Very Good

Best in the Series

Zelda has never been a game with great combat but the creative puzzles and ways to defeat enemies give the game its well deserved critical acclaim. Skyward Sword is the best out of the bunch. The graphics are not great but the game is colorful and doesn't feel as dated as most Wii games. I'm glad they returned to the cartoon-ish style over the realistic look from Twilight Princess which, in my opinion, looked muddy and was ugly to look at. The story is basic and told through walls of text. The main, and really only attraction of this game is the game play but it does that so well that there's no way I could give this game a bad score. There are at least 40 hours of fun game play if you try to complete the game 100%.

And I haven't had a problem with the motion controls like other people seem to have. They seem pretty accurate to me.

Pros:
+ Creative puzzle and ways to fight enemies
+ Over a 40 hour game potentially

Cons:
- I wish Nintendo would start realizing while graphics and a deep story don't make a game good automatically, those aspects do still matter. Game play is of course the most important element but I still wish Zelda could at least have a voice actor so the game can seem a bit more cinematic.

I got this game a few months ago and it is amazing. It has an amazing storyline. Just don't get this game if you easily get frustrated because it is really hard. You need the wii motion plus though. Amazing graphics. Awesome controls. There are only 3 flaws. There are a gazillion cutscenes, you always need to press z to make Link face forward, and you don't get the bow until you are more than halfway through. You actually shoot the bow as you would shoot a real bow. Definitely buy this game. It takes a while to beat.
