The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
Wind Waker HD to the Rescue
I preordered Wind Waker back in 2003 when Eb Games and GameStop were different companies and got the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest as a Preorder bonus and all 3 games were great.
Enough about the last Preorder Bonus tho: With Wind Waker HD coming out I can't wait to re play this game. Not only do I get to replay this game on my Wii U, but it is in HD to boot and the changes it has are not as minor as people think and I will explain why with this list of changes I noticed and just let me warn you now, Spoilers are upon you if you have been staying away from new details about this game:
New Changes and Features:
Faster Sailing has been added to this game. This change is an optional one to use and not required.
It would appear as if the Triforce Charts have been replaced with the shards themselves. This is only from the latest video as of Wednesday we learned this.
Also they have changed from a Tingle Tuner to a Tingle Bottle for Miiverse.
That is just 3 changes that you will see in this game. I am not going to list all of them, because I want People to buy this game.
I can't wait to preorder this game again.
zelda wind waker HD preview.
it's been so long since zelda the wind waker, and all of the criticisms i have been hearing about it like, the bad graphics, and being too kiddy, are just people looking for things to complain about. the wind waker HD will be a great remake of the classic zelda wind waker. I don't know if it will be a remake, or a direct port except in HD. either way, im a classic gamer and i stick with the original, but this looks great.
The Good, the wonder and the bold!
The Legend of Zelda has earned it place among the most well known & respectible game serise of all times. Each game is a incredible uplifting inspirering epic and admursife adventure. It's bold and invative from game to game you never know what to expect with a new Zelda the adventure setting graphics syle, story, and gameplay is different with each installment the only thing sertent is that you will be getting a great adventure! With The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker it never felt like a Zelda game to me. But it's a unforgetible adventure in it's own right. With a beautiful world to explore full of life and some of the most enjoyible side qeast in the Zelda serise. It has well designed Puzzle's and great fight mechanices and even let's u enjoy the combat in some large arrina parts of the levels. The story is personal with well deveped chearters and the amazing chearcter devlepment. This Wii U update adds a unlockible fast sail witch makes the sailing 1000% less depressing and the game now has improved pasing in the collecton near the end of the game. And it now runs at 60fps in HD wide screen. It also has a miiverse feature that let's you send message in a bottle in game that's a amazing way to share momments from this amazing adveture with other players after all we all have a different way of thinking and it near inposible to find everything this game has to offer on your own. So yeah I am not a fan of remakes but this is a good game! I can't really explan it so exprence it for your self. Right from the start it really pulls you in and you will enjoy this game all the way throw now with the improvments made to the flow of the game. God Bless and Happy gaming I hope u enjoy this game.
Was Hoping for Majora's Mask... Next Best Thing
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker probably has the most amount of content to sink long and lonely hours into. Which is good. It also had a graphic style that looked beautiful and functioned well on low specs. Also good. So why in the name of the Triumph Forks did Nintendo remake this one?!
I understand Nintendo was doing graphical experiments with their previous Zelda games to see how HD would work for the next title. Seems Wind Waker was the only one that looked significantly different? They must have not have seen that (allegedly) fake HD trailer for Majora's Mask. (I wonder if Nintendo did make that after all as part of their experiments?) Now Nintendo probably won't remake Majora's Mask for at least a few more years. Dang it.
But you know what? I'm still buying Wind Waker on Wii U and I'm going to like it. I'm too much of a die hard fan. Gonna get it. Gonna beat it. Gonna get 100% in my shrimpin' pajamas. AGAIN. Only this time... this time... in HD.
A great classic, modernized
This game is one of the best Zelda games ever created, at first when it was announced people were on the fence about it because the graphics looked to cartoony. But after when this game came out it was a masterpiece. Years later and its been redone in HD with a lighting system that is much better than the original. there is also a new hero mode where the game is basically harder. This game also fixes problems from the original version for example sailing in the original version got quite boring but now you can upgrade your sail to 2x the speed to travel the waters and continue on your adventure faster. there is also gyro controls now for some items like the grapple and bow. If you had the original windwaker then you should try out this new HD modernized version, and if you have never played windwaker, whenever you have the time definitely pick up this amazing game.
One of my personal favorite Zelda games goes HD.
This has gotten me really excited when it was announced.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of my favorite Zelda games of all time. Sadly It had massive criticism because of the art direction they went with was not appealing to others. But for me it was mind blowing, the Cel shaded look was just so beautiful, I literally spent my time with the game watching the game and item effects such as the exploding bombs were eye catching. The gameplay was amazing, the the cutscenes were well played and sometimes really funny Japanese humor, the characters are lovable and likable, the boss battles were so much fun, the items were really cool and useful. Just everything about this game makes me want to not drop the controller.
Now in its 10th Anniversary, its being remade with this generation of graphics and a few tweaks to make the game different than the original instead of an HD paint job. This is going to be SWEET.
Hopefully this game gets the more attention it deserves, alot of people missed out on the original because of the different style they went with. Please guys get this game, you missed out on a really fun adventure. Alot of people criticized DmC, but they tried it and changed their minds about it when they played it and actually liked it. Do the same for Wind Waker.
Let me start of by saying i have been playing The Legend of Zelda games since the very first one on NES in 1986! I know A LOT about the series and i've played every one of them. The Wind Waker is easily my favorite in the series! The cell shaded graphics looked amazing then and they still look amazing now over a DECADE later! The controls are perfect, the music... omg the music is ear candy 100%! Some of the best music ever in a video game! The game just pops with style and oozes color! The new lighting looks great and the dungeons are some of the best in the series. Some people didn't like all of the sailing so Nintendo added a new sail that is not only faster than the original but also doesn't require you to change the wind with the wind waker wand! The old quest to recover tingles 7 charts has been nerfed down to 3 charts which is a much welcome change! Buy this game! Play it, love it, CHERISH IT! :D
Another 10/10 for Nintendo
I'm getting tired of giving games 10/10 on reviews but it's so hard to when I own all these amazing Nintendo games.
The Wind Waker redefined art in video games. It showed that your game can look bubbly and light like the good old days but still have powerful gameplay that's new in every aspect.
If you're already into the Zelda games and haven't played this, you've missed one of the top 3 big hits. If you haven't played the Zelda games I'd suggest you get to it!
The adventure is reborn
The WInd Waker is a highly overlooked Zelda title that has finally gotten it's chance in the spot light. The WInd Waker HD looks absolutely gorgeous with the Wii U's stunning graphics. Nintendo has made many improvements as well. IT"S NOT JUST A PORT! For example, a lot of the game takes place sailing the great sea, in the original it took the a very long time to get to destination to destination. Now the boat sails so much faster which as actuarially pretty crucial to enjoying there game. That's just one of many improvements that help make the game even better. Now the music, OH the music! Many tracks have been beautifully remastered and are better than ever! Finally what I'd like to talk about are the Gamepad functionality. for one thing, You can now play off the TV screen and the Gamepad also houses your inventory, map, and well everything else. So no more pausing the game and switching out your inventory or checking the map for you! It's all of these things that make Wind Waker HD amazing and worth picking up. If you have a Wii U than what the heck are you waiting for, go get this game! If your don't have the Wii U, I highly suggest to get the WInd Waker HD Wii U bundle, it's the perfect choice. Wind Waker HD is not just any video game, it's an experience, a journey, and most importantly, a legend.
The legend is reborn.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of the best Zelda games ever made. Originally released on the Gamecube, Wind Waker didn't sell well due to it's cartoony look. But looks don't matter as this game was simply perfection as it has a great story, adventure, music, and a plethora of side quests just like any Zelda game. Since it is a remake your probably don't feel that you should get it or even buy a Wii U for it if you don't already have one. BUT there are plenty of reasons to get this game. For the first time ever you'll be able to experience Zelda in HD glory for the first time ever. With the games story, music, and action, there is no reason at all as to why you shouldn't get this game even if it is a port from the Gamecube version.
