Both times I played Zelda I really didn't enjoy it too much. In 2011 I even waited over an hour to play the newer demo to give it a second chance. The more I read about the game the less I wanted to play it. It seemed like it was going to be a Zelda game that focused on story instead of gameplay. After Twilight Princess came out Miyamoto said the next Zelda would be completely different and reinvented, however this was clearly not true. The Wii U Zelda is claiming the same thing.
It really pained me to see what direction they took the Zelda series, the character designs, too much dialogue, lack of overworld, and forcing directions on the player all seemed like they were taking a huge step back from a formula that already worked well. I wasn't just not going to buy the game, I was angry about it and had legitimate concerns but everyone said I was a "troll" and that it was Game Of The Year (before the game had even come out).
Fast forward to early January 2013 and I am feeling less cynical and polarized about the whole thing. Kmart had it for 20$ with the Music CD, I bought it and have to say that while it is far from the best Zelda game it is still a high quality game and is easily worth 50$. It is a lot of fun even though there are some annoyances involved. I should have just bought it day 1 and enjoyed it instead of being so negative about the whole thing. Now it seems like people are finally understanding the flaws the game does have though. If you own a Wii, are a Zelda fan and don't have SS, buy it.

No lefty flip
Felt like the most linear Zelda ever
That stupid hub thing they used in the DS Zeldas (going from point a, to b, back to a, to c, etc does not entertain me)
Not having the traditional 8 or more dungeons (They're my favorite part about Zelda so yeah)
The soundtrack is pretty much forgettable
Gimping the enemies to fit the motion plus gimmick (Had it just been bosses and big enemies that don't show up much I wouldn't of complained, but when they give it to bokoblins and litter the place with them it becomes irritating.)
Had it not been for Groose being awesome I would of hated Skyword Sword more.
But still, people might like it. Especially compared to the 4-8 hour games that litter the industry today. The lack of a lefty flip might of effected the controls and cause me to not really like it as much as I could of if I was right handed.
This game is in the same area Wind Waker was, it's either you like it or you hate it as a Zelda game. So yeah. $20 bucks is worth a gamble just cause it's Zelda.

Whats this lefty flip all about?
Im left handed so im curious.
They made Link right handed and didn't provide a lefty flip. So Link uses his right hand the entire game and you can't switch it. So it feel really weird cause of the motion plus stuff that the game is based on.

how can i tell if it's the one with cd or not
There should be a little label printed directly on the cover in the upper left-hand corner that indicates it.

My target didn't have them in the normal area but on a couple of endcaps. The one with the sell price only had one copy but the other had about 6 and they do have the 25th anniversary soundtrack cd. Listening to that now.

I actually went to best buy to pm and they refused.... Even offered to buy it at target, bring in my receipt, and buy it at best buy, to return my other copy to target... Obviously best buy doesn't want my money... Spend hundreds of $'s there each year.... Definitely will not be back in the store in my town...
STFU. God damn, it's not like you're the only person on this planet who spends money there. I guarantee you will shop at that particular store sometime in the future. No need for hollow threats. So they didn't PM, big deal.

More importantly, and leads on a cheap Wii Motion Plus? I'd like to actually play it at some point.
