First, can you make a walkthrough for Skyward Sword? It's my favorite Zelda game out of the series, and in previous blog posts you wrote you had bought a copy already.

It was made for the Wii, and required a WiiMotion+ controller with a joystick. People's main gripes with the game were for the motion control system-you swing the controller and Link swings his sword. But I think those people never played the game, or at least in full. It is very, VERY well done and put into the gameplay so seamlessly you don't really notice after a while.

People's other main gripe is with the beginning of the game. It has a lot of cutscenes and is a little bit of a drag, taking a long while to actually make it into the world and gameplay. The reason being was this game was made the commemorate the 25th anniversary of the series, and was made to be the beginning of the Zelda timeline. In comparison to the rest of the game, the opening is arguably only what is needed and a tolerable length.

The game is oh so long, and not in a bad way. It has a great storyline and some great game mechanics throughout the story (i.e., beetle you drive, stones that when hit send the area around it back in time.) It has a great sidequest system in place, where the they all are technically optional, but are fun and memorable.

It is on my top ten Zelda games, and would love watching your walkthrough of it. It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
