Alright I'm gonna tell you right now it's my new favorite game. Zelda is my favorite game series and when i saw this I was a little worried why you might ask? MOTION CONTROL. Not a big fan of it in Twilight Princess honestly but hey it's Zelda. When I started playing though this thing blew me away. The motion control is spot on, it has my favorite story line in any game, and its replay value is off the charts. It brings you back to the good old days of ocarina of time. EXCEPT WAYYYYYY BETTER. Yeah I know better then OCARINA pretty crazy stuff right there. Get ready to play one of the best games of all time fans because we got ourselves a true classic
I'm not a regular gamer. First game ever played was Twilight Princess, loved that one too. Figured I'd get Skyward Sword as the ratings and reviews were good. They were right it was a great game, I was sorry it ended. The puzzles were fun, the movement of the wii remote and the sword. The enemies....really fun battling. Get this game you won't be sorry. Be sure if you're a first time gamer to use the walkthrough on you tube by zelda dungeon, you won't miss an item, medal, or whatever you need. Have fun. I sure did.
OK so as time goes a new generation is born and with it new games. I am proud to say I was born into the nintendo era so I grew up with Zelda. The PS3 and XBOX 360 generation can easily overlook a Wii Game but they would be missing out on one of the best games out there.
This is one of the most amazing and best series out there in the world. It has made the standard and set the example and many action/rpg adventure games now a days.
Zelda games have always held a high expectation and honestly the formula was getting a little stale. Skyward Sword has breathed new life into the series again. I would go as far to say that it stands as best Zelda game ever right next to Ocarina of time.
The world in Skyward Sword is full of life and detail much pleasing to the eye. The storyline is epic and it actually makes you feel like a hero of great importance while you play the game. EX: Link is the chosen hero of destiny that once again must save the World aka "Skyloft". And Zelda plays a major role in saving world as well. Its not your normal Zelda where you have to rescue her.
The controls make the game a lot more fun. EX: combat is better and more realistic as the Wii motion plus gives you near perfect sword swings on the way you swing the Wii mote. The enemies defend against your attacks and you have to swing at an opening. It makes every battle feel like a duel. The only downside is you have to be precise on the way you swing the Wii mote but it beats the old days just mashing a button that makes Link swing randomly. So its a welcome change.
The Graphics are the best the series has ever seen and I would say the best on the Wii console. Link and the characters show emotions and you can see these through the expressions on their faces. The world lots like a painting as the graphics style was intended to look. Its a Blend of Twilight Princess and Wind Waker and it looks great.
40+ hours of game play. Much longer than most other gam
