The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
A Link Between Worlds - Game Review
A Link Between Worlds is an instant classic and it is going to be a huge influence for future gaming. It had a perfect balance with retro gameplay and modern gameplay as well. I love the creativity with the portrait effect. The orchestrated music is so amazing. I love how in every situation it would switch the soundtrack constantly. There are lots of enjoyable mini games with nice rewards at the end. Of course, you can enjoy the adventure throughout the light/dark world in 3D. I'm glad that they took advantage with the 3D because it's like a cherry on top of a magnificent sundae. Now the only complain I have is that game isn't as challenging, or as difficult as other Zelda games. I didn't feel the urgency or the edge of the seat situation like I had with "A Link to the Past" or "Ocarina of Time." (especially on dungeons and boss battles.) But yet again that is why they added "Hero Mode" just for hardcore gamers like myself. To make a long story short... its a must buy!!
Color of the case is no differant than the game
Thats right. This game is GOLD. People need to stop complaining that the game is too ''easy'' or the dungeons are to ''easy''. Why don't people actually pay attention to the game play? The game has a unique and breathtaking experience. You can go IN walls, and walk while you are in one, to help you get places. In the dungeons, you need to merge into the walls and go to another corner to get to a platform, to get to some stairs that were out of reach before. There are also new weapons such as
- the sand rod
- the tornado rod
- the ice rod
and the fire rod.
The music is stunning, (in a good way) it is done by a different composer than previous Zelda games, but thankfully, they picked a good one. The Lasting appeal takes so long before it goes away. A lot of people have been saying this game is worse than previous Zelda games, that things have changed, but in my opinion, video games can't always be the same thing, over and over again, and that it IS good to change. Thats something that a lot of gamers don't get these days. Sometimes, video games need to be worth their color. Gold.
Zelda, a link between worlds preview. A remake?
The legend of Zelda A link between worlds is coming out on November 13 2013. and the game is set in the same world of the SNES game The legend of Zelda, a link to the past. so it looks like it will be a Very late sequel to that SNES classic. the game is played on an overhead angle. it is a confusion of whether this will be a sequel to A link to the past, or if this will be a remake, we will just have to wait to find out. I think that this will most likely be a remake, and that's not a bad thing, it just doesn't feel fresh. I'm not a fan of remakes and this looks amazing though. There also is a remake of wind waker for GameCube coming out Wii u this October . and There are some small rumors of a possible 3DS port of Majora's mask. I highly can't wait for those.
The Legend lives.
The Legend of Zelda A link Between Worlds should be a breath of freash air when it comes out. The Legend of Zelda is my all time fav Video game serise Is spirtal admostear beautiful storys and brilant puzzels & connected levels make it a gaming serise that has become a classic in among non Nintendo gamers. This one seems to have its a speach personality of it all of it own why still feeling like part of the Legend. It's also the first non lenner Zelda seance the first on the NES. The game will offer a lot more freedom about how you progress that should let you play at your on pace more freedom and strategy. The new mechanics seem very interesting & I can't wait to see how they are implanted in the game. The puzzles also seem very logical & different from past Zelda's the game seems to have a speachal flow that I love! The combat also looks fun. according to a interview with one of the devs game will run at 60 fps even in 3D so it should play super smoth as well! The ownly bad thing about it I have not seen Chickens in this yet! Chickens were one of the reasons why A Link to The Past was awesome. We need chickens! I Love chickens they are Gods wonderful creaters! So yes you can tell I am over all a very big Zelda fan this will be Game of the year 2013. Pre-Order now and get your download code for Oracle of Seasons my BFF has that game & he enjoyed it. Its very nice & neat. If any of you want to be my 3DS Friend my FC is 5112-3871-3056 My older name was 3DSFlo but now my name is AngelFlo but you can still follow my on Miiverse under Nintendo Net Work Id 3DSFlo. Understand? warning if you add me I am addicted to Swapnotes! Yay! Save up money and buy this game! And if you don't have a 3DS buy one they are so many awesome games out for it now. God Bless Brush your teeth & don't waste food. Flo Out!
An enduring top-down perspective!
While it saddened me to learn that Zelda Link Between Worlds wouldn't be developed in the 3D perspective like its modern counterparts, I wasn't about to pass up a new Zelda game. This game utilizes the top-down perspective in ways I could've never thought possible, and the 3D is particularly stunning in this form. The mechanics of being able to merge into walls is a blast, and temporarily renders the perspective to something of 3D as I mentioned earlier (not to be confused with the 3D effects of the system itself). I'll admit this game is not as challenging as many past titles, but regardless it is a fun ride with enough references to A Link to the Past to make any Zelda veteran feel right at home. The open world concept gives a broader sense of freedom and exploration, which I love. My only complaint is the inability to connect across wifi for shadow battles. Streetpass is a cool feature, but I'll never understand why it seems to take priority over online features. But regardless, this Zelda title is a joy to play and worth your time!
A piece of art
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is none other than a beautiful experience that every gamer must play. Here are 10 reasons why you must have this game. 1. Music- The soundtrack in this game is absolutely gorgeous. From epic tracks to soft tracks, this is one of the best sounding Zelda games. 2. The characters- In all Zelda games the characters you meet along your journey are always memorable, and this game is no exception. From the evil and sure of himself villain, to the princess of the dark kingdom of Lorule, all the way to the weird yet awesome shop keeper, you will find yourself truly connecting with the characters of this game in every sense. 3. The story- Though not deep enough to make you cry, the story throughout the game is fantastic and perfectly well paced. 4. Freedom in exploration- Over the years Zelda games have become very strict in the sense that you go to this dungeon an then that dungeon. In this new adventure you decide where you want to explore in any order you want. This brings me to the next reason; 5. New way to play- In this adventure instead of you getting key items in dungeons, you'll be able to get all of them for a high price soon after you begin your quest. This allows you to explore the land and solving puzzles at any time you would like to. 6. The action- Like all Zelda's you are Link with you sword, shield, and other weapons. This game is no exception with it's spot on gameplay that's as fun as heck to beat the enemies with. 7. Wall morning....or whatever it's called- In this installment you'll be able to ride along side the walls to get to places you never could in order to solve puzzles and find items. This adds a tremendous amount of new fun experiences to the game that I never felt before in any Zelda title. This new ability is truly unique 8. The puzzles- With every dungeon...there must be puzzles to keep you from moving forward, and this game has some of the best I've solved in a long time. Using your items, smarts, and new wall morphing ability, this game is packed with really fun, clever, and (only some) difficult puzzle solving. 9. I don't have a number 9 so let's move on to number 10. 10. Zelda- Let me remind you, this is a Legend of Zelda title.......WHY WOULDN'T YOU BUY IT!?!?!?! Okay now to the final question you read this whole review to get an answer to which is, should you but this game and is it worth buying a 3ds for. The simple answer would be yes, the complicated answer would be every reason you read throughout this review.
A sequel to an amazing game
TLoZ A Link to The Past was and still is an outstanding game. Finally after many years it is getting a del deserved sequel in stereoscopic 3d. With A Link Between Worlds, you'll be playing in a top down view which will really take advantage of the 3d features. It will also run on 60fps which is not seen much or yet on the 3ds. A Link Between Worlds will bring back old classic items, gameplay, and characters. But also will bring in tons of new features with the capabilities of the 3ds. A Link Between Worlds is the perfect reason to get a 3ds if you don't have one already. It's a day one purchase for me and hopefully you too.
Fantastic! Give it a chance.
First off, it's a sequel to my favorite Zelda game, so it has a lot to live up to. I think this game is fantastic! Creative puzzles, fantastic music, tough boss battles, and the visuals are a great melding of old and new-school Zelda art styles. If you remember Link to the Past, running around Hyrule will send you on a great nostalgia trip. The item renting system initially bothered me, but I grew to enjoy it, as it allows you to complete the dungeons in any order you see fit. You can buy the weapons you rent for about 800 rupees (some for a little more), but you find money stashed in so many different places that this isn't a problem. There is even a cool upgrade system for the weapons and gear you accumulate. GIVE THE GAME A CHANCE before you complain about the changes made to the standard Zelda formula, as many are doing. I really think any REAL fan of the series will enjoy this game, as well as anyone who appreciates a well put together action adventure game.
What can I say? It isn't what I was expecting. I'm an extreme Legend of Zelda fan, and I'm used to them having puzzles and challenges. I'm used to spending ages in a dungeon, trying to figure it out. I'm used to fighting tricky bosses. So far, this game has none of that. The dungeons are frustratingly easy; I finish them in half an hour. I haven't gotten stumped once, and the bosses have no chance against me. Fairy? Why would I need a fairy? I can kill a boss and barely be damaged. Actually, I beat a boss yesterday WITHOUT losing hearts. I like the new power this game brings, and I like the music, but that's about all I can say about it... I don't like the idea of renting items either because then what satisfaction do you have in solving a dungeon? I'm used to beating a dungeon, and then being excited because now I can go do some side mission with my new item! Not anymore. One more thing, what's this about having unlimited arrows and bombs? All I have a hope of getting from any chest or person is gold or a heart piece. I miss finally beating that mini-game and getting a bigger quiver! How fun it was. ~sighs~ I feel as if this game is geared towards children, and I'm, like I said, disappointed. Please give me a Legend of Zelda game like Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Spirit Tracks, Ocarina of Time, etc. Don't make the games easier, I beg of you.
Excited can't even describe how I feel!
Seriously, this is probably one of the most exciting things I have heard of that is coming out this year. I pre-ordered it the very instant I heard about it. I grew up playing the first one on SNES when I was a little kid, so I know this is going to bring back a whole flood of memories. And I do like how its a legitimate sequel and there are some new spins on gameplay, incorporating the 3D aspect and dual screens. Kinda wish they had some sort of promo included though for pre-orders. Oh well. Time to start counting down the days! lol
