was a little disappoint that I need the motion plus thing to play the game (didn't read all the info about the game, was excited to play the newest Zelda game). After spending $18 to get a used adapter for the motion plus. I'm now on my way to saving Zelda.. Love this game! The new controls took a bit to get used too though. But after that it great! Just wish I could find or learn how swim under water! Guess that later in the game!

What I think- I love Zelda, Ocarina of Time was my favorite one. This is now my favorite. This game is hard to play while laying down so you will have to stand or sit which is good. The wii motion + Works Great!! You can upgrade equipment like Slingshot to ScatterShot with items. The controls are hard to get used to at first but then there fun! Instead of Epona or a boat you use a Bird Forgot the name...
Story- You (Link) live in Skyloft in well the Sky. Nobody has ever gone below the clouds because they think its Dangerous and the birds wont go through the clouds. Theres a Ceremony going on and all you gotta do is get the Bird Statue from whoever has it. But Groose steals your bird and you gotta find it. Hes pretty much the "bully". Your best Friend Zelda after you win, asks to go riding but when you do she falls. You wake up in her Dads house and you follow this "Thing" After a while the "Things" name is Fi. She pretty muck replaces Navi. She helps you on your Quest! Then your long, fun Adventure Begins
Graphics- Its a mixture of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, my opinion, I love it.
Verdict- I gave this a Ten because this is my favorite or 2nd favorite game, hard to choose but by far is the Best Zelda Game ever. The game has 50-100 hours of gameplay, thats good. You like Zelda, sword/adventure games then try this game out! If unsure rent it..i bought mine.
I bought Skyward Sword for the gold motion+ controller
I got all heart pieces, upgraded all items, finished all side quests, got all goddess cubes (treasure charts of skyward sword)
Total play time 51 hours 32 min 22 sec right before final boss battle.
Not alot of games are better than ocarina of time for me, but this one was. Not by alot, but still better. bottom line, Rent this one if you can't afford to buy it, if you can, please buy it so they can keep making games like this i loved everything about it.
