Epic Mickey: Camera was the large issue. Its a good game, just not much of a great one
Code of Princess: Lag is a big issue with this one. Its also repetitive
Steel Diver
Harvest Moon: A Tale of Two Towns: This idea could have been amazing, however it just splits the fun up into two.
Scribblenauts Unlimited: Scribblenauts is now way too specific. In the original Scribblenauts you can do plenty. In this one, some of the stuff they ask of you is too specific. I also prefered the mission layout more.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: Its just not my thing. Maybe in the future, I'll come back to the game, but in the meantime it ends up on the disappointed list.
Shantae Risky's Revenge: Boring, a bit generic and the cherry on top to why I think Wayforward is overrated.

Skyward Sword - The controls were HORRIFIC. Seriously, it damn near ruined the game for me. Luckily the story was really good and character development (at least for Groose) was ok. Also, the time trials were pointless, annoying, and felt like a chore to do after the first one. I hate being timed in games. In addition, fighting the Imprisoned like 3-4 times (I can't remember the exact number) was ridiculous and annoying. It was obvious padding on Nintendo's part.

It depends, if you can't stand iffy motion controls seeping into every element of the game (Not an exaggeration), and/or tons of filler, avoid it. If you can overlook that, I would say definitely give it a try, but I would advise you to avoid thinking it's going to be another A Link to the Past, you could be sorely disappointed.

Sure, if you like Zelda games overall. If you ask me, the controls work well, it looks great and is lengthy. Only thing I don't like is the overworld design; that and some of the music is forgettable – though there are some epic tracks to counterbalance. You can get it for cheap anyway, so it's definitively worth a shot.

I'm glad that someone FINALLY says what many people who are disappointed in this game are thinking. The controls were indeed terrible. With a normal controller the game would've been a 7 for me which is still very low for a Zelda game (Zelda OOT = 10, Zelda TP = 9,5, Zelda WW = 9,...) but I can't give it more because of the imprisoned and the dull skyworld. Nintendo was just lazy with this one, no idea what they were thinking. I'm pretty sure that they're gonna make it up with the new zelda :) I think it's going to be something really special :)
