The reason I got this game was because many big game review companies were putting out 10/10 for this game. Maybe I just don't like this genre (this is the first Zelda game I have played), but I just didn't like it as much as most reviewers.
The graphics: This game is not bad to look at, but it just doesn't stand out above any other games I have played. The characters and creatures are animated nicely.
The controls: The controls took me a long time to get used to. However, the sword-swinging with the Wii motion plus is amazing. With my own experience, it responded with little lag and very accurately. Shaking the nunchuck to use a shield bash was also well implemented.
The sound: The music is nice, but it didn't stand out all that much either. I do think that some of links voice clips are quite funny. if you accidentally burn yourself in lava, then you will know what I am talking about.
The gameplay: I found it lacking at some points. Sometimes, quite boring. I would often explore for a very long time with very few enemies to battle. Some of the puzzles had answers that took a very long time for me to figure out. Sometimes I would try looking for a hint online, and then I figured out that the reason why I didn't solve the puzzle was because of a small detail that wasn't very obvious. Battling is fun, and I did enjoy the boss fights.
The story: The story is one of the strong points. I found it (at least the parts I have played through) to be emotional, and the cut scenes are well animated.
Maybe I don't like this genre of games, but make sure to read many reviews to see if you want to play this game.… Expand

In this game, You are Sonic The Hedgehog, running at high speeds through each level. You will speed through 3D sections and traditional 2D sections. The wisps are a nice addition, and collecting them allows you to use them as a power-up. some early wisps you will encounter will be the cyan wisp (turns Sonic into a high speed laser) and yellow wisp (turns Sonic into a drill to explore underground). This whole purpose is executed very well, and it's fast and fun. The graphics are very nice. The backgrounds are bold and colorful. each planet has it's own theme, as you will be seeing a food themed planet with popcorn pits, an alien planet that Eggman has been to recently, a Tropical resort, and others. Cut scenes are usually interaction between Sonic and his two-tailed fox friend Tails, and I got a few laughs from these nicely animates cuts. One of my major complaints about the game was that I think it kind of feels short. Maybe it's because I didn't have a lot to do on the summer holidays, but this game is still HOURS of fun, as you will go back to levels to grab those hidden red rings or after you discovered a new wisp. The multiplayer isn't great, if any one of the two Sonics speed ahead then DEATH WILL HAPPEN *dun dun dun*
I really enjoyed this game. I highly recommend it to any owner of a Wii.… Expand
