Link's Awakening
19 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Link's Awakening is the first hand-held Zelda and the first one to diverge from the Triforce, Ganon, and Zelda structure. This one instead takes place on a random island. A lot of people love this game, but I don't know why. In my opinion, it's one of the weaker Zelda games out there. Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are far from my favorites, but they are both better and more interesting games. They both have a better story and overall have more to offer. As I remember, Link's Awakening does have some decent game play, but everything else about it is really dated. The music to these older games is hard to listen to. The first two Zelda games actually have better music than this. Yeah, we have the option of turning it off, but I like to have music while playing a game.

Link's Awakening is easy to play; it's not excessively difficult, but overall it just doesn't add that much to the series, in my opinion.
