I was overwhelmingly glad when I heard about Nintendo's release of old classics, however, only one game came to my attention; Legend of Zelda, which literally created new genre in the video gaming history(although Super Mario was pretty good too except I happened to have GameboyColor version, which has this 'another' version for the advanced player). It was truly a GREAT game along with Super Mario and Metroid back in late 80s, and playing this classic once again proved that it still is.
I recently finished GameboyColor version of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and was still playing its continuation, Oracle of Ages, when I got this classic (by the way, they are GREAT games!). It became very apparent to me immediately that the series has evolved considerably by comparing with the NES version. I was bit disappointed with its simplicity compare with 'evolved' series, however, playing the first dungeon convinced me that this classic is not about just simplicity; it's actually challenging. It gives out heart or fairy MUCH LESS frequently, meaning that you would have to play every single part of dungeon cautiously (man, I got killed in the first dungeon three times straight!...ok..may be I happen to be a below average player..).
So is this a direct transport from NES counterpart? Yes it is, and I am glad they didn't change or add anything to it. However, I thought the volume of music could've been louder, LOUDER!
I simply bought this game because of nostalgic factor. I still remember vividly how much I loved this game, holding onto the Nintendo Power Magazine with Zelda strategy section; it was my Bible. Finding out about secret stair by burning a tree or finally finding the way in the Lost Wood section... wow...

[I have written two Zelda reviews, one for the original NES release published June 14, 2001, and one for the Gameboy Advanced release [in 2004] for the Classic NES series, published June 15, 2004. Mike London 12-1-2012]

Review 1: (Four stars for the rerelease. Five stars for the actual game.)

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, one of Nintendo's most famous NES games, finally sees a rerelease on Gameboy Advance. People have been waiting a long time for this. The Super Mario series got its update (including a graphic overhaul) over a decade ago on the SNES as SUPER MARIO ALL-STARS, including a brand new (for the American market) game called THE LOST LEVELS. The two NES Zelda games, however, never got rereleased until the Game Cube (!), and on top of that, it was a promotional, free rerelease. All this being said, is the long wait worth it?

Well, sort of. Although it's great to play the old school Zelda without hooking up a working NES, it's rather pricy at twenty dollars and the graphics may very well turn off younger video gamers. Not only that, it's very odd NINTENDO gave Zelda fans four Zelda titles in the ZELDA COLLECTION for free, and here they just released the original without any bonus material or extra features. Nintendo could very easily have included ZELDA II on this cart as well. That being said, THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, of all the classic NES games re-released, is one of the few that justify's its pricetag. The rest could easily have been put in an anthology of classic NES games, instead of bringing each one out separately.

The gameplay of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA sets up the template followed by all subsequent games in the series. (Only the NES sequel has any real amount of deviation from the Zelda formula, bring in more RPG elements into the mix).

Compared to the rest of the Classic NES series, The Legend of Zelda is by far the best to get. Unlike a couple of the other big name classics (like Super Mario Bros.) it hasn't been released an abundance of times. In fact, Zelda has only been re-released once and that was with the limited edition Gamecube. Other than that, this re-release is the one you should be getting!
Journey back to 1986-87 where you DIDN'T have 3D games. Take a look at "The Legend of Zelda". This is THE game that truly defined adventure and was one of the first to allow you to save your game!
Anyone who hasn't played Zelda either because you didn't have it on the NES or weren't around for the NES era should play it. Not just to see how far the Zelda series has come but to see how far gaming has come!
The story is classic! The Evil theif Ganon has come to the land to steal the Triforce of courage. But Princess Zelda broke the Triforce into 8 pieces and hid them from Ganon. Angry at this Ganon kidnapped and imprisoned Princess Zelda. Now a hero must come forth and rescue the Princess, find the eight pieces of the triforce and save the land of hyrule! One of the few early games that had more to it than just "Saving the Princess".
The game is unbelievable and of all the Classic NES release games THIS should be the game to get. This was almost undoubtably the greatest game on the NES and now you've got the entire original ported to the GBA. Keep in mind its a DIRECT port. There are no bonus features and that sort of thing.
Perhaps my only gripe with this game (and it sounds stupid I know) is that the GBA cartridge isn't a Gold cartridge. The original NES version had a Gold cartridge and I was hoping that the "Classic NES Series" would recapture that Gold Cartridge. Either way, this doesn't make a difference to the experience of the game. If there is one Classic NES game you should get... this would be it.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay
It does not have the same features like hidden caves (which is the biggest downer about the game)
But it is a good starter game for someone new to the legend of Zelda.

One irritating thing about this game was having to die to save. That downfall is still here. As a result, I've left my Game Boy DS plugged in and on standby for the past month... Read more
