Wind Waker

Posted: June 2nd, 2009, 12:57 am
In 1987, Nintendo came out with one of the best video game series to date. I have played just about all the games in the series even the crap barrel Zelda CD-i games. The series has evolved quite a bit as well. Ranging from 8-bit, 16-bit, 32bit (if u count the CD-i games which I don't ) 64-bit and pushing game cube graphics ti its limits. But what I'm going to review is the one of the best in the series, the Wind Waker. Now coming into this game wasn't expecting much. Backing up to 2003. My cousin pre ordered it so he gave me the game cube port of the ocarina of time (my favorite in the series) so I really didn't get a chance to play it. Now back to the present. The wind waker starts out 100 years after the events of the ocarina of time. I like that it follows a story line (compared to the whole series ). Now when I first got it, I wasn't expecting it to have a whole lot offer. Instead it offers the same challenge as the ocarina of time. Its also a "new link" not the same character in ocarina and majoras mask. I like the direction that they moved in, making it cell shaded graphics.The game play is great. Fighting moster with swords never gets old. They bring back the master sword, boomerang, bombs, and some new items in the game which make fun to play. In the game youll be doing ALOT of sailing and map charting. You cn even find sunkin treasure. As far as combat with enemies an bosses its pretty good. Its a little shorter than previous Zelda games but a worthy purchase. To some the sailing to get around to places might be a little repetitive but I fell its something new. Over all I give it 4 stars of 5
