The weakest entry that I have played in the Zelda series.
6 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Granted, I still found it somewhat fun to play. I hear there is a worse Zelda incarnation that came on this strange media player back in the 90's. I saw this system advertised on television and they did show a clip of Zelda and it did look rather bad, but I have never played it so I can not say for sure. This game takes place some time after part one and is a direct sequel to that game. Zelda has been put to sleep by some magician and Ganon's minions are trying to revive their former boss and all they need to do so is Link's death! For some reason Link must once again go through dungeons to get what he needs to help awaken the princess. The story is a bit off here as I had no clue as to who was the main bad guy or who that one character was at the end that made Link's shadow come to life. That is one of the reasons this one is a bit weak. The play is different too, as this time you walk on a map like in an rpg and you encounter enemies who appear on the map and fight them in a side scroll level. The dungeons are also side scroll. Link also can visit towns and this is also a bit more rpg than the first, but the towns are rather bland except you can learn magic here which is also a new feature and somewhat pointless except for that cure and defense spell. You also level up in this particular Zelda game. So all in all it is okay and the most different of all the Zelda games so worth a try if you ever run across it.
