Having just completed the excellent Twilight Princess on the Wii
on 16 April 2015
Having just completed the excellent Twilight Princess on the Wii, I was initially a bit disappointed in Skyward Sword. The graphics seemed odd and start rather slow. The big difference was using (and having to buy!) a Wii motion controller and being much more physically active throughout the game. However, you soon learn to fly on a bird, guide your flying beetle 'grabber' (the best Zelda tool?) and even violently shake off the baddy jelly blob monsters by shaking both controllers side to side in opposite directions.
It is a highly absorbing game with good puzzles and great weapons and tools which are even more fun when upgraded in the bazaar or flying shop.
The end of level baddies take some beating and the timed challenges really get your heart racing.
Played for 40 hours so far and still quite a few to go. Don't be put off by the slow start it soon gets exciting. Thoroughly recommended. 100%!!
