The Bad
Troublesome controls
Lots of padding
Predictable formula.

Gamespot's score is the single WORST score for Skyward Sword on Metacritic. I'm not sure what they are thinking, whether they think they are the bold reviewers that will go against the flow or if they are just trolling... Well, I got my copy coming in the mail, I'll know soon enough...

You actually bought a Wii?

Still looking for a cheap used Wii, will be more lenient on pricing when I actually get my game. Game is bought and will be shipped soon enough though.

they think they are the bold reviewers that will go against the flowThey're complaining about bullshit that occurs in any game. Predictable formula, really? They give a game like Call of Duty, which, except for better graphics, has been pretty much exactly the same over the years, a higher score (8.5 (http://www.gamespot.com/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3/reviews/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3-review-6344474)) than Skyward Sword?
Troublesome controls, don't make me laugh. The game controls beautifully, but hey, it's a Wii game so that can't be true.

Well, I suppose this only proves sites will do anything to attract more viewers.

At this point, I'm pretty sure a lot of the discriminatory hate that is directed at the Wii comes from a lot of the "lol Ninty sucks" reviews from Gamespot.
