This poll is now closed.
I wanna say just maybe with all the effects fixed like the fires with Dragon Roost Island and other effects that the Dolphin version is superior aesthetically but as far as gameplay goes the Wii U wins.

Now that the game has been out for awhile now, what do you think?

Haven't played the wii-u version so I wouldn't be able to really say. The dolphin version looks and runs great though. Can't vote.

Dolphin doesn't have BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM so it wins. Excessive bloom detracts from the cartoon aesthetic.

The insane amount of bloom on the Wii U version is ridiculous. And yes I've played it.

There are parts of the Wii U version that are nice, but the Wii U version for $50 vs the Dolphin version for $0?

Yeah....that's a tough one.


Wow so you base your judgement cause of pricing. Your so cool.

The game played on Dolphin is the best version possible of the GameCube original. Wind Waker HD changes the game in many ways that, IMO, make it a better, more refined version of the original. Not only in terms of graphics (true, non-hacked widescreen being the main feature for me), but also in terms of gameplay.

The bloom doesn't bother me at all, so I'll go with the HD version. But if you want to experience the strictly original game with much better graphics, the Dolphin version is the way to go.

HD version is IMO better. I haven't played it, but the gameplay refinements make it a better game.
If you can't spend a ton of money on a console for just one HD remake, Dolphin still makes the original amazing visually.

The only game I played on Dolphin was F Zero GX, but WWHD is better than the original at least so far. I bought the WW Wii U last week because I realized the way paydays line up I have 3 checks this month instead of two.
