Pick up a Wii Remote, slap in a MotionPlus, and get ready to swing Link's sword once again.

Princess Zelda and the six shrine maidens terror that the cause for these proceedings is that Vaati's seal is deteriorating once again. The sound design for Four Swords Adventures will be still more recognizable to anybody who has played any Zelda game. zelda sword
one of the best zelda games of all time, heck it should get a 10
I have yet to beat this game, but I'm about halfway through and it is an excellent game. Although I got kind of tired of the motion controls after a while, and I think that may be why I haven't beaten it yet. I hope they have an option to play with the Pro Controller in the next Zelda game for the Wii U. The Legend of Zelda series is probably my favorite game series of all time, and I'd like to have the option to play with a controller like I've done with past Zelda games. Although, if they stick with motion controls, it's not going to keep me from playing the Zelda games. And I do agree that it is nice to include a bit of thinking when you're attacking somebody
i thought the same thing. But be warned because on the internet people who have already made up there minds about games good or bad will flame you for a positive or negative review.
This game is a must buy for Wii owners. My heart was racing in some of the boss battles.
I have been waiting for this game since the trailer at E3 2010, and when I finally got it, it did not disappoint, because of every single thing Jared mentioned in his review(though dowsing and swimming never really bothered me that much)
No one cares. Saying that there shouldn't be something is like saying that you designed it and your team didn't follow instructions. But wait... you are not the creator of this game. So shut up and let people who can understand and enjoy new concepts play this game. No one cares about your opinion if it does not matter. And you as person dont matter. so your opinion means less anyhow.
I'm no Zelda expert, but I still love this game. The combat is realistic and works well. Also, I don't think I've ever seen Link with more emotion (though this could stem from me not having played many Zelda games). The creativity in the puzzles also stunned me. Oh yeah, once you get to Hero mode, my God, is it a step up in difficulty. One little mistake takes away a big chunk of health. The boss endurance also becomes brutal. I know there aren't as many secrets here, and it does have little to find, but at least you don't have to do stupid stuff like play the Song of Storms next to a tree.
Yeah...you're absolutely right and I'd love to rent it but the thing is where I live there are no companies that rent games :( but i'll maybe find someone to lend it to me :)
Jared's absolutely right: the actual surface of the world is like a dungeon in itself. This game is challenging, it keeps you interested, and yes, you absolutely want to rescue Zelda. I loved Twilight Princess, but this game is pretty equal in strength. Only thing I do have to say is that I never put enough time into playing it, which I don't really have a reason for. It might have to do with the fact that the constant dungeonish aspect of the game makes me work my brain, and the combat system as well, which even though is an excellent example of gameplay mechanics, it makes it so I only play the game one dungeon at a time. Its helping me to enjoy it though, and this game is absolutely beautiful. I quite honestly had tears in my eyes within 2 minutes of the game beginning. And oh my gosh I want to rescue Zelda so bad! After this weekend I'm gonna devote myself to this game even more. Excellent review Jared.
Maybe give it a rent. It couldn't hurt and it might give you a reason to play the Wii again, even if its only for that one game.
I've heard nothing but good things about this game. While I mostly just use the Wii as a second netflix box for the family these days, I just might have to dust it off and reclaim it just to play this game. I can't wait.
After watching Yahtzee's review before and now this, I came to the conclusion that anyone can be a video game reviewer. Well, anyone who likes video games, has a strong opinion, and the some sort of charisma?, I guess (well the ability to present you point of view in a manner that other people pay attention to)
If you have a wii and don't have this, GIVE YOUR WII TO ME!
I like the graphics in ZELDA SKYWARD SWORD.
I'm surprised you didn't mention theme of romance but there really wasn't that many great memorable tracks in this game, which is rare to say about a Zelda game
This is, in my opinion, withour having played Arkham city, the game of the year. Yes i have played Skyrim.. I just LOVE this game. It is the second best game EVER. Skyward sword is the game i have been waiting for since OOT. Cant wait to play it all over again someday!
I see what you're saying but it is true...I just don't feel like going back to the Wii...
That's the lamest reason I have ever heard for not getting a great game.
Why do so many people love this game? I HATE it. The whole game is just an excuse to be 40 hours. There shouldn't be a dungeon to get into a dungeon. There shouldn't be an excuse as soon as you get to the water dragon to get her water because she needs to recover. I shouldn't have to go find a pin on a air wheel just to blow air onto it just like I did with the other.
The games teases you that something amazing is going to happen **SPOILERS** when you go back in time. Nope. You just stay in the same room you were in. And now I have to find the triforce pieces? Joy.
