@Luna_110 I am loving the art style so far. Way better than Twilight Princess lol

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

I personally loved Skyward Sword. The story was great (not the best ever, but great), the music was phenomenal, one of my favorite boss fights in the series is in the game, some of the puzzles/dungeons really are fun (what is it about boat dungeons in Zelda games? I've loved all of them!), and some of the side quests were genuinely entertaining. My only minor complaint with the game was the motion controls, but they worked for me most of the time. The only movement I really had trouble with was thrusting the sword; this is needed for an enemy at a couple of points in the game and succeeded in prolonging those fights, unfortunately.

Also, the placement of the sword on the screen was sometimes...odd for me. This was more of a quirk though since I'm left-handed. XD

Botw does everything right that the series has been increasingly getting wrongvfor decades.

Seeing the impact of everything I have been vying for years be everything i knew it would be and more has been immensly vindicating.

And the most exciting part l, is despite botw being so great, there is so much room for improvement. But at last, a Zelda thats a Zelda again.

I enjoyed SS quite a bIt, certainly more than tp... But i am more than ready to say goodbye to the zelda themed crystalis in design games. This series has been shackled by design restrictions based around n64 system limitations that havent been necessary for over a decade.

So glad monolithsoft convinced Anouma to move forward. Lol and they wete so worried about pitching it to Shiggy.

I check my save game and it was from 2012. Wow!! Now I downloaded it with a discount from My Nintendo and continue my save data. It is a very fun game. I have only a question The download game from Wii U fixes the bug? If not, no problem for me, I know how to skip it and besides in Wii shop there is the fix data channel.

Me gusta jugar videojuegos. Soy de México. Sorry my english grammar. I love the Virtual Console, party and fighting games too.

Yeah, I'm not gonna lie though that even though I am a vocal critic of many aspects of SS, the world in BOTW is just SO empty. Too much. Even emptier than TP. And no, random Korok seeds placed around does not really populate the map... One thing that was really nice about SS is just how rich and concentrated the world is. Sometimes I feel kinda lazy to pick up and play BOTW because of how empty it is lol. It could be just me, though.

I played Skyward Sword in 2012, it was my second 3D zelda after twilight priness and I loved it. I had left nintendo completely since Playstation 1 till Wii DS.

I have since played Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora's Mask 3D, Wind Waker HD, played Twilight Princess Wii and HD

I replayed Skyward Sword right before Breath of the Wild came out and loved it just as much.

I ranked the 3D games
Skyward Sword
Twilight Princess
Wind Waker
Ocarina of Time
Majoras Mask

I am not sure where to rank Breath of the Wild yet but I feel it is so different it almost deserves its own ranking.

I did occasionally have some difficulty with the motion control but they were excellent and added so much fun and depth to the combat. Skyward sword definitely has the best combat, most satisfying and fun.

I think Skyward Sword has the best dungeons. Its very refreshing to break from the 1 item 1 dungeon template where you get items between dungeons and you use all your items to overcome puzzles constantly.

I think Skyward sword has the best characters....the only game where I actually cared about Zelda as a character, Ghirahim and Groose were awesome as were the sidequests in Skyloft

I liked how the overworld in Skyward Sword constantly challenges you. To me this makes the game constantly fun compared to other games where the overworld is less thrilling than the dungeons.

I think skwyard sword has the best bosses. This is partially because the combat is the best but the bosses and the mini bosses are more fun and more challenging and more creative in my view than in other 3D zeldas.

Breath of the Wild is a great game too but these are more the categories I rank Zelda games by. Skyward Sword blows it out of the water for me and is my most enjoyable 3D zelda. Breath of the Wild is an entirely different type of game I feel.

@blaisedinsd I find Zelda to be a great character in Spirit Tracks as well; have you played it?

@LegendOfPokemon I actually played Spirit Tracks before I played Wind Waker but after I played Phantom Hourglass. It's the same Zelda/Tetra in all 3 games right? I remember being a bit confused not knowing the background from Windwaker. The two DS games blur together in my mind....both great games that were very similar.

@blaisedinsd The Zelda in Spirit Tracks is Tetra's descendant; that game takes place 100 years after WW/PH.

Phantom Hourglass actually gives you all the information you need to know about Wind Waker in the intro video.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

Precisely. It does a nice job of recapping what happened in WW without spoiling everything.

I decided to try again to finish this game (even purchased the digital guide on My Nintendo), just because I want to see the story. However I am running into the same issues with Motion Plus controls that made me stop before and was hoping someone had some practical advice (really didn't want to scroll through 98 pages of posts). I feel like I am spending more time fighting with the controls than playing the game (beetle thing that is required so much right now being the most difficult, not telegraphing move being just as difficult at times).

I've sort of figured out that twisting the controller is more productive than turning, but struggling to find something effective past that.

I recall always twisting the controller instead of turning it for the Beetle. It's a fun item, but I do agree that controlling it could be a bit frustrating at times. Not to where I wanted to stop playing the game though.
