I think voice acting would work well in a Zelda game, and I would like to see it in future Zelda games. I would have liked to see it in this one just to see what it would be like right now, but I guess not. I think that voice acting makes you really get connected more with the characters, feel what they're feeling a bit more and all that. I'm not a big fan of Link talking or anything, though. I'm fine with the grunts and HYAAAAs.
I totally agree with this. As I've said before, I'm too much of a traditionalist. The mystery of Link should always be retained. As far as I know, Link's always been a mute, hasn't he? If you take away that, you'll be taking away an important part of his character, & he'll lose some of his appeal. I've always liked him as a mute. I really don't mind all the HYAAAA's & soft sounds & all that from Link, I think it suits him quite well. The quiet, but brave type.
