It's not a bad game, it is is by far the worst Zelda game I've ever played. Nintendo must think so to because it probably gave them a wake up call that led to the awesomeness that is Breath of the Wild.

To be brutally honest, the only reason Skyward Sword got rated so high is because it's a Zelda game. Take about 20 points or so from the MC score and you'll get an accurate rating.

That's a bit harsh. While I do think being a Zelda title boosted its popularity and possibly ratings I don't know about by 20 metacritic points. More like 5, maybe10.
I like games and anime. My favorite games include the following: Mother 1-3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Cross, Zelda LA-ALttP-OoT-MM-ALBW, and Super Smash Bros.

No. It's sitting at a 93. 73 is about right for a game like Skyward Sword. It's better than your average game, but it's not a great game by any means.

as for backtracking complaints and lack of overworld complaints let me ask you
what do you do in an open world?

do you back track through an open world?

Yeah, but you don't always have to backtrack, or even backtrack the same way. People don't like Skyward Sword. That's just how it is.


huh?
that's a weird response

It is a good game, but worst Zelda game by LoZ standards

Bad controls, no world exploration
Unresponsive controls
Story is as weak as BotW
Awkward control animation
Not much to do past main quest
Game would be 5x better without the forced motion controls

This game was hyped as much as BotW, 10 across the board and praised to be the best LoZ game ever since OOT, issue is....it wasn't, and the whole half the fans loving it is not true, as once the hyped died, not alot of people remembered anything special about this game, over time no one will even understand how it got 10 across the board

Again it's not a bad game, but the noise it made when it was released was kinda dump, 7.5/10 game

Good story and good music. The controls are ass though, which is unfortunate

Good in my opinion. A better question is how could someone play every other zelda and just not want to try the one they havent played?
