Hero mode = hard mode
After you beat the game it will give you an option to start a new game in hero mode, in it you take double damage, keep your treasures, and keep the fully upgraded skyward strike. There is also supposed to be an alternate ending and a few changes in npc dialogue. And that's about it.
This year I saw a lot of websites that said that the people who created the skyward sword... they said they hated it .... they said "this game failed... so that means we failed Link and that hot-lookin' princess Zelda"
Judge me and I'll prove you wrong
Tell me what to do and I'll tell you off
Say im not worth it i think so too
Call me crazy.... you really have no idea how crazy i can REALLY get
Spoiler Alert!~ Finally a DBZ photo that is 20% Cooler
Pretty sure we all had a discussion 'bout SS' quality in another thread. In recollective summary, SS was certainly grand of course, but admittedly disappointing for the 25th anniversary of the franchise due to a few... overworld-ish problems, one might say.
Not that I'd complain half as viciously as the haters 'n over-expectant e-scum, 'course. All that really matters to me is that t'was a great game I had no qualms payin' full price for.
Skyward Sword was pretty damn great, imo. There were issues, but all games have issues.
Only failures say that SS was a failure. =/
