Horrible

Worst Zelda Game EVER

This game is terrible! Shotty controls! terrible story lines and wth - did I mention the ridiculously awful controls? When you're not bored to death with some of the most stupid storyline quests, you're left frustrated trying to repeatedly perform that awfully stupid "skyward" sword move. Seriously, what a stupid use of the Wii motion controller. This game is overly repetitive and you spend way too much time trying to find that stupid "sweet" spot to get that absurd skyward sword move. Take a pass on this game and save yourself a lot of unneeded frustration.

This game is fantastic, with huge world, interesting boss fights, and great graphics, making it one of the best games in the series. There were just three problems.
(Warning! some of these problems contain spoilers)

1. Too much reliance on the Wii Motion Plus

I understand what Nintendo was trying to do the WMP made things possible that weren't before, and a good amount of that was fantastic. However, if you don't have a proper place to put the sensor bar, or if the Wii's controls are bad, it really ruins the experience. I can't tell how many times I had to "Point the controller at the middle of the screen and press down."

2. Huge world, Unable to be explored

The sky is huge, with enough space in it to hold three zelda games, but there is very little of the sky used. It kind of remind me of Wind Waker.

3. Old Ship level is this games equivalent of the Water Temple in OoT

Awesome mini-boss, interesting gimmick, bad boss. Only difference, the gimmick was good.
