'The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword' for Nintendo Wii


I was worried when I first saw the color scheme of Zelda's latest entry. The character and world designs are more realistic in shape than the cell shaded games from the past few years but the color palette is brighter and cheerier than "Ocarina" or "Twilight Princess." When you are playing, you hardly notice these things. In fact, it's often for the better, as each item is rendered with more detail when fully illuminated and accented with color. Compared to some of the darker stages of Zelda past, this is refreshing, Link feels very at home in a vibrant world.

The bottom line? It's finally time to take your Wii out of storage. While Nintendo may be winding down its famed home console in preparation for next year's WiiU, there are still upward of 75 million Wii systems in homes around the world. And each and every one of them absolutely needs a copy of "Skyward Sword."
