The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review

 

The Wii Remote really is a remarkably versatile little controller. At its best, it offers a degree of precision not found with traditional controllers, and completely transforms games in the process. But until now, it's never quite been able to make...

Apart from minor hiccups, Skyward Sword is a remarkably well-designed adventure with some superb boss encounters, the best of which seamlessly integrate the motion controls that lay at the heart of the experience. Its main sins are that it's a bit of a...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review

 

Is Link's latest Wii-based adventure a return to form or just more of the same?

Zelda’s getting a bit flabby with age, but Skyward Sword remains a fitting tribute to the legendary series and outgoing Wii console

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Wii Review

 

Being introduced to the world 25 years ago, The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's most enduring of franchises, and in that period the basic formula has largely stayed the same, with the occasional flirt with invention with the likes of Majora's...

Skyward Sword, whilst not the most intricate of the series, is as carefully and cleverly designed as always, but those that have long been seeking a dramatic reconstruction of Zelda will once again come away disappointed, though will perhaps be...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

 

Did you know it is the 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda this year? It would be quite surprising if Nintendo's continual bombardment of that fact had failed to filter through to most of the Internet-enabled populace. Just in case you haven't...

Review Look who it is. Just when you thought that the dust-gathering ornament you used to call a Nintendo games console was in permanent retirement, back it bounds. Why? Because there's a new Legend of Zelda in town - a game most will have played...

Nintendo has produced one of Link’s most memorable adventures yet, a rich tapestry of strange characters, memorable locations full of flourish and mischievous bosses. By taking MotionPlus to heart, it has created an interface unlike that of any other...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - wii

 

Return of the swing.

The Legend of Zelda games may traditionally focus on the heroic adventures of mild-mannered elves and shy princesses, but the roar that met the E3 announcement of the latest instalment was anything but gentle

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

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...
