The lights are on
It has been a very long time since I have picked up a Wii remote. After going out to buy this game I had to dust off the console, plug it back in, and find the nunchucks. It took a while to get used to the controls again, what with fives years since the last Legend of Zelda game, so it required some tweaking all over again.
The story is what one expects from a classic Zelda franchise, temples, gaining iconic weapons along the way, fighting bosses, collecting heart containers, rupees, solving puzzles, and saving the every angelic Zelda; but that never dulled the game play. It is a new story line which will keep you playing until the very end, even if the time frame of when this one is supposed to take place in relation to the other games is quite confusing. It has a mixture of the graphics of Twilight Princess and cell shading, and has a bright/colorful element to the screen. The battle actions are well executed and are enjoyable to discover, though a little awkward to execute at first with the Wii remote and nunchuck.
It is sad that we are starting to see the fade of the Wii generation, and its fall from its great expectation to be the next big gaming console. But it will go out with a bang with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
