The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker HD GameStop Exclusive Limited Edition
No longer available via retail
First off, I just have to say that this limited edition is now out of print and there is no way to obtain it other than through a third party seller on eBay or Amazon.
I remember getting the Wind Waker for the GameCube way back when the game came out many years ago. I was only just barely a teenager at that time but I knew I had to have the game after seeing screenshots of it in my Nintendo Power magazines. Finally, the day came when I got the game in the mail. My mom had ordered the special bundle for me from Nintendo Power that included the game along with things like the player's guide and various other bonuses. I played the heck out of that game. I would come home from a long day at school and sit for several hours at a time, after getting my homework done of course.
Fast forward to the year 2013 and we are reintroduced to this amazing title in full blown HD. The graphics are a very nice edition to the game as a whole. I found myself just staring at some of the environments in amazement of how great everything looked. I remember everything about The Wind Waker. The characters, the great rides from island to island, the story, and the music. There is so much in this game that really speaks to me in terms of the environment. The characters feel lifelike as you progress on your journey. Of course, some may feel confused by that statement because this game is not one of those where photorealism is a thing. To me, a game is meant to be played to escape reality... not to live in it.
The limited edition bundle that includes a copy of the game and a statue of Ganondorf himself (the villain in most Zelda titles) is actually pretty nice. I preordered the bundle as soon as it was announced. The statue feels great in the hand is of high quality. There is one thing that should be noted. The North American version of this limited edition does NOT come with a glass dome like the European edition does. The North American version comes with a base, the statue itself, and the tassels that hook to the ends of Ganondorf's swords for decoration.
Captivating remake of an incredible game!
I highly enjoyed Wind Waker when it came out for the GameCube, this limited edition remake makes that game even better! The limited edition is great. I love the figurine. The game is not all that different from the original of course since it's just an HD remake, but the WiiU touchpad makes it awesome. I definitely recommend getting this edition if you have the chance, you will not regret it!
GREAT GAME - LE FALLS SHORT
The game is great. I never played is personally but I did see my younger sister play this game over and over. Now it is my turn to enjoy such a great game that is a classic for current and past generations. Now for the LE Packaging. The Glass/Plastic dome pictured above does not come with the game, apparently that is for EU only. WEAK. I would have loved the glass dome with the figurine but instead the US gets a gold foiled game artwork.
Timeless Classic in HD
This is how an hd remade classic should be like. every little detail in the game is in full hd and they even added new features to the game. iv seen some classics remade in where only the characters are in hd and the surroundings are left the same. nintendo really put a lot of effort onto this remake and its amazing. the game is great the story is just as good too and its just as fun as i remember it was back in the good old gamecube days :) world is huge with lots of things to explore. this is a must buy if you own a wii u
Game gets 10 - LE gets a 7
The item does not come with the dome as pictured. This is very misleading for an item already priced $5 more than the MSRP and an added shipping rate. The figure is great but the dome really added a "classy" visual to the figure. Boooo GS
Just because you miss out on a pre-order doesnt mean you should bad mouth the games review score. The games remake looks great. This zelda game is one of the best in the series. The newer Zelda's have kind of lost there feel with the linear story and quick gameplay. This game keeps the dungeons and open world discovery in tact. With the graphic touch up it keeps the game a live and helps you remember why you played this game in the past. People need to learn game for fun then whine and post bad game review over a missed pre-order (keep more up to date about whats coming out then.)
Limited Edition doesn't come with glass dome D:
The game, so far looks amazing in almost every way! Reliving the classic Windwaker adventure in amazing Wii U HD graphics is going to be a blast! Only thing, to those who pre-ordered the Limited Edition, like myself aren't going to get the glass dome that's shown in the picture. That's a little disappointing.. The European version of the figure is what is shown on the picture, which is a lot bigger, and comes with the dome..
I like this game, don't get me wrong, but we have already played this before. Same old thing rehashed in HD, big whoop. I recommend saving your money, cause this one will come down in price really fast, half price by Christmas. If you really gotta have the figure, by all means go ahead. I just think with all the new releases coming out, maybe your money would be better invested elsewhere. I love Zelda, but I already have this in gamecube form, no need to have 2 copies of it that no one will play anymore.
Its no shock that this is sold out. It's a classic amazing game that all Zelda fans love! This game will all stay in our hearts
Can't believe this sold out so fast. I preordered this the day they announced it and it sold out 4 days later. wow!!!!!
