Pros Very fun combat, huge water world to explore, lots of secrets, innovative gameplay,
Cons Can't swim much, obnoxious baton, fetch quests, too much like Costner's...
Recommended it? Yes

I've played and finished nearly all the Zelda games both in handheld and console, but I never got to the Wind Waker for the specific reason that it seemed too "kiddy" when it came out. Hell, it still does but I don't really care much anymore as long as the game is playable. It's the same thing that... Read full review »

Pros Great story, with some great characters and gameplay.
Cons The graphics are childish and simple.
Recommended it? Yes

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for GameCube is one of the best games I have ever played in all my gaming career. Even though it is a few years old now, I still play it with as enthusiasm as I did when I first bought the game.

The graphics are bright and childish, yet the story,... Read full review »

The Legend of Zelda: the Windwaker for Gamecube is a new type of Zelda. This is one of my personal favorite because of the animation and graphics. While some may argue that the cartoon graphics in this game were a very bad idea, I, for one, thought it was cool, refreshing and at times, even a bit... Read full review »

Pros A brand new look for Link bringing partly a different Story.
Cons Sailing and Treasure Charts.
Recommended it? Yes

Toon-Link's Adventure began back in 2003 on the Nintendo Gamecube completely owning the underrated title "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker". I'm sure this Game would have gotten a load more of fans if Nintendo didn't go with Link's New Cartoony Childish look. That really turned people off... Read full review »

Pros Great Sound, Challenging, Graphics
Recommended it? Yes

I can't really explain it when I'm playing this game.  It just takes the worry of the world away.  Maybe it's because I'm a stay at home mom, but it's really cool and fun.  The different bosses you fight makes the game just that much more interesting.  I love all Zelda... Read full review »

Pros oceanic adventure, vibrant islands, toon-shading,
Cons sailing gets boring, triforce quest, recycle dungeons
Recommended it? Yes

Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker stirred much controversy by its graphic style change to cel-shading making the game look like a cartoon. It proved that EAD knew what they're doing, as this style allowed for a more expressive Link. Today the game is herald for its impressive visualsand beautiful... Read full review »

Look beyond the cel-shaded, cartoon-like graphics and you will find a brilliant and vibrant game that makes the Zelda series proud. With a vibrant atmosphere and intuitive gameplay, Wind Waker is a memorable game that is more than worth an inspection.

Pros Fantastic art and animation, great music, and awesome gameplay
Cons Sailing gets a little repetitive
Recommended it? Yes

The Wind Waker stirred up a lot of controversy at it's inception. The game suddenly had a more "kiddie" feel to it then it's ever have, and Link's world was piratically underwater. Sometimes making so many drastic changes can be suicide for a franchise (just look at what they did with Final Fight... Read full review »

I've always been a fan of The Legend of Zelda games. My first encounter with the game was with The Ocarina of Time, it was an awesome game with many new features that had never been seen before.

Pros Beautiful cell shading and a great story however basic it may be.
Cons the only possible problem anyone could have with this game is that it's to short.
Recommended it? Yes

This is my favorite legend of zelda game of all time. It far outranks any of the others including twilight princess. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is smooth and fluent. Any complaints about the graphics or that there is too much of the game spent in the boat is completely ridiculous. Read full review »

I remember back in '02 and '03 when there was footage and shots of a realistic-looking Link and Ganondorf having a 1-on-1 sword battle to the death. Then, when everyone was looking forward to it, Nintendo takes it back and redesigns the graphics using cel shading. This gave the demo videos and... Read full review »

This game is great. The beginning of the game is kind of corny because you have to go around on this island and get a sword and talk to everyone. But before long you start combat.
