Exophase: "As you play Windbound, you’ll notice that while there may be some Wind Waker influence present, the game is able to stand on its own thanks to its ambitious design direction."

That's a shame, really. I greatly enjoyed my time with the game. And with the exception of a few minor issues -- which I discuss in my review -- I thought it was a great survival action-adventure experience. Granted I can't speak regarding any issues the PC version may have, but on PS4 the game performed well and not once did I encounter any bugs. There's a little bit of jank in the platforming but nothing crazy.
Windbound definitely tries to do a lot, so there's a bit of give-and-take -- one example being that the combat is fairly simple, which I didn't mind, while the crafting is intuitive yet deep. For me, the high level of ambition behind the game paid off.
I was interested in the game to, when I read it was somewhat like The Wind Waker. Maybe it was rushed for the PC and not optimized that well at all.
