Thought this was a stupid remake of a game and had the exact same things. That is what I got wrong. The sailing is 5x faster and the triforce hunt is shorter. This is a good game and way better than the first Wind Waker.

This is hands down the best HD remake of any game I have ever played. The cell shaded goodness will warm your heart. The Wii U gamepad support for this game is great and the game sound is stellar. The original game was actually pretty hard to beat due to the slow sailing and finding of the Triforce shards. But they fixed this problem and I was actually able to beat this game for the first time since I played it on the Gamecube. Awesome game you won't be disappointed. I have noticed all the 10 this game has. It was very close but I did not achieve "total immersion" for me to give it a 10.

Maybe its fun for fans of the original but as a new game the graphics were well below par. In fact videos of the old game show they barely improved on anything. I guess its just a nostalgic trip for Zelda fans but as my first Zelda it got boring quickly and my son felt the same way too. Very disappointing.
