Skyward Sword is different from the rest of the previous Zelda games. It has motion control now which changes the game. The fighting in this game is now more difficult due to the motion control. You now have to time your swing correctly to defeat a monster instead of the pressing a single button.Some monsters may be difficult or some are just plain simple and easy to defeat. The game has many dungeons with elaborate puzzles which you have to figure out to continue and the dungeon layout looks amazing. Also in this game the way you use items is different. You are introduced to new and old items, but the way you use them is different from before. Added to this game is an upgrade system that allows you to improve the items you are currently holding and make them better or stronger to help you out. To sum this up motion control has changed the way you play Zelda.
