I am still to finish it but I am into my 30th hours of game play.

Everything is amazing and so far my only complain is with regards to the sky. Cool th first few times...

rather empty and useless... too long fly from island to island with no big benefits or interesting quest to do.

6.5/10 - The trailers were all right but that's about it. I couldn't even play the game for one minute!

If you really played the game for only one minute, your score is worthless.

Don't worry, I didn't play it at all . I don't have a Wii, hence the "couldn't even play the game" part

I was hoping it'd be more obvious but I guess I need to practice my tRol-ling

You know games have gone way too cinematic when people can give 6½ points just for trailers

8/10

+ Motion controls integrated nicely with gameplay/puzzles
+ Good story
+ Lengthy campaign
+ Upgrading parts in Zelda...finally

- Too many text prompts....no seriously, way too many. This is aside from story text.
- Game takes too long to really get good
- Cheap re-using of environments to extend gameplay
- Graphics look worse than a Wii game would normally look on a 42" LCD.



This is the first Zelda I've bought and played through. Overall a good game but to me, it just can't be the masterpiece people claim it is.

+ Great combat system
+ Great dungeon design
+ Lots of intelligent, well-designed puzzles
+ Some beautiful moments
+ Some great bosses
- Weakest first 2 hours EVER this gen.
- The game feels stretched out, recycling bosses and dungeons.
- The story is very childish yet it wants to be epic. It just doesn't fit to me. Couldn't care less about it and its characters.
- VERY ANNOYING T-Pain's sister Fi, ridiculous Emo-F** Ghirahim (really, WTF???)
- Some very aged mechanics
- Art-style too sesam street like to me. No real dark contrasts. With Mario, DK, LBP, Rayman I have no problems with it, but then again, this game SHOULD be epic right?


SCORE: 7.0 out of 10



Game of the year 2017 so far:

5. Resident Evil VII
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
3. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
1. Super Mario Odyssey

10/10

Pros
+ Better story than others Zeldas, now you really want to save her
+ Motion controls that work as i wanted for Twilight Princess
+ Blended World/Dungeon
+ Upgrade System
+ Hero Mode
+ Artstyle, at first time i wasn't sold on it, but it's impressive
+ New Villain
+ It story linked to most of the old games

Con
- Fi talks way too much

I believe the pros way overwhelm the con.
It's okay this long or do i have to explain longer?

9 from me...

I liked it a lot but still prefer OCARINA which is a 10, so naturally I'd give SS a lower score.
(having said that it was definitely my fave zelda since ocarina!)



7/10

The motion controls were not that great. I was reading a review on Gamespot.com and they ranked it a 7.5. I am a huge Zelda fan, and really liked Twilight Princess, aside from the obvious tacked on motion controls. I was very happy to hear from most reviews that the motion controls were excellent in Skyward Sword. They were wrong. It constantly kept misreading my movements, even when I was over-emphasizing them. The story was decent, the lack of spoken dialogue is ridiculous, and the fact that the only thing that Link can do is grunt and yell is archaic. I was very disappointed with this entry.
