Horrible

Good if you can get it to work

Maybe its just my bad luck, but I have received a total of 3 bad copies of this game from Gamefly. My console runs other games just fine, why it won't work is beyond me.

Overall, it's a good game. It is defiantly worth the rental if you enjoyed any previous Zelda games. But my overall experience with the HD remake so far has been frustrating.

Bad

Gorgeous graphics still ruined by the little thing

The WindWaker HD is one great looking game but certainly isn't Link's most enjoyable adventure. When this game first appeared over 10 years ago, Nintendo made a real hard decision to make one of their most cherished series look this way. It didn't hurt the game as it was still a visually impressive game that stood out from the rest of the games. However, the games downfall is the little things that hurt the game. Such as, tedious, long walk arounds to do one thing or unpredictable A.I, annouing sound effects.

Fair

Just play the gamecube version

This game should have stayed on the gamecube. The travel time is too long to places, there are too many times where I "set sail" for places and could leave the game alone and literally make dinner or lunch and I will still be sailing. I thought maybe for some reason they were going to make it better on the Wii U....I was wrong. If you played this on the Gamecube like I did and you are hoping sailing time has been reduced considerably.....don't waste your time like I did.
