    The original Wind Waker was one of the greatest Zelda games I've ever played. This title is a worthy remake of that original.

    The graphics are clearly improved. This isn't just a simple upscaling to 1080p--the new shaders help bring the game alive. Frankly, it looks simply stunning compared to the original (which, at the time, also looked pretty nifty.)

    The Wii U GamePad integration is excellent. It displays your items, maps and Miiverse bottles on the screen--and equipping new items is simply a case of dragging that item (using the touch screen) to the slot you wish to assign it to, without having to pause the game mid-battle (although, of course, items can still be equipped when paused.) This results in far less faffing around compared to the original, as you're able to check your sea charts, swap items and read bottle messages without having to pause the action. It's also possible to play the game entirely on the GamePad (if someone wishes to use your television for other purposes) - but note that, in this mode, you'll lose the ability to equip items/check maps without pausing the game.

    There are also minor quality-of-life improvements here and there. For instance, the Grappling Hook animation has been shortened compared to its GameCube ancestor. The GamePad's gyroscope can be used to aim first-person items (Hook, telescope, etc.) There's also an item available after completing Dragon Roost Cavern that makes your journey across the seas much simpler.

    A new mode named Hero Mode is present - enemies will deal more damage to Link, and there are no hearts to replenish health. Wind Waker veterans may wish to jump directly into the mode, as it's available without having to complete the game on Normal mode first.

    I can't rave enough about this remake. It's certainly enhanced my love for Wind Waker, and is well worth the price tag considering the number of new features that made it into this version.

    On the 2nd of May 2003, the Wind Waker was released, received by a very split audience. It was this game that first introduced Toon Link – a cel-shaded version of the Hero of Time in a whole new cel-shaded adventure. The Wind Waker unveiled the start of a very original and beautiful art style, but in a period of video games where realism spelled success, it was overlooked. Ten years later, the Wind Waker HD is released. The game has been tweaked and improved as well as a luscious coating of HD beauty. The lapping of the waves looks like a moving painting and all of the cel-shaded characters are diverse and memorable. The original game is still visually impressive to date so it is a pleasant surprise to see what updated lighting and coloring adds to the aesthetics of the game.

    The game is set several centuries after the Ocarina of Time and begins on Outset Island, an island surrounded by a vast ocean which forms the games hub-world. From the get go you are introduced to the beautiful world to which the game is set. The story begins with Link’s coming of age, and by tradition he’s given the classic green tunic which the Hero of Time wore. Following the series’ usual patterns, you complete a number of simple tutorials to get yourself used to the control scheme before being thrust into the plot of the story. After the arrival of a pirate ship and a misplaced Captain Tetra, a minion of Ganondorf – a large bird – swoops down to the island and carries away Link’s sister. Link, of course, decides to rescue her. With the aid of the King of Red Lions, a magical speaking ship, you travel across the vast ocean in the attempt to find the pieces of the tri-force to defeat Ganon once more.

    Due to the GameCube’s limited processing power, the vast horizon was blurred.

    Hello friends....Zelda is back!
    10 years ago this game was sublime, and that hasn't changed. This is sheer beauty and brilliance combined.
    The tweaks over the original GameCube version are very welcome, but it's not as much about the modifications with this remake, this was about the continuation of giving Zelda to a new generation. Ocarina 3D was a great entry title and Wind Waker should be the catalyst for newcomers to track down previous Zelda titles (maybe not the CDI efforts though)

    A must buy for anybody who owns the U, I cannot praise this game enough. The only criticism would be the price which is a tad steep, but with the next gen on the horizon there could be a price drop soon.

    If you've yet to play a Zelda game then this is the time to get stuck in, then go download A Link To The Past from the Wii store....you're welcome.

    Thanks.

    For a game that is 10 years old, the Gamecube version still holds up well to todays standards of HD gaming due to it's graphical style.

    Moving forward 10 years, Nintendo bought this to the WiiU and to HD with that. The graphical style of this stands out by a mile in HD, it's stunning. It's like seeing Wind Waker again for the first time, reliving Link's adventures feel new again. Even though it's the same story as before. With the new HD textures comes better looking areas, Windfall Island looks stunning, the storms across the Great Sea are better than ever. I believe a fine example of how great this looks comes with staring at the Tower of Gods, showing how much more detail is now on show than before.

    Of course, not all the improvements have come from the visuals. The audio has been improved, so now you can listen to all the sounds of the game in stunning surround sound. There have been a few improvements in how the game plays as well, you can pick-up the colour pictograph a heck of a lot earlier (and before getting to Dragon Roost Island) as well. And it gives you more slots than before, so more Pictos for collection to the Nintendo Gallery owner (and you can put all 10 to the chap at once, so no more waiting). You can get a new "faster" sail, which not only allows faster sailing across the ocean, but also keeps the wind behind you without the need to stop to change it's direction. Timings have improved with changing the wind direction, un-necessary animations have been removed from the wind changing. One of the top improvements comes from the menu, no more pressing "pause" to change what's on what button. It can all be done via the Gamepad (even if using a Pro Controller).
