The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past User Reviews

9.8

A fun game and one of the best Zelda's ever. Have ye got what it takes to play it?

The good:

Extensive dungeons.
Ability to freely explore the world map and tackle the second set of dungeons.
Entreatining enemies and bosses.
Large hours of gaming.
Sheer variety of magic.

The bad:

The overworld map can be confusing.
Early game is not all that n00b friendly and thus exploration becomes tainted by fear of death.
In the GBA revision the secret room has been made impossible to access without cheating.
Same goes for the GBA version that the extra dungeons must be unlcoked with multiplayer.

Summary:

A Link To The Past takes its predecessor game Zelda II and simply makes its experience even better. Instead of using a Final Fantasy esque system of leveling up its goes backs to the basics of Zelda I, that is Adventure, the change is welcome as it makes old gamers feel right back at home.

The gameplay is a top down exploration game, with two (for the GBA version) slots to select two items, one of the core mechanics of Zelda is the adquisition of items in order to be able to progress more and ALTTP does not falls behind, instead does everything in its power to make this experience as enyoabl...

One Of Link's Best Adventures On The Gameboy

The good:

-Visuals -Soundtrack -Controls -Story

The bad:

-Repetitive Gameplay

Summary:

The Introduction The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past was one of the best games on the SNES and still today it doesn't disappoint. The graphics are great in this game, though not the best their still wonderful, Capcom and Nintendo did a tremendous job on remaking this game, making the music great like the other Zelda. Like all Zelda games there are many secrets to find, dungeons to explore, and enemies to kill to complete your quest. A Link To The Past Link's quest is to save princess Zelda from Agahnim, an evil sorcerer. Agahnim tricked the king and his guard into doing whatever he...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

The good:

Contains a demo of the four swords adventure.
Quite a long and challenging game.

The bad:

Sometimes gets a little too challenging.

Summary:

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is my favourite Zelda game for the Gameboys at the moment. It's a really hard game to play through as there are quite a few dungeons and puzzles through out the game and many of them are very challenging. The game is quite long which is good. The graphics are quite good and in some cases can actually look 3D. There are a variety of places to go and all of them are pretty good with music to suit the theme. The demo that comes with it is on the same catridge as this and gives you a taste of what the four swords adventure is like.

Overall i'd say this is ...

Good Job for Zelda

Summary:

I was a huge fan of Zelda growing up, for the NES and the SNES, and i just got the GBA and this game over the weekend, and I lvoe it. everythinng is exactly the same as the original! i don't know how they did it, even the GFX look pretty good, most other games look a bit pixelated. This game is on my top 5 list, forever and always.. The bosses seems harder to defeat in my opinion mainyl because i am used to the Wind Waker lol. But all together i think this might just be the evry best Game Boy Advance game out there, and will be for a while until the new game comes out later this year....I e...

Blast to the Past

Summary:



The Legend of Zelda series has a special place in the hearts of many Nintendo gamers across the world. Starting back on the humble NES the first adventure shook the gaming world with its open ended exploration, clever puzzles and challenging enemies. After an ill received Zelda II the series returned on the SNES and went back to its roots. Now GBA owners get to taste the magic of the third entry of the series with this wonderful port that also brings along some extras for good measure.

There are effectively two games on board here. One is more-or-less a direct port of the original SNES game,...

9.0

Great game in (almost) every way.

The good:

The storyline, graphics, and music in this game are exceptional. The Four Swords multi-player is a fun little game that makes the game worth getting if you have already played the SNES version.

The bad:

The controls aren't perfect and the battle system needs a little work.

Summary:

The latest installment in the Zelda series isn't as new as you might think. In fact, the original came out in 1992 for the SNES. If you have played the SNES version, this new release for the GBA has some small changes. The most noticeable changes are in the music and the graphics. However the storyline is EXACTLY the same. But this time around Nintendo has added a new multi-player adventure. This multi-player game is not only fun if you have a few friends to play it with, but it will also unlock some new features that you can use in the main game. Unfortunately, without Four Swords t...
