Yeah 25-30 seems unrealistic unless it already know what to do for every step of the game. I haven't had to redo much of anything and I'm at 30 already.

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

For those of you who have finished the game, I need a little help.

Spoiler:
I am having a serious problem fighting the Demise at the end. The first part of the fight is no problem, but the second part where you are supposed to charge a skyward strike and hit him, I can not get Link to charge the strike. I hold the controller over my head, straight up and Link will not charge the skyward strike. He just stands there and then I get hit by the Demise. Rinse and repeat. I don't know if it's a glitch at the end as I haven't had much problem throughout the game charging the strike, but here at the end it just sits there. Any help?

Spoiler:
You can't charge a Skyward Strike because the sky is blocked (or something like that) You just have to do a shield parry and counter attack. Sometimes you can charge your sword with the lightning that strikes down randomly during the fight, but like I said, it's random.

Seriously, there's no Ganon or Hyrule at all? Ugh.

LOL I just started playing, and that's where I got to, too. I was wandering around forever trying to find those **** that stole my bird.

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Finally finished this today after putting it down in January before the Song of the Hero part. Final boss fight was a bitch - the controls are just awful.

Wasn't the worst Zelda game but I'll never play it again because of the motion controls. I'm all for a challenge but the controls and camera just work against you too much.

If the eventual Wii U Zelda game incorporates motion control they can keep it.

Strange, I had no issues at all.

Nintendo has hinted that the next Zelda won't use motion controls at all. Supposedly a lot of people only played through half of the game, and Nintendo wants as many people as possible to get to the end.

Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The last time I played was a month ago and I'm at the very end fighting the argyle guy (I forget his name)... the controls are wonky, but I'll get through it.

I love the game (except for battles like these).

Sounds about right. I gave Twilight Princess about 10 hours and Skyward Sword about 3. 90% of the reason was motion controls, the other 10% (the graphic whore part of me) is that they are just ugly games in an era of HD.

Ironically, I put in 60+ hours into Okami. I had some initial motion problems with that one, but overcame them to enjoy it greatly. Then again, Okami is 10x the Zelda game than any Zelda since Wind Waker.

The Zelda formula is beyond stale at this point. Of course I'm assuming Skyward Sword brought minimal changes to the franchise since the motion prevented me from enjoying it.

What's funny is I finished this one but I didn't get 10% through Twilight Princess. On a 61" DLP, just ugly ugly ugly. I wanted to finish that one too since it seemed more unique that the previous Zeldas. But playing as the wolf + motion controls was just a total deterrent to finishing the game.

My biggest problems with the end battle controls were A) I was holding my sword up the whole frickin' time and at best would get a Skyward Strike charged maybe 35% of the time. And then when it was time for fatal blow it took me about 8 times over two different attempts to finally do it right.

I guess the one big change this time is

Maybe it was my sensor bar placement - I don't know. The room was fairly dark but with ambient lighting from behind the display. I seriously almost put the Wiimote through my display screen when I died on the first attempt after having tried to the fatal blow 4 times and failed because the controls wouldn't respond to the movement.

There are also a lot of times throughout the game where the camera just readjusts itself to a semi-side view when I've just centered it to prepare for a jump. Needless to say I wind up plummeting after that happens.

I had that same problem, but it was because the damn time to do it in is so short and you have to be a certain distance from him.

I wound up reading you shouldn't even try to do it the first couple of times because he gets up too quick. But after about the 7th time of knocking him down and not completing the move only to die, I was quite forlorn (re:fucking pissed).

I did have fun making it to the bottom of the pit before hand. My arm was tired after that.
