Famitsu Gave Skyward Sword a Perfect Score!

Apr 6, 2011
Wow, that's awesome. First Zelda game to achieve perfect score since the Wind Waker. Not to mention it's the 16th game to achieve 40/40 from Famitsu. :)


Mad haters lmao

Drat, you beat me to it (20+ minutes? xD). I expected no less than perfect score, really I was waiting for them to finally release it. This further shows that SS joins OoT and MM on my favorites list (:

Most complaints about SS are really just personal gripes as far as I can tell, besides some WiiMotion + Calibration stuffs that people may or may not have to deal with. Famitsu seems to have nailed the game on the head multiple times to give it a perfect!

That's obviously very historic. Famitsu has only given out 16 perfect scores, and three of them have come from Eiji Aonuma's design team. With all of the reviews Skyward Sword has gotten, it now averages out to a 94.40%. Not too shabby (like a yellow rupee!), but it is a little lower than I expected. Oh well. I can still guarantee it'll be the best gameI've ever played

With all these great scores and reviews, it makes the lower scores and worse reviews seem pretty irrelevant. Every time I see another 10 my excitement level grows exponentially. I can't wait for sunday!

Awesome! strange how its a 40/40 not a 100/100 score, but ah well! Great to hear another good review.
