Alright okay I see your point.
But it was only a dissapointment in the length department and the fact there were some minor irritating sections.
When it comes to the battle system, the humour and the graphical style... it exceeded expectations.
Now shut up.
I remember when i had an N64, all the hype and then i got and thought wow this is really dull.

What he said.
Oh and criticising sailing is a small moan that has been blown way out of proportion.
It really isn't all that bad.

Treasure hunting in the sea? Fun? Hah! After the novelty wore off this was, to be blunt, boredom. A monotony of trial and error with repetitive results. There were disappointingly few side-quests and you can't count nostalgia as a plus point. The graphics were lovely, the combat system was slick but the game was disappointing.
There was only one decent village, there was far too much sailing and there were sections that were less nostalgic than they were unoriginal. And that's not to mention the painful process of having to buy maps, as well as seek out treasure in order to proceed.
A bad game? No, no - not at all; there's a multitude of positive things to be said. All in all, it was excellent. But was it disappointing? Yes.

Wind Waker was a stunning adventure that felt exactly the same as the Zelda games.
I remember argueing with someone or other over Sunshine until I was blue in the face. 2 months later he returned to the game and realised I was right all along and he was just looking at the game in a negative light.
Wind Waker was so much fun, treasure hunting in the see, the nostalgia of the temple, the gorgeous graphics, the comic side quests, the facial animations... the slick and fantastic combat system.
In fact that combat system is by far the greatest aspect of the entire game, beating any Zelda game to a pulp. It is the main reason that Wind Waker excels past the likes of Beyond Good and evil.
Wind Waker may have been a step sideways from Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time rather than the step up we all wanted. But it wasn't a step backwards. There was too much good in it to find the game "dissapointing"...
I never complete a game I'm not totally enjoying.
