Excerpt: I have not seen a better SD to HD transition than that of The Wind Waker. On top of the beautiful way this game looks in high resolution, Nintendo has tweaked an already brilliant game just a little to make it even better. The fabled Legend of Zelda series is nothing if not able to stand the test of time, and if you have never played The Wind Waker you owe it to yourself to try.

Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (Nintendo Wii U)

Summary: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD sails its way onto the Wii U, making itself into the definitive version of the game to play. The presentation is top notch, and the Swift Sail makes the traveling less of a chore and more of an invitation to explore. Miiverse integration makes for a welcome addition and while I would have preferred a retooled version of the Tingle Tuner, it was certainly not worth keeping in its current form.
Summary: Parents need to know that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is a cartoonish action game with a bit of light role-playing thrown in. The game's hero, Link, is a young boy who enjoys helping those in need and is particularly concerned with rescuing his little sister from some evil kidnappers.
Summary: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is easily my favorite Zelda game in the series -- a not altogether uncommon opinion, now that many years have passed and most people grew the Hell up over the "kiddie" visuals. One of the most original, charming, and funny entries in the series, The Wind Waker was different enough to truly stand out, but smartly retained everything that makes a Zelda game what it is.
