So I finally got around to finish Skyward Sword. Ironic that it took me so long since I got it like five days earlier than the whole of America and still three days earlier than the rest of Europe but a little while before the boss my interest just totally declined. So it collected metaphoric dust for a few months in my Wii until I picked it up again today.
First of all: When I finished off Demise I was like, what, seriously? That's it??? THAT was the epic boss of the game? I mean okay, he does indeed look pretty cool (like a weird mixture of Nosferatu Zodd from Berserk and Akuma from Street Fighter xD) but it's like they squeezed all the coolness that was missing from the rest of the bosses into this one instead of spreading it a bit more equally. And then he was easy as sh*t. I thought I didn't see correctly when the credits started because I kept hoping he'd jump out at me again so I could fight some more. But nothing.
And then the credits themselves, which started out very nicely with the retelling of Zelda's part of the story, became rather crappy through very choppy "camerawork".
All in all the game was a huge disappointment. Well okay, I shouldn't be all too hard on it. There were parts I really enjoyed like the overall dungeon design for instance. The Ancient Cistern alone was epic to no end and the same goes for both Fire Dungeons.
I also really liked the Ancient Harbour Area with the Skipper's Retreat etc. The atmosphere there was beyond awesome, I've rarely experienced such a sad and melancholic atmosphere in a game. The great music was the main thing that made this area into what it is.
Then the Silent Realms. Now THAT was cool stuff. I think I almost pissed my pants in the first one when the Guardians started to come for me and the light flared all threateningly.
But leaving all that aside, I don't have any special memories of the game. It's like it felt too bland to leave a big impression.
Apart from the giant annoyance that is Fi.
Seriously the game takes you for a complete retard. Not only because of Fi, also because of too many explanations in general. I mean wtf, so Ghirahim explains his ultimate move the last time you affront him so you know exactly how to avoid it??? That's a joke, right? /sad laugh
For me Skyward Sword does and probably always will rank lowest of all 3D Zeldas and even lower than some 2D ones.
I'm sorry if anyone disagrees with me, it's just my own opinion. If you disagree, well that's fine, I'll accept it, so please also accept my opinion and don't get rude.
