I have played every Zelda since I was in Kindergarten playing the original after school. All the iterations had their ups and downs, but I enjoyed them all.
Until this one.
It's boring. It's entirely too easy. You play for hours until you finally get to the first dungeon and kill something, which takes no real skill, just mashing the red button will do fine.
I hate the cell shading, but friends told me to give it a shot, so I did. Like the graphics or not, the gameplay is lousy.
Maybe it's because I don't have the patience now that I did when I was younger, but this game did nothing for me except eat up a few yawning hours of my time. The first island you wander around for an hour talking to every person while trying to find a sail. They all talk for paragraphs at a time, causing you to hit A over and over and over to get through what they're saying- 10% of which is actually relevant to the story.
Maybe it's because I didn't finish the game or get to some of the really great parts, but I clocked in 10 hours or so and was still bored, so that was enough for me.

I hate stupid story of Wind Waker! It all starts out with sombodys birthday that leads to clothes, that leads to some girl stuck in a tree....from there it all goes down! He just had to save her! (I wish he left her in that tree to hang forever!) Tetra was her name...I think. It was her that caused that dumb monster to take his sister. (So not his sister!) The wind didn't really blow me away. I just got inside so it would die down. (Wish Tetra would die!) I don't like how everything is so...cartoon. Why can't he look like a 17 year old like in Twilight Princess? I Wonder why he skips from a kid to 17. (Mystery!) (This will bug me for years!)
