I've played about 7 hours and I'm almost at the 3rd dungeon. I can't give a full review, since I am not very far into it but it's good. There is a lot of revolutionary stuff going on with the motion controls trapped in a game that feels so last gen. Some of the new mechanics they added make the game feel like it hasn't developed since the early 2000's. The dowsing parts are super annoying, they remind me of the terrible Knuckles levels in the Sonic Adventure games. Using a beeping radar to get a puzzle piece wasn't very fun in 1999 and it still isn't. They added the ability for shields to break and a slot based inventory, but it's obvious they added these features in because modern games let weapons and armor break, but it doesn't make sense in a game like this. The items you can carry is limited by how much space is in your adventure pouch, and it can get very annoying. I had to choose between being able to carry 5 more bombs with the bigger bomb pouch or the bug net so I can catch bugs to upgrade my equipment, and that felt like a really unneeded decision. The combat is really amazing. Every new enemy feels like a new puzzle the player has to solve. It is very satisfying to have control over every swipe and slash and it doesn't fee; gimmicky at all. The items I've used so far really benefit from the motion plus. Bombs can now be rolled and have wii sports bowling like curve added to the roll. Using the beetle is awesome, just flying him around an area as a scout and dropping bombs on enemies feels great. I've never really had an issue with the motion plus, I've only had to recalibrate once in 7 hours and the game only had difficulty figuring out if I was slashing or stabbing once.The dungeons are a lot of fun too. They have some really cool puzzles, including time manipulation and moving the sword around to confuse eyeballs guarding doors. Even getting to the dungeon feels like a mini-dungeon, you're never really safe and you're constantly solving puzzles to make it one step closer to the dungeon. It does a great job mixing up the usual Zelda formula and feels like a real step forward for the series.So far it's a really good Zelda game. It's not as amazing as Ocarina of Time was and still is, but it is very enjoyable. It's good enough to distract me from Skyrim, so that's really saying something.
