Possibly the best Zelda game ever.
27 December 2001 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Link has defeated Ganon (again!) and sets off for an adventure. His ship is caught in a deadly storm, which destroys the ship (possibly his entire crew as well) and leaves him on an island inhabited by strange people, friendly animals, and evil monsters.

As Link, you must set out to wake the Wind Fish, who is the only creature who can set you free of the island. To wake the Wind Fish, you must gather the eight instruments of the sirens, which are scattered about Koholint Island.

There are many puzzles in this game, and they don't frustrate you as bad as other games (like Myst and Riven). This game consists of lots of action and adventure and a great plot and storyline. The characters are even kind of realistic in their actions, and the music is actually quite good (just imagine it orchestrated).

If you are a fan of the Zelda series or even action adventure games, this one is a must have. It follows the Zelda storylines well and fits in with the rest of the games, even though it takes place in a land totally different from Hyrule.
