Official Nintendo Magazine Review: Skyward Sword Scores 98/100

Awhile back we posted that the Official Nintendo Magazine would be the first publication to release a Skyward Sword Review, and today it released as promised. Although we do not have the full details of the review yet, we have received the score and some very interesting quotes. Skyward Sword was able to get a score of 98% out of 100, which is the highest rating any Nintendo Wii game has ever received from ONM! This beats out Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galxy 2, which all received scores of 97%. The 98% review score puts the game at a tie with Ocarina of Time 3D, a remake of which ONM says was the greatest game of all time. To sum up ONM’s review they say…

It’s not something we say lightly, but the Zelda series really has never been this good.

This incredibly high score has gotten me even more pumped for the game. ONM has more to say about continues the regard Skyward Sword quite highly with this statement…

Skyward Sword has a lot of heart, backed up by a lot of brains. It’s an intelligent and captivating adventure that, through sheer scale and diversity of content, variety of location and ingenious and refined use of Wii Motion Plus, never fails to maintain a firm chokehold on your attentions.

Be sure to look out for more updates and the full review, so stay tuned.
