Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword - Controls
Zelda Rant Skyward Sword
Zelda is Zelda, and its fans want Zelda to innovate in its own ways, not by copying other games. One of these ways is the motion controls. I'm talking about story or anything else, just the items and the controls.
A few people seem to have a real hard time with the controls, and I can't understand why people who consider themselves to be serious gamers have these issues. There are two things that can fix it.
The first, is adjust your sensor bar. I've noticed in my experiments that it seems more responsive when it is placed above the TV. Make sure it isn't askew and is centered perfectly on top of the TV.
The second is something I've noticed a few people doing, when calibrating the Wii Motion Plus, make sure you place it buttons down. I've had a few friends calibrating it wrong and it made for an unpleasant experience. Now that they have all fixed the issue, every single one of them loves the controls.
Fixing those issues makes things a lot easier.
Another thing I've noticed is people like to talk about the split-second delay from swinging your arm, to when Link swings his arm. I've noticed that this is only really visible when watching someone play, when playing by yourself this isn't noticeable, unless you are swinging your arms like a madman.
Then there are the flight controls with the Loftwing and the Beetle, they take a little bit to get used too. However, by being gentle and by making gentle tilts, controlling them isn't really an issue. They have simple controls and are actually quite intuitive.
Aiming with the bow and slingshot, this can be corrected by recentering the cursor, other than that there really aren't any issues with it.
One of the best examples I can give on how intuitive the controls are is when my boyfriend played it. My boyfriend doesn't have much experience with adventure games, this is actually his first Zelda game. The controls were easy for him to pick up and learn. No issues at all.
How is it someone with limited game experience is having less difficulty than people who call themselves hardcore gamers? Honestly, I don't get this. Someone want to help me understand it?
