Skyward sword is one of the biggest and best zelda games of all time. the wii motion plus sets this game apart from all of the others.if you're a true zelda fan, rent the game and see how the zelda conflict really started!
I've been reading some of the bad reviews, and a LOT say that "recentering the motion controls is annoying" First off, this DOESNT happen when you're using his sword or anything like that. There is no centering required for anything that doesnt require aiming. As for the rest, all you do is point at the middle of the screen (Which you'll be doing anyways) and press the down button. The screen will instantly fix itself and snap to the right centering. I guess people are so lazy that just hitting the down button makes them give an amazing game like this a 1. While it does get sort of repetitive, there is a lot of depth to the worlds, and exploring them will get you more items you can craft. Yes, CRAFTING in Zelda. It's actually pretty awesome. All the characters, even the shopkeeps, have their own personalities, and you get to know them as characters, not just static salesmen and women. There are also tons of extra things to do after the final boss, so there's no lack of content either. You can do "quests" (tasks) for people around town, which usually requires exploring past areas and completing a few difficult requirements.
All in all, this game makes me proud to be a Wii owner, and yes, it isn't for everybody. I know some people did generally dislike it for their own legitimate reasons, and that's perfectly fine! We can't all like the same thing. But definitely give this one a try, even if the bad reviews have you sitting on the fence.
