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!

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.
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.
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.
Though I’ve only thoroughly played and beaten two Zelda games, I am confident A Link Between Worlds will be remembered as a high point in the series. The game’s old-school Zelda style is significantly different from that of more modern titles, and it’s a truly triumphant return. The item collection aspect is surprisingly fun, helping to bolster the game’s somewhat weak post-story (more on that later). Perhaps the quest to obtain every last tool, weapon, and heart piece is so addictive because most, if not all, of the collectibles will contribute to your combat skills, and therefore each directly affects regular gameplay. This improvement of fighting capability is made sweeter by the StreetPass Shadow Link battles, which let the player battle AI representations of other people’s characters, complete with individual items and equipment. This feature, too, helps make the game last longer, though I wish there was a way to directly do battle with others.
The game’s graphics are good, and the use of the 3D effect is exemplary; it legitimately contributes to some parts’ visual quality. The soundtrack and sound effects are both great, also. Of particular quality are the Overworld themes of both Hyrule and Lorule. The story is good, and the characterization of Ravio, Princess Hilda, and Yuga is nicely executed (for a video game). The optional order of dungeon completion (in Lorule) was a nice addition, too. The combat system is simple yet effective, and though some Lorulean enemies are a bit overpowered, this should be mitigated by eventual health and weapon upgrades. And though some specific instances in the game felt a bit obscure as to how to progress, this can probably be attributed to my inaptitude at Zelda games. Rest assured, enough experimentation and exploration can generally solve most puzzles and problems.
The only real place wherein A Link Between Worlds falters is in lasting appeal. Though the aforementioned item collection is fun, the game could have used a better post-story. And by better post-story, I mean *a* post story. There is none. After beating the final boss, you’re reset to right before the showdown. This is very annoying to me, generating a perpetual feeling of incompleteness, even after the player has collected every last item. I understand that the way in which the story ends somewhat prevents a playable post-story, but I’m still disappointed. And though the StreetPass functionality is fun, and the challenge of scoring best times at the Treacherous Tower is an option, it’s hard to dedicate much time to perfecting myself in those mini-games. This is because, at its core, Zelda isn’t really a game that’s meant to be a competitive, “share-with-your-friends”-type experience. And the Second Quest isn’t very enticing either, with too little changed aspects to make it worth it. Still, A Link Between Worlds is an awesome game, and I would definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of the adventure genre.
Modernizing the old.
To tell you the truth the first LoZ game I beat (not played) was Ocarina of Time than Majora's Mask. Being used to that style of gameplay made me hesitant on getting this game with the bird eyes view style like the older games. All that waiting was in vein because this game was fantastic. Between the storyline, gameplay, graphics, music and more the game accomplished everything and more in a Zelda game. Honestly there isn't much to say without spoiling the game, but I'd recommend this game to most people especially Legend of Zelda fans because it not only has the RPG/Fighting, but has a huge variety of puzzles that make you love the game.
This game is awesome. If you liked the old Legend of Zelda games, this new one takes the cake with a pretty cheesy but neat new mechanic of turning into a painting. The graphics were jagged and I dislike that, but it didn't take away from the experience. (And you can kind of expect that with the 3DS screen resolution so I won't beat on it) All said, this is an addictive and fun game that can test your wits at some points and is definitely worth it.
