Pros Less buttons! Great story! Full of strategy! Spot on callibration with Wii Motion Plus
Cons Must buy Wii motion plus remote. Slow moving at start of game.
Recommended it? Yes

I have played almost every Zelda game ever made. Zelda has to be my favorite video game series, so when I heard about this game coming out, I was excited, but I also had very high expectations.
First off, a bit of a turn off is that you need Wii motion plus, and seeing as the game is already... Read full review »

Pros Its a new game with a new storyline. Good storyline too.
Cons Energy meter doesn't allow you to run for so long. Graphics are not as good.
Recommended it? No

This is a pretty good game, but where as the previous Zelda game was a little more grown-up or dark, this one, Skyward Sword is very childlike. There is one part in the game that is pretty hard, but not impossible. In addition to that, There is a collection book that you can store your collections... Read full review »

Pros Fun game, lots to do, feels good
Cons Lower qualitiy graphics
Recommended it? Yes

This Zelda game brings a whole new idea into the Zelda Franchise... FULL control of the sword. This feature allows for enemies to have diverse defensive abilites and it is used for things you never thought you would see in a Zelda game, but I don't want to spoil anything.

Pros Great Story, items don't become useless, upgrading system, bazaar, Graphics.
Cons Controls suck, Fi sucks, Flying boring, Day Night System pointless.
Recommended it? Yes

The most recent Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Wii released in 2011, is the first game that is not a sports game that takes full advantage of the motion controls being the first Zelda to not have traditional controls.

The story to this game goes like... Read full review »

Five years ago, Nintendo stunned the world with the release of the Wii, an innovative console that popularized motion control gaming. Yet, in spite of the Wii's great success, Nintendo's console has had a difficult time appealing to so called "hardcore gamers." To them, the Wii for the most part... Read full review »

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword


Zelda Skyward Sword starts you off in a Knight school which you are part of. You begin the game meeting all the people then learning the basics on how to jump, dash, etc. Then you go find your lost bird (Loftwing) that a parentally Groose... Read full review »

Pros Puzzles are clever as ever, controls are downright fun, upgrading system
Cons Day/night doesn't work the same, "You got the thing" screen for stuff...
Recommended it? Yes

The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword has only been in release just over a month, but I feel that it very well may be one of my top three Zelda games now, if not top two. Only the black sheep Majora's Mask puts up any real competition for a spot in my daydreaming queue anymore.

It's not too... Read full review »


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: More Like Skyward Bored

Pros A few inventive dungeons and cool tools.
Cons The controls, the constant enemy and area recycling.
Recommended it? Yes

It seems almost fitting that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will serve as arguably the last major first party release for the Nintendo Wii. After all, when the console launched back in 2006, Link and the titular princess were the first “must have” title on the new machine. Of... Read full review »

Pros Very epic, amazing music, great storyline
Cons Low character development, fetch-quests, and backtracking
Recommended it? Yes

We're nearing the end of the Wii's lifecycle, and those who are hardcore fans were starting to worry that all focus would be towards the upcoming system, the Wii U.  Surprisingly, Skyward Sword is not only one of the greatest games on Wii, it is also becoming the biggest reason to even get a...

Stop Me if You've Heard This One...

Pros It's a great Zelda game, with some new (however minor) innovations to perk it up.
Cons There's more old than new.  Some ancient design flaws continue to resurface.
Recommended it? Yes

It is hard to think of any series in video gaming more respected than Legend of Zelda.  Many gamers, including this one, have grown up with Link's various adventures, and have seen the series mature from its primitive (but impressive) roots to the elaborate network of meticulously crafted...

This Holiday season has been huge for Nintendo.  Super Mario Land 3D and Mario Kart 7 came out on the Nintendo 3DS with a month in between, and the next installment in the Zelda series, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was released for the Wii on November 20, 2011.  The release of Skyward...
