I have been an avid fan of the Zelda franchise from its infancy. I've fond memories of each and every new Zelda game, all the way from The old 8 bit Legend of Zelda back in the '80s through Ocarina of Time in 1998 and beyond. I even suffered through the weakest entry into the series, Wind Waker, and found it to be at least passable.
But Twilight Princess is a whole new animal (literally speaking!) The game mechanics are superior to anything seen before, there are no perspective issues such as those that detracted from Ocarina of Time. The music, presentation, and story are the best I've seen in a Zelda adventure - what was once easily written off as a children's game has integrated depth, character, and a more brooding tone that will interest even the most jaded gamer.
This is not to say that young children would fail to appreciate this game, it is still Zelda, and therefore intuitive and engaging at every level.
From navigating the Twilight as a noble wolf to fighting boar mounted orclike creatures while on your faithful steed Epona, (in scenes obviously inspired by Lord of the Rings) I guarantee that you will have a fantastic time of saving Hyrule in Twilight Princess.
