Let me start off and say that this is probably the best Legend of Zelda, ever. I LOVED Majora's Mask but this takes the throne on my list. Skyward Sword is a great game. You can put so many hours in it and never stop. The beginning of the game starts out slow, like most Zelda's, but after 2 or 3 hours this game will make you not want to put the wii remote down. The gameplay is very fluid and the use of 'Wii Motion Plus' makes it feel like you're actually in Link's leather boots, swinging the sword and rescuing Kikwees from getting eaten. The Temples are probably the most challenging and brain busting in the whole series. Which is good because, who doesn't want a good ol' challenge?! The story is excellent from what I've played of it and it really pulls you in. Graphics in this game are pretty awesome. The water color looking art style pushes the wii to the little limit it has. Weapons and items in here are new and old. Shields are REALLY a big part in this game now. They break and have weaknesses. You get different swords and can upgrade your items! If you have an extra fifty dollars laying around you should definitely pick this game up, especially of you're a Zelda fan and want to know how Link became this awesome hero he is. Have fun!
i wasnt sure what to expect out of this game because of the new control scheme. i've been a huge zelda fan all my life, and i can definitively say that this game can proudly stand out as one of the best. motion controls work better than you might think! if you are disappointed by the wii now, and are considering getting rid of it, then play this game before you do. it'll change your mind about the wii!
