An okay game for children

experienced video game player , GameStop
4 May 2009
  • Summary: This game is not that exciting, and I think it is for children. When I got the game, I was really excited, but when I started the game, I got bord easly. When you start the game, you are bord to death by a terrible little movie. When you start playing in the game, you are at a beach and you have to visit the boys grandmother in a cottage on the island.

It's not just the graphics

Beechy, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: [....] This just doesn't do it for me. The cel shading is ok, don't get me wrong my bad score isn't for the graphics. Although the cel shading does get rid of the previous zelda games mood/atmosphere. It handles like the other games, but what I hate about is the playability. It is easy then you enter another room and you can't get across to the door without dieing. I also hate the plot as it it isn't as dark as other zeldas. It just doesn't feel like zelda to me.

To Buy Or Not To Buy!!!!!!!

  • Summary: This is a great letdown in the graphic quality of this game, it does make the movements more flowing and precise but I would prefer real life graphics over cartoon anyday. As for the story itself it is a great sucsess it is fun to play and not too complicated the best thing about this game is using your boat to travel around the islands.

Nice Anime, Bad Game

C. M. Briant "mrskeletor", Amazon
21 April 2006
  • Summary: I brought this game when it first came out in May 2003. When I saw the game demoed in my local Games shop, I was a little disappointed after finishing the game. Most people's complaint is that the Anime style graphics lets down the game in a big way making it too "childish". In my opinion this is the best feature of the game. The animation is beautiful and it plays just like your favorite Japanime movie.

"Zelda" series suffers from sea sickness

Daniel Arnold "juggernaut217", Amazon
14 January 2006
  • Summary: In little more than ten years Nintendo have gone from being market leaders in game consoles to being a distant third behind two companies - Sony and Microsoft - who were never even involved in those heady days. Although Nintendo's "quirky" hardware design (eg carts rather than discs on N64s; no DVD players on Gamecubes) have played their part,there is no escaping the fact that Nintendo's own games - the quality of which helped shift millions of NESs ans SNESs, and saved...

Unsurpassed in places, but ultimately flawed.

M. Gardner "Afro Matt", amazon.co.uk
17 March 2004
  • Summary: I love the Zelda games, and anyone who can strongly and seriously dispute that Ocarina of Time wasn't the greatest game of all time with me deserves respect. Therefore it was with great anticipation and impatience that I pre-ordered The Wind Waker - this is why I bought a Gamecube, to enjoy the exclusive series such as Mario and Zelda.
