    CGRundertow THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SKYWARD SWORD for Nintendo Wii Video Game Review Part One


    by CGRundertow

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword from Nintendo for the Nintendo Wii. Skyward Sword is the eighth proper Zelda title released for a home console, which makes its freshness all the more impressive. It's rare to play a game in which the controls actually immerse you into the game's world, but that's what MotionPlus does for Zelda. Sword fights are no longer routine exercises in obligatory button mashing. Each one is an event that requires attention, even strategy. But the most interesting thing about the game is its appearance. Skyward Sword is based on impressionism, an art style that blossomed in the 19th century. The whole idea is you're not necessarily painting an object as much as you're capturing light. This is exactly what Nintendo has accomplished with Skyward Sword. Objects looming in the distance are beautifully rendered in the impressionist style, but as you approach them, they slowly come into focus. Details emerge. The painting begins to move. This video review features video gameplay footage of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
