[QUOTE] Isn't the finale of the trilogy terrible? also I read that some puzzles lost all their charm without the second screen that the DS systems gave I'd say that's debatable. The most common complaints are about the animations, the roster (many players consider the new characters aren't charismatic, while some of the returning ones aren't as sympathetic as they used to be) and the ending (as it doesn't answer all the questions from the franchise's plot). That said, most of these things are subjective. For instance, I actually like most of the new characters in ZTD (I do agree that some of the returning ones are quite unlikeable, though - then again, the same thing happened to Clover in VLR and that game was still fantastic), and I also like the idea of fragmenting the order of the story and puzzles and the decision moments (which could be compared to the Ally/Betray voting system in VLR, only more random and with much harsher consequences). It's also worth noting that most of the professional ZTD reviews are positive. In the end, it's up to the player to experience the game and find out herself/himself whether s/he enjoyed it or not. [/QUOTE] On one hand, once again there is a clever presentation/mechanic hook that has a strong narrative connection. On the other hand, some of the actual story in ZTD is hare-brained. I know some players who seriously think that the new story information that is revealed in ZTD retroactively makes the story of the series worse, and that's quite arguably true. Given that this is a series that really wants you to ponder big questions and think deeply about things, and enjoys having big clever reveals, some of the macguffins introduced in this game absolutely beggar belief. I'd even say that one of the climactic moments of the game that is intended to have deep emotional impact as a result of the combination of a big reveal and big questions completely falls flat. That said, it's still an interesting game, and I don't regret the time I spent playing it, for all my gripes with it.
