Is Wind Waker the most under-appreciated Zelda game?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is Wind Waker the most under-appreciated Zelda game?

To be honest the more I played this one, the more I hated it... I never got to finish it and that's a serious thing to say for me... I never leave a Zelda game unfinished... I'll beat it someday eventually. Maybe my opinion will change for the better but I find it to be the weakest entry in the series.

Maybe you're getting older. You know, over thirty years old. That might make you look at Wind Waker and say "weird".

We are at the point in the Zelda cycle where everyone loves Wind Waker. It's Skyward Sword's turn now.


I'll never love that game, let alone like it!



I think Wind Waker is held in high regard by critics and fans, despite some of the superficial criticism leveled at the game when it first launched. It's rightly recognized as one of the most beautiful and immersive games in the series.

The Minish Cap and Spirit Tracks are probably the most overlooked Zelda games.



Nah, that'd be Zelda 2 and Skyward Sword, IMO.

No, the first two Zelda games are. Everytime I see someone post that Zelda has always had puzzles as an integral part of the experience, I can safely put them down on the list of idiots. Truth through repetition doesn't work if the evidence can't be erased and is still readily available.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

As far as console games are concerned, I'd have to give that honor to Zelda 2, actually. The style turned a lot of people off and Nintendo has never returned to it, which is a shame since so many cool mechanics were introduced. Wind Waker, as many have said here, had an initial bad reception upon its reveal, but quickly moved into the upper echelon of Zelda games once it had been released. Now you see why.



Of course not, especially after the release of the HD remake. That title probably goes to Zelda 2.



I feel like Link's Awakening is sometimes the forgotten game in the series, but it was amazing, better than most of them imo.



No, it's the most over-appreciated.
