Here, have a small, amateur (AND SPOILER FREE! 8D) review about the newest installment of the Zelda series, Skyward Sword.
I only really have ONE gripe with this game so far.
THE FUCKING CONTROLS. They’re fucking awful. You have to swing the sword a certain way to defeat certain enemies such as Bokoblins and Deku Babas. But of course, Nintendo fucked us over with their shoddy motion sensing technology that SUCKS. The Wii MotionPlus does absolutely nothing to heighten the Wii’s ability to sense your movement. These awful motion controls really take a lot out of the game for me. Battling is a huge part of the Zelda series, but if I have to do all these complex hand motions that sometimes the Wii won’t sense to do a fucking spin attack, I don’t know if I can even finish the game. They’re THAT bad.
If you’re willing to get over the pain in the ass controls, then it might be easier for you to enjoy the vast setting of Skyloft and the many characters that inhabit it. They’re all extremely charming in their own way and they all have a specific attribute that defines them from all of the other characters…Well, except for Cawlin and Strich. But for reasons I haven’t yet discovered, I have found it extremely difficult (but not impossible like the fucking controls) to adapt to is this new universe that Skyward Sword brings us into. I don’t know what it is. Hopefully this will eventually fade as I indulge myself deeper into the game.
Something I really enjoy about Skyward Sword is how much time they spent on the comedic value of the game. Go on, kiddies. Sit on the toilet. You’re in for a.. startling surprise.
The story though, has done well to keep my interest. Not even at the first temple yet and there are already a couple of shocking twists. They say this game is supposed to take place directly before Ocarina of Time, but I’m having an extremely hard time believing this. I can’t fit the puzzle pieces together!
That’s really all I have to say about this game, because I’m wanting to say more but I can’t because I promised I wouldn’t spoil anything. So go on and explore the game! The veteran Zelda gamers are in for some interesting surprises, hoo hoo.
OH, AND BY THE WAY. FI IS MUCH WORSE THAN NAVI. TAKE THAT, FUCKERS.
