Skyward Sword's Criticisms are unwarranted because they fail to take into account the fact that the game has the best plot in Zelda, has excellent controls, and that and it does have exploration, among other things.
I totally agree! I loved the controls and the story
best story in the series. I was hoping for something like that with BoTW tbh...hopefully the DLC is amazing.
Skyward Sword just wasn’t my thing. Loved that gold wii mote though
I'd be interested to see how much that set would be mint right now. the CD was great too!
I would love a Skyward Sword remaster for my Switch...as well as a Twilight Princess one as well. The other titles can be on the Virtual Console. :)
A full collection would be nice. or close to it. the main narrative/console games. shouldn't be that expensive considering TP and WWHD are kinda old now.
naaah. i found the controls to be atrocious and the world to be rather dull. its the worst mainline zelda game ive ever played.
You lost me at "excellent controls". If they had restricted motion control to things that truly benefit from it, then I'd agree with you. Anything that can be a button press (or progressive-trigger pull) should always be just that, not needless, dodgy waggle. Not saying I didn't like SS. I loved it, despite the control handicap.
Like with anything, criticisms are always warranted for even the best games. How can games improve over time if we just pretend they're perfect all the time? Even perfect 10s for me are games where the flaws don't matter to me, but I'm of the opinion that the perfect game doesn't exist. Realistically, I'd never be able to say a game is a perfect 10, but my absolute favourite games get that score from me because there are so many positives. All I'm saying is, it's fine to disagree with the masses, but to say criticism is unwarranted...I strongly disagree. You can say that maybe it's not as bad as people think, but that's a far less absolute statement. Besides, Skyward Sword is only regarded as less than stellar by Zelda standards, which is a consistently great series where even the least popular entries are as good as some of the best entries in a lot of other series. Keep in mind, it's in the same franchise as greats like Ocarina of Time and now Breath of the Wild. That's some steep competition, so when Zelda fans say it comes up short, it's not hard to see why.
