so worth finishing that final boss was so much fun i was going to give this game a 6 because of alot on annoying parts like the silent realm, bad controls, and stamina meter.... but now that im done with it i feel a little more merciful so ill stick with a score of an 8 that final boss helped alot

First off everyone that has been saying this is the best Zelda game for a console has got to check there head. The game isn’t even top 10 of the best Zelda games and here is why.

1. When Shigeru Miyamoto demoed the game at E3 and the controls didn’t work they should have scrapped the idea and went with normal controls. The Wii Motion plus is so broken the game is unplayable. The Motion Plus loses connection every 5 minutes I found myself pointing the control at the wall more than the TV.
2. This game is just a test of patients. Silent Realm that’s all I have to say. There is so much back tracking in this game it’s like they gave up making new areas they just rehash the same area over and over again. With the terrible Motion Plus controls you don’t want a longer game you are wising for an ending. I couldn’t even finish the game if i tried my head would have popped.

All and all I’m giving the game a 6 because it’s a Zelda game but they should have given the game the Old Yeller treatment and went back to the drawing board.

This game deserves a 9/10 due to the lack of exploration LOZ is known for. Towards the end it the game gets very repetitive and predictable. I, for one, was disappointed in the obvious attempts to make the game longer by stretching the missions rather than adding more side-quests or more land to explore.

This is the 1st LOZ game that gives you stages rather than a whole world that is connected. The story is typical 100% LOZ. Not the best but an addictive story to say the least. Twilight Princess was better, all around. More to explore and more story. This game exhagerates small missions. That is the only major downfall to this entry.
