Zelda is a fun franchise. Not my favourite, but usually really reliable in giving a good time. Some of the handheld ones were lacking IMO, but nearly all the console ones (save for Majora's Mask) delivered a great experience.
I hope it pulls through again, especially with all the hype around the new Zelda. It may be pretty, but I hope it performs. The Wii controls shown at E3, especially the aiming, weren't jiving very well with me though.
