This game feels like it was made 10 years ago. Presentation and control of games have evolved so much in the last decade and shipping a "AAA" title that functions as poorly and is this badly paced and presented is just unforgivable.
You'll be constantly fighting the controls and camera to get it to do the simplest things. The motionplus is shoddy at best during combat and I lost track of how many times I fell off cliffs trying get Link to jump towards a stationary vine.
Every once in a while something cool will happen or there will be an actually enjoyable fight or puzzle but the ratio seemed to be roughly 2 hours of play for 15 minutes of real entertainment.
I couldn't even finish the game. I just don't have the patience to slog through all the garbage to get to the good parts. I just cant believe Nintendo still hasn't figured out how to make a solid AAA title that actually utilizes their motion controls well.

Okay for all of you who think this is "The best Zelda Game Of all time" need a reality check. here are my reasons this game is in no way superior to other Zelda games.
1. Repetition - this is a huge point. there are only 3 regions in the game. and you repeatedly go back to these regions to accomplish the same quests over and over again. I'm not even joking when I say 6 of the boss fights are of the same 2 people. And you fight the most poorly designed and boring boss...3 times... A lot of ideas in this game are repeated throughout the story which made me feel like I new what to expect in the next room.
2. Lack of exploration - Like I said before. there are only 3 regions in this game. A forest area, a volcano area, and a desert area. And they have the same zelda species but instead of Zoras they have...wait for it...Robots... Really nintendo? And the regions arent connected so to get to the region you just drop right into them via the sky and your hometown/hub world of Skyloft. And at anytime in the region, literally every 5 steps theres a bird statue that will take you back into the sky so you can go home and take a nap. Really takes the "epic adventure" out of it. I never had that feeling in MM or OoT.
3. Motion controls shoved down throat - Now I know nintendo worked hard on the controls but really. Every single enemy from start to final boss requires some form of Wii motion show off. This is a zelda game not Wii sports. It seems nintendo took more thought into the controls then the actual game itself. making it a terrible theatrical experience.
The Final boss Was never explained well enough hes just kinda...there.... And the Villian Girihim ends up in the end to accomplish 0% and proves to be the most pointless villian in zelda history. A lot of people say this game was made to complete the timeline but was it really needed? Did they really have to take 5 years on this game? MM took one and Is probably the best. All in all its not terrible, its not gr
