The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Great game, some fallbacks
This game is fun for you Zelda fans, but if you want longevity, the story line is short. I beat it in two days. The new merge mechanic is nice, but at time's I was confused at what to do. A good example is the dungeon Turtle Rock. The ending was nice. Overall, a great game, but the puzzles in the dungeons could be toned down.
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!!
Best handheld game I ever played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds is one of my fav games ever made! The graphics are very good with rich lighting and beatiful colors. In the first few seconds of gameplay you will see a bird flying over the large game world form right outside your house in the game. The game might have a top down view but it is still looks great with live time lighting and amazing things to see. Very smooth animation with great uses of motion blur to make it feel so real. The 3D adds a amazing pop between layers and turning in to a painting lts u see the simamatic view of the charecter models in 3D moving about as well as all the other objects around u from a different angle. Zelda is also a beautiful lady in this game.... I wish she was real.... Such a nice lady to.... Any way.... The sound effects are also great u can hear the birds, you can hear your sword cutting throw the air. And you can hear your own foot steps perficly in line as you walk or run throw the game world. The game takes a different apporch no longer are all the key idea's found in the games brilantly designed dungons but they u can now buy them from a friendly if not greedy merchant or rent them. How ever if u rent them and die he will take them back so this adds a punishment for death and makes u more teance. The combat is smooth and almost all your idea's have effect in it. The smooth animation and clashing of meadal sound effects. As well as some well designed bosses and a adivtive streetpass shadow Link duals make the combat surpisily enjoyible if not a bit sempictic and repetive compared to passed resent Zelda games. Each chearacter in the game has a great personilty as a part of the story and the story is full of lour and gives amazing context for futher Zelda games in the timeline like OOT and Major'as Mask. The story is meaningful and emotional at times it is inspirerd by some real world history and thouse who dig hard enogh will fine a amazing meaing in the games design both story and gameplay really make you feel like your own a adventure. How ever the open world is great and broght to life in a all new way its the same basic lay out as A Link to The Pass. This may bring back great memorys of one of 16 bit games finest express and it hold up today very well. But the lake of changes to the hub world did seem a little strange as many of the parts of history they draw from comes from differet arrows of roamen history ect. Yet the over world is not roamen or really changed to fix the story. It does not feel overly nastogic but its open world design is some what limmed my its roots. That said the story blow my mind as did the amazing puzzles in the all new doungons. Some puzzles have different ways to sove them and are all amazingly design to give u the amazing feeling of soving a great Zelda dougon. And if u get stuck you can go see the fortion teller or buy hints with play coins for a ghosts. The story and level design were so emotionaly powerful for me this game gets my full recomenation and 2013 game of the year! Buy it now! And follow me on Miiverse my Nintendo Net Work Id is 3DSFlo. Also this game has Chickens so that's awesome!!!
A Cult Classic
I purchased this game yesterday and it was totally worth the forty bucks. Ravio is great and the weapon renting system is also good. It even has good field as well as dungeon combat. I recommend it to all kinds of gamers.
Perfect game for hardcore Zelda fans!
I love all the new stuff that this game brings to the table. I love how Nintendo refreshes their games and this game is an example. Since 1986, Zelda has been the game that revolutionized the way we look at games. Shigeru Miyamoto has done it again!
one word, AMAZINGLY AWESOME YOU WILL LOVE IT
this game has a clever use of the 3D ability of the 3ds or 2ds. it was the first game i got for 3ds n its perfect for ANYONE IN 14 YEARS OLD AND I DONT CARE. this is one of the greatest games of all time. its one of those games that takes you so long to do something but when you finally do it YOU FEEL LIKE NOTHING CAN STOP YOU. this is an intense action game that involves alot of paying attention to things people say to you in the game. just go out and get it why are you still reading this GO MAN GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good game for everyone
Let me start by saying that I have never been into the Zelda series. I have tried playing other games in the series and they have never held my attention for long. After watching some videos I figured to give this one a try. I am really glad I did! I really enjoyed playing this game. The graphics are great and the story is awesome! This was the only game I played for 2 weeks. This newest addition to the Zelda series had captured my attention and I looked forward to the next time I would play. If you have never played or cared for the Zelda series, give this one a try.
A Huge Success
I am a huge Zelda fan and have played most of the games and I must rave about how excellent this game was. It had great puzzles and was incredibly fun. It also had my favorite story line next to Twilight Princess. Overall, this was a wonderful game and I would recommend it to anyone.
The game blew me away.
i first had doubts about the game, but after getting it for Christmas, and playing it, i couldn't put my 3DS down. the graphics were amazing (though i wish they used the 3D more.) and the gameplay was a perfect challenge . i recommend this game to everybody! its great for someone who likes a challange
This is Great game
OK Legend of Zelda series is a great one. But this one is one of the better ones. It is very difficult to figure out sometimes so I admit I used walkthroughs so one bad thing for the game but it is a long campaign so that is a big plus took me two weeks at 5 hours a day two complete. Great game very confusing at times and the end is a bit twisted even I was surprised! Great for kids and adults.
