Lets Start.

What I think- I love Zelda, Ocarina of Time was my favorite one. This is now my favorite. This game is hard to play while laying down so you will have to stand or sit which is good. The wii motion + Works Great!! You can upgrade equipment like Slingshot to ScatterShot with items. The controls are hard to get used to at first but then there fun! Instead of Epona or a boat you use a Bird Forgot the name...

Story- You (Link) live in Skyloft in well the Sky. Nobody has ever gone below the clouds because they think its Dangerous and the birds wont go through the clouds. Theres a Ceremony going on and all you gotta do is get the Bird Statue from whoever has it. But Groose steals your bird and you gotta find it. Hes pretty much the "bully". Your best Friend Zelda after you win, asks to go riding but when you do she falls. You wake up in her Dads house and you follow this "Thing" After a while the "Things" name is Fi. She pretty muck replaces Navi. She helps you on your Quest! Then your long, fun Adventure Begins

Graphics- Its a mixture of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, my opinion, I love it.

Verdict- I gave this a Ten because this is my favorite or 2nd favorite game, hard to choose but by far is the Best Zelda Game ever. The game has 50-100 hours of gameplay, thats good. You like Zelda, sword/adventure games then try this game out! If unsure rent it..i bought mine.

Wii Motion Plus Required.

New Zelda Game.

I've had this game for about two weeks now since it got leaked online so i've played a great deal. I've experienced alot of the game but not all so keep that in mind as i write this review.

This is a zelda game for those who don't know it has a ton of fans and they expect something new every game.This however makes the whole zelda universe turn upside down in a good way for some and bad way for others.

The graphics are not breath taking yet there not bad and since it's not HD and many are used to playing HD games once you come down to this level you won't find it as crisp but it is as detailed the map of this game is not big at all which is why every location has many items and puzzles.
The Back tracking in this game is it's biggest problem there are like three dungeons on the map that open to huge amounts of spaces but it gets very annoying being in skyloft in the sky where u start from and only being able to buy things like potions and shields from there. So your shield breaks you go back, you need to upgrade you go back, you lose your life and have no more potions you go back.
Which reminds me the controls in this game are perfect and i mean DEAD ON so if you mess up and die it's your fault, but it takes so long to get used to such perfect controls the game seems very hard at the start however once you conquer the controls you'll love them and couldn't be happier. Now as i was playing this game only one thing came to my mind - "This is it the next generation Zelda." I believe those words as this feels nothing like any zelda i have played before it and i believe that's the point but this game feels so different many many fans will be very upset and Hate this game.

Overall i think this game gets a 9 out of 10 not the best so far but the perfect controls really make it fun. Of course that's if u can over look the tedious backtracking for items and locations.
Try it out
Some will Hate it
Some will Love it
This Is NEW
This Is Not The Traditional Ze

so the graphics are 100 times worse than twighligt princeses, the gameply sucks, and the controlls are just confusing. the story mode is fun and catches the player in but thats about it
