The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker

The Windwaker will never be held in the same regard as say the Ocarina of Time or most recently Twilight Princess. But for some reason it remains my favourite Zelda game.

From the moment I picked it up, witnessed the cartoony graphics and the incredible storyline I fell in love with it. Everything was so full of charm and character. It wasn't easy either.

From when Link first wakes up in the watch tower on his home island, through to meeting the Deku Tree and then to finally defeating Ganon I just couldn't get enough and have completed the game several times over.

I think the whole sailing the ocean thing was what I loved about the game the best, it really was like an adventure and it is part of the fact why I love the Phantom Hourglass so much.

Anyway, credit to Nintendo for such a great game, and although others may think differently, I hope the cartoon graphics make a return someday on a home console.

I completely agree. It's one of my favorite (if not, my favorite) Zelda game.

Definitely one of the best. A lot of people complain about the cartoony graphics but I can't imagine the game with realistic graphics, it just wouldn't work.

I loved the graphics but couldn't stand the game. I just couldn't. I consider myself a pretty big Zelda fan, but sailing the ocean was just atrocious for me. I felt like I had no idea where I was going, and after the first time I got lost, I put it down and never picked it up again.

*sigh* Poor, poor op98x... Have you ever played it since? Because I definitely recommend you do so.

I'll probably give it another go at one point. I just don't like the idea of sailing around all over the place with a shoddy map. I like to know where I'm going, not spend half an hour sailing around hoping I find it. And since I refuse to read walkthroughs, I get frustrated.

There is a map on the game, that tells you were to go you know. You don't have to sail around aimlessly hoping to find it.

Windwaker was a alright game. but it wasnt that good.

Yes but don't you have to find this map?

Saru786 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

The graphics was one of the reasons I despised this game. The other being to sail the ocean with or without a map. They had turned my favorite series into a kiddish piece of bull****. Atleast, Twilight isn't cartoonish. -.-"

2nd worst game I've played in the Zelda Series.
