Kids say (1 ):

Skillfully slicing symbols into the environment with a sword and whip seem like an ideal way to use the Wii's motion controls, but Zorro just doesn't – ahem – cut it. Poor graphics and frustratingly inaccurate controls will disappoint even fans of the Zorro character and universe. There's nothing so maddening as a game that handicaps a beloved superhero with weak production values and clunky gameplay.

Even in tutorial mode the moves are nearly impossible to correctly execute and when you finally do nail a combination, it feels more like luck than skill. Compounding matters, there are no difficulty settings. The game's last-generation graphics and awkward camera angles don't help either. The Destiny of Zorro, in short, feels unfinished and sloppy.
