With that being said, at the time Zelda:Link to the past had very good graphics and sound to boot. But what kept me playing this game over and over again was the fun gameplay! I originally got this game when I got a replacement SNES and this game was bundled with it. It took me over a year to play it, because I thought to myself, there is no way it could be better than the original Zelda on the NES. One day I decided to pop this game in and realized that I was WRONG! This was the most fun game I had ever played on the SNES even better than Super Metroid in many aspects. It was very easy to pick up and play and easy to learn. Once I started playing, I just could not stop. It took all the aspects I loved from the original Zelda on the NES and multiplied them!
This game was very succesful in capturing the nostagalistic feel of the original game while at the same time allowing me to enjoy a brand new one. Absolutely fantastic.
You still have to search for heart pieces, weapons, upgrades etc, but this game like the original makes it fun rather than tedious and boring. I got a real sense of accomplishment when I found a new item and a even greater feeling when I finally beat the game.Read more ›
While I had played Zelda I and II on the original NES system, I wasn't sure what to expect from this game. I was hoping it would have the fun factor of the original, while having the difficulty of Zelda II (a reputation well deserved, believe me) without the boring "battle scenes" with enemies, which I found quite annoying.
Although this game was released in the US only five years after the original Legend of Zelda, Nintendo made leaps and bounds in graphics and sound quality when they made this game. You can tell this game was a labor of love for the developers. From the minute you begin playing, you become engrossed in an entire mythology...the original Legend of Zelda story is expanded x 10...in fact, this game serves as a prequel to that one.
There are two huge worlds (the Light World and the Dark World) for you to explore. In fact, you will have to explore every nook and cranny in order to beat this game. This game retains the heart containers that were featured in the original. Some you win in the dungeons after beating the bosses. Others you must earn in pieces...either in secret locations or out in plain sight (though not always easy to get to). Your path between these two worlds is the Magic Mirror, a quite invaluable tool that you'll only need to use about 1,000 times to finish the game.
One feature that this game introduced (appearing in later incarnations of Zelda) is the multi-level dungeon. You'll climb/descend stairs, fall into holes, even use a magic cane to create platforms to ride over gaping chasms!Read more ›
