Donlan makes parallels between The Wind Waker and the Zelda series as a whole. He compared the frozen Hyrule Castle under the Great Sea as the game it could have been; the type of game Zelda fans are used to. Even though the mechanics from previous Zelda installments are there, The Wind Waker presents them in a new light.

Donlan makes a lot of other interesting observations, you can read his article here.
