A new video review has been released by Youtuber Kwing that comprehensively covers his thoughts on the various aspects of Skyward Sword. The video is free of new plot spoilers, but does reference many of the game’s plot and gameplay points that have already been covered by Nintendo’s official trailers and commercials for the game.

No official score is given, but it doesn’t make much of a difference as the reviewer’s thoughts on the game are fairly clear either way. You can hit the jump to watch the video.

    The people that gave it a 7.5 don't have a life and can't see how amazing this game is and don't know s@#t about video games and the rating is determined on the fans and I give this a complete 10/10, I for one can't wait to open this first Christmas morning.

      How can you give it a 10/10 without playing it….

      So you go online, look at someone's OPINION about something you don't agree with, then go onto a website to complain and say that person who gave a different OPINION than yours has no life? Do you not see the hypocrisy?

  • If there's anything I agree about with the review, it's that Nintendo went all out on Skyward Sword. It's an amazing game on all fronts.

    Skyward Sword is the best Zelda in 10 years. I have no problems making that claim.

    It's basically the best of everything from a video game franchise with 25 years of experience. I won't spoil anything since I beat the game on Wednesday.

    Despite being a relatively linear way to play a Zelda game, there's still lots of room for exploration and doing your own thing. I love that it's a Zelda game where using the MAP is actually crucial and useful. I love that you can't just play sloppily and expect to beat enemies (or bosses for that matter).

    I've actually seen how sloppy I can be when I get too comfortable in a boss battle. Molderach the first time I played him was an incredibly easy fight… I was proud that I made every strike count. In the Boss Challenge mode though I was over confident and wasn't taking my time to aim properly and it became very clear that I needed to take some time and make sure to strike properly.

    That's simply one example… I've almost been wiped out by Skulltulla's (before the beetle, you have to spin them around and stab that weak point, and it's harder done when they are going all over the place) and 3 headed serpents.

    There's a slight bit of padding right at the end, where you retread to certain places…. but it doesn't feel like padding. Not in the way that Wind Waker made you run around the sea collecting Triforce bits. The padding is very story and event driven and feels worth while and is exciting and fun. Providing new situations to figure out.

    It's also satisfying to get to have repeat encounters with bosses… strengthening them and making them memorable.

    This is by and large the pinnacle of Zelda games, and I hope it becomes as appreciated as others in the series like Majora's Mask.

    Amazing game

  • I love Skyward Sword after two years of waiting I finally got to play it and to make things better I got it the day it came out 11/20/11 and I was able to play it over Thanksgiving Break. Also I don't mind reading the text. I love practicing my voice acting skills.
