First time playing Skyward.

15 hours in. Just lost my temper with the Earth Temple boss because of the Rube Goldberg clusterFK control scheme.😠😠😭 There's way too much pressure; run and throw bombs, run and thow bombs, run out of bombs, frantically run & try to pick up more bombs.

I'm still going to keep playing another day, after I've cooled down. They are cool dungeons. It would be cool if they rebuilt the game in botw engine. It'll never happen, but it would be cool. But I guess that still won't solve the directional sword swipe control scheme.

Still a great zelda game in there, but dang.

@WoomyNNYes
For whatever reason I've gotten used to the controls, but I do agree BotW scheme would be most comfortable for most people. The thing I had the hardest time adjusting to was the picking up and throwing/rolling of objects like bombs. It took me quite some time to get into that control flow, for sure.

Only issue I'm having with controls is the stupid L button (well, and trying to do those spin attacks/finishing blows), no idea if it's the game or the controller. But sometimes the L button won't work for a second and I keep drawing my sword whenever I'm looking around. >.<

Ok, so like 30 hours in... the repetition is starting to get ridiculous. One word: tadtones.

Ugh.

I don't know. Some of these repetitive parts are starting to feel like the devs were told to pad more time into the game.

Why only the three areas on the surface? It's not like earlier 3D Zeldas didn't have equally large (or even larger) worlds and more varied biomes. Ocarina had a connected feel and was full of fairly large and detailed places, and that was on cartridge storage for crying out loud.

I think I'm close to the end, so I'll have my final thoughts I'm sure, but as of this moment, Skyward Sword is FANTASTIC with its dungeons and motion-based platforming and puzzles, but the surface areas and the tasks are some of the weakest I've experienced in a Zelda game.

The sky and Skyloft are fine. They're pretty awesome. lol

I didn’t find the tadtones section to be annoying at all. I quite liked having a big open swimming pool.

@Eel
Probably my least favorite part so far. Felt like filler to me.

I enjoyed the initial explorations of each area. I enjoyed the trials. I enjoyed finding the new areas after unlocking the trial powers. But now this third (or even 4th, kind of) time around each area is really starting to annoy me.

@WoomyNNYes Today, I did a lot better with the Earth Temple boss.

18 hours in, I discover how to make it night in the game.🤪

This monster, "Betreaux". That name kinda looks like "betray you".🤔

I never liked the musical notes thing either, tears were fine. Ugh, I'm about to do the flooded Faron part too...

I mean, they would be annoying if you had a time limit, had to do them in strict order, or something silly like that, but it’s pretty chill. Specially with button controls where swimming is actually easy to control.

I dunno, I never liked finding that much stuff all at once. >.>

Then you get to the last one and can never find it for some reason, so you spend an eternity trying to find it or something. lol

Fi can give you their general direction if you go out of the water and dowse for them.

It’s a faster way to find the last few.

I managed to beat Scaldera at the first attempt. Lucky me.

It did involve blowing myself up a few times though. They've managed to map that aspect of the game to the button controls fairly accurately, if nothing else.

Completed it after a two weeks, was as good as I remember it, used Motion controls (well most of the way, especially after i found out you can press Y button at anytime to reset)

I liked the way they switched up the different areas (ie forest underwater, volcano exploding and loosing gear)

But shame there wasnt more dungeons to it, and Demise, sorry he should have left Ghirahim to kick you ass, he was harder than Demise

@Eel
Yea, thank goodness it didn't have a time limit. I did use the dowsing for the last few groups.

It still just came across as uninspired to me. Like they ran out of ideas and were just like, "Uh... we can... make it underwater this time?" lol

I found the Lanayru song much better. It was a new area, for starters (even though pretty small), and even though it was essentially just a combat/movement gauntlet, it had that fun little puzzle at the end to kind of check if you've been paying attention to some of the story.

@NinChocolate That challenge looks like a scam to me. Unless someone knows another secret that lets you know exactly where all the good gems are without digging, it appears to be a waste of money & time.

That system of knowing the number of bad holes around each color gem, it's not knowledge that guarantees you'll win more money than the fee to play. I see no reason to play the game unless you like losing your money.

Is the special prize for the bamboo cutting game a piece of heart? I promised myself I wasn't going to look anything up, and I consider asking people on this forum basically like asking someone in real life, so it doesn't count lol
