The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Video Review
If The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is something of a swan song for the best-selling console of the generation, the Nintendo Wii, then it's a pretty good way to go out. Find out why as Morgan Webb and Adam Sessler deliver our review.

    I can definitely tell they're paid off when doing these reviews. The motion controls are comparable to playing tug of war using a T-Bone steak and your opponent is a pitbull. The motion controls often get confused, and are not very fast. Normally I wouldn't care, but do to how fast paced this game is in combat it makes me a tad irritated whenever I get in a fight with things that can block.

    I also laughed when they said that flying the bird was smooth. If you call a fat guy riding a unicycle smooth then I guess it is smooth to you. It's still Zelda, and the story is decent, but in all honesty for a Zelda game I'm a bit disappointed with this one. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's good.

    The things I liked were the crafting system, and shield breaking since it added in a level of difficulty, though I wish shields weren't made out of cardboard in this Hyrule. The crafting system can be slow, but it adds in a level of fun in my opinion, and it's not like it's needed to continue in the game, it's just helpful.

    Finally the companion in this game might not be as annoying as Navi, but at least Navi had more personality and immersion into the game then an emotionless robot. I miss Minda sooooo badly in this game. XD

    Overall I would probably give this game a 3/5 which is fairly low for a Zelda game. Mind you these are just constructive criticisms. I still enjoyed the game, but it ranks down with Majora's Mask in the overall.

    I give it a 10, although the talking seems to take forever. When it takes an hour from the start of the game just to get to the part where you dawn the outfit is kind of crazy. The dowsing thing is really messed up to.

    I've bought a lot of Zelda games, but this one seems like I've done it and seen it before. Have I used a one-4-one sword in Zelda before? No. But it just looks old and dated and is not gaining my interest. Maybe this is fr the next generation who has not played all the other Zelda games, but fr some of us it looks lke the same old, same old.

    It was playable I guess..but beyond that it was average for me. A 3 seems like a fair grade to me. Though anyone who says this game is better than Skyrim needs some serious help.
