Mildly Entertaining, but more often frustrating

I had a decent amount of fun in this game. It definitely was worth a rent. But I didn't finish it and don't plan to because it had one too many frustrating parts. The controls were the worst. The incoherent story was next in line and the boring gameplay was the worst culprit. I could deal with terribly wonky controls if what I was DOING was fun, but overall it wasn't. And I had no real motivation to do what I was trying so very hard to do. In conclusion, it was a very disappointing experience and I hope Nintendo can get it together for the next one

A True Zelda Fan Very Disappointed

First off everyone that has been saying this is the best Zelda game for a console has got to check there head. The game isn’t even top 10 of the best Zelda games and here is why.

1. When Shigeru Miyamoto demoed the game at E3 and the controls didn’t work they should have scrapped the idea and went with normal controls. The Wii Motion plus is so broken the game is unplayable. The Motion Plus loses connection every 5 minutes I found myself pointing the control at the wall more than the TV.
2. This game is just a test of patients. Silent Realm that’s all I have to say. There is so much back tracking in this game it’s like they gave up making new areas they just rehash the same area over and over again. With the terrible Motion Plus controls you don’t want a longer game you are wising for an ending. I couldn’t even finish the game if i tried my head would have popped.

All and all I’m giving the game a 6 because it’s a Zelda game but they should have given the game the Old Yeller treatment and went back to the drawing board.

This game proves what a waste of time motion controlled gaming is. Good lord are the controls bad.....I thought nothing could be worse then Twlight Princess but o man this game is almost unplayable. I already hate motion controls for ruining some of the best games ever made such as Zelda and Mario. But man they really did a number on this one. Be sides Final Fantasy Zelda was one of my favorite games of all time and what they have put out in these last two titles is a disgrace to Zelda and their fans. Get back to the basics of real games with one remote so motion and pin point accuracy...nomore of this motion bs that ruins every game it touches..
