The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review (Nintendo 3DS) (9.9)  by  

The latest entry in Nintendo's famous adventure series, The Legend of Zelda, is just about upon us! This game takes place in the same "world" as the classic SNES game, A Link To The Past, following a new Link on a new adventure through Hyrule, and an alternate kingdom, Lorule.


Time to grab the Master Sword once again, adventure fans. The world needs a hero, will you answer the call?

I wouldn't mind seeing a lot of the core gameplay mechanics of Skyward Sword (motion controls, upgrades, stamina bar) all moved over and refined (and added upon) in a new Zelda game. I felt the core mechanics are the most superior of all the 3D Zeldas, just that that everything barring dungeons & puzzles built around it wasn't very good...

@Abdooooo I always just assumed the camera was tilted a bit... didn't know the whole world was!

In the Iwata Asks they explain how the top down view actually works. If it were truly top down we'd only see Link's hat.



Mind == Blown

Huh, I guess when the camera pans down to show you becoming a pic on the wall they have to un-tilt everything?

That's pretty awesome! Speaking of awesome....

Good Iwata Asks. It finally makes it clear that that game never started as a remake after all.

I love how Miyamoto brutally shot down all of their ideas and just basically told them "hey, look... just make a game like LTTP. That is a good Zelda game."

Yeah, that was a good read. I sometimes forget how long it takes to make a game - especially a Zelda game. They had essentially been working on it for like, four years!

I literally read that as if Miyamoto had the voice of Navi. LOL!

Played for 2.5 hours and so far this game is a dream come true. This is how I like my Zelda.

The wall mechanic is very welcome... far from a stupid gimmick. The rental system really does change your approach to exploring. The overworld is different enough and similar enough, if that makes sense. The optional mini-dungeons are awesome. The improved shield mechanics, diagonal shooting, and stamina meter all work very well. The updated music sounds awesome and the new music actually seems to fall in the same range of quality. And, still my favorite feature: there really is no obnoxious hand-holding!

I know there is still some first play hype going on, but I can only see the game getting better the next time I pick it up, which should be when I wake up tomorrow. Yaaaaaawn.

Very, very early on right now. Saved in Kakariko Village after being sent there by Princess Zelda. Another huge smile plastered on my face.

Does the game's zoomed in view feel weird or detrimental at all? (Zoomed in, that is, compared to the original LttP)

@PogueSquadron When I first started it felt a tiny bit claustrophobic for a few minutes but I've totally gotten used to it. Runs super smooth even with the 3D on! *COUGHGAMEFREAKCOUGH*

Just noticed these Link Between Worlds posters available on Club Nintendo: 500 coins. Link

Got my Gold XL, it's in my bag... now comes the long work afternoon of just wanting to get the hell out of here and go home and play!

Ahh, finally unlocked the shop earlier! Good to know there's still plenty of item spaces free even after you clear it out! You still have to earn tons of items. Love it! I have a wide assortment of tools already and I've only beaten one dungeon! This game seems soooo good so far. Like, I'm already having more fun with it than any Zelda in recent memory. The way you can use the painting power to get around the world in unique ways to find tons of secrets is super fun! And the multiple ways to solve other problems.

For example (super super minor spoiler, for the well in Kakariko Village) Instead of waiting until you can lift the rocks, you can grab the Cuccoo there and just jump from the ledge and steer your way into the well for a super early 1/4 heart piece!

Took three stores to track down, but she is mine.

I have downloaded the game, but I haven't fired it up yet. Gonna tend to my New Leaf town real quick, maybe catch some more pocket monsters in Pokemon, then head out to Hyrule. I'm psyched!

I totally did that.

Anyway, I just got done with the tower of hera. It was my second dungeon. I also got an extra heart already too! Here is a bad pic of my 3DS!

@sirmastersephiroth

I had kinda noticed that Zelda seemed to be leaning back but thought my eyes were just playing tricks on me.
