Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a great game. The storyline is excellent, the dungeons and the side-quests are challenging. The game is a bit more realistic in terms of fatigue and shield damage. The soundtrack is brilliant.

The graphics looks outdated compared to Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Despite this, it is a must have if you are a collector.

However if you don't have a Wii Motion Plus and you want to buy this game, make sure you buy a Wii Motion Plus accessory or a Wii Remote Plus.

I really enjoyed the story in this version of the Zelda series. It starts you off trying to find your missing pet bird that eventually leads to a grand adventure throughout many different landscapes. The controls are well executed although there are the occasional problems with the motion controls. This is mainly a limit of the technology then a fault of the game and the challenges give you plenty of space to make mistakes and still succeed. This can make the game seem to easy at times but there are lots of variation to the challenges to keep you on your toes. There are also many side missions to keep you busy so you never feel you're moving through the game too quickly.

One thing I have to fault the game on is that you often have to travel through the same areas over and over again looking for places you couldn't get to before. As the game progresses the enemies get harder and the landscape sometimes changes, but you can spend a lot of time doing the same things over and over while looking for where you need to go next. Fortunately you have a lot of help in this area. Fi travels with you through most of the adventure, giving you advice when you want it; although there were a few places there I really could have used her help and she couldn't help me. Most notably, there is a place where you need to stab a plant with your sword to get a water drop but no where in the game does it tell you this is possible. It was only by trying everything I could think of that I finally discovered the secret.

There is a helpful magic stone near where you start the game that will give short video clips of the puzzles and challenges in the game for people who can't figure out what to do. Sometimes it will tell you how to do things you didn't even know you could do - mainly when new side quests open up. This can be helpful in making sure you don't miss anything. Since you have to go all the way back to the starting area to use the stone, you can't rely on it too much but it's there for those times when you are really stuck. I had to use it a couple of times so it's a good idea to find it as soon as you can.

If you're a Zelda fan you should definitely get this game. If you never played any of the games in the series, this is as good as any of them and well worth getting. If you hate the Zelda series, this game isn't likely to change your mind as it follows the formula pretty closely. Personally, I really love it and I'm try to complete all the side quests before I finish the game.

The latest in the Zelda series is a hit. Good storyline. Lots to explore in main story and side quests.
Gameplay with the Wii Motion Plus is pretty flawless except for the occasional need to re-centre or re-calibrate.

The music CD that comes with the game is a nice bonus.

The new controls and features adds a twist to this Zelda version. I have yet to complete the game, but what I have seen so far seems promising for any Zelda fan..

Looking to buy this as a gift for my brother... it is almost 10 dollars cheaper at Walmart.. I thought Amazon was supposed to be competitive? Too bad....
