The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
As a Zelda fan, I've been very excited for this to come out for about a year when Nintendo was making a big deal over it. When the day finally came, I traded two games towards this. I played it, and I was having a good time. Five days after release, I finished it. I couldn't believe how easy it was. For crying out loud Nintendo, first Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon was too easy and short, and now a ZELDA title?! Where are the development masters from 1998? I honestly don't see why a bunch of people are rating it 10 out of 10. Oh, and did I mention that I beat it in less than 17 HOURS. AND I didn't use a strategy guide or ANY guide. The only reason I haven't gotten rid of it yet is because I want to try to finish the Hero Mode. It's very rage-activating, but that's Hero Mode. I think there's too many giveaways in the dungeons. I'd say this is for kids 8-12 years old or so.
Why aren't you playing this game right now?!
I am a huge legend of zelda fan i have played all the games and can't get enough of the series. This game brings you back to the old top down zelda games. It's quite difficult and it really makes you think. The new mechanics they introduced are great the story is awesome, and the soundtrack is phenomenal. Just imagine all of your favorite zelda songs from the 90's early 2000's revamped with a full orchestra. It is new and nostalgic at the same time. You can't be considered a fan of the series unless you play this game. It is one of my favorite games of this year and i love everything about it. DO NOT MISS THIS GAME!!
A blast from the past with lots of goodies
I played legend of zelda a link to the past when it came out for super nintendo and beat it at least 3 times and have very fond memories. If your story is similar or if you're a fan of the zelda series, GET THIS GAME! I have to say having played a link to the past has been making this game a lot of fun being very familiar and different at the same time if that makes any sense. My only gripe is the renting system with items, but I'm only about 8 hours into the game so maybe that changes later.
A great SNES game, an amazing 3DS adaptation!
A Link to the Past was the one game that originally got me to be interested in the Zelda series, so naturally I had to pick up A Link Between Worlds. But what I wasn't expecting was that I would be so entranced by this game, to the point that I would be playing this game for hours on end. By far the best part about this game is its utilization of the 3D in such a beautiful way that, it makes you wonder why aren't all games in 3D. On to game play, I can see how the weapon rental system can get annoying, but I never died in the game so it was never really a bother to me. All of the dungeons are different from its SNES counterpart as to keep you interested in finding a way out. The games soundtrack is amazing. There is so little bad things to say about this game, but if I could say anything it would be two things. Due to the rental system, combat is too easy, you won't find that a boss has a specific weakness to a weapon usually, just your sword works most of the time. Two, also due to the rental system some of the dungeons seem less involved with the specific item needed to get to that dungeon, if I'm going to have to go back to Ravio to get a specific item, I'm going to want to use that item to its fullest. All in all, this game is a must own for Zelda fans, and its at least a good decision for some regular gamers.
I have played most Zelda games and it is definitely my favorite series that exists. A Link Between Worlds definitely does not disappoint. It is a very cute, squeal to A Link to the Past. It has detailed game play and many new awesome features. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Before i started the game i thought it was just a visual upgrade from link to the past but when i started the game the puzzles where brand new the combat was smooth and the story was simple yet enticing. one of my favorite zelda games yet. shut up and take my money nintendo
Had a fantastic time playing this game!!
Disclaimer I may have missed spelled a lot of things also probably alot of grammar errors. Overall Gameplay: I really enjoyed playing this game with the new mechanic to transform into a moving painting really added a lot of creative ways to go about and move around through a dungeon. One thing I feel is the boss's were a tad bit easy but I didn't really mind it much solving the puzzles and getting through the dungeons using the new mechanic made up for it. Graphics: In my opinion what really makes the game look good is the art style It really makes this game pop some people might dislike the art style I personally love it. Sound: The music is what you could expect from a Zelda game amazing and relaxing and just EPIC. Sound effects in the game are also very good. Lasting Appeal: I myself have played through the game once and still exploring finding many different things I've missed along my journey. I also found myself testing out the streetpass battle system where you fight shadow link and earn rupee's this wont really add any lasting appeal just sort of a fun and easy way of earning money if you can defeat him. In the game there is also these dungeons where your goal is to get treasure by solving the puzzle I'm pretty positive there's no enemy's in these types of so called dungeons. The one mode that tops this off is Hero mode which you unlock after you beat the game the difficulty of the game is heightened I'm now just starting my play through of it from what I know I don't think much is changed except the difficulty of mobs and bosses and I believe you take much more damage per hit. Well I probably left a lot out but anyways I enjoyed this game and I hope other people will to!!! I guess i'll conclude by saying happy holidays!!
Redefining the Zelda Experience
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the greatest Legend of Zelda game I've ever played. The new gameplay mechanics are a breath of fresh air in the Zelda series. The bosses and dungeons are fun and unforgettable. Also, the StreetPass feature is very fun!
One of the best Zelda games out there
A Link Between Worlds has blown me away with its awesome new characters and style in gameplay. The concepts and puzzling levels have me addicted to this game. It's truly a masterpiece and worth every penny. Highly recommend this game to any Zelda fan.
Nostalgic Tribute to the Best in the Franchise.
This game pays homage to A Link to the Past in many ways, almost like a direct sequel. It's new, it's sharp, and enjoyable. I was worried at first about the 2D/3D system, but it's masterfully implemented, and causes veteran fans of A Link to the Past to think in new ways. Sometimes it can be a bit easy, but later in the game, it becomes very challenging. More than the challenge, it's unbelievably fun. I consider ALttP to the best LoZ game out there, and this one doesn't disappoint.
