Best Zelda Game or just Best Nintendo Game

Lets Start.

What I think- I love Zelda, Ocarina of Time was my favorite one. This is now my favorite. This game is hard to play while laying down so you will have to stand or sit which is good. The wii motion + Works Great!! You can upgrade equipment like Slingshot to ScatterShot with items. The controls are hard to get used to at first but then there fun! Instead of Epona or a boat you use a Bird Forgot the name...

Story- You (Link) live in Skyloft in well the Sky. Nobody has ever gone below the clouds because they think its Dangerous and the birds wont go through the clouds. Theres a Ceremony going on and all you gotta do is get the Bird Statue from whoever has it. But Groose steals your bird and you gotta find it. Hes pretty much the "bully". Your best Friend Zelda after you win, asks to go riding but when you do she falls. You wake up in her Dads house and you follow this "Thing" After a while the "Things" name is Fi. She pretty muck replaces Navi. She helps you on your Quest! Then your long, fun Adventure Begins

Graphics- Its a mixture of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, my opinion, I love it.

Verdict- I gave this a Ten because this is my favorite or 2nd favorite game, hard to choose but by far is the Best Zelda Game ever. The game has 50-100 hours of gameplay, thats good. You like Zelda, sword/adventure games then try this game out! If unsure rent it..i bought mine.

Wii Motion Plus Required.

I bought Skyward Sword for the gold motion+ controller

I got all heart pieces, upgraded all items, finished all side quests, got all goddess cubes (treasure charts of skyward sword)

Total play time 51 hours 32 min 22 sec right before final boss battle.

Not alot of games are better than ocarina of time for me, but this one was. Not by alot, but still better. bottom line, Rent this one if you can't afford to buy it, if you can, please buy it so they can keep making games like this i loved everything about it.

First off the combat controls are amazing and mirror like. This game was built for the Wii from the ground up. I love the fact that they used the same graphic designs as Twilight Princess. After TW I was hoping they would make Link in the next game look like he did in TW. The dungeon designs look fantastic and the puzzles are great. The fact that the enemies and bosses you fight require tactical precision is what really immerses you into the action. I have beaten every Zelda game out there except for the handheld titles and this is by far my favorite Zelda game. I was actually shocked when I saw that Gamespot gave this game a 7.5. This game is worthy of at least a score of 9.0.
