I'm having withdrawels from Skyward Sword. I'm at my girlfriends for Xmas holidays, 3 hours away. I was assured that she had a Motion Plus controller or attachement so I only brang my console, game and normal Wii Remotes ...she can't find her Motion Plus stuff so I haven't been able to play =( Oh well, Mario Kart 7 will ease that pain

Just finished it.

OMG epic!

Have to say .. it's up there with one of my most favourite Zelda games, it's also a great origin story.

So much great Ghirahim stuff going around, especially on Tumblr. So much bad stuff as well.

I finished it last night, though I stupidly opted to play again in hero mode when there was more I wanted to do (more goddess cubes, graditude crystals) but I have a save file just before getting the song of heroes, so not a huge issue.

Spoiler


Brilliant game, easily as good as OoT in my eyes. Loved every minute of it, even the frustrating times.

Well I made an effort today and spent 5 minutes in my newly acquired Dungeon 4 before getting annoyed :P Went and cocked around gathering collectables and cocking around in the overworld, before checking the Shieka stone to see how to start out Dungeon 4. Pretty easy to see which item I'll be getting here :P

So I got the game today, and played up to the point Zelda gets taken away from a black tornado(when its clearly not black :P). And gotta say the game is great, with this being the first time I've used a game that featured Motion+ it feels sort of the same really, also I noticed there's a bit of a lag, is that supposed to happen?

The facial expressions in the characters faces are great, they add a whole lot more personality to the game, like Zelda in particular.

Still one of the best things in this game is Link jumping into lava... The whole "Monkey" style noise he makes is fantastic!

I got this for Christmas, and just finished it this morning. The only things I disliked were how the controls seemed to slowly set themselves out of alignment as I played (though this could have been a problem with one/all of the parts of the controller) and Fi. I think this might be my second favourite Zelda game, after Majora's Mask.

Ok, all hearts collected, thunder dragon challenge... battle completed enough times... pretty much just got the final part to go and unless there's a secret bonus to get like in MMask, I'm thinking I'm around 100% atm. Just gotta scour the world for more goddess cubes just incase.

I'm up to Dungeon 5 soon I imagine. Just got the secondlast B item it seems.

For anyone who hasn't go and explore the temple area of town, with said item. There's an interesting patch of flowers, my reaction was priceless.

I'll just post this picture here from 1991 right here. Probably shouldn't look at it if you haven't finished the game, but like I said, this is a very old image.

^ Watch the spoilers for people who haven't finished the game yet!

Weird, I swear I posted here earlier...

Up to the "second" area in the desert, really cool/slightly sad area!

I thought this too! Like nothing about the story makes it obviously sad, but it kinda is when you think about it.

It is extremely cool taking the transport though, I don't think I've seen such a contrast in a game world before.

I got my hopes up for a remix of music from a previous Zelda game to kick in, but alas :P

Also, be very wary once you beat the game. If you choose to do Hero Mode, it will WIPE YOUR SAVE. Make a copy of your current file or just say no and beat the final boss again when you're ready to move on.


Yeah, that happens.. :cry:

Well, my brother was kind enough to give me this game as a present for Christmas (although it's still on its way since it was ordered online), so I guess I'll be finding out firsthand whether any of my skepticism was warranted, and perhaps find a great enjoyable game in the process. Xenoblade has taught me to at least give something a chance, so I will endeavour to let go of my negative predesposition whilst I wait for it to arrive.

Here's hoping to some good hours ahead. :)

The game has some pretty noticeable flaws, but you'll see when you play it. I will say though, it's high points are pretty great. It's the low points that are the problem. A lot of them were so avoidable considering the game they made, while others were a problem of how they went about making the game. Still very enjoyable IMO, but I can't say you'll feel the same way about it.
