Your experience with Skyward Sword's controls can vary immensely from the next guy's. Some people had no trouble whatsoever becoming acclimated with the motions, whereas others could never get the sword to go where they wanted. Is this a problem with the game itself, with a bad batch of Wii Remotes or MotionPlus dongles, or with the individual player? Regardless of the reason, it's an issue that has soured many folks' experience.
Mega64's Rocco is one such player, although he seems to be in possession of a different Skyward Sword build than the rest of us. It's like a completely different game! I'm sure if more people had his copy, they would be more willing to give Zelda another chance.
