Q: Is this a lot like BOTW?

submitted by Mcaf - 2 years ago
  • A: This isn’t like botw due to how linear of a legend of Zelda game this is. Skyward sword is more of a traditional legend of Zelda game with dungeons and quests. The person who had previously answered your question does not know what they are talking about. Skyward sword is the prequel to all of the legend of Zelda games it’s the first game chronologically and it was released in 2011 November 23rd. if your looking for a game like botw this is not anything like it because it’s a traditional legend of Zelda game. There are some Similarities like shield durability and upgrades and trials but botw interesting enough took most of its inspiration from skyward sword. I won’t get into depth because I want you to enjoy this game without knowing anything before playing it and I recommend you play this game because it’s one of the best 3D Zelda games. The person who had previously answered your question had incorrect information to the subject of your question. I hope you enjoy skyward sword if you do end up buying it and I hope you found this helpful.

  • A: No, Breath of the Wild was an all-new Zelda adventure developed for the Nintendo Switch. BotW is an open world exploration/strategy/RPG hybrid. Skyward Sword is more like a traditional Zelda game. It was the sequel to Twilight Princess and was released in 2012. You start on an island in the sky, you use a bird partner to go to the lower world, you pick points to descend to on a map. Zelda goes missing. You must find her. It's a decent Zelda game, but no, it's nothing like BotW. There's no crafting. There's no weapon durability. There's no scaling any surface you want to as long as you have the stamina. There are road blocks in place and puzzles and temples that have to be overcome in the correct order to advance the story, you can't just cut to wherever you want, or go and defeat the final boss as soon as you wake up. If you buy this hoping it will be like BotW, you will be disappointed.

If you play this, do not compare it to Breath of the Wild. This game is fun, but it feels much less complex and easier than Breath of the Wild. The graphics lack in comparison and so does the story. I always love Zelda games though and it kept me entertained throughout play.

This game is amazing! definitely one of my favorites!! I'm so glad that Nintendo remastered it for the Switch! It's as good as I remember it from 10 years ago but now portable in my hands which is super cool!! One of the best game soundtracks as well!!

I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a follow-up to Breath of the Wild. this game is a remaster of the previous game in the series, and BotW vastly changed the formula. Skyward Sword displays a more linear story/world progression. it had mixed reception on release due to mandatory motion controls, but the remaster adds the option to use a traditional controller. The dialogue is sped up from the original release, which is a welcome change. There are some great side characters and villains in this game, and it does a solid job at being the origin story for the Legend of Zelda timeline.

I knew that this game would be different from BOTW, but I was excited for new gameplay and a new story. I cannot believe how terrible this game is and I wish I saved my money. The controls on both handheld and motion sensor are horrific. For weeks now, I have been trying to get past the first boss and I’m unable to do so because of the stupid controls. The story and action leading up to this first boss were fun I guess, but the story is so linear as compared to BOTW. This would be one thing if I could continue working through the game, but because I’m stuck at the first boss fight, I can’t even explore even more. 0/10 definitely definitely definitely do NOT recommend.

It’s 90% dialogue, and once you get past that most of the game is just wandering around and following crap. Not fun at all.

I predominantly play handheld, so the controls are absolutely awful. The game itself also didn't age well at all, music is weak, story is lackluster, characters, groups, & villains are forgettable and don't make a lasting impact; as an example if you ask the majority of players who the Kikwi or the Mogma are you'll probably get a response of "no clue" but if you ask the same question on goron's, zora's, rito, korok then chances are you'll get a "they're from x game" and you'll probably get some details on them; same can't be said for the groups or areas in Skyward sword. The games assistant Vi also doesn't stop talking and there's a ton of cut scenes; I mean the first hour or two is more dialogue and cut scenes than game play. But above all else, I cannot stress again the controls are awful for handheld. Now I can say the temple layouts and difficulty is a good and they have some pretty good temple mechanics. Gameplay is good for the most part, game mechanics are cool and the items / tools are fun, really love the flying beetle. Visually the game looks good and is a big improvement from the original but that is already expected. Motion control are awful as also expected
