Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker
3 July 2010
Excerpt: The greatest thing I remember about being a child was innocence. You were kept away from the media, the internet wasn't invented, and your friends for the most part enjoyed the same things you did. Gaming was also pure back then, no one cared about bump mapping, cel shading, and all of that technical shit. All we cared about was beating Wily's second stage before having to go to bed. We wrote passwords down on napkins so we could continue our game the next day.
Excerpt: The newest installment in the Legend of Zelda series, the first for the Gamecube, has already had a long and contentious history, well before its release here in the states. When screenshots of the game's new cartoony design surfaced, many staunch fans rose up in arms over the stylistic change. Given time, many learned to accept the change.
Pros: Awesome graphics package, Great dungeons to explore, Lots of techniques and equipment to use, Tingle Tuner is a nice addition to game
Cons: In-game camera can use some work, A little on the easy side
Excerpt: The story begins unlike other Zelda games, where Link is straight-out deemed the 'chosen one'...He's just another kid enjoying himself, living peacefully with his sister and grandmother. It's Link's birthday, and as part of an island coming-of-age heritage, he is told to don the classic green suit. While enjoying his time with his sister (and to a much lesser extent, in his new uniform) they spot a huge bird carrying a girl to the summit of the island.
Excerpt: Link sails triumphantly onto the GameCube with a Stonker of a game. When young Link comes of age, He joins a band of adventurous pirates to go and rescue his kidnapped sister. However, Link finds himself tied to the destiny of the great Hero of Time, and with the help of a talking boat and his magical conductors wand, he must defend Princess Zelda from the evil of Ganondorf and protect his world from the powers of the Triforce!
Conclusion: In closing I think the game is a solid, but I found some of it lacking. It had a great engine but never really delivered the goods story wise to make me a fanatic. Remember the best graphics and music does not make the best game. Lunar Eternal Blue taught us that.
Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda series has one of the longest histories in gaming. It is also one of the cornerstones of Nintendo’s franchise collection. All this gives The Wind Waker a heck of a lot to live up to, but does it make the cut?
Summary: Despite all the positive and negative comments that have come along with this game since its first screenshots and details where announced overall it comes down to one point - this is pure Zelda. The game is true to it's roots providing fun gameplay with an interesting storyline and plenty of hidden extras to keep even the most avid player happy. The graphical style is very well suited but doesn't truly shine until it's seen in full motion.
Summary: The latest Legend of Zelda adventure begins with young Link living a peaceful life on a tiny island. One day, Link witnesses a huge, menacing bird that snatches Link's younger sister and flies away with her. Link follows in hot pursuit. His search for her sets in motion an epic adventure that will have Link sailing the high seas and searching for answers to the mystery behind her disappearance.
