Sticksboi05 Posted November 8, 2011 Share Posted November 8, 2011 http://wii.ign.com/articles/121/1211616p1.html Ask people which is their favourite Zelda game, and you'll almost always get the same answer. There will always be the odd Wind Waker or Majora's Mask maverick in there, but the overwhelming majority will tell you that it's Ocarina of Time. It doesn't matter whether they're 16 or 35. Ocarina of Time's shadow looms so large over every later Zelda game that they've had to work extremely hard to distinguish themselves; Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks did it with that cartoonish art style, where Twilight Princess made a slightly less confident foray into novelty with its wolfish Link. After this year, though, there's a serious chance that answer is going to change. I've spent enough time with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword now to realise that this may very well be the best Zelda game ever made. There's no aspect of series tradition that hasn't been revisited and reassessed, and the way that it uses motion control is so effortless and enjoyable that it makes you really mourn for what the Wii could have done if more developers had only made the effort. It's more than that, though. It's got a feel about it, a kind of magic, that only the best games have. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a serious contender for Ocarina of Time's crown, and here are the reasons why. ... This is pretty much the only reason my Wii still remains in my house. I got it for Smash Bros/Mario/Zelda. The term "better than Ocarina of Time" is almost sacrilegious in gaming. I am very excited for this. And I know many think A Link to the Past is the best Zelda game ever. Here are reviews so far for Skyward Sword...
