9,7. Fantastic story, nice graphic, perfect use of motion control. A little bit too long in the last part.

AstroMaSSi rules

An 8.




I would give it an 8. A solid experience. Only Wii game I bought last year.

  The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is the best Zelda title ever made.

As a game, I would give it a 9/10. It did so much right. SO MUCH RiGHT.

Pros: I can't even begin to name them all. Here are a few-
-Absorbing story and characterization
-Incredible gameplay (despite a few motion control spazz outs--not an issue, btw)
-Great music
-Heart warming and moving

-very easy
-bosses didn't have the impact of Twilight Princess
-missing some Zelda staples like boomerangs and lighting torch puzzles
-not enough locations
-too much padding to make the game longer

Like I said, as a game, I'd give it a 9/10. But, on a simply emotional level, I gotta give it a 10/10. This game touched me in a way that I haven't been touched since Metal Gear Solid 3. When those final credits started rolling, I was smiling from ear to ear--but a couple of tears rolled down my cheek. After a slow start, this game became something truly special. The gamer in me and the critic in me have reached a compromise. Now, they are going to have sex with each other. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with my final score.

Could you go into a little more detail please?

I don't see why you'd need someone to expand upon the core gameplay element. If the motion controls aren't for you, then you simply wont like Skyward Sword.

I assume you'll also ask the following to go into more detail?



On another note...

I enjoyed what I played, never finished it... Should really get back to it at some point. Up to where I got I'd give it an 8, might come find this thread when I get back to it...

Cool, you didnt' find my post questionable


+ More challenging combat than in the previous two console Zeldas.
+ Also better boss fights for the most part.
+ Good dungeon design.

- A lot of boring filler to make the game longer.
- Despite this, the game still isn't particularly long.
- The final third of the game does its best to avoid combat.
- Phai (Fi) is obnoxious.
- Cannot skip cutscenes on a new file. Step back for the series.
- Cannot really speed up screentext. Step back for the series.
- Cannot upgrade the sword. Ridiculous.
- Upgrade system requires collecting random items dropped by monsters. This isn't Monster Hunter.
- Reward for the mother of all sidequests is once again a disappointment.
- Khuutra thinks that it's a fantastic game.
- I don't like Khuutra anymore.
- The sky is almost empty. A few small islands and some floating rocks.
- Upgrading the bow seems to be absolutely worthless. The regular bow kills enemy archers with one hit (even if you hit their knee), so what's the point in upgrading?

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nah, your post actually had reasons in it despite the high score.

I wonder who said twas a bad game. It wasn't that bad! XD

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.
