Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (This Is My Joystick)

Where the old top-down games and even Ocarina of Time sought to put you in the thick of the action straight away, Wind Waker takes a slightly slower approach to its opening. After waking from his typical slumber, this generation’s Link spends a short time getting to know the inhabitants of the equally sleepy Outset Island.

It’s very apparent here that he’s not an outcast as OOT’s Link was, but a loved member of his community, no more so than by his Grandmother and little sister Aryll. This simple framing gives you something no Zelda had provided before; a genuine sense of loss when his sister is kidnapped by a gigantic menacing bird. (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U) -
