D'awwww I expected more from Giantbomb. Don't know why but it seems american reviewers are very big on having a sandbox game. They rate games like GTA and Skyrim and Fallout 3 extremely high forgiving them any faults, but with Zelda a slow start or having similar characters to other Zelda's can already put a dent in the score.

Some of these ratings are disgraceful. An 8? Are you kidding? and this is from sites that gave that buggy mess of a game skyrim a 10. I can't see how an artform like Skyward Sword gets hounded for being repetitive, whereas skyrim is praised for it's incessantly repetitive combat system, bugsand graphics that didn't really live up to what was hyped. It's typical that they see the linear nature of Zelda to be a downside, whereas it makes for a much more interesting, action packed and story oriented than an open world game where the story is lost amongst side quests, the action is reduced from trying to figure out where you are supposed to go next, combat is reduced to an eventual nuisance that was simply stopping you from advancing and the enemies got tiresome and repetitive after only a few hours. Needless to say I'm vastly disappointed

Played Skyrim and found it very similar to oblivion and got quite bored quite fast. Ran into a few bugs which really looked awful and ruined a pretty good game. I admit I haven't played Skyward Sword yet, but I'm pretty sure it'll be better than Oblivion 1.5

So the answer is 'no'. ...playing a game at least gives you some perspective on it (as you did wit Skyrim), but you can't say the same for Zelda. It might be that the negative reviews are accurate or it might be that they are not. You won't be able to decide for yourself till you play it though...so your assertion was a flawed one (which was my point)

Hey guys, I as big a Zelda fan as anyone, but lets remember that reviews are opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs based on their individual tastes.

And ultimately, reviews and awards mean nothing. Citizen Kane lost the best picture oscar to How Green is My Valley... and Crash won a best picture too. What lives on in the public's mind after years of hindsight and what gets the short term glory based on current trends are very differnent things.

I think we can all agree that there is way too many good games out this season.

not just the negative ones. just the extremely conflicting ones (say, jim sterling giving a 10/10 to every kirby game he sees, but giving low scores to other games to get free hits).

read the metacritic quotes instead. no spoilers and a general idea of what the reviewer thinks of the game.

Joystiq's quote on Metacritic makes it sound like it should've gotten a lower score than it did. Interesting conflict there (though that may just be their general romantic-era writing). I'm not reading any of the these reviews as I'm still pulling a media blackout of sorts with the game, but now I know a little of what to expect.

Its really no surprise that the game will receive some lower scores, the art style and lack of voice acting will be polarizing among reviewers.

Agreed. Their point about the motion controls was a big "WTF?" moment for me. For years the Wii has been smashed for the waggle and gimmick of motion controls, Skyward Sword offers a bit of precision in it's combat and the remote "follows you too well." Lol to each his own I guess.

So far the best review has been 1Up IMO. I think that is generally the best idea of the game I'm going to get. They gave it 83.

Giantbomb's review was terrible. Could care less about the score. The whole logic of his review and how he comes to like or dislike aspects of the game is horribly skewed.

It sounds like he was a Zelda hater to begin with. It's that bad.

Did you watch Fallon last night?

There's issues with some of the controls

Seemed like player issues, not game issues since Fallon sucks at everything he plays on that show.

So the sword not mimicking his actions was what then?

Playing live on a talk show vs. playing in your lounge. Syncing isn't that hard.

You're going to have to explain more

So you're saying that the Wiimote wasn't synced?

If that was the case the controller wouldn't work at all

It's hard to mimick any kind of schizophrenic actions, especially when he crosses the Wiimote and nunchuck. This isn't a waggle game, nor is it designed like one. Only idiots are going to play like he did.

I recall the last time, the game was displayed in public like that, at a little show called E3. where it had a ton of problems because of interference. Call me crazy, but I doubt the crowd at the Fallon show was making sure there was no interference. Add that on top of the fact it sounds like he played like a fool, something is immediately believable after watching him play Punch Out. I think its fair to assume, there are no real issues.

Giant Bombs review sucked I mean do they have some vendetta against Zelda.

Jaysonguy

Yeah they're honest, what a concept

Can't tell if trolling or just very stupid. Their reasons for taking a full star away from Skyward Sword were almost the exact same bad points of Uncharted 3, which managed to still score 5/5, along with Skyrim, there are some points in that review that they make that really should have stopped it getting 5 stars, either way, I'm very disappointed with the review because it simply looks like flamebait.
