Sailing is tedious now, but on these days was an incredible experience, and overall is one of the best Zelda ever, this graphics never get old and has the better story of the saga imo. One of the best games ever 9.7/10

8.5/10 Great Zelda game but the sailing is long and tedious and the tri force quest at the end ruined it for me

This ZELDA game is pretty good, but it's not my favorite; TP, OoT, and ALTTP all surpass this IMO.

Way better the TP. This is memorable this has style and wont age. This has a warm flair and is epic. TP is boring empty soulless (bugs no holes useless musc/houling useless Epona translation errors etc and the so called epic superior old inhabitans of hyrule that now life in the sky etc are no angel like creatures they are ugly chickens with human heads LOL design fail)

'the GameCube never managed to pick up the kind of market share previous generations of Nintendo hardware enjoyed, and Wind Waker sold only 2.2 million copies.'

Can anyone tell me if that's true or not? I'd be very disappointed to learn that it's overtracked by that much.

The first Zelda where overworld and dungeons intertwine. Graphics, controls, dungeons, music, atmosphere and story are fantastic, but it has one major flaw: All things ocean related (sailing / wind direction / treasure maps) are tedious and feel forced.
Still a great game, just not my favourite Zelda.

Yeah I heard the same thing about them cutting out levels to get the game out on time. Such a shame because the only problem I have with this game was that it was so short. Apart from that, it's easily my favourite Zelda.

I suppose that's the best thing about having Nintendo on top again, they don't feel pressured to rush their games out any more, now they're taking their time on games again (like SSBB) and they should hopefully be all the better for it.

Actually, I think that despite not having realistically styled graphics, the game feels more "alive" than Twilight Princess. That style fits it very good. You could make cry that girl on your hometown :P

But I think the game is kinda short, and it had a bit too much filler. But still a 9/10

Great game, you do forget about the cel shaded graphics rather quickly. Definitely not the best Zelda, but not the worst either. I guess I miss the land, it's all water. Seems like there's hardly any dungeons/levels in this game. I read somewhere I remember, a few years back or more, that the creators actually cut a few levels in this game to get the game out. What a shame. 8/10

8.09? Too high for a game that almost killed the zelda series. It introduced horrible fetch quests in a futile attempt to lengthen it's pathetic length.

Sure it's a great adventure game. Relative to most adventure games, it deserves an 8/10. Relative to masterpieces like Majora's mask, Ocarina, and Twilight, it hardly deserves a 5.

I am still playing through this... I haven't played Ocarina of time or Majoras mask yet, but I have played Twilight Princess. I think Twilight Princess is considerably better than this game, but I LOVE the graphics in wind waker. I also like how the game starts off, the pace is nice and quick. Then I start having to sail around for what feels like forever... and the pace is to slow. I do like to weapons in this game better than Twilight Princess...
