It’s great to have the opportunity to play this game on the contemporary Switch console, especially having missed this when it was first released 10 years ago.
The game itself is incredibly enjoyable - it’s sweet and endearing, quite amusing (and sometimes even laugh out loud funny), and it has a fantastic soundtrack. And it’s a Zelda game - you know what you’re in for with great world building, solid dungeons, and boss battles o’plenty.
I did not bother with the motion controls, opting for the pro controller instead, and while the combat system felt fluid and natural, the camera control system took some getting used to. To move the camera, you must use both hands, left hand holding a trigger button while the right hand uses the stick (unlike the more modern single stick camera controls in games like Breath of the Wild). As the right stick is shared with the sword combat, you will sometimes find yourself accidentally swinging your sword around when you in fact meant to move the camera, which gets a bit tiresome until you get used to it. However, this is a small quibble in what is otherwise a fantastic game and a really enjoyable story experience.
