A Video Game to end all Video Games...
28 April 1999 | by (Hastings, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

This Zelda has enchanted our minds with whimsy and fantasy. The lush detail and the riveting story makes it so powerful, so righteous, you'd be saying good-bye to reality within a few minutes. The emotions there had a real touch and added atmosphere to the game. It's like something we'd love to see in a theatre. This is what happened with Titanic, the movie monopolized the movie box office, while Zelda monopolized the video game industry. This is truly the best game of all time... For now. Because later we'll see a better Zelda, and we'll hopefully experience the power and beauty of a new fantasy world.
