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: It's not the be-all, end-all Zelda game. It ends up being pretty fun early on, then you kind of just keep repeating a lot of the same areas over and over again with varying differences and it ends up being...meh. That's the best I can come up with; much of the game is strange, some of it is truly grandiose and exciting, but ultimately...MEH. Just not much more than that it seems. I guess it came with a music CD, I don't even remember.
Skyward Sword: Nintendo still babying its hardcore fan base.

Summary: Skyward Sword is not a bad game, but its not a great game either. Its a good game but i was very disappointed with what it had to offer. If this was a standalone game, not holding the weight of the Zelda's franchise on its back, the critics might have been harsher in their reviews. IMO 1) I never really felt challenged, even for the hero mode (which IMO should have been a starting option for those looking for more of a challenge). What makes this alot worse is Fi.
Summary: Here are my thoughts after playing the game for a while. I'll update it once I beat the whole game. STORY/AMBIENCE It's nice that Nintendo really tried to infuse Skyward Sword with a story. It actually works for the most part. The scenes between Zelda and Link are really touching. And for once Gannondorf isn't the main villain! That said, while the story itself is fine, it just doesn't have the same epic feel Twilight Princess did. First, Skyloft feels a bit silly.
An Otherwise Great Game Bombarded with Frustrating Motion Controls

Summary: Just like many other reviewers state the fact that they have been long time Zelda fans, I have also been a long time fan of the Zelda franchise for over 11 years, starting with the critically acclaimed Ocarina of Time title and have played nearly every Zelda game in the series from the original NES Zelda to Twilight Princess, and while I do like this game, I found the motion controls to be frustrating to say the least.
Summary: Something about this game just didn't sit right with me. Maybe the art style, or the really tweaky and annoying Wii Motion+ controls. Oh ya, and it MADE me buy a new $40 controller to play this game. Quite annoying for a single game investment adding up to $90.
Summary: My grandsons told me they needed to purchase a $10 piece for their WII in order to use the game I pourchased for them. This was disappointing as they said the only way they found this out was to get on line and ask questions. They were then able to figure out why they could not get the game to work.
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 got my first Zelda game in the 90's "Ocarina of Time" this was my first video game and did not understand why everbody called it revolutionay in the gaming world. Each game has amazed many people including myself. The series as a hole is astonishing. Although most games have the same premisis they each take very seperate paths that are unique. I got the special combo pack of this game that included the golden numchuck, it is very cool and well detailed by the wat.
