Storyline

The game takes place roughly 100 years after "Majora's Mask" and is described on the back of the box as being before the first two games, as these characters are the "predecessors of Link and Zelda." Long ago, seven wise men (sages) sealed Ganondorf/Ganon (the same person, except Ganon is his immortal, godly form) in the Golden Realm, which he eventually turned into the 'Dark World.' A strange sorcerer appeared in the land of Hyrule and magically solved all of the land's problems. He was appointed the King's top advisor, however, he ultimately turned on Hyrule, brainwashed the guards, overthrew the king, and took over the land. He started to capture the current sages, descendant of the originals, and transport them to the Dark World. One night, Link hears the voice of Zelda, princess of Hyrule and the leader of the sages, calling him telepathically from inside a Hyrule Castle dungeon.

SNES is a very lucky console...

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System(Or SNES) was a very lucky video game console, because The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was one of its games. A Link to the past is a game that could be compared by other SNES classics like Actraiser, Super Metroid, Sim City 2000, Super Star Wars and others. This game was renovated in 2003, with The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past/Four Swords(Game Boy Advance). The best part of the game was the fun.This game is pure FUN! If you are a game maniac, you have to play at least one time in your whole life this game. My score is 10/10.If I could, I would score 11/10.
