In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Wii, the player assumes the role of Link. He has his roots in the place known as Skyloft. These are a group of islands floating in the air. Growing up in a peaceful environment and performing casual tasks. One day, Link finds a sword. It is a powerful, enchanted weapon containing a spirit. It turns out there is a land taken over by evil forces beneath Skyloft, and it awaits its savior. With the power of the Skyward Sword and advice it delivers, Link sets out for an amazing journey around both the worlds, trying to find out about the reasons for the separation that occurred between the worlds.
In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Wii, Link fights his enemies with a few available weapons and special accessories. These include the famous sword in combination with the shield, a bow, a slingshot, bombs, a spy-beetle and a whip, which allows to solve certain puzzles.
A great feature of the game is the complexity of controls by which the player interacts with the in-game environment. The game utilizes both the Wiimote and Nunchuck combined with the MotionPlus device. The game stands out with impressive visuals. In contrast to Twilight Princess, these are rather cheerful.
