Zelda Topper - Loved it

This game was great, better than the Zelda Princess game in some ways, but it had it's downfalls as well. With Princess you could skip a lot of the dialog, with this game you couldn't skip any of it unless you had already played it before, then you could only skip with the boss scenes to the fight. Also, when collecting bugs, it kept telling you what you got and going through 2 other screens before letting you move on, which was a bit annoying. The boss fights were bigger and better, and there is a lot of action. I felt the side missions were pretty good in this one. It was fairly simple, with the exception of the jumping off things and gliding down part. I never could figure out how to aim myself onto certain points or cliffs that you are required to do in order to finish some of the side missions. The remote just didn't want to put me where I aimed, not sure what is up with that. Overall, great game, I would recommend it, rated FUN.

Horrible

Worst Zelda Game EVER

This game is terrible! Shotty controls! terrible story lines and wth - did I mention the ridiculously awful controls? When you're not bored to death with some of the most stupid storyline quests, you're left frustrated trying to repeatedly perform that awfully stupid "skyward" sword move. Seriously, what a stupid use of the Wii motion controller. This game is overly repetitive and you spend way too much time trying to find that stupid "sweet" spot to get that absurd skyward sword move. Take a pass on this game and save yourself a lot of unneeded frustration.
