Excellent

Zelda would be perfect, Wii holds it back.

This game was amazing and gave me a chance to dust off the ol' Wii again. The game itself was very clever, everything was very well balanced. It was never to hard or to easy which keeps it fun but not frustrating. My only gripe is sometimes the controls don't swing the way you want which can leave you a few hearts short of what you should be, but that's the controller not the game. The graphics were about as good as they could be on the Wii. By far the best game you can get on the system.

I absolutely loved this game. But even more than the game, I loved the sword fighting. It's really, really awesome. Just saying that doesn't even do it justice. I only gave it -1 star because there's simply not enough of it: I want more, more more.

This is the Wii, realized.

PS. trying not to spoil much, but fighting the last boss try to fight lightning with lightning. You'll spoil your pants.

Wow. This game is EPIC. The motion controls are perfect, and the awesome soundtrack of this series is only boosted by Nintendo's decision to orchestrate the score. Even flying around the sky and playing minigames is fun. Enemy design is mostly satisfying, and their rewards seem perfect. Overall, I give this game a 10 out of 10
