Is TP that revered among Zelda fans? I thought people didn't care for it.

I liked it better than Skyward Sword, but nowhere near as much as Wind Waker. 

I loved the art style of that one, and I didn't leave all the collecting that was a chore for most people until the end.

OTOH, I would be willing to give TP another shot if they did update it.

The funny thing is that I don't remember anybody saying they liked Wind Waker back when it was released.  I just remember all the criticisms over the art style and gameplay stuff.

I loved TP. I thought and think WW is great, but it had some glaring flaws, especially the excessive sailing and triforce hunt. TP I think is on par with Ocarina of Time (I probably prefer TP but OoT was more original and TP to a great extent mimics it). I have still never played Skyward Sword since I have heard so many negatives about the controls.

Exactly and that is why I scratch my head when suddenly it is beloved by everyone.  I remember being one of the few back then who thought the art style was awesome.  Everyone else wanted realistic Link, which they got in TP.

Wow I think is possibly one of the silliest things I've ever read on this forum.

The love comes from nostalgia, and a little bit of hipsterness, also good things get better with age, oh and it being a solid game, and then there were the expectations that people had for the first Gamecube Zelda, when they first saw this they didn't know how to respond. As well, people are capable of looking back at stuff and realizing that things weren't as bad as they thought some ten years ago. It's amazing how opinions can change.

I've always loved WW, possibly my favorite Zelda title. It had it's moments, the map grind all but killed the game, but it has charm by the buckets full.

There is a funny gif out there about how Shigeru is confused, people told him they wanted something different with Zelda so he made WW, and fans were pissed, then they said they wanted realistic Zelda, and he brought them TWP, and fans were pissed, so he mashed it together and made Skyward Sword, and the fans were pissed. The point is that a lot of Zelda fans are dumb.

Apart from the ratio,i like the original better,the colours are more fitting to what we signed up for in the first place,a Cel Shaded Zelda

I mean when you see him on the sea the clouds look great,but....the original look of the clouds i think fit better

In the end i still want to play this,but feel i am not missing out too much by still having my original WW

I wasn't knocking Wind Waker, it's my favorite Zelda title as well. But I think it's getting more attention than it would if the Wii U had even a marginally respectable software library.

I'm playing this now and it's fantastic.  The graphics are beautiful and smooth and I love the Wii U screen for the inventory and map.  Doesn't hurt that it was one of my favorite Gamecube games and one of my favorite Zeldas.

Any chance someone who DIDNíT play the original could post some impressions?  Despite my best efforts I have never been able to get into a 3D Zelda game (have tried Ocarina on 3Ds and Twilight Princess on Wii).  I love the 2D top down versions but something about the third dimension doesnít gel with me.

For what it's worth, I also have a harder time getting into the 3D Zeldas compared to the 2D ones.  I think I've gotten to the end of every 2D Zelda I've played, and I've played almost every 2D Zelda, but I don't think I've made it all the way to the end of any 3D Zelda...

...except for Wind Waker.

For me it was this and the Gamecube version of Ocarina of Time.

Switching between this and GTA V......

I played till I met the ship and stopped there.  The graphics are amazing and it's probably the most colorful game I've played.  The game pad works great and not having to open a menu for your inventory is awesome and a feature I wish the Xbox One and Ps4 have somehow.

I sort of feel the same way and if I did own a WiiU I'm not sure I'd splurge for the remake. That said, I initially felt the same way about the Ocarina of Time remake for the Gamecube, which really only marginally increased the resolution and added Dolby Prologic Surround. But in the end I was glad to have it and appreciated the minor changes.

Donít forget about the digital shop money back program.  I may end up taking a chance on this just because I have $10 in credit from that.  I have purchased most of my games for the WiiU on the eShop just so I donít have to worry about switching disks.

The wife and I played this alternating all weekend up to the deku tree. Each on our own save file. And the game is awesome. Even better than I remembered. The swift sail is boss. The updated textures and colors and overal graphics package is better. All of the music was rescored and is higher quality. The fact that they can load the entire ocean at once is awesome, you can see much farther out on the horizon. I cannot stop humming the sailing theme.

The miiverse/tingle bottle integration is awesome. Better pictobox with selifes is hilarious. I think this Zelda controls so well it makes you wonder why they bothered forcing waggle.

Definitley worth the eshop purchase for the 10 percent back. I have now gone digital on this, W101, super luigi dlc, and a bunch of other small games, several of which I got free because of the digital deluxe points.

I had forgotten about that, but really I'm not compelled to buy digital games on this console since it only has 32GB of storage on board.  I feel like I'd be constantly trying to clear space like back in the original 360 days and I'd rather not go back to that.

You can hook up an external USB drive if you'd like as well.  But also, with your current attitude, you'd never fill up any space because you're worried that eventually you'd fill up all the space. Tongue
