One of the worst Zelda games...yay.



Around the Network

The game had a great art style, but the impressionism and SD fuzziness didn't mix well.

I really can't imagine it playing well with button controls. But, I guess we'll see.



I'm not sure if it's just me, but it looks like Skyward Sword HD is running in 60fps.

Does kinda look that way. I think it looks great, considering its age.

That's because it is

That's awesome!

While I am pretty tired of Nintendo endlessly repackaging old games on Switch, at least in this case it's a game that will hopefully be better appreciated now; it got a lot of undeserved bashing in its day because motion controls and linearity were considered uncool in 2011.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Hopefully this game will come to be more appreciated once it gets exposed to a wider audience. It is one of the better 3D Zelda games, but the second Zelda release on a console has always sold worse than the first. It was a bit late in the Wii's lifecycle, so not as many people played this one as it deserved.

The worst and lamest zelda. 

And take Aonuma Style. Lost hope for Botw2. 



Still my favorite Zelda game of all time and a game I feel gest bashed and hated far too often. Does it have its flaws? Yes. But it's still got that charm, awe, and 'feel' that makes a Zelda game, a Zelda game. And the motion controls are actually the best part about the game.

Even though I prefer traditional controls, I truly believe that when you have that one game, which brings out the best in motion controls and executes them to the best of its abilities, that there is no better way to play a video game. Skyward Sword was that game for me. It's the game the Wii was built for. And it's the game that made the Legend of Zelda my favorite Nintendo franchise.

And the fact that it is getting put on the Switch right when the system is still at its peak makes me very happy because it means that a lot of people will get to experience the game firsthand and hopefully it'll get the praise and recognition it deserves.

I kind of thought I was looking at regular Wii footage and expected to see like a transition to a much cleaner image, but then I realized that this was already it. Bit of a bummer, it’s like Twilight Princess; looks the same but with higher resolution. At least with Wind Waker they improved all kinds of things, most notably of course the lighting.
