The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – The Legend of Zelda series
It’s really difficult to pick out the least popular game from the powerhouse that is The Legend of Zelda, but if we had to put a finger on one – that would be Skyward Sword. Not that it’s a bad game, but questionable design decisions like clunky motion controls and overtly simple combat really hampered the game’s quality for many fans. But if you manage to look past that – which has become a lot easier thanks to the HD re-release on Switch – you will find that Skyward Sword has so much to love.
From the charming story and art style to memorable side quests and so much more, Skyward Sword has no shortage of merits that would put it on the same (or even a higher pedestal) than other mainline entries. And the fact that it’s technically the first game in the mainline Zelda timeline also makes it really easy to get into.
