Now, if you are like me, you were probably thinking this wouldn't be a very good game, you were thinking that this is the end of Zelda. This game is the perfect example of "Don't choose a book by its cover".....

You start out as a boy who lives with his sister Aryll, and his grandmother on Outset Island. In the beginning of the game, Aryll gets kidnapped by a large bird and you set out on a pirate ship to search for her. Along the way, you will acquire different items, meet new people, and even stop to play a minigame or two. You will also see some of the enemies from OOT, including Redeads, Darknuts, Moblins and even Ganondorf.

The over-all gameplay really surprized me because it actually wasn't much different from the gameplay in OOT or MM for the N64. You still have the unique lock on ability, which makes fighting MUCH easier. After hearing the awesome story of the game and after you start playing it and getting into it, you wont even remember you are playing a toon-shading type Zelda game. This game brought back so many memories from the old Zelda games, with the same sounds, music and the same great story. I would recommend any Zelda fan to rent and/or buy this game, you WONT regret it.

Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker, is the most recent totally new adventure for the Nintendo Gamecube. This was my first Zelda game, and only 2 days after I first played it I bought it!

Good: A lot to do, very addicting, nice twist in the story.

Bad: Can get confusing at times.

The Wind Waker features a twist in not only graphics but also in the story of Zelda itself.
The graphics are much more funny, but are very detailed. The gameplay it's self is so great that it is incredible that they could fit so much stuff on such a small disc.

At times you will feel frustrated because you overlook things that don't seem very important, but they are.

Overall, you will play this game for hours, and in some cases a whole night! It's just that good.
TWO THUMBS UP TO ZELDA THE WIND WAKER!!!
