features

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasts the most realistic sword combat of any game to date, turning 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. Analyzing enemy attack and defense 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

Best Zelda? Yes.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword brings a lot of new and old things to the table. While it still has a "Zelda-feel" to it, the progression and gameplay itself has been slightly changed which makes it one of, if not, the best Zelda game ever made.

Firstly, 1:1 sword combat is the best idea that Nintendo has ever come up with and it marks a new milestone for the franchise. After playing Skyward Sword, I didn't want to play any other Zelda games without this 1:1 combat, made available thanks to the Wii Motion Plus. This combat offers so deep tactics and you can't mash buttons to win your way out of the victory anymore.

On the visuals side, it is the best graphics on Wii, period. I wasn't sure if this water painting-esque art style would be suitable for Zelda but surprisingly, it fits very, very well with the game's atmosphere and tone.

Music is one of greatest thing Skyward Sword has to offer. It has almost full orchestrated music that Nintendo fans have been wanting and waiting for ever since before Twilight Princess came out. If you are fan of the franchise, classic themes that has turned into fully orchestrated tracks will blow you away.

So what's different about Skyward Sword? Well, first off, you're not saving a princess anymore but your old childhood friend from, not Ganondorf, but from a new flamboyant antagonist named Ghirahim. Also, instead of having an open-world field to run around in, it has changed into sort of like dungeons. To those who are skeptical about this, you can still explore the skies with your giant bird, Loftwing.

Skyward Sword has easily been one of best experiences I had in video games and this is a must-buy for any Wii owners. This will take you up to 50 hours to complete 100% and trust me, you'll be wanting to finish it completely because it is THAT great.

Zelda (Controller Bundle) Edition
WOW I must say thank you to Play-Asia for actually getting their hands on this special bundle otherwise I would have never been able to get a golden controller where I live. The game is typical Zelda fair, you start out as a teenager then become the greatest hero of the land. This build up along wit the rich landscape is what makes these games great. Precise controls using a motion based scheme; the story is wonderful and as always Zelda's music is GREATNESS a must buy if you own a Wii.
