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.

Crazy Credits

The ending is broken into three parts. Link defeats Ganon and touches the Triforce after it speaks to him, restoring the Sacred Realm. We see various people across Hyrule Link met on his journey, and lastly see the closing credits played over footage of the newly-restored Sacred Realm. The credits end by stating how many lives it took you to complete certain dungeons, and close out with a "total games played" message, staying how many lives you took total to beat the game on your file.

One of the best video games ever.
14 September 2001 | by (Elgin, IL) – See all my reviews

Spectacular storyline, dangerous dungeons, difficult bosses, and an awesome array of weaponry/equipment. This game is the best in the series. With a huge expanse of land for you to explore, there are mysteries to be solved, items to be found, and maidens to be saved. Play this game. You'll enjoy it.
