The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Swords * Holiday Guide 2011*

Shopping for a gamer isn’t always easy, with tons of games coming out at the same time it’s hard to find the perfect game.

If you’re looking for a game that has action, a great storyline, great graphics, long game play and is a challenge, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Swords is just that. You play a character named Link, who’s not yet a hero; you help along the way to become a knight, whose mission is to help save his longtime friend Zelda. With the Wii MotionPlus accessory, every movement of Link’s sword matches your motion. If you motion left to right, Link swings from left to right. The precision play control is applied to enemies as well; you actually have to come up with a strategy when battling opponents that actively try to defend against your attacks. It’s a nice change from just sitting in front of the TV press buttons on a regular controller. The Boss battles are more difficult than any other Zelda game; the maps are huge to keep you entertained for hours.

You can choose from the regular game or the 25th Anniversary Bundle that come with the Symphony Concert CD and a Golden Wii Motion control. Games nowadays are $60 to $70 and you’re able to beat them within four days, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Swords is not one of those games, this game will have your gamer entertained for days.
