesy, late 80's cheap Dragons Lair ripoff style. I love the camp voice acting. Do I think they're fantastic games? No. But I don't think they're bad.

So please, go and give that article a read, if you've got a spare few minutes to kill. It's well worth it and hopefully it might convince a few of you to hunt down a CD-i and... No? Oh, well, alright. Read it anyway.
