This is a masterpiece and that's that. Ocarina of Time has finally found a worthwhile successor. This is 40 hrs of pure bliss and perfect gameplay. If you're looking for amazing graphics, then buy an xbox or ps3 game, if you want amazing gameplay and total immersion in a game, buy this. BUY THIS!!!!!!

  Zelda celebrates it's 25th anniversary in great style!

I first fell in love with the Zelda games with the game ZELDA 2 The Adventure of Link which was on Nintendos very first console the NES. Then I had Zelda - A Link to the Past which was one of the best games on the SNES and on the N64 the epic Zelda saga peaked with Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time back in the year 1998 and only now with Skyward Sword have Nintendo finely been able to top that all time classic game.
The MotionPlus controls are amazing especially when your flying your big red Loftwing bird and it's a real shame that there are not more Wii games that support MotionPlus because millions of people have the games Wii Sports Resort and Wii Play Motion that come with the MotionPlus Accessory or the newer Wii Remotes that have MotionPlus built into them already. The story to Skyward Sword is told wonderfully in a most beautiful breathtaking world. In fact I would say that Skyward Sword is the best looking Wii game yet and the little puzzles are all very well thought out in which the story unfolds at a good pace with plenty of action.

The cd that comes with this game is performed by a brilliant powerful orchestra which gives the Zelda tunes a even bigger impact are as follows:

1. The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Medley
2. Kakariko Village - Twilight Princess Theme
3. The Wind Waker Symphonic Movement
4. Gerudo Villey
5. Great Fairy's Fountain Theme
6. Twilight Princess Symphonic Movement
7. The Legend of Zelda Main Theme Medley
8. Ballad of the Goddess from Skyward Sword

I would like to tell you more about this truly amazing game but I don't want to ruin your experience of the best game on the Wii of all time!

  Less than impressive

I initially was disappointed with this game - it looks & sounds very retro. I also find the controls are THE most frustrating game controls ever. The game itself is incredibly simple - but simple acts like trying to 'play' your harp (moving your hand left and right) are made frustratingly hit and miss affairs because of the abysmally unresponsive Wii controller. And it's the same for other parts of the game too - parts where you have to manipulate a door key using the controller - if it was a normal controller it would take you 5 seconds - it's a 10 minute job using the Wii controller!! I love the Zelda games but the Wii controller totally kills this game. Graphics and sound are ok, but if you're expecting a game that looks like Twilight Princess then think again - this game looks more or less like Ocarina of Time - not a bad thing, but bearing in mind that game was released over 10 years ago on the N64...! However, if you're prepared to put up with the abysmal controls, the poor graphics and sound then you'll find it's an enjoyable game - I don't think it's worthy of the rave reviews it's being receiving, but it's worth the purchase simply because it gives you great value for money - most other games can be finished over a couple of days - I've been grinding on this game for about a week now and I'm still only about 70% completed. A great game crippled by being on the Wii platform.

This game is a fantastic piece of game craft.

Slow to begin with, and the controls can be both the greatest and most annoying thing about the title.

But overall the game is a revelation. Some of the most finely crafted dungeons ever put together. The first couple are relatively basic, but after that Nintendo start showing its flair for the inventive. And there's a few clever new weapons and devices available for Link to use, which I shall not spoil here.

Perhaps the game's greatest triumph is its visuals. It backs away from the darker look of Ocarina and, more so, Twilight, and looks like one huge water colour painting. It's almost as if Twilight Princess and Wind Waker had a baby.

But visually the game looks timeless. And despite lacking the HD sheen of its Xbox and PS3 rivals, the product stands up next to them thanks to the unique look.

Music is fully orchestrated, although unusually the new tracks aren't quite up to Kojima-sans standards. The classic Zelda music played by an orchestra is a delight however. And there are a few catchy tracks to look out for.

In terms of specifics, the game features a Sky overworld, which Link can fly around, help inhabitants, find treasure, and generally mess about. While the world below the sky (AKA, Hyrule) is where the action takes place.

In this game Zelda doesn't go AWOL for the whole title, like she does in previous titles. Nor does she annoying hover around you like Spirit Tracks. She appears just enough for you to actually care about the princess. Which isn't something a Zelda game has ever really pulled off before.

Clocking in at around 30-40 hours. There's plenty to enjoy. And you will be devastated when it is finished. Just like every other classic Zelda game.

It's a must purchase.

Wasn't sure about this for the first couple of hours but as with most Zelda games it soon picks up. Only after completing a couple of dungeons did I realise how well thought out the new items are, the beetle especially is pretty awesome. The game play is similar to Twilight Princess except the roll which you would use by pressing A on the Wiimote. Now you have to shake the nun chuck but if you'd played Twilight Princess to death as I did you may be so stuck in your ways that you find learning how to do the exact same thing a completely new way is hard to learn.

The dungeons seem to have fewer rooms but the elaborate puzzles are no disappointment at all and as expected take a lot of thinking about.

I'm bound to review positively as a huge Zelda fan but the game really is very good I only wish it had the darkness of TP

All in all, great game, lovin' it!!
