    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.

    Classic wii Zelda brought to the Switch

    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 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.

    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!

    Skyward Sword was a bold title in the Zelda franchise, in some ways even more than Breath of the Wild. The motion controls left a lot to be desired for players unused to such a setup, and the original Wii version's lack of alternatives meant that you either put up with the controls, or skip the title entirely. Skyward Sword HD features a number of quality of life improvements over the original. Not only do you now have the option to play entirely with just a controller, the game's previously hand-holding-heavy elements have been greatly alleviated. The companion Fi is much less chatty and intrusive during gameplay, allowing players new and old to enjoy their adventure with less interruptions than what was seen in the 2011 Wii version. The Joy-con motion controls are a blast to use, though do expect some occasional input hiccups if you swing too wildly. Story, graphics, and music are some of the best seen in the series, all brought to life with greater clarity for this updated rerelease.

    Remastered to Perfection

    As a long-time Legend of Zelda fan, I was completely devastated with the original release of the game. The forced use of Wii motion controls made it difficult to progress in the game, forcing me to hang up the game without even clearing the first dungeon. I was reluctant at first to try the Skyward Sword remaster, but caved as we still have another year before the Sequel to Breath of the Wild. However, I was quickly blown away by how beautiful and engaging Skyward Sword is! With revamped controls, the game felt smooth like butter and I was finally able to witness the origin story of the heroes. The game is still challenging, but not because of flawed controls and offers a stunning setting and exciting adventure.

    Not the best Zelda, still a great game

    Skyward Sword is not my favorite Zelda game. Of all the 3D ones, it might actually be my least favorite. But it is still a terrific game and this HD remaster is a nice upgrade over the original Wii version. The full HD, 60 frames per second, new control options, and quality of life improvements make it almost feel like a brand new game. If you've never played it, I think it's worth buying at full price. As someone with a still functioning Wii, I waited and got it at $40. Skyward Sword has gotten a lot of hate over the years but I think this remaster shows it in its best light and will remind people that a "bad" Zelda game is still amazing in its own right.

    I don't recall playing this when it came out for the Wii so was really excited to give it a shot. I played with the controller not motion controls and found it really easy and intuitive. This is definitely a different experience than BOTW which a much more linear path of progression. While the world felt a little small, the dungeons were interesting and engaging without ever being too difficult. If you like Zelda you'll love this, if you want open world it's probably not your thing.

    Enjoyable Zelda Classic brought to the Switch

    This is actually a rerelease of the classic Wii game, and it is a very good looking one at that. Don’t expect Breat of the Wild level graphics, but it has been upcoverted to a higher resolution. Zelda is always the place to go for fun, adventurous gameplay, and while it feels a little older when compared to the newest Main Zelda game, it is still a fun ride. I’d tend to stay away from the motion controls, but it is a great option to have.

    As a Zelda fanatic, I buy anything Nintendo pumps out, but I did enjoy playing this game again. Constant 60fps and HD upgraded graphics made this game very easy on the eyes but not all textures were polished as well as others. As for controls, they're fine except selecting and pulling out your items from the bag will get you frustrated in a boss fight since you have to let go of the control stick to pull out your selected item. 2nd dungeon boss was really annoying due to this and takes some practice getting acclimated. No other real complaints here, though I will note I did not use the skyward sword amibo during my playthrough, and it really doesn't effect the game play much.

    Beautiful HD Remake

    As a Zelda fan, I was so excited to get this remake was soon as it was released. I recently went back to play Skyward Sword on my Wii U, but the graphics were so pixelated that the painted art style was difficult to enjoy. Now, having the HD visuals updated, it is really a beautiful game to play on a large screen new TV. Both of the new controls are awesome to play with! The Switch Joy-Cons are great to use motion for the sword. But, I have now been trying to use the controller grip, as well as my Pro Controller. If you don't use motion, you can use the right joystick to control the sword, but also ZR allows you to control the camera when not fighting. The story in this game is possibly my favorite out of all the Zelda series. I highly recommend getting this HD Remake!

    I have played Breath of the Wild, Majoras Mask, Ocarina of time, Twilight princess, and many more. This is by far my favorite Legend of Zelda game. Now this is all subjective but I think this game is the best legend of Zelda game out there. Also this remaster has some good quality of life changes and it is definitely worth the price tag. Highly Recommend.
