Description

One of the most storied franchises in history soars to new heights.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shakes up the tried-and-true adventure game formula and marks a turning point for the franchise. The introduction of full motion controls enabled by Wii MotionPlus technology synchronises player movements with Link's actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in the series to date.
The precise Wii MotionPlus functionality in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword turns every encounter into a challenge of both brains and brawn.
Wii MotionPlus technology accurately translates the angle of every sword slice, effectively putting Link's blade in the player's hand. Analysing enemy attack and defence tendencies and counteracting with precise swings of the sword provide a satisfying experience that blends puzzle-solving with a new and distinctly unique combat system.

Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link soars through the skies on the back of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Prepare for intense puzzle-solving as only The Legend of Zelda games can deliver. Exploration of the forests, volcanoes and deserts requires players to think on their feet as they solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and escape deadly traps. Once they find their way to each dungeon, they are confronted by even more puzzles guarded by fiendish enemies.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword redefines the traditional Zelda framework and introduces an arsenal of items, upgrades and rewards unlike any game in the franchise to date. The adventure guides players into, out of and back to dungeons and areas they've already completed.

Along the way, Link gathers a massive inventory of peculiar items and resources that can be used to upgrade many of his weapons and equipment.

Features:

  • Thanks to the required Wii MotionPlus accessory, every movement of Link's sword matches the player's motion with exact precision. If players motion left to right, Link swings from left to right. The precision play control is applied to enemies as well, as players must contemplate strategy when battling opponents that actively try to defend against attacks.
  • Wii MotionPlus puts an arsenal of items at the player's disposal. It offers a multitude of actions with just simple, intuitive motions. Players will try their hand at firing a bow, tossing bombs and using a whip to battle enemies and solve puzzles.
  • The game will also introduce a distinct new graphical style perfectly suited to the franchise's fantastical universe, like a painting come to life.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will offer a multitude of new game-play mechanics, giving it a refreshingly different feel from all of the past titles in the series.

Zelda at its best.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is one of the best Zelda games to date. The new motion plus control now really makes sense. Although the graphics aren't HD like on other consoles, Skyward Sword looks and feels amazing for a Wii game. I love it! Get it!

Great game - shame about extra hidden cost.

Bought this game for my husband for Christmas and was really pleased to get it at a good price. Extremely disappointed on Boxing Day when my husband went to play the game and discovered that he had to have the Wii Motion Plus adapter in order to play the game. This was not highlighted at all when I purchased the game and certainly should have been not only so that the game could be played, but also because of the extra cost. Great game though!!

It's a Zelda alright

This is the first Zelda to feature motion controls as the main control scheme. Twilight Princess did that in the Wii version, but to a lesser degree, and there was the Gamevube version with a regular controller. Skyward Sword makes use of Nintendo's Motion plus addon and thus the motion is sharper than it was with Twilight Princess. It does takes some getting used to, as the motion still isn't 1:1, but once you get the hang of it it plays well. The overall style is a notch brighter than Twilight Princess, but still intriguing. There are some new tricks to accompany old classics like the boomerang, i.e. remote controlled bug. Combat is designed to feel like combat to the player as well, as you have to hold the Wiimote and the nunchaku as you want Link to hold his sword and shield. Same with the bow, you need to position yourself like it you were holding a bow and arrow. Overall a very good game, truly worthy of the title of Zelda.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is an amazing game. It's so diverse and I like the way that you have to hunt down and search for things, It also has lots of action. A really good option for someone who likes an action game with a twist.

As good as it ever was

It's as good as Zelda ever was. The improvements are that it holds your hand along the way a bit more without it feeling like it is holding your hand (so you can do it all on your own if you have the patience) and the sword fighting is better with the motion plus, though not as perfect as we would all have hoped. But don't expect much new as the game format (as well designed as it is) stays pretty much the same as it has since Ocarina. So if you liked the old ones, then buy, if you didn't, then don't!

Come with me!

Well, at first i have to say, that this is my first Zelda game. I´ve heard a lot, how good the Zelda games are and this game is not as good as i expected, it is even better. So, the Game is the best Game for Nintendo Wii that i have ever played. It starts with a lovely story about Zelda and Link, and you can feel how much they like each other. When suddenly Zelda gets missed. It´s not a story that you want to play through. YOU want to save Zelda. YOU want to go abroad and find her. You feel like Link. You act like Link. It´s just like, you are in the game. A fantastic feeling. I can just suggest to buy this game. Especially for Nintedo Wii owners: You are right here. This is the game you are looking for.

Zelda - Skyward Sword

It's one of the top Zelda games I ever played. And my favorite is Zelda - A Link to the Past. The graphics is great, I don't think the little box can put out any better. And the story are bigger than the earlier Zelda games. Hope you will enjoy the game as I did!! :)
