    Awesome game, really really enjoyable

    Wind Waker was a unique and very exciting game. People will doubt Zelda the Wind Waker because of its cartoony graphics unlike OOT or MM for the N64. WW makes an outstanding impression that makes it really different from... Read Full Review

    Fun at times but far too easy.

    When I first saw the graphics for this game I was disgusted that they would go away from a look that brought Nintendo so much success. Now that I have played it, I can make some observations. First, the game is fun. I... Read Full Review

    Don't let the childish theme fool you.

    Why, exactly, did everyone give this game a great score?

    No, no, no, no, no. Enough. The hype for this game is impossible to explain. How is it that so many people think that floating around an ocean for three quarters of the game is “fun and addictive?” How is it that so ... Read Full Review
