GameDynamo - "No matter when you experienced the series for the first time, most of you have either played or heard of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. At the time of its first reveal, it was a controversial mess among the fans. With its bizarre step towards cel-shaded graphics, its emphasis on exploration and sailing, and an overall strangeness of design for the Zelda series, many fans were befuddled. While The Wind Waker received near perfect scores from most reviewers at its release, it took some time for the game to warm up to the old time Zelda fans and gamers in general. The Wind Waker these days is held in fairly high regard, and while it's probably not quite the black sheep of the series (that would be held for Majora's Mask), it's more or less the free-spirited, artsy, fun loving iteration of The Legend of Zelda."
