The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

PlayDevil
13 January 2012
  • Summary: Zelda is always magical, but Nintendo are trapped in the structure of the franchise and trying to make the game accessible to a broad audience despite ever more complex systems. But Skyward Sword has started to try and introduce some change as well as make better use of the Wii than any game before it, both in terms of control and look.

  • Excerpt: Reader, there is a 73.81010101% repeating chance that you started reading a review of Nintendo’s latest iteration of The Legend of Zelda virtual instances game series, subtitled Skyward Sword . My analysis indicates that this game unfolds as follows: Scenario 32 – A child has gone missing in a village in the sky and the citizens assume she has not fallen off. Proven to be a resourceful hero, you offer your aid. You find her and clean a woman’s dusty house with bellows.
  • Pros: Classic dungeon puzzles return, Wii MotionPlus introduces minigame mechanics, Sprinting
  • Cons: Illusion of narrative agency, Repetitive locations

  • Excerpt: When the Wii was first announced, most of us immediately fell in love with the concept. Motion controls were something new that we hadn't had much experience with, and with innovative Nintendo at the helm, there was a lot of potential. Unfortunately, as time passed, the system's software lineup began stressing the casual more and more. As third parties abandoned it and high definition rose to the mainstream, the Wii's relevance to gamers quickly disappeared.

  • Summary: Skyward Sword joins Super Mario 64 as a game that almost single-handedly justifies Nintendo's approach to hardware development, and stands as one of the best titles in the storied franchise. Still, it can't get away from a few minor faults that stop it just short of perfection.
  • Pros: Dungeon and puzzle designs are among the series' best, Impressive MotionPlus controls and swordplay, Art direction compensates well for lack of graphical horsepower, Fully orchestrated score lives up to Zelda's lofty standards
  • Cons: The world structure is both linear and sparse, Design inconsistencies and the occasional bit of recycled content hurt the overall experience

  • Conclusion: Skyward Sword may be formulaic, but it’s a formula that has been honed over a quarter of a century. Whether a Zelda completest or a cack-handed novice, there is something for everyone, and the accurate Wii controls do genuinely add to the experience.
  • Pros: Huge, compelling, pioneering controls
  • Cons: A lot of admin, formulaic, exhausting

  • Conclusion: Now at this point, you’re likely thinking that after a dozen or so paragraphs of relentless criticism that I absolutely loathed this game, but that’s honestly not the case. The sour points that I’ve just described do stop this from being the perfect game that it could have been, but damned if the nature of Zelda doesn’t still shine bright through this tarnished exterior.
