Critically Sane: "It’s funny to think that a decade ago, fans were wary about Zelda’s GameCube debut due to Wind Waker’s (at the time) unique, cel-shaded art style. Now, its art style is one of its most treasured assets. The game? A beloved, modern classic. Wind Waker is widely regarded as one of the best 3D Zeldas. Happily, the game has improved with age, and Wind Waker HD tweaks the game to offer a superior version of what was already great. If you went in knowing nothing, you might declare it the best game of the year."
