Is there not a function to review games? I am playing for the very first time my copy of Skyward Sword for the Switch, which i never got to play on the Wii because I didnt have the Wii + controller and wanted to do a long review of it, also for other games as well. I thought awhile ago there was review functions, but if their is i can't find them anymore

We don't really allow user reviews here. And Nintendo doesn't have any way to offer them via the eShop either.

Feel free to share your opinions here, but don't make it look, like, you're writing an article or something.

I swear this game is just run and do this annoying thing then go and do this annoying thing. I'm just watching an LP for the cutscense. The tadpoles crap has me fed up. This isn't fun

@Thaswizz Some users write their own reviews and impressions in the Games You Recently Beat? thread in the General forum, but that's about the extent of it here. Not as attention-grabbing as some avenues out there, but better than nothing. You can also rate games in the database here, but it's on a 1-10 scale. No 7.5s or anything like that other than the math the site uses to average out the scores.

@Tyranexx Okay thank you, I wrote some reviews back on game trailer and had few ppl tell me I should do more, and had little free time thought I may do one for Zelda since it’s fresh to me for first time.

@Thaswizz No problem! Have you considered starting your own gaming blog where you can write reviews? It would probably make for a fun side hobby if writing reviews are something you enjoy doing.

@MarioBrickLayer id say I agree with you sort of. I feel there are some redeeming qualities of this game(unlike BOTW) however there's a lot of issues with it from my view. Its almoat.limw the used the Zelda formula so much here to force Nintendo to let them break free of it in BOTW..I mean it's grab these 3 things then these 3 flames then go get these 3 song notes from three dragons then grab 3 pieces of this and three silent realms 3 Imprisoned fights 3 Ghirahim fights
.

I mean come on already. And the lack of exploration available in an overworked has made me appreciate for first time ever an element of BOTW

I just finished the game and I am just super surprised how good the game was!
I don't have the nostalgia in my favor as the only Zelda's I played are the Switch ones which amounts to BotW (amazing!) and Link's Awakening remake (okay) but I am blown away by the ingenuity and playfulness of the design and puzzles! I even learned to... like is a strong word... be fine with the controls even though I think each control scheme has it's strengths and weaknesses. Oh and screw The Imprisoned! That's the only boss fight I considered true garbage.
Groose is the man!
I expected okayish game but I am sincerely blown away by how good it is! But also I acknowledge the game does not do anything very new except the (poorly working) motion controls and even by 2011 standards I think it's just a well made but not groundbreaking game. (i.e. it does not really do anything different than other action-adventures such as Prince of Persia trilogy).

Still super happy for the HD Switch version as I would never play it otherwise.

@damien33ad I see what you mean, but I think the games are very different. To me Skyward Sword is a beautifully told tale (or a legend, if you wish) but I do not actually want to explore in-depth it's world and characters - it is finite and ends when it ends and that's it. BotW for me is the exact opposite - I couldn't actually care less about defeating Ganon or advancing the story - I just wanted to explore every nook and cranny and live in the Hyrule. I feel like each game scratches completely different itch.

I have an issue. I can’t link to draw the circle on the door to open it. I talked to the guy at the top of the tree, and went to the door at the bottom of the Forrest and all it keeps saying is this door is sealed shut. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it. I’m playing the switch version

@Scottyg312 have you gone look for the complete symbol somewhere else in the forest? The game might expect you to find it before letting you open the door.

Thanks. For some reason it didn’t register talking to the guy at the top of the tree. I went back up and shot him with the sling shot for the second time and it finally worked. I was close to breaking something lol.

@Tyranexx I have thought about that , but I don’t have much to offer aside from text reviews cause my computer broke which I haven’t replaced. Just don’t have a lot of newer devices , but I do love reviewing games because I like deep diving into it all, audio , gameplay , inspiration just everything

@Thaswizz Hmm....Can't really help you there outside of text reviews that some people do in places like Metacritic. I've also done small shorthand ones on Amazon for games I've purchased and beaten, but that's in the same vein. I do hope you find a place that will feature some of your work. Makes me wonder if this site would benefit from the occasional guest review.

Finally did it, my two cents are that it’s amazing for the first half to two thirds (10/10), then quickly falls to a 6 or 7 for the remainder (except for maybe some thrilling boss fights). I now get what people mean when they say it’s repetitive and, my least favorite part of the game, fetch quests with no end (go get this and you can have that, oh thanks for bring that back, but now I need this, oh yes and this. Ok your all done! But now get this for me. Oh yes, I have two brothers that need you get get something for them, too). I did enjoy the motion controls tho, but I was never very good at getting skyward strikes to work when I really needed them.
