Skyward Sword Wii Motion Plus Complaints

AustinNovember 19th, 2011 by Austin

Over at GoNintendo, they’ve provided a link to several game reviewers complaining about Skyward Sword’s controls (inside of an otherwise glowing review of the game_ along with a rebuttal to said reviews. The links for both articles can be found below. Basically, the three reviewers in the second link complain that the Wii Motion Plus feature isn’t as great as it’s made out to be. The first reviewer notes that while the controls work most of the time, there are some instances where it will just not cooperate with certain moves that you have to perform. He also complains about having to recalibrate the controller multiple times. The second reviewer is more generous, although he does note that the type of control scheme used feels dated because of its lack of precise camera control used in most modern adventure games. The third and final reviewer states that the inclusion of Wii Motion Plus was the game’s weakest link, and also complained about having to calibrate the controller multiple times.

The person over at GoNintendo, however, claims that he never had to deal with such issues, even going so far as wondering if he was living in an alternate universe from everyone complaining about the controls. He says that the controls always performed to his expectations and that he had no issues with the controls whatsoever.

What do you all think? For those of you that have played the game, who do you agree with? Have you experienced any issues? Are the three complaining just crazy? Leave a comment and let us know!
