So, well, I bought this one juste because there was less than 40 CHF difference between the wiimote and the wiimote + this game.

Wiimote Plus Zelda Skyward Sword

Graphically, it is nice, I like the drawing style, the theme and all, you can see clearly that for example Link’s clothing are a mailshirt with a tunic, and not a ridiculous kids uniform.

Grade: 8 / 10

Musically it is nice, good themes that go well with the ambiance of the moment. And in addition, you get the CD that is worth listening to.
Grade: 8 / 10

Technically, it is… problematic. Once in two tries, when I raise my wiimote to charge the sword, it does not acknowledge my movement as it should. The fights are easy in that by moving your arms repeatedly and quickly in all direction, you can kill any monster… the game is simply physically exhausting after a while. By the way, even Link has a tiredness gauge.

Length / Sidequests
About sidequests, it seems all right. Maniac as I am, I will try to collect everything, obviously. We will see how long I can go 😛 About the length, sinc what I did is only the prologue, it should be more than all right.
Grade: 8 / 10

Story / characters
On the topic of the storyline – plot, it is … too full of clichés. The rival doing stupid things to win, the girl who is the one who gets “caught”, the hero with premonitory dreams… yes, I know, it corresponds to the Zelda style, but this is too much. “oooh, the prophetic text I read says exactly the same”, “oooh, my dream did show exactly that”, … The characters are very usual.
Grade: 7 / 10

In the end…
I do not regret having paid a bit more for my wiimote motion plus… because I got 1) A zelda collector wiimote 2) this game. But I think I would not have bought it, if it had been alone.
Final grade: 7.6 / 10
