Just like Silent Hill 2 HD did?

To be fair, Silent Hill 2 looked 2 times better for the things it did keep intact.

When you play the GCN and Wii U version of WW side by side on the exact same HDTV, the Wii U one is going to look better.
Using emulators and non-HD videos as "proof" isn't really a good argument to make.

IGN gave it a 9.8 which is actually higher than the original.

@CapnPancakes That's pretty good for a $50 game that already came out 10 years ago. I'd take it as a compliment to how well Wind Waker has aged. The reviewer articulated why he gave it the score he gave it. I don't see the problem.

@casltehominid99 Interesting... Considering how little it adds, and how its a full price game, that's kind of surprising. Usually on review sites, standards change and get higher over the years.

Best thread ever
Feel free to add me on Miiverse or PSN.

I think if people 10 years ago appreciated the toony graphics back then and didn't hate the game from first glance because of it, it would've scored a 10 so since cartoony graphics are more common nowadays and accepted it seems to have scored higher

I don't like complaining about people giving a game a good review, but giving an improved Wind Waker anything less than a 9 is just wrong.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I was browsing the eShop page for the billionth time and it now lists that u can use the Original Wii Pro Controller as long as it is connected to a Wii Remote.

@kkslider5552000 No it's not, if anything the Zelda games get a free pass from many reviewers on many annoying things simply because they're Zelda games. An 8 out of 10 for a $50 HD port (which I'm admittedly getting because I don't own the original) shouldn't ruin your day...

@Sonicfan11589 Interesting, definitely makes a lot of sense, surprised Pikmin 3 didn't allow the original Wii Pro Controller.

annoying things?

no? Not anymore than your average major release anyway? Especially since the only annoying parts of Wind Waker are clearly fixed and everyone agrees about this.

That was only half serious and more praising how much I enjoy the game but "this game is older therefore is inferior to new games" logic is stupid and flawed at absolute best. The fact that it's a port of a decade old game doesn't change that I like the game more than any game I've bought so far this year.

No they don't...

The Good

The new aesthetic is different but still beautiful
An evocative soundtrack
Fantastic cast of characters
Filled with great moments
Puzzle-packed dungeons.

The Bad

The second half of the game still drags
Tingle's quest is irredeemably boring.

The name Zelda won't automatically give an HD port a free 10/10...

Like, the thing is I can simultaneously completely understand and respect their opinions if their explained well (which is doubtful for Gamespot, but whatever). But that doesn't change that I think anyone who doesn't think an improved Wind Waker is anything other than a brilliant game (better than anything else Nintendo is releasing this year, fairly certain) is wrong. Sorry, not changing that.

By the way, I love the Zelda games even though I've never beat one and Wind Waker HD might be my first there, I could definitely see it being my favourite, but criticizing an 8 out of 10 review is pretty laughable imo. It's just like when Sony fans got upset at Gamespot for giving The Last Of Us 8 out of 10, but at least that was an all-new game that got near perfect total reviews. Gamespot is arguably the toughest mainstream reviewer. People are too hung up on reviews and when it burns them on a game they like (say like Wonderful 101) they decide to complain instead of forming their own opinions about games they're interested in. If it's a 10 out of 10 to you then it's a 10 out of 10 to you, might be for me too and that's fine.

Also... $50 HD Zelda port better than new 3D Mario...seriously? That's simply wrong, sorry not changing my opinion...see what you sound like and what I'm getting at? Gamespot isn't wrong at all, Wind Waker HD is an 8 to them and you're simply wrong if you think they didn't explain their position perfectly...

People will have their own opinions regardless, so I don't feel bad about wanting the average opinion to reflect my own. If you want to do the same, fine by me. If you care about this, that's on you buddy. But I suggest you don't waste either of our time, as I am not responding even if you do.

Cool story bro, but the world doesn't revolve around you and your "Zelda deserve a free pass" opinion. It's absolutely laughable that some people actually believe that every Zelda game should get a 10 out of 10 no matter what and are almost physically reduced to tears if it doesn't. Accept the scores or don't, nobody cares, just move on.
