Full review of Skyward Sword

Okay, continuing with the last review, I have since finished Skyward Sword and started in on Hero Mode. I have to say, the game is amazing, and I definitely recommend it. The main quest, which is amazing enough isn't even half of the whole game! Like the original Zelda, Ocarina of Time, and Wind Waker before it, it includes a masterquest, but unlike OoT or TLZ, the world is not rearranged or flipped.
The enemies DO do twice as much damage AND you can't get hearts by going to a flower.
Occasionally you can get them by killing enemies and slashing pots, grass, etc if you have the heart medal. You can only use potions, sleep, or sitting on a stool, seat, bench, or stump.
This game is a must buy for the Wii.
And now to mention something I found while browsing the internet. One other critic I found was saying they needed to include classic controller or gamecube support. My question is, how they would implement the control? With the C-Stick for the sword? How would you stab? Yeah, I digress, there is nothing wrong with the Motion+, but  you do need to get the Wii Remote+, not the Motion+ addon for a better response out of the controller. If the motion controls seem off, you will need to use the 1 menu and use the "Calibrate Motion Plus" button.Iif you avoid the Lanayru gorge until after you finish the other two song quests you can avoid the game killing bug, but then that's what the Skyward Sword Save Update channel is for isn't it? Or you could just finish the hylian shield quest and the song quest and not talk to the goron in the gorge again until you finish the other two.
All in all, there is nothing wrong with this game that nintendo has not fixed and there is everything right with it! Go out and buy this game, you won't regret it! Skyward Sword is simply massive, intuitive, and amazing!
