One of my all time favourite games. This HD remaster doesn't just improve the visuals, but more importantly, improves the efficiency and pace of the game. One of the greatest and most wonderful adventures ever, now even better than it was before. A must if you haven't played the original GameCube version. And even if you did, it's an excellent upgrade.
The control system has undergone a redefinition given by the presence of the gamepad. Obviously, the interface is not changed , so the same keys used to attack, interaction with the environment and much remained the same as in the original version. The use of the touch screen paddone however, allows the player to avoid pressing the button used to pause . The management of the menu is in fact entirely possible simply by touching the GamePad , in fact assigning the various trinkets in the game the shortcuts . The system works well and we are confident that Nintendo will keep the same interface in the adventures to come. The gyroscope has suggested developers to directly use the body of the pad as a means to make the most of the shot in the first person or the use of weapons -focused aims . Physically moving the GamePad will then be possible to frame the target and shoot an arrow , for example , throw the boomerang and the like. Needless to emphasize, however, that the whole thing can be turned off and managed directly through the analog sticks . The GamePad will serve not only as a second screen . Through a simple touch you can decide whether to move Link and his adventures directly on the resistive screen of the controller. If in terms of plot Nintendo has decided not to change any details , the presence of the new sail to be exploited instead of the wand Wind Waker is definitely a great choice. Use the magical artifact will be soon boring and repetitive , so well is the purchase of the sail just mentioned . So be careful at the auction house Taura , after the first dungeon place and time in which to invest their savings . Surely gamers who have dealt with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker ten years ago will remember perfectly the ability to connect your Game Boy Advance Game Cube and take advantage of the Radio Tingle . This time users will be faced with bottles Tingle , means to leave in the middle of the sea a series of bottles containing various messages of course . They can be tips, spoilers, pictures and whatever comes to mind. Basically Nintendo has thought of how to integrate the Miiverse within the Zelda universe . The graphics engine based on the technology of cel-shading has no doubt charm. Also go to edit a motion engine that comic strip has definitely made slightly less difficult passage in high definition. It 'worth noting , however, that the team has accomplished a Nintendo really amazing, infusing a number of features to the title of the highest level . The play of light and lighting created for the occasion give the game a highly distinctive verve quickly forget that you are in front of a title that has taken over a decade . The same is true with regard to the simulation of day & night cycles , very convincing thanks to the reconstruction of the shadows perfectly, which emerge not only on the elements in the scenario but from every part of the body of the characters at that time. The audio sector is undoubtedly revised . The environmental effects are echoed in the room giving the appearance of being in the company of wildlife that attends the location. The same praise goes to the roar of the blows inflicted by our sword and all those effects chosen for the battle stages . We unfortunately found themselves in trouble with the camera manual. Perhaps too accustomed to the last few episodes , the management of the frame using the right stick really caught us unprepared. Consequently, it will require a good deal of practice before you take over the management in a perfect manner . It 'worth noting that our review of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is not based on the quality of the game, but on the work carried out by Nintendo. The quality of the adventure of Link is undoubtedly flawless and claim to be faced with a real milestone in the history of video games is just a fact. The conversion of the game is undoubtedly been edited for perfection in every aspect. Consequently gamers who want to take an adventure than a decade ago but far from aged well advised to evaluate their purchase.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD gets the HD treatment it deserves. An already beautiful game made more so by the power of the WiiU, Wind Waker's triumphant return marks the first Zelda title to grace Nintendo's new machine. With all the charm and excitement of the original, this is a treat for old fans and those yet to experience the wonder of Link's journey across the seas to rescue his sister, find sunken treasure, battle sea monsters and battle his arch nemesis Ganon. A perfect action adventure RPG and a shining example of what The Legend of Zelda is. A great sprawling adventure and a must own for every Zelda fan young and old.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is one of the must have games of all time! It is a reason to buy a Wii U console.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is top quality. This HD remake of the Gamecube classic has all the Zelda trademarks. It's a fun game play and has a great story mixed with wonderful swordplay and puzzle solving. It will blow you away.
At the moment this is the only "must-have-game" for the Wii u. It's pure Nintendo-magic! If you're not familiar with the Zelda franchise this is a adventure game in 3rd person view. In short, it's big, exiting and better then the original in every possible way. The only downside is that the AI still is pretty bad and should, in my opinion, been reworked for this remake.
One of the best - and most controversial - of the Zelda series lovingly remade for the Wii U. Beautiful HD graphics although possibly a bit too much bloom, and a very good implementation of GamePad controls. Minus one star for not reinstating the dungeons which were cut from the original due to then- time constraints.
My son has really been enjoying this game. Thanks Zavvi for the relatively fast arrival of this item and at a much more reasonable price than a lot of other retailers.
And excellent service as usual from Zavvi.
I wasn't convinced at first that this would be worth buying and playing through a second time. I'm glad I did as Wind Waker HD is an amazing remake. The updated graphics really highlight just how bold Nintendo were going with a cartoony look. The subtle lighting and HD textures look amazing on my big tv and even better when played on the gamepad. If you haven't played Wind Waker before this should be a definite purchase.
Excellent HD re-imaging of a truly classic game. I cannot believe how Nintendo managed to breath new life to what is, maybe, the best 3D Zelda game around. New lighting effects and upgraded textures are a joy to watch and the remastered music is a treat for your ears. It controls beautifully with the WiiU gamepad and makes certain moments in the game even more memorable! Truly a must buy for any WiiU owner and perhaps a system seller?
Excellent game overall can't really tell it's a 10yr old game. A HD remake that actually IS in HD with an obvious visual upgrade along with other beneficial tweaks.
Brilliant game , so much to do in it I'm gonna be playing it for a few months
Awesome remake of a great game, absolutely love it! 5 stars!
Nintendo have done an amazing job of refreshing this classic The Legend of Zelda title. It always felt like playing a cartoon back on the Gamecube, but totally feels the case now. The HD overhaul of the graphics alone is a reason to buy this title, even if you've played it before, but it feels as fresh and new as it did years ago. Lots of fun!
Received on day one. Most pleased with it. Good price. Best online retailer.
Absolute joy of a game to revisit after 10 years. For anyone who has never played the game, it is a must play! And envy anyone playing for the first time
Fabulous game... Never played the original so really good to at last play it... HD makes it so worth while!
I loved The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD when it first came out on the GameCube now it's here on the Wii U in wonderful HD, glorious graphics, wonderful story and new gameplay this has just got even better, I love Zelda and love this new game.
