The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: Wii Game Review

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: Wii Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 21, 2011
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword looks to close out the Zelda 25th anniversary celebration with a bang. How does it hold up? Check out our game review and find out!

The release of a new Legend of Zelda game is always a big event in the world of video games. Almost every Zelda game in the past 25 years have been great and several have been revolutionary - Skyward Sword looks to be in the latter category.

Prelude to the Master Sword

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is set in the world of Skyloft, a floating island way up above the clouds. Link and Zelda are both students at the Knight academy and can jump off the island practically anywhere and ride on their giant birds, called Loftwings. However, early on in the story, a storm separates Link and Zelda and Link is called by Fi, the spirit of the Skyward Sword and must journey to the surface to rescue Zelda and save the world.

Motion Control: Plus or Minus?

Motion control is used for almost all the actions in the game. Skyward Sword boasts 1:1 motion tracking between the Wiimote and Link's sword so that you can swing exactly how you want the sword to move. At first, it can take some time to get used to the motion controls of the game. You may be tempted to wave the Wiimote frantically, but doing so will rarely work. Instead, you must be patient and make precise swings so that your sword will hit your enemies at the correct angle and nail their weak points.

Motion control is also used for things like flying on your Loftwings, rolling bombs, and throwing objects. Some of these controls might have been better or easier to use with traditional controls, but they are still fun to use anyways. The dungeons in Skyward Sword are masterfully designed to test your ability with all your items and are never boring. Overall, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is an amazing game that should be in everyone's collection.

Have Your Say!

(Ship name: Star-Spider) This child is a bringer of good throughout the world, wearing a spandex costume looking like a normal super-hero's, but includes a fashionable tutu and pink material. The web that she shoots out of her hand hand be melded into any shape they want with a spoken spell, depending on the situation and amount of web they have available. If she gets her hand on her mother's wand, this child can be quite a force to be reckoned with: she has much more natural talent than her mother but much, much less control, and can cause massive amounts of collateral damage if she is not kept in check. She has an optimistic look on life and a perky attitude that can sometimes be annoying, but can become dead serious in the face of danger and is perfectly tuned for the life of a vigilante, no matter how much the villains laugh when they first see her. Next ship: Bill Cipher x Dipper Pines (Bill-Dip)
