Brief Game Reviews: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

This has become my favorite Zelda game.

It certainly is the best looking Zelda game, with it’s distinctive cel-shaded art style. The visuals are great everywhere you go. I’m not sure exactly what changed in the HD remaster, but I’m glad to have it in HD and widescreen.

The dungeons are clever but not annoying. The music feels Zelda-y. Perhaps most notable outside of graphics is the English translation. It’s really well done. It’s perhaps second to Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door as far as best translated games I’ve played.

Spoiler: The Triforce Chard fetch quests were annoying. But, on an unrelated note, it was cool how the music paid tribute to previous Zelda games.
5/5
