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?

One thing I'm wondering is do we ever get to keep the items? Like it you be cool if eventually we got to keep all the items instead of just renting them. I do like the item rental concept for this type of Zelda, but I would still like to actually permanently keep them.

@Brook You can buy them later on for a much higher price than renting.

Dunno if I'll ever buy them, I'm kinda psyched about the punishment for dying being losing all my items and having to rent them again! Every time I get low on hearts I play COMPLETELY DIFFERENTLY. Makes it thrilling!

It will be especially nerve wracking in Hero Mode... which I really wish was unlocked from the start. It would be awesome to feel really tested on an initial playthrough of a Zelda game once again.

The only bummer to not purchasing the items is that you can't upgrade rentals. But then that would make the game more difficult, of course.

@Hinph Oh there's a Hero Mode after you beat it? YESSS. I didn't even know that, so you basically just doubled my enjoyment of the game. :p

@Xbob42

I'm happy you said doubled your enjoyment and not spoiled everything. Is that a spoiler? Heh. Sorry to anybody who considers it to be.

@Hinph NG+ isn't a spoiler for me, it's a feature to get excited about that should be on the back of the box!

@Xbob42

Doesn't bother me either to hear that. I kind of assume it in many of these games these days.

A harder difficulty mode isn't a spoiler! There was a big debacle over this when Skyward Sword came out.

Played the game for about an hour today. I really, really like it! It's been a looooong time since I've played A Link to the Past, but I'm kind of getting Ocarina of Time vibes from this game. I love the music. The guitar theme at the beginning of the game was great. Can't wait to play more.

This game is solid as hell, and I have yet to reach the first dungeon. I'm taking notes for my review as I play. I can't wait to play some more tomorrow.

Best part of this game is the clearly the Streetpass mode

I only played a small bit of it last night, but I can tell I'm going to love this game. Link moves along at such a speedy clip! I really like that. Sluggish heroes aren't desirable.

The wonderfullness of this game is simply overwhelming, they've tweaked the Zedla formula to perfection and made it feel 100% new and fresh while still pulling on all the nostalgia heartstrings. It's simply a masterpiece, this game is to classic Zelda what Metroid Fusion was to classic Metroid, a perfect modernization while losing none of the atmosphere and mystery in the process. So streamlined, so fast, so much action and adventure, just the right amount of story thrown in, I love this game. Love.

Best Zelda game since the 90's, easily. My only gripes so far are barely even worth mentioning. Stuff like "hey, that's not the right sound for when I collect a heart piece" or the fact that it has to tell you when you collect a key or Maiamai each time. But not a single game design flaw yet, just like LTTP!

If they take the lessons that they have learned from old Zelda design and combine it with the best things about 3D Zelda games for the Wii U title, it could be the best game evah.

@Hinph
Haha, I have one of those weird gripes too, it's that when you open a treasure chest the lid just disappears instead of getting a lid opening animation. The devils in the details!
Posted: 11/23/13, 21:16:26
Hah. Didn't notice that one.

If only I had as little to complain about with all games. After 6 hours with Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and the DS games, I had a list of things that actually pissed me off.
Posted: 11/23/13, 21:40:05
I actually kind of like the sound of the treasure chest lids disappearing, 'cause it seems like a faithful nod to the old games that did the same thing. Having the wrong sound for picking up a heart piece will annoy the hell out of me, though.

This whole game has started to piss me off.
Posted: 11/23/13, 22:43:01
Just played for two hours. I think I love this game. It may already be my favorite Zelda.

The other day I played a little LTTP for the first time in about ten years....and this immediately feels so, so much better. I don't think I can go back to 8-way movement in a 2D Zelda after even such a short time with analog movement in this game.

@GameDadGrant
What's yer problem GDG?

@deathly_hallows

It's just too damn good. It's so good it's pissing me off!

The pacing so far is excellent. No overly long tutorials. It's all, "Let's go on an adventure you guys!"

And then they do.
