Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Legend continues on Nintendo GameCube in an all-new epic adventure for one to four players. Fusing cooperative and competitive action, Four Swords Adventures features a unique gameplay system that incorporates both the television and the Game Boy Advance.

When you enter a building or dive into a cave, your character switches from the TV to the Game Boy Advance. When you emerge, the frantic action shifts back to the big screen. To thwart Vaati's nefarious forces, you'll have to master new skills and techniques never before seen in the Legend of Zelda series.

Features:

  • Up to four players can link their GBAs to the Nintendo GameCube to join a fun and frantic competition for Force Gems and special items while cooperating to move massive blocks, trigger switches, and slay mighty bosses.
  • Explore eight massive worlds in the Hyrulean Adventure mode, or fight your friends in Shadow Battle mode until only one Link remains!
  • A rich single-player mode allows you to assume control of all four Links and command their every move by seamlessly switching among battle formations.
  • A high-resolution, top-down play perspective features dazzling visual effects like vivid colored lighting, silky-smooth water ripples, swirling smoke, and stylized weather effects.
Long ago, a valiant hero defeated an evil wind demon known as Vaati and imprisoned him with a magical seal. Over the ages, the seal weakened. Now, Vaati has escaped and abducted Princess Zelda and the six Shrine Maidens. To thwart Vaati's vile forces, legendary hero Link turns to the mystical power of the Four Sword to split himself into four colored copies of himself. The four Links embark on a quest to collect Force Gems and save Princess Zelda. Their journey will take them through enemy-infested lands and puzzle-plagued dungeons.

Four Swords Adventures seamlessly fuses many elements from past Zelda games into an all-new adventure. Zelda veterans will recognize items, characters, and enemies from Zelda classics like Link's Awakening, A Link to the Past, The Wind Waker and more. This game really is a dream come true for any Zelda fan!

Bottom line: The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures is a massive Zelda masterpiece that's just as fun for a single player as it is for four adventurers.

You can explore 8 vast worlds in Hyrulean Adventure mode or fight your friends in Shadow Battle mode. Either way you'll be treated to a great high-resolution, top-down play perspective that features dazzling visual effects like vividly colored lightening, smooth water ripples, swirling smoke and stylized weather changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Multiplayer Fun July 24, 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Zelda Four Swords is extremely similar to SNES' "A Link to the Past"; only with a linear, unexplorable world map. If you enjoyed that game or some of the other old school Zelda titles, this will be VERY fun for you.

To put it bluntly, you will want friends. In this game, you can only carry one item at a time. It's a good idea to tell your friends to grab items you think you'll need down the road to solve puzzles. This is the sole reason why the game feels easier the more people there are to help you... you spend less time backtracking to swap items.

The game is presented in stages, so if you are looking for a Zelda game with a huge, freely explorable world, or if you just like to play alone, you'll have problems with this one. As for replay value, once you beat the stages there is little else you can do. The battle mini-games are fun, but do not last long. However, Four Swords is an enjoyable game with great music, and will remind you of the SNES Zelda.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game! September 16, 2005
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Although this game is very different from most Zeldas, I think it is one of the best. I like that there are many different puzzles to solve on many different boards. There are also some interesting weapons and items that can be used, but you start out each board without an item and can only pick them up one at a time. You must also start out each board with only three heart containers, but it's really fun to look for them each time. Overall, I think this game is very fun, addicting and easy to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Built for four players May 9, 2006
By J.S.R.
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was made for four players. I do not recommend it unless you can get four people together to play it. It is not a fun game to play single player, or even with two people. It was designed as a four player game.

Unfortunately the cost of playing this game w/ 4 GBAs is pretty prohibitive, so few people have played this game the way it was meant to be played. If you can get together four people with GBAs and link cables, this is definitely a game you should play. I managed to convince three other people to buy GBAs and a link cable to play this game, thinking that more similar games would come out for the GC. Unfortunately all we got was the very mediocre Crystal Chronicles. I have a feeling the prohibitive cost of playing this game limited its sales enough to stop N from releasing any more similar games.

Now assuming you can get four people together w/ four GBAs this game really shines. The coordination needed to do some of the puzzles and bosses really gets people vocal and its lots of fun. There are also a ton of mini games that occasionally we'll still play even after beating the game.

There is definitely a darkside to this game, which can be both good and bad. If there are any competitive people in your group, beware. You're going to have to set some ground rules or chances are you'll have a brawl break out sooner or later. The competition for rupees can be pretty fierce, and this is compounded by the game mechanic that lets you steal rupees from each other so easily by just attacking. And you'll get nowhere in the game if you don't cooperate, so without some sort of ground rules you'll get nowhere as people just kill each other for rupees over and over. I sort of wish Nintendo had put in a mode to prevent rupee stealing (sort of like a coop mode).

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! May 12, 2005
Format:Video Game
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Four Swords Adventures is definitely a great buy. It's interesting gameplay coupled with multiplayer modes and Tingle's tower minigames add to the replayability. The graphics suck, but that was only to fit all the gameplay... though I hate the level system as opposed to the world map but then again, some levels would be unaccessable... but anyway this game owns, you should buy it and show it to your friends, but if you don't have Gameboy Advances, the GBA/CGN Cable or friends... the replayability value drops by 1 point, it's still a solid game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, Loved it June 3, 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is not like Wind-Waker at all. It is more like the Legend of Zelda for the NES, which I thought was great. The graphics are not super great, but if you love playing Zelda on the NES you will love this game. We didn't play with the Game Boy Advance, but just played the one player game. It's very addicting and fun for everyone. Don't bother with the book, go online to find out clues for some of the more complicated puzzles.

Don't pass this one up, especially now that it's on sale.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's OK December 4, 2005
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an okay game. I love the Zelda games where the graphics make you feel like you are right there in the Land of Hyrule. This is not one of those games. As far as the plot and actually playing of this game goes, it is kinda of fun. It still takes some thinking to get in and out of stages, so the only thing that you may really miss is the graphics. If your favorite Zelda is the good 'ole original NES version you will enjoy this game. If however, you want closeup action with amazing visual and sound effects that makes you feel like your in a whole new world, then I'd wait and save your money for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Game! July 18, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At first, I didn't know if I should get this game. I watched the IGN video review, and it said it was a good game, but single player mode isn't as good. I decided to get it anyway, even though I don't have a GBA or a GCN-GBA Connecitivity Cable. I first played it, and thought it would be boring, but when I got into it, I realized how fun it is. I have three other Zelda games; Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. In many ways, this game is much different from the others in the series. The first thing I noticed was that instead of setting items like in the other Zelda games, you can hold only one at a time, therefore dropping the one you already had, and having to go back to where you left it to use it again. Another major difference is that there isn't a main overworld with dungeons in it, where you can save any time you want. The style is similar to Mario; you enter a level, beat it, and unlock the next one. You can't save in the middle of levels, which is very annoying, because some levels (Village of the Blue Maiden in particular) take a VERY LONG TIME. I had to leave my GCN on all day for one of them. The other difference I'll point out is there are no side quests. No overworld usually means no side quests. For example, you play through the first level, and in the middle you open a chest with a heart container in it. Now you have a maximum of five hearts. But when you start the next level, you only have four hearts again (the starting amount of hearts). Still, this game is so addicting, even though the graphics are sort of pixelly, and the gameplay style is what yo might call "old school." Another cool part about this game that isn't in the other Zelda games I have is that sometimes you go into a cave, and it changes to side-scrolling view (like Mario). Sometimes you can even get a jumping power, and then it's really like Mario, jumping from platform to platform.
Overall, this game is very fun. Thank you for reading.
