The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U Bundle Review

TechRaptor - Nintendo has had nearly a year’s head start over Sony and Microsoft in releasing their next-generation console. Since it’s launch, the Wii U has not sold very well, due to a combination of bad marketing from Nintendo, failing to differentiate as a seperate console from the original Wii rather than just a tablet accessory, a lack of original games, and developer comments being lukewarm. Nintendo consoles are known for Nintendo’s excellent first-party lineup, but is The Wind Waker HD worth braving the sea of the Wii U for? (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U) 60/100

I love it when Nintendo gets dragged into the "competition" scenario .

ha haaa . .

how suspicious . (;

You guys didn't read the article at all, not surprised nintendo fanboys payed no attention to what he said and jumped to defend the horrible product WiiU. Everything he said about it was true. Also he gave Wind Waker 5 of 5. But how on earth is such an old game supposed to excite me? I beat that game like 11 years ago and its linear so I def don't want to play it again. Zelda games have zero replay because its easy to beat them 100% the first time, (MMask was kind ofdifferent on that front). But all Nintendo wants me to do is remember what they did. But if you have been gaming hard since 1992(age 6) nintendo is boring. Of all the old gaming series that are still around; Fallout, GTA, MGS, Elder Scrolls, COD, Battlefield, Simcity, StarCraft,etc they all have upgraded and got more detailed, except for all the Nintendo stuff still the same. Slight differences from the same games I played as a small child. Here is a good comparison: I still watch cartoons but not the Magic School bus, because its time for new stuff.

Is this a bundle review or is this a sales contest?

60/100 for a free game, free online, Miiverse, and more.

I smell a drone behind the scenes.

Oh haven't you heard? Everything is a sales contest and spec sheets comparison these days! How dare we have fun with our "toys". It is only about hating the other side and trying to get as many middle people with you as possible.

It's like politics only then about toys! Remember: Microsoft X-Bots and Sony Pony's believe that Fun comes in limited quantities and once you used it it is gone forever! The silly notion that Nintendo has with "Fun gets multiplied once used by more people!" is just ludicrous!

It's far more fun to post Memes and compare spec sheets then it is to actually enjoy a fun game ;). LE GASP I USED FUN! Now I should be punished! In the current recession the "f resource" is even more precious then anything else in this world. So here have a specsheet of the Wii U and stand in line to compare it to the others. All games will be stored in Fort Knoxx so their "f resources" won't run out. We just can't risk that ;).

TheDivine  +   834d ago
Lol. This is the best console bundle in a very very long time, and one of the coolest limited edition console also. I'd buy this before an xbone or ps4 personally. Too damn awesome to pass up and its a steal at 300.

6 out of 10 for a good relatively powerful system with a dream HD remake??


i believe the media is against Nintendo because Nintendo refuse to follow their agenda (behind the scenes deals/pays)
for we are many  +   833d ago
For 300 $ mind you!

Reletively powered from what ive seen so far wiiu graphically is winning end of games like Bayonetta2,MK8,X,Pikimin,Smash ,ect ect all look amazing and run in 1080p NATIVE that alone means wiiu has power in the right places ie GRAPHICS....all the extra mhz and ghz and system RAM on 1 and ps4 mean shit prime example the 1 only does 720p native on ghosts ?????? and it looks a little better than previous versions of COD ???????

Bayontta2 on wiiu is more hectic than any game ive ever seen ultra fast,and is up their with the bes when you look at whats happening on screen at any given moment and with co-op all running at Full HD 60fps is more proof of real power than any game ive seen for a nextgen console.......

$300 and you get a free game and a digital download of a wicked encyclopedia of all things Zelda?? Not to mention you get a slick custom gamepad that unless you are willing to fork out over $200 on ebay, you can't get your hands on?

That is a wicked deal, don't know how you arise at 6/10, unless you just don't like the Wii U to begin with.

If Nintendo truly cared for their consumers they would drop the Wiiu and begin a new machine. Don't tell me consumers don't care about graphics and powerful consoles because if they didn't they'd still be playing the original 8bit system. At this point Nintendo is hanging by a thread and I seriously doubt they can turn the Wiiu into a profit. Time to fire some people and go back to the drawing boards. I have even considered buying a Wiiu especially after they announced the price drop and the Mario bundle, but after some recent research it would be a waste of time. Nintendo is soon to join the ranks of great companies that once filled my childhood Sega and Atari. To me this could have easily been avoided by just not being stubborn.
Neonridr  +   833d ago
good thing you aren't a business analyst..

Nintendo will be around for years and years to come..

If consumers cared about graphics and powerful consoles then the Vita would be outselling the 3DS. But guess what, it isn't. Wanna know why? Because there are more fun games to play on the 3DS.

The Wii U is a more than capable machine. Heck the 360 and PS3 were still amazing us right up to a few months ago, and the Wii U is definitely more powerful than those machines. Sure it's not as powerful as the PS4 or XB1, but it doesn't need to be.
unjust75  +   833d ago
You are lost. Keep telling yourself that everything will be ok.
Neonridr  +   833d ago
lol, did you not just state that consumers do care about power and graphics??

I said if that was the case then the Vita would be king. It's not. Because graphics are not everything.

Are you saying that I am lying? Keep deluding yourself then.
unjust75  +   833d ago
I'm not even talking about handhelds. It also took a long while for 3ds to take off.
Neonridr  +   833d ago
It took 6 months, when the price cut came into effect. That and Mario 3D Land launched. Sales took off, and the rest is history.
unjust75  +   833d ago
Exactly, history. You as a fan should be upset about Nintendo operations. I'm not trying to say that their products suck. I'm mad because they don't get the big picture.
Neonridr  +   833d ago
I can agree with you there my friend. I love Nintendo, but a lot of their decisions lately has me scratching my head. If I didn't love their 1st party titles so much, I wouldn't be supporting their consoles...

oh well.
triforce79  +   833d ago
3DS graphics at best are very close if not better than vita's......not a good comparison..
SpiralTear  +   833d ago
"If Nintendo truly cared for their consumers they would drop the Wiiu and begin a new machine."

Wouldn't starting a new system be a big middle finger to the people who already bought a Wii U? I think caring for your consumers involves improving and justifying the purchase of a console that's already out, not dropping support of something that consumers (and developers) have already put work and funds into.

You are an idiot.. Nintendo Dominates the US, Asian and European market in a number of ways.. The 3DS which is definitely inferior to the Vita yet it has far outpaced it.. To a major extent the ps3, 360 and even Nintendo's own Wii u has to compete with the success of the 3DS.

The Wii U system is a very capable system and can definitely compete with the ps4 and xbone.. Nintendo is going no where.. From a graphical perspective just look at the latest Assassins Creed IV, Batman Origins and Deus Ex, which all run better on the Wii U when compared to the PS3/360.. Monilith Soft's X and Bayonetta look amazing and "Call of Duty Ghost" Runs at a native 1080p on Wii U as opposed to the 720p upscaled version of xbone.

I own a Wii U, PS3 80gb, PS vita and soon the PS4.. I have well over a 100 games and my most prized game is Xenoblade which is a Wii Game!
