IGN on Zelda: Twilight Princess (GCN)

I think IGN hit the nail on the head with their assessment of Twilight Princess for GameCube: “As someone who has played both the GameCube and Wii versions of Twilight Princess, I can confidently state that I prefer the latter for its handful of extras, including what I consider to be enhanced controls and an exclusive 16:9 widescreen mode. That being said, though, I can certainly understand why purists might want to stick with the more conventional controls of the GCN build and as far as a traditional setup goes, Twilight Princess is definitely as good as it gets.”

At the same time, and despite my liking for Twilight Princess on the Wii, it doesn’t feel like a “true” Wii title for me. Granted I think the controls add to the gameplay (usually), but I don’t think the game fully branched out from its GameCube roots having been originally designed for that platform. Anyone feel the same? It’s fun, but in a different kind of hybrid motion sensing way. Doesn’t feel as interface fresh as Wii Sports, Madden, Excite Truck, etc.
