Correction "Skyward Sword creates frustration through motion."

I understand your feelings, it wasn't perfect by any means. I do feel, however, that when it comes to motion control, Skyward Sword did it with the most dedication.

I don't know... Red Steel 2 was also superb and, dare I say, more natural. Skyward Sword went overboard with the motion controls, putting them even in places where it wasn't needed at all... seriously, using motion controls for Link's underwater swimming? Or for flying? Ugh.

Red Steel 2, on the other hand, used the motions more appropriately, from what I remember.

I had very little problems with the motion control. It's not perfect but it still works very well.

Motion control was a fad, I didn't finish Skyward Sword because of it.

This game had such a legendary story. Also, down on the d pad and "refocusing" was such a good idea, I don't understand why not every single wii game had that mechanic.

Lazybones2020787d ago

I completely agree! That was one of the best mechanics. The story is definitely among my favorites in any video game!

I'm gonna miss motion controls. Dragon Quest Swords is one of my favorite games of all time .
Would highly recommend it if u enjoyed Skyward Swords controls

Lazybones2020787d ago

I always wanted to give that game a try! I really enjoy Dragon Quest so I'm sure it would be loads of fun knowing it has fun sword play!

I like Dragon Quest Swords but for something like Dragon Quest I just want a standard turn based rpg. It's what got me into rpgs. I will miss Skyward Sword's motion controls in BotW as well.

The only time I struggled with the motion controls were for that one boss where you had to bowl to hurt it. The fight took me longer then it should of because of it.
