There’s certainly a case for arguing that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is the best Zelda game ever made. Back in 2003 it was a bit of a dark horse for the series, although personally I never really understood why people had a problem with the game’s unique art direction. Still, everyone seemed to get over it, and the game has aged unbelievably well. This HD remake only makes a few small tweaks, but helps perfect an already brilliant experience that is just as enjoyable today as it was 10 years ago.
Skyward Sword follows on Nintendo’s tradition of releasing an epic Zelda game in the twilight years of a console they appeared to have forgotten about. Two years on and I can say with certainty that this was the last great game for the Nintendo Wii, and it’s hopefully what the console will be remembered for, rather than the mass grave full of shovelware it had to climb out of to get here.
