5.0 out of 5 stars A true masterpiece worthy of 5 stars June 16, 2005
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was released in the early 90's, a time in which video game makers still focused more on fun gameplay rather than graphics and sound. These days it seems more and more video game makers just want bragging rights for the best graphics and sound, therefore abandoning the most important aspect of the game; rushing out games that are clearly not finished and very little regard to actual gameplay.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Incredible! If you have a Super NES, buy it! February 2, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can I say that hasn't been said already? I have an old Super NES system that I play for the nostaglia value. However, I acquired Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past only recently.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A SNES goody! May 31, 2003
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES|Edition:Standard
Just as the original Zelda game, A Link to the Past depends on exploring. If you study the land carefully you will find many secrets and will learn what is going on and what to do. The game has a nice bird's eye view and the general graphics are decent for 1992. Unlike the original, you do not travel a 128-screen land deprived of people and life. There are townspeople roaming around and HUMAN baddies in areas. The shops are more detailed and the dungeons aren't just a bunch of tiles with something different in it (don't worry, I still like the original). You have the ability to charge your sword and do a spin attack and learn new moves after most dungeons. This is an enjoyable game and is worth every penny you spend on it (I got it from a friend for only a small trade. He he!) A must buy indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Jump! January 8, 2002
By R. Cash
Platform for Display:Nintendo Super NES|Edition:Standard
Wow! A Zelda on a 16 bit system? That's what I said at first when I found out that a new game in the series was coming to the SNES, and what a surprise it was! Those of us who have been with Link since the old school days of "The Legend of Zelda" really appreciated this one when it came out. The graphics were intense the plot was deep, and there were so many new things to find. A person could immerse themselves in this game for hours and even days on end without stopping to eat, sleep, or use the bathroom (yes that was me, well almost). I remeber the countless hours I spent finding heart containers, weapons, and other things in this game, along with all of the good memories that it brought as well. The dungeons seemed immense and endless with the multiple floors that were introduced in this game, and continued throughout the series. I highly recommend this game, and as with everyone else that fell in love with the Zelda series this game is one of my most prized games and I will hold in my collection as long as I live.
