The Wind Waker HD is a Better Remake Than Ocarina of Time 3D

GenGAME writes: "Ocarina of Time is my top game ever, and its 3DS remake, which introduced graphical overhauls, a touch-based menu and inventory selection system, and added gyroscope controls for aiming, is my preferred version. Technically that makes Ocarina of Time 3D my favorite game of all time.

"And yet, having seen and played what the Zelda team has to offer The Wind Waker with The Wind Waker HD, I’m convinced so far that it’s actually going to turn out the better remake" (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U)

This preview gets me even more pumped up for this game. I hope in the end that they do put in the dungeons that were removed in the original.

Aonuma stated the dungeons they removed were used in other zelda games. So he isnt using them in ww hd.

It does look really good in HD.

It is the same game, Ocarina of time was a remake, this shit is just a remaster in HD with wii U control support. I passed this game on the gamecube. I don't see the point of playing the wii U version of the same game. Nintendo needs to stop being lazy and make a Zelda designed specifically for the Wii U.

That's the thing though, Ocarina offered better graphics... and then the same features TWW HD is offering. TWW HD is offering even more new features and adjustments to the main experience... and unlike OoT, it actually needs them.

You would know that they already are so no they arent being lazy good sir.

So you think other developers that do the same thing are lazy as well? Also if you have a playstation or x box you have not touched a remade game?

Well naturally, you don't have the handicap of 3d holding you back. However both games are great and I can't wait to see this in HD on my tv. This will be a nice time killer until they show Zelda HD for the first time. I know they said their using this game to test gamepad ideas for the new Zelda and I'm fine with that. That's what they did with the port of twilight princess to the wii for skyward sword and that game came out amazing so I'm now worried at all.

OoT3D is more of a remake than Wind Waker. They redid many textures, models, and some animation for OoT3D, while WWHD is basically an HD port with some enhancements. Both are not ground-up remakes, though. They clearly use the original programming and physics.

There's really no need for a boss-refight mode, as the final dungeons of the game basically has something very similar to that. The lack of a Master Quest and the exclusion of the Tingle Tuner (albeit to a much lesser extent for me) are disappointing, though. But the improvements on disaplay far outwieigh the bad, all things considered.

I agree, I played the wind waker on the best buy demo, and I whole heartily agree... I thought Ocarina of time lost something when going from the big screen to the small screen.the 3ds controls are good, but N64 version worked great with the N64 controller, I thought the controls on the 3ds, where a little more limited compared to the N64 version.. but the windwaker, now worked great with the game cube controller, but I think the wii u game pad, makes this game much better... just my opinion.
