Did You Know?


This is the first Zelda game largely presented in a side-scrolling format (akin to the Super Mario Bros. games). Though this decision probably originated from experimentation on the part of the game's creators, the change in gameplay style from the first Zelda game has drawn nearly equal proportions of praise and disapproval from fans of the series.

This game is great! If you are into RPG's you'll like this one. Now true is doesn't compare to RPG's of now but for 1989 this and Dragon Warrior were on the top of every RPG Gamer's Top 10 List, hands down. If you can get a copy of Nintendo Power from 1988, 1989, and 1990, you'll see what real gamers thought of this masterpiece.
