The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD: So are the international ratings

The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will also be available for Nintendo Switch on July 16. In the run-up to publication, the tests were also shared with the international press on the Internet. We give you an overview of the ratings for the new edition of the Wii title from 2011.

So far, the reviews for the game have been positive almost everywhere. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD also achieved a total of 8 out of 10 points in our test by PC Games. Above all, the successful button control that Nintendo had to create for the new edition is praised. But the motion control works much more precisely than with the Wii remote control of the time. There is some criticism for an annoying amiibo payment barrier and the missed chance to add some new content to the game. The average rating on Metacritic is currently 82 out of 100 points. Below we have shared more impressions from the tests of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD in the test overview

VGC - 100

While even an excellent remaster such as this can't make Skyward Sword a perfect Zelda game, this is such a drastically improved version of one of the most overlooked entries in the series, that Switch owners simply mustn't overlook a second time around.

God is a Geek - 95

Skyward Sword HD has made a fool of me, and really, I am just so happy I gave it another chance. This is the best version of a truly landmark game.

Nintendo Life - 90

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD introduces a raft of technical improvements and quality of life updates that reinvigorate and revitalize this ten-year-old game. With motion controls more precise than ever before, an alternate button control scheme that totally works, crisp HD graphics, smooth 60fps gameplay and a bothersome sidekick who's been streamlined into something altogether more useful, this really does feel like Skyward Sword as it was meant to be experienced. Yes, the locking off of instant travel behind the official amiibo is a misstep, but beyond this one issue what's here is a sublime experience, a technical triumph and an absolute must-play for Switch owners and Zelda fans.

GamesRadar - 80

Skyward Sword HD gives one of the most misunderstood Legend of Zelda games a second chance. It's an under-appreciated gem, one that finds the space to really breathe with a more reliable and relaxing method of control embedded within it. Skyward Sword has its fair share of problems, but it makes up for many of them in moments of true brilliance and defiance against established series conventions. Say what you will about Skyward Sword, but it's good to be out on an authored adventure with Link again - saving Hyrule one inventive dungeon and challenging boss battle at a time.

Game Informer - 80

In some ways, Skyward Sword was the end of an era. It follows the pattern Nintendo established back in 1998 with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and it was the last game in the series before Nintendo reconceived the series with Breath of the Wild. In some ways, Skyward Sword perfects Ocarina's template, but that formula also feels well-worn and stuffed with unnecessary junk. Despite all the ways Nintendo updated this package, Skyward Sword remains far from my favorite entry in the series, but this is clearly the best way to play this blemished gem.

GameSpot - 70

The various quality-of-life tweaks that Nintendo has implemented here, welcome as they are, don't fix Skyward Sword's biggest issues, and it remains the most uneven 3D entry in the Zelda series. Even so, the improvements in this Switch remaster make the overall experience more enjoyable, and the characteristic Zelda magic ultimately outshines the game's faults.

We will gradually add more ratings to the news.
