Yes, I did have my doubts about it at first. But it's actually very, very good. I love the mechanics they've created with the Wii format. There are lots of situations when which direction you swing the remote matters. Especially during fighting - they've adapted the Stalfos and Beamos for example in correspondence to the Wii mechanics. It's awesome.
In general, it's a nice backstory to the games that chronologically follow afterwards and just very fun to play.
That sounds really amazing! I bet it adds a different level of immersion to the game, even different feel completely, perhaps, than using a regular controller. Definitely something I'd want to play though (mostly solely the fact that it's just another loz game )
