  • Summary: You'll want to link yourself to these worlds as soon as possible
  • Pros: A simply brilliant revisiting of classic 2D Zelda design with modern sensibility; fantastically designed dungeons and challenges; new abilities require creative puzzle solutions; lots of side quests and mini-games to explore; surprising online functionality; item rental system adds a unique twist to the Zelda formula; superb audio/visual presentation.
  • Cons: Inconsequential story is rehashed from countless other Zelda games; the game eventually ends.

Reviving an Old Classic | The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review

  • Conclusion: On a related note, from walking on walls to jumping up and down between floors of dungeons, A Link Between Worlds seems to a perfect fit for the 3DS. The graphics are crisp, animations are familiar and the 3D aspect of the system proved to be quite fun, and useful, while playing through the game. Truth be told, I had the 3D function turned off most of the time.
  • Pros: +Great New Mechanics, +Exploring Encouraged
  • Cons: -Little Replayability

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS)

  • Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (ALBW) strikes a healthy balance between nostalgia and innovative gameplay in its 15-hour campaign. Having the same top-down perspective as A Link to the Past, ALBW shares its predecessor’s visual style while shaking up the gameplay at every turn. While I was not a fan of how they gave Link access to all of his weapons near the beginning of the game, I appreciated the new open-world feel.
  • Pros: Open world; fun puzzles; interesting bosses
  • Cons: Finding treasure is usually boring

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review

PlayDevil

  • Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda series has been stagnating for a while now. Over the last couple of games, the incredibly popular yet undeniably stale formula has changed very little. Returning to an immediately recognizable Hyrule, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is Nintendo's laziest retread yet.

  • Excerpt: Zelda games have been at a bit of a weird place for me. I came off Skyward Sword on an absolute high. I was impressed by the way the game managed to tie itself into the existing story but also the way it managed to serve as a kind of origin story for the main events of the series we’ve been enjoying for twenty plus years now.
