The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: If the Wii had launched with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword , everything would have been different. Instead, the console launched with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess , a game that sent all the wrong messages to third parties on how to create a successful Wii game. Twilight Princess sometimes utilized the Wii Remote in cool ways (like pointer aiming) but also tacked on motion control in unnecessary ways (like sword swinging), giving the illusion of added...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review

GamesRadar
28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: These days, it's generally inadvisable to purchase a game sight unseen without checking reviews first, but if there's any series that merits complete trust based on its track record, it's Zelda. So it's no surprise that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a must-play not only for all Zelda fans, but all Wii owners in general. In nearly every way, it upholds the high standard of the series and is a worthy entry to mark Zelda's 25th anniversary.
  • Pros: Great swordplay and environmental puzzles, Seeing the beginning of the timeline, Bonus soundtrack!
  • Cons: Sometimes fiddly motion controls, Ghirahim, because he's evil, Waiting for a truly HD Zelda

  • Conclusion: Link, Zelda, and the lands they inhabit have all grown and changed for over five generations of video game consoles, and the leaps and bounds taken with almost every game are impressive. With a story line that offers many hours of engaging gameplay, Skyward Sword can be enjoyed both by narrative-driven gamers and completionists that typically go for larger games such as Skyrim .
  • Pros: Beautiful art and sound design offer a sensually rich experience, Nintendo at last delivers solid motion controls , with superb responsiveness and fluid combat
  • Cons: Some control gimmicks were distracting and made completing certain tasks difficult, Stylistic choices led to an experience that didn’t feel as epic as we would have liked

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Wii Review

Console Obsession
31 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Being introduced to the world 25 years ago, The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most enduring of franchises, and in that period the basic formula has largely stayed the same, with the occasional flirt with invention with the likes of Majora’s Mask. That it has almost always remained as the true definition of a classic game is testament to the wonderful fundamentals that the legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto and his team first laid out all those years ago.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game review

Boys' Life magazine
26 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Five loooooonng years. It’s been quite a wait for a new The Legend of Zelda for the Wii. But with Skyward Sword, that lengthy wait is finally over. Nintendo has brought you another thrilling serving of the silent hero Link’s mysterious epic adventures. This time, he travels between two worlds to rescue the lovely Zelda. (The reason it’s called Skyward Sword probably has something to do with the controls.
  • Pros: It’s a brand-new Zelda; inventive ways to play; riding Loftwing.
  • Cons: Jaggies on graphics show the Wii’s age; tips can be confusing; controls take getting used to.

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (Wii) Review

25 December 2011
  • Excerpt: When one thinks of the most influential franchises in gaming’s history, The Legend of Zelda has to be near the top. The Zelda series has consistently set new standards in depth, complexity, scope, control, visuals, and story telling. However, the industry is a far different place than it was when we entered our first dungeon in the NES classic, when Ocarina Time blew our collective minds, or even when Link turned into a wolf in Twilight Princess.
