The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD wowed reviewer Ryan Jones when he played it earlier this year, with it scoring an impressive 4.5/5. Jones praised it for its impressive visuals, stellar dungeon levels and fantastic combat.
“The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is a fantastic remake, with Nintendo elevating the visuals and adding many quality-of-life improvements,” wrote Jones in his The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD review.
“The introduction of physical controls is the best addition, providing a secondary option for those who despise motion controls. With some of the best dungeons in the series, and a unique take on combat, Skyward Sword HD is a must-play for Zelda fans and Switch owners.”
The game had to fend off strong competition to win the award, with top titles including New Pokémon Snap, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury also being shortlisted.
