There is only one reason not to like this game.

And that is the constant baby-sitting of the wind while sailing the open seas. Other then that, there is no excuse to not like this game. I've heard that some hard-core Zelda fan's don't like Toon Link but if they let that bother them so much that they don't even play Wind Waker, they are missing out on a awesome game.
There are so many fun mini-quest's in this game to pass the time while you avoid going to the next dungeon.
Or, you could just stick to the main objective of the game and go from dungeon to dungeon defeating bosses and such. This is a great game for first-time zelda players or a long-time players (such as myself). The items you get along the way are so much fun...Especially the picto-box (I can't stop taking pictures of the in-game characters and making them into figurines!!) I've had such a blast with this game and would recommend it to anyone who is debating renting/buying it or not.

This game is just amazing. For me, this game has always been so adventurous! With 40+ islands to explore, and loads of side-quests, this game will take a long time finish 100%!

Many people hate the graphics, but I think there great! If your a classic zelda fan, then you'd probably would prefer more realistic graphics. This game also has some puzzling dungeons. You'll encounter enemies from ChuChus, to the horrifying ReDeads! (Which sound like elephants screaming in pain for some odd reason...) The sidequests are also fun and hard (that's what she said!). If you're having trouble, you also can connect a gameboy to your console and call Tingle! You can have your kids, friends, etc., to help you out by playing as Tingle!

The only problems I found with this game was the sailing, but later in the game, you get the ability to warp to various islands, making sailing MUCH MUCH easier! If you have trouble with any dungeons, you can check out some Let's plays or walkthroughs on youtube, ign. etc. (I REALLY recommend Chuggaaconroy's Wind waker LP for help)

Good things:
Superb adventuring
Fun side-quests
Funny at some points
Good storyline
Challenging dungeons
Tingle Turner

Bad things:
Repetitive sailing
Frustrating to figure out what to do at times

So I give this a 10/10 I REALLY recommend you getting this game, it's completely worth it.
