Also included are both N64 titles: Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask. Finally there is a playable demo for Windwaker. I really like the fact that 4 full Zelda games are found on one gamecube disk. This is especially nice if you only have a Gamecube or a Wii. I know true purists would rather play the games on their original system but if you don't have the original games, or don't have room to have a bunch of consoles set up, this is really a lot more convenient.
If you're looking for the OOT Master Quest, you'll want to search for a LoZ 2-game promotional disc including both Ocarina of Time and the Ocarina of Time Master Quest. If you have a 3DS you could also get the OOT remake.
As the box says, this disc has 4 full games on it. It also has a demo of The Wind Waker, a short video retrospective, and a fairly useless tutorial about hoking up a Game Boy Advance to The Wind Waker (kind of irrelevant if the person doesn't own the full game).
The first game included is The Legend of Zelda, from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). This game is the one most people remember, and considering the time when it was made, it holds up fairly well. If anything, it's actually slightly overrated in my opinion, but it's still a very good game.
The second title is Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, also on the NES. While many people don't seem to like this one, it actually is my favorite of the "old" Zelda games. Unlike the first game, even aimlessly wandering around has a purpose, as you gain experience points, grow stronger and learn spells in a very RPG-like fashion. The side-scrolling view also helps make it more action-oriented.
The third game included on this disc, Ocarina of Time, is undoubtedly a classic. The graphics actually look a bit sharper here than on the native Nintendo 64 hardware, and the inherent control differences inherent in the system (familiar to anyone who's worked with an emulator or the Virtual Console) aren't as big an issue here as some games. Another good feature is that the GameCube controller has rumble built into it.
The fourth game is Majora's Mask.Read more ›
In 2003, Nintendo began the first of many Zelda back game reissues, which was a long time coming. The whole reason for this compilation's existence was so you can play the entire Legend of Zelda series (at that time, anyway) on one system: the GameCube. With the Gameboy Adapter, you could play the entire Zelda catalogue on your GameCube, including the three Gameboy Titles that were out at 2003. Being Zelda fans, a lot of people (myself included), were exited to learn Nintendo was releasing this compilation., especially since we could play the entire franchise on one system.
For close to ten years (1994 to 2003), you had not been able to buy a new version of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA or ZELDA II due to them not being in production or released on any current system. Every time you wanted to play NES ZELDA, you had to dust off the old NES and fire the game up. In my 2001 review of the original game, I lodge that complaint against Nintendo that there hadn't been a legitimate release of these two games. They've more than made up for that oversight in the intervening years.
Well, Zelda Collector's Edition changed all that. Though never sold in stores, you got the game buy either preregistering for the then new WIND WAKER, or you bought a new GameCube.Read more ›
