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.

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.

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.

I bought this game for my husband's birthday and suddenly, I have the quietest house. My whole crew is happily in the living room, intently playing (or watching) this game. I'm sure my husband would say something about the incredible graphics and the little extra touches that make it worth owning, when we also own the non-HD version. My husband has finished the game, my 8 yr old (daughter) is a good chunk of the way through it and my 5yr old daughter is enjoying it, too. And now my husband it playing it again. I'm thrilled that I found "that perfect gift" and happy that it turned out to be something everyone enjoyed!

One of the most amazing things about Wind Waker HD is how well it holds up today. The gameplay is fine-tuned to near perfection, showcasing some of the best sword combat in the series. Focusing on horizontal and vertical attacks, combined with dodge and parry, taking down foes is easy and fun. Dungeons are littered with clever puzzles that were fun to rediscover. The intricacy of their design has always been one of the highlights of the series. Bosses are also a highlight, sticking with the traditional Zelda formula, each one is dispensed cleverly by the dungeon's obtained item, and each one is bigger, and more impressive than the last.

The opening few hours definitely feel like an extended tutorial, but that is pretty standard with Zelda games. Anyone coming in fresh should note that until Dragon Roost Island is introduced, and sailing begins, it definitely takes some time to get moving.

When Wind Waker was originally released, it had a few drawbacks that players to this daystill can't get over. The biggest is the massive fetch quest at the end of the game that forces Link to find eight treasure charts throughout the world. Not only that, but he then had to pay Tingle (the charming side character in the game) 398 rupees to decipher each one. It took way too long, and actually prevented me from finishing the game initially. With Wind Waker HD this has been remedied. Five of the eight pieces are found without maps, which speed up the process substantially, and makes the endgame portion much more bearable.

The other drawback to the original was the sailing. While it starts out novel and fun, it quickly becomes tiresome due to the fact that Link has to play a magical tune on his Wind Waker to change the direction of the wind.
