Z. Z. Za. Zelda! Game Boy!
6 January 2006 | by (Dinosaur Canyon) – See all my reviews

Very big adventure game on a small hand-held system, which is great, because your hands will be glued to the hand-held for some couple of days at a time. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening brings you so much to your hands. Starting from the beginning of the story when Link's boat crashed, you must work your way up to finding a sword and go out on a long adventure.

I remember when a friend from High School introduced this game to me. The day I played Zelda on Game Boy, I had to buy new batteries every other day, refusing to put the Game Boy aside for once. The Legend of Zelda on Game Boy was one fun experience I will never forget.

Gameplay- 8/10 Sound- 10/10; Those lovely melodies will make you remember!!! Funfactor- 9/10
