    If you're going to buy a Wii U and you have one choice, Get it for Wind Waker alone.

    A beautiful game that sometimes leaves you adrift.

    I love the Zelda series. I also love that Nintendo released a HD version of this game. I don't think a ton of people got to experience this the first time around on the good ol' cube. It really is a beautiful game with ... Read Full Review

    Since I first played Wind Waker, back on the gamecube, I ranked it as my second favourite Zelda after Majara's Mask. Like Majara's Mask it didn't quite follow popular and ground breaking Ocarina of Time as closely as man... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is THE best Zelda game so far and it's a beautiful, beautiful game.

    The Legend of Zelda has never been in a situation like it is now. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was praised up and down and is known as the best game ever made in a lot of circles. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's M... Read Full Review

    The main reason to get a Wii U

    I've had my Wii U for quite some time but never really played with it. When I got Wind Waker HD, I played my Wii U for many hours at a time. Before I knew it, 5 or 6 hours have gone pretty quickly. Wind Waker was a great... Read Full Review

    An excellent upgrade to a Gamecube classic

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of my favorite games from the Gamecube. I was one of the people initially turned off by the cel-shaded look but was one over once I actually played the game. The Wind Waker HD ... Read Full Review

    Terrific remake of one of the best action adventure games ever.

    Graphics - 10 I don't care too much about graphics, but by the gods this game has to be one of the prettiest things ever created. The art style is amazing, and I for one am a fan of the lighting changes. The quality isn... Read Full Review
