It's been more than a year since the release of Skyward Sword and I always keep hearing people saying is the worst Zelda game or that it didn't lived to expectations.
I want to know why people didn't like the game. In my opinion the game is really good, is by no means my favorite Zelda game but nevertheless is a great game.
I do have some complaints about Skyward Sword:
1- Fi talks too much - I know she is the spirit of the Master Sword and what not but geez shut up! 10x worst than Navi :p
2- Night and Day - when you think about it, Zelda: Skyward Sword only have 3 places where it can be night (Skyloft, the Pumpkin place and Beedle's house) and there isn't much to do in those places, there are some side-quest you can do and you can collect some Gratitude tears (don't remember if that's their official name) but I feel like there is something to be desire about the night. Other Zelda games have a huge world to explore in both night and day and in some games it feels like "different" world with different characters and minigames to do. In SS it feels empty somehow.
3- Lack of exploration - This kinda goes hand in hand with my second point. The sky itself is empty, I mean if you don't collect the Goddess cubes there is no reason to explore the sky. Almost all sky islands are empty but very few to do in them, which is really disappointing.
Those 3 points are the major ones I didn't liked about the game, there are some other minor ones but I would probably be nitpicking.
The surface areas are great and the dungeons are really fantastic (specially the last one). The big problem most people have with the game are motion controls, but honestly I never had a problem with them. The controls were very precise and when they didn't worked I just simple recalibrate the Wiimote and everything was fine again, so I don't know what's the big deal about that.
Anyway, did you liked SS? Did you hated it? Discuss.
