The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review

 

The Wii Remote really is a remarkably versatile little controller. At its best, it offers a degree of precision not found with traditional controllers, and completely transforms games in the process. But until now, it's never quite been able to make...

Apart from minor hiccups, Skyward Sword is a remarkably well-designed adventure with some superb boss encounters, the best of which seamlessly integrate the motion controls that lay at the heart of the experience. Its main sins are that it's a bit of a...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review

 

Is Link's latest Wii-based adventure a return to form or just more of the same?

Zelda’s getting a bit flabby with age, but Skyward Sword remains a fitting tribute to the legendary series and outgoing Wii console

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

 

25 years ago in the land of Hyrule, a stout, green-clad adventurer wandered into a dark cave where he found an old man alone between two torches. “It's dangerous to go alone,” the old man said, as he offered the boy a sword and sent him out into the...

We have waited a long time for a true, Wii Zelda game. Skyward Sword clearly represents the pinnacle of the Wii’s capabilities both graphically and in terms of motion controls. Unfortunately neither works perfectly. The improved mechanics as well as...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Wii Review

 

Being introduced to the world 25 years ago, The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's most enduring of franchises, and in that period the basic formula has largely stayed the same, with the occasional flirt with invention with the likes of Majora's...

Skyward Sword, whilst not the most intricate of the series, is as carefully and cleverly designed as always, but those that have long been seeking a dramatic reconstruction of Zelda will once again come away disappointed, though will perhaps be...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

 

Game of the year AND controller shame of the year.

Classic Zelda formula with welcome tweaks and a smarter interface, massive world to explore, level design is masterful, puzzle-solving action is near-perfect

Controls are intermittently infuriating

It's a good time to be a gamer. This Christmas season has been host to some of the best in gaming history and we're all spoilt for choice. So, which should we choose to keep us and our loved ones busy over the festive season? To date, almost 90 million...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

 

Zelda is something that I've always loved but also something that I've never actively looked forward to. I did get quite a bit excited for Skyward Sword earlier this month, mainly because of how much I didn't know about the game and then how close it...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Nintendo Wii Review

 

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the latest instalment in Nintendo's 25-year old franchise. It is to be the last major first-party game to be made for the Wii before the company focuses on their upcoming console, the Wii U. With these facts in...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review [Wii]

 

What better way to wave goodbye to the Nintendo console that changed everything with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword? It couldn't have been pitched any better, really. Finally, we have a game which has answered our pleas and taken full advantage of...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

 

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword’s strength lies squarely in the wide array of items and the meticulously crafted dungeons that exploit all of these variables in challenging and creative ways. If you can push through the gruelling introductory...

Excellent dungeon and item puzzle design; Retains everything we love about Zelda; A lengthy and challenging adventure; Best execution of motion-controls in a core-targeted Wii game; More happy, catchy, memorable tunes

Wooden characters and tedious, unskippable text-box dialogue.; Tech hits the wall as Wii shows its age; Poor camera control detracts more than motion controls add.; Pacing hurt by repetitive filler and fetch quests
