    This game is truly a Zelda game.

    Rated on February 27, 2012 by zell1

    This is something new in the Zelda series, and I like it. I think they should keep this art style and continue the rpg elements on it. Not everyone will like this game, my opinion if you are fat and/o...

    Rated on March 08, 2012 by shabreeze

    I got this game for Christmas. I was pretty excited when I first heard about it because I have never anticipated a Zelda game. I really don't anticipate many games because I always end up playing th...

    Extremely fun combat utilizing the wii remote plus and a lengthy story. But is more always better?

    Skyward sword, I have to say, may be my favorite zelda game since OOT. Most of that can be attributed to controls. The 1:1 sword fighting is extremely fun, and adds a bit of challenge and change to a ...

    A great game that still feels lacking.

    Rated on March 13, 2012 by Akel777

    Skyward Sword is a Zelda game, make no mistake about it. If you've ever played a Zelda game, you'll know what to expect. Its dungeons are generally impressive with neat mechanics. The story and charac...
