So I have been thinking... Skyward Sword, that game... I really can't describe it. I would like to do a re-review of it, but a full on one this time. I'm going to put down some of my personal thoughts here that will be within the review.
Zelda has always been my favorite in terms of gameplay and control. The 3D Zelda's are a prime example of howmuch I love video games, nothing comes close too them for me. With Skyward Sword, it is the same concept for gameplay but with the addition of Wii Motion Plus, the combat has been highly upgraded. You feel as if your sword and controller are one, a relationship I have never had in any other game, EVER. It also adds a lot of challenge to the combat, as previous Zelda games were much simpler, Skyward Sword makes you read your opponents stance and not only do enemies defend, but they react, and it's more like a strategic battle rather than simple button mashing. There are also many and I mean MANY of mind-boggling puzzles, there's several in every single dungeon that will make you wander around until you finally complete it, so the puzzles are also harder in this game. Now, when you look at the gameplay, it looks like Twilight Princess but with a much more gorgeous art style, and it just has a feel that no and I repeat NO Zelda game has ever had.
Zelda has always chosen nice art styles, but Skyward Sword is a prime example at how creative Nintendo is. These graphics are very unique, and I must say GORGEOUS. I have never been so fascinated by how a game's graphics look, I really never care about graphics, but Skyward Sword is the only game that I have been actually stunned at how the art style looks at every place you visit, and how much it helps the cinematic scenes. To me, graphics aren't about how realistic they should appear to be, but rather beautiful... Skyward Sword looks so amazing that I actually spend hours just walking around and appreciating howmuch thought and effort was put into them.
Zelda is my all time favorite game series, and I have so much love for it. Ocarina of Time was my favorite game of all time, ever since I first played it when I was three years old. Twilight Princess was a close second to it, and I was honestly stunned at how amazing those two games were. How could they ever be beaten? Skyward Sword comes out and not only is it the most gorgeous, cinematic, addicting, and fun game ever, it is the GREATEST game ever created. Nintendo put so much effort into this game that I honestly don't think another Zelda game will come close... not for a long time atleast. It took thirteen years for Ocarina of Time to be beaten, so WHO knows how long it will take for Skyward Sword to be beaten. Just by howmuch work and time was put into this game, I am stunned... Not even Ocarina of Time has made me stunned at a point. Calling Skyward Sword the best Zelda game EVER is a huge thing to say, The Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular and iconic series in the HISTORY of gaming. Nintendo, I highly appreciate and I am VERY grateful for the love and care you put into your games... but this brought it to a whole new level. Please remember, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword is the best game you've ever created, and it will take a long time before it will be surpassed.
I hope that did more justice for my appreciation of the game.
