Playing Skyward Sword with an Xbox 360 Controller?

Over the past few months there have been many comments, praises, and complaints made of the motion control scheme of Skyward Sword. But now a few clever individuals managed to find a way to play the game on their PCs using an Xbox 360 controller. Youtube members Raullink and Adczooropa give us a look at the various controls during gameplay with the 360 controller and show exactly how well it performs. They have provided videos showing the controls during the Bird Ceremony minigame and the first fight with Ghirahim. Jump inside to check it out.

Wow, I have actually been waiting for something like this for a while, I’m amazed that someone actually pulled it off. And it works out so well too. I have made some comments of my own about the motion controls of Skyward Sword in the past. They are fun and add a new dynamic to the game but sometimes I just want to come home turn on the Wii and play the game and not swing my wiimote around my livingroom for a while.

So what do you think? Did you like the video? Want to try it for yourself? Let us know in the comments below.
