Summary: Had this game. Had to pawn it off to pay some bills. The copy I got is also from UAE/Saudi Arabia/Malaysia region, like another reviewer before me. That's not what's advertised on the store page. Concerned, I fired it up on the Wii U and it seemed to run fine. It even recognized and properly loaded my old save file. I'm giving it 3 stars because it's not the game as it's advertised (a.k.a. not an NA region release), but it seems like it will play on Wii U.
Summary: Well some people liked this better than twilight princess. I am not one of those people. Its not open world at all. Its feels very confined and less detailed than the last game... Not as lively or fun for me, less story... etc ... It seems like any game made for some special controller specifically loses quality. Waste of money and time for me...
Summary: This game was OKAY but dont believe people when they say its better than Ocarina Of Time. People are just excited that it was just released and all of the 12 and 13 year olds who never played ocarina of time on release date back 98 are dumb. If more people knew about that vote going on guaranteed ocarina of time would have destroyed ss.
Summary: I've played every console Zelda game from the NES and Gameboy up to this one. I've even finished most of them! But this one I almost didn't. This is probably one of, if not my absolute, least favorite Zelda games. It's all the more disappointing, given how I expected this Wii outing to be spectacular. It takes waaay too long to get going. Nintendo hasn't crammed this much boring dialog into a game since Super Paper Mario. And the story is kind of lame.
Good game. but a Terrible zelda game. Disappointing !!

Summary: Ok so ill start by saying that this might be one of the worst zelda games i have played !!! Yes it is a 3 stars because it's a zelda game so it's a good game but if it was compared to other zelda games this would get a 1 star... Lets say that i'm a huge fan of the series, the type that ONLY buys a Nintendo to play this game, i grew up playing the first one and have played and passed them all.
Summary: **Disclaimer: For some Zelda fans patrolling Amazon reviews in order to defend the franchise's name from negative experiences from other players, this review may be another outlet for your negative feedback** I have played all the major console releases of Zelda, starting with Ocarina of Time.
Summary: Skyward Sword is my least favorite in the Zelda franchise for one reason & one reason only: clunky controls. I give Nintendo credit for upping their game with the Wii Motion +, but the controls aren't very responsive & over all it just feels gimmicky. For a game that is known for being lengthy, swinging the wii-mote around gets tiresome after about 10 minutes. I sunk about 60 hours into this game, which is fair for first time play-through of a Zelda console game.
of course it's great game, if you can appreciate it through all the padding

Summary: I thoroughly enjoy this game. The puzzles are just challenging enough to be rewarding, but not so much as to disrupt the fun factor. The characters are beautiful and the environments are even more beautiful. The whole game looks like an impressionist painting, albeit one painted by pretty near-sighted artist.
Summary: I'm a really old school Zelda fan, having had played the originals... Link to the Past still being one of my favorites. These later releases of Zelda just don't seem to have that same spark to me. I believe it started with Wind Waker... I wasn't one of the people who were upset with the graphics, I thought they looked neat. But rather, the feel of the game just didn't interest me.
