THE LEG­END OF ZELDA: SKY­WARD SWORD (M)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Wii, $99.95 ★★★★ Sky­ward Sword is noth­ing if not an ar­che­typal Zelda game. As al­ways, it cen­tres on an elfish boy who has a great des­tiny thrust upon him. He must leave his home to ex­plore a mys­te­ri­ous, dan­ger­ous land. Per­haps the big­gest changes from Zelda past are the im­pres­sion­ist-in­spired vi­su­als and the ex­cel­lent use of mo­tion con­trols. The chal­lenge is per­fectly pitched, evolv­ing clev­erly as skills are learnt and tools ac­quired, but its am­bi­tion feels a lit­tle tem­pered by tra­di­tion. Out now.
