    Having the Wii version in my collection, I am happy to say this is a worthwhile HD remaster. Being able to skip some of the handholding and not use motion controls is how the game should have been released originally. The graphics and load times are a huge improvement.

    A great classic brought to the switch. The game is very fun from the old wii era of Nintendo. The controller settings take getting used to if you are more familiar with breath of the wild controls as this game was meant for the wii motion plus. Luckily if you don’t like the motion controls you can swap to the normal button controls. The graphics are nice and have been up scaled for the switch resolutions. This game will bring you many hours of fun.

    Skyward Sword is Amazing

    This is a fantastic port from the Wii to Switch. I enjoyed Skyward Sword with the motion plus controller for the Wii and beat it several times. Playing it now on the Switch with my son has been the best. The game still has an interesting pastel pallet for it's landscapes but the models and everything else are much sharper and detailed now. This is a great game if you like The Legend of Zelda Series. If you haven't played it, canonically it's the first and it's amazing what you get to experience and see how it all began. If your only Zelda game has been Breath of the Wild, which is also an amazing entry in the series, this game is more grounded in what the other 3D Zelda games have been. By this I mean having actual dungeons and a more linear progression vs open world exploration. Bot h are good in their own ways, but if you're looking for a more traditional 3D Zelda experience with a great story and great gameplay, this is it.

    I’m a overall Zelda fan & was excited that they re-HD’d Skyward Sword. I never played it when it was first released, but I watched videos of others play through the original. It is refreshing to be able to experience the beginning of the Zelda timeline, especially if you are a fan of BOTW… I know it is all out of order. After playing through the game the controls work wonderfully; motion control & button control. It does get frustrating that you have to reset the gyro a couple of times, but you get used to it after you start to play through the story more. This game is exciting, heart-racing & exhausting (in a good way.) You should give this game a try. I wasn’t gong to buy it at first, but I came around and just grabbed it. And as an added bonus Best Buy threw in a free decal set!

    I loved the original game for the wii when I was a kid and I love this HD remake of it. The colors are bright, the visuals are crisp and the music is just as beautiful as I remember it being. This has to be one of the best legend of zelda games I've ever played.

    This is a game that is meant for any Zelda fans. The controlling isn’t perfect but it’s still way better than the Nintendo Wii version. If you enjoy that version you will enjoy this version more.

    An absolutely fantastic game. While the original Wii version did receive criticism for its use of motion controls, this edition allows the use of typical controller inputs.

    It’s skyward sword with the annoying stuff taken out and remastered with more intuitive controls. What’s not to love. I tried playing the original for a bit when it came out and it was annoying to swing the sword but this works great! A great buy especially if you never played the original

    I've played multiple The Legend of Zelda games and the majority of them have been breath taking and so much fun that I've replayed them multiple times. This game is in the middle in my opinion, it has good animation and storyline but just having to go back and forth to the sky and ground gets tiring and something irritating if you're trying to relax.

    It’s OK for a Zelda game

    One of the weaker Zelda games. The controls get in the way too often (you have to manually swing control stick to swing sword, causing mis-strikes). Worse swing detection than on Wii, but still playable. Dungeons are creative puzzling but lack diversity, visit the same area over and over. 30+ hours length. It’s just not as good as Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, or BoTW.

    As a long time fan of the Legend of Zelda series, original Skyward Sword on the Wii was first one that didn't attract me. The motion controls were strange and unresponsive, and visuals seemed a step back from Wind Waker. Now on Switch, visuals are enhanced to 1080p, and 60 fps. The colors and smooth animations look gorgeous both on tv or handheld. Controls feel much better than they were on Wii, though still not perfect, as they still can lose track in boss fights. But for the most part they feel 1 to 1 motion, and are very fun when using slingshots or bow and arrow types of items. A big bonus, which was one of reasons I gave this version a chance, is that you can skip motion controls entirely and play the game almost as a traditional Zelda game, but losing camera controls, as the right analog becomes dedicated for moving sword. Story is as good as most of the games in the series, and soundtrack is beautiful and powerful. Highly recommend this game for any Legend of Zelda fan, specially for those who skipped it on Wii like I did. It isn't perfect, but it is fun and gorgeous. It might feel a little restricted when compared to Breath of the Wild, but those who played other games in the series will recognize building blocks for free roaming and traversal that became fully fleshed out in Breath of the Wild.

    This is a great game. Many hours of gameplay packed into this one. Dungeons are well laid out and have enjoyable puzzles. My only gripe is the combat controls could be better when playing with the joycons connected but still totally usable. Another great Zelda game

    Great game - nice port to the switch. Probably shouldn’t have been as expensive as it was since it’s an old game but I digress.
