Love/ Hate

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.

Great game its up there with the best zelda games probably not as good as some of the classics like ocarina or majoras mask but defiantly up there deserves no less then a 9 and i gave it a 10 def rent / buy it.
