SOPA? How about SOPA-THETIC.
Anyone else notice that Tentalus from Skyward Sword looks kinda exactly like a cross between Boo's costume from Monster's Inc. and Mike Wazowski?
Just beat Skyward Sword
Well, I finally beat Skyward Sword (Yeah, I know, I started late lol) and I can say that, for many reasons, I didn’t enjoy nearly as much as I did Twilight Princess.
- Glitchy controls- I don’t know if this happened to everyone but VERY frequently I would have problems with the nunchuck all of a sudden going in one direction without me even touching the control stick (I had to reconnect it repeatedly). I even switched it w/ a friend’s and the problem persisted. Also, the wii motion plus remote worked perfectly with the wii menu but once I started playing the game, the arrow would act glitchy and sometimes point to places I didn’t point (using the bow and arrow was a pain). I hardly ever had problems with the controls in TP.
- The bosses were easier for me- I remember the bosses being way harder in TP and sometimes taking several tries to beat. Most of the bosses in SS didn’t require a lot of intuitive thinking to figure out how to beat them and the final SS boss only took me one try to beat
- The dungeons were easier to go through- TP’s dungeons required A LOT more intuitive thinking for me to analyze my surroundings and use the items I had to figure a way out, which I loved.
- Twilight Princess was the 1st legitimate Zelda game I played (if you don’t count the Super Smash Bros. series) therefore I wasn’t used to the general layout of Zelda games, which is partly why I remember it as being much harder. When playing SS, I felt like I was mostly just going through the motions.
- Fi and other people were basically holding my hand through every obstacle- I don’t like how SS included so many easy hints and tips. I love tackling a good challenge without help!
- I kinda missed the more somber atmosphere and plot line of TP. Although SS’s cool plot line at times blew my mind, I could see some holes in the story.
Although I have these complaints (and more) about Skyward Sword, I did have fun! Twilight Princess set the bar very high for future Wii (and beyond) Zelda games. In my opinion, Skyward Sword just didn’t set it higher.
