coverLegend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the first Zelda game for the Game Cube, puts players in control of Link's direct descendant in a lush, water-covered world. The Zelda series is a celebrated one, and Wind Waker brings a cartoon-ish style to the series.


Link begins his journey on peaceful Outset Island, where he lives happily with his grandmother and younger sister. Tragedy strikes, however, with the kidnapping of Link's sister by a giant bird. Link needs to find his weapons before he sets out with a group of pirates to save her. On his journey, he learns of many other problems plaguing the land.


Many quests and activities round out the game, including boat races, cannon shooting, a type of one-sided battleship, and more. Since Wind Waker takes place on the Great Sea, it is important for players to learn about the islands. Players can build this knowledge by searching out fishmen for helpful tips and information. Our testers thoroughly enjoyed finding all 64 fishmen. Players also collect figurines. After acquiring the color pictograph box, Link can give his colored photos to a strange man hidden somewhere on a specific island. This man will make a figurine of the person in one day, and the figurine will then be displayed in one of many rooms. It requires some skill to acquire all of the enemy figurines.


Overall, Wind Waker is an amazing game with a rich story line, good controls, and outstanding graphics. Kids don't have to be Zelda fans in order to happily lose themselves in hours of engrossing gameplay.
