Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword logoEvery gamer who has ever called themselves a gamer has played at least one Zelda game. Perhaps Zelda would be considered a “hipster’s game,” for they who jailbreak their Ps3 and pimp their PC with liquid-cooling for Crysis, but we have to consider that incredibly long-standing game titles stay popular for a reason (sorry, Final Fantasy, you would be an exception to this).

Is it possible for a game to better with each sequel? Yes, yes it is. Zelda: Skyward Sword has been considered by IGN to be “the greatest Zelda game ever created” –woah now.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword screenshotReleased for Wii console, you will require a Motion Plus controller. This is because the combat is mostly motion controlled: you swing Link’s sword diagonally, Link will cut diagonally. You can imagine the challenging, intuitive gameplay this becomes.
The classic formula of dungeon-crawling, monster-battling, puzzle-solving, side-questing goodness remains. This time around, instead of empty fields you whip through from dungeon to dungeon, you can expect battles all along the way, and not every dungeon will involve fighting.

Graphics-wise, this game looks like Twilight Princess and Windwaker’s love-child. The picture is realistic, but has a simplified, stylized twist to it, combining the best of both worlds and using the limits of the Wii well.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword screenshotPerhaps most tantalizingly of all, the plot in this game explains the origins of the Zelda series— for example: where the legendary Master Sword comes from, how Ganon came to be the sometimes red-headed evil king and other times giant evil beast wielder of the Triforce of Power.

The Bottom Line: You know how you’ll buy a console just so you can play one really awesome game? Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword– get it.

  1. Legend of Zelda SUCKS!
    It’s the most useless & stupid (shit) videogame created (& their ugly & needless loser-elfish boy).
    Zelda are scum, dumb morons & gangster assholes.(Their brainless fans, characters, etc are weak-minded, sore losers with low IQ)

    • As comprehensive as your argument already is, I think a further investigation might be required…(and shit).

    • Time for logic, everyone! Above, we have a well-written review by a female who plays Zelda games. Below that, we have a child left behind who does not play Zelda games. Therefore, to avoid stupidity, allow your children to play video games.

      This site believes in freedom of speech, so we will be removing this comment. However, this is not the intelligent discussion that this site aims for.
