Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Legend of Zelda is my favorite series in all of gaming, a lifelong hobby and a favorite pastime in and of itself for me, and The Wind Waker just happens to be my favorite entry in that series. When I first glimpsed the screenshots Nintendo revealed of this remake, I literally danced for joy all the way to my bedroom to wake my wife with the blessed news. I just couldn't contain my excitement, and now that I finally have Wind Waker HD in my possession, it's nearly everything I could have hoped for from one of my personal favorite and most influential video games of all time. Although I was pretty skeptical it could be *that* much of an upgrade when I first bought it, Nintendo really went all-out here, way beyond my expectations. Before you read this review any further, I need to insert this disclaimer: this review will be quite long (hopefully in an informative-from-a-superfan sort of way) and (mostly) full of gushing praise from a lifelong gamer who is super passionate about The Wind Waker. If long, detailed reviews are not your thing, then skip this one. You've been warned.

For fans of Wind Waker who already know how amazing the core game is and just want to know what Nintendo upgraded and how this remake works out, skip the next two paragraphs. I bought the downloadable eshop version two weeks ago, and have become intimately acquainted with this remake by now, and I've played the original more times than I care to count. That been said, I think I'm more than capable of judging this version fairly.

*What's So Great About The Wind Waker?*

If you're unfamiliar with the game at all, you might wonder why I love Wind Waker so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is why I used to love playing video games October 4, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to give a lengthy review full of minute details, spoilers and pros and cons. This game is fun, pure and simple. It is hard enough to be a challenge, yet simple enough to encourage continued playing. It is appropriate for children; no close-up exploding headshots with exotic weapons or multiplayer battlefield death arenas that seem to be popular nowadays. I've had this game for 4 hours now. It is already much better than twilight princess or skyward sword. Sometimes, simpler is better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Praises from a Wind Waker Newbee October 28, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
So many reviews here focussed on comparisons with the original version, I thought someone needed to pipe in who'd never played it before.
At first glance this is a surprisingly charming game (and that's from someone, who tends to ignore the text and story). As you get more involved, you'll discover what an incredibly vast, rich game it is. The sheer amount of content is almost overwhelming. But for me the real enjoyment comes from the endlessly clever puzzles/mysteries and villains built into the game. The dungeons are the a wonderful mixture of brain and braun challenges in a graphically rich environment.

Controls: Part of the joy of play comes from being rewarded with new tools/weapons as you progress. Most are really fun to play with. However, I personally found a few very awkward: arrows especially at least till I switched to using GamePad's gyroscope controls. I still find trying to manipulate the canon very difficult. But I don't feel comfortable deducting a star here, since this could be user error. I much prefer the motion controls as in the Wii Zelda's but I think I'm in the minority here

Graphics: INMO This is strictly a matter of personal taste. If you like hyper-real blood-dripping graphics this game is NOT for you. I actually prefer the cartoonish characters - and the artistically stunning interiors.

Overall, I think this is a fabulous game, lots of play for your bucks, and there's really nothing comparable (short of the best of Zelda games) on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Remake. Enhancements are nice. October 11, 2013
By J E

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The grandkids had played the Gamecube version a few months back. We linked the Gameboy to the Gamecube version so we could complete all the side quests. I wondered how Nintendo would set this one up. They changed how a few of the quests (Tingle Statues Quest, etc.) could be completed on this remake without linking another system to it. They have added a few things that wasn't in the original. IMO, this HD version is like night and day. So much better.

We do use the Nintendo WiiU Pro Controller to play this game. Some people have complained that the Wii controller is jerky and not smooth when fighting bosses, etc. We have found the Pro Controller is smooth and easy to control camera angle of the game. Still not a hundred percent happy with the placement of the Y, X, B & A buttons but over all is a nice controller to use with this game.

The charts that are found throughout the game are easier to open than they were with the original game. This aspect was improved.

We haven't gotten to the point in the game where we can take pictures and have statues made of the characters to have placed in gallery. Will be interesting to see how much the detail of the statues have been improved. The camera has been improved so it now holds a lot more pictures. I imagine they have set this one up also so in order to get all the statues a person will have to play through the game a second time. (However, in the original there were statues we weren't supposed to be able to get first time playing through, but we did get them without waiting for second play through) In regards to playing time, compared to the cost of the game, it makes for a lot of playing time in order to finish all the quests. IMO, well worth buying.
