Geron Roper of SpawnFirst reviews The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on the Wii U: "The Wind Waker epitomizes 3D adventure gameplay, and the HD version makes it even better. Every single thing in the game is fun to do, and there’s never a moment that feels dull or tedious. For those that haven’t played the game yet, this is the way to do it. For those that have, returning to the Great Sea has never been better. Highly recommended."
