My first actual Legend of Zelda experience in 3D

I've played some of Legend of Zelda games on Gameboy and Gameboy advance. They were so much fun to play. When I played this game, Windwaker, it was even more fun than ever before. My most favorite weapon of all is the Hero's bow. I like to have the urge to shoot arrows with a bow. I really like how you can sail with your own boat anywhere on the map. It seems there's a lot of islands out there to explore and it's interesting to play this game because there's seem to be a lot of things to do. Honestly, I didn't do much of the sidequests because I don't like doing sidequest that much. So I just get it over with and went to rescue his sister and defeat Ganon. It is a no brainer when you fight the bosses because when you get a new weapon, that's the weapon that will help you defeat the boss, so keep that in mind.

Pros:
I like the cel shading graphics and the main character, Link looks like a comical character but like Yoda says, "Size matters not". Gameplay is quite satisfying to use. Really simple and it can be quite fast to learn from. Enemies are fun to kill. When there's a will, there's a way.

Cons:
Targeting enemies can be quite a hassle. If I was fighting multiple enemies, I had a hard time targeting who I wanted to target. If only if there's a button to select any enemy you want to fight but hey the targeting is okay. Any other cons? Not that I know of.

Final thoughts:
Play this game. Rent or own. If you are a Zelda fan, this can be a really good game for your Zelda collection. If you're looking for an action/adventure plus puzzle yet so simple to do so, then this is also for you. Other than that, just play it because it's a really awesome game.

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.
