The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword


25 years ago in the land of Hyrule, a stout, green-clad adventurer wandered into a dark cave where he found an old man alone between two torches. “It's dangerous to go alone,” the old man said, as he offered the boy a sword and sent him out into the...

We have waited a long time for a true, Wii Zelda game. Skyward Sword clearly represents the pinnacle of the Wii’s capabilities both graphically and in terms of motion controls. Unfortunately neither works perfectly. The improved mechanics as well as...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review


Game of the year AND controller shame of the year.

Classic Zelda formula with welcome tweaks and a smarter interface, massive world to explore, level design is masterful, puzzle-solving action is near-perfect

Controls are intermittently infuriating

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword


It's a good time to be a gamer. This Christmas season has been host to some of the best in gaming history and we're all spoilt for choice. So, which should we choose to keep us and our loved ones busy over the festive season? To date, almost 90 million...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review


Zelda is something that I've always loved but also something that I've never actively looked forward to. I did get quite a bit excited for Skyward Sword earlier this month, mainly because of how much I didn't know about the game and then how close it...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review [Wii]


What better way to wave goodbye to the Nintendo console that changed everything with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword? It couldn't have been pitched any better, really. Finally, we have a game which has answered our pleas and taken full advantage of...

The Wii's run may be over, but it's going out in style.

Best Zelda game yet; …and the best story, too; Terrific, fitting art style; Great balance between sky and surface exploration; Motion controls work great for everything; Far deeper, tougher combat than any other Zelda; Great boss fights with just the...

The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Playtest – Unsheathe Your Wii Remote


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword begins with Link on a floating continent. He wakes up from his room in the Knight Academy where he and Zelda reside.

The idea of seeing Hyrule’s past gave an Nintendo opportunity to tie-in events Zelda fans expect with clear connections to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It seemed like surprises were sprinkled around every corner and the more I played Skyward...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review


Skyward Sword stays true to the Zelda formula, carrying many of the same strengths and weaknesses that have been present for years.

Excellent dungeon design ; A host of worthwhile collectibles ; Great boss fights ; Strong visuals

Troublesome controls ; Lots of padding ; Predictable formula

It's a shame that you spend so much time fighting the controls in Skyward Sword because the content is quite enjoyable. Dungeon design is particularly impressive. Recent entries in the series got into the predictable habit of introducing a new item in...

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)


The Wii gets one last chance to make good on its potential in Link's latest adventure. Is Nintendo successful, or were we really better off with traditional controllers after all?

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Hands-On Preview


Link, I miss you. Yes, getting re-acquainted with you on the 3DS was great and all, but it didn't fulfill my Zelda needs. I need something NEW, something we've never shared before...which is making the wait for Skyward Sword all the more difficult.
