Summary: This game is fun for sure, the wall merging thing being super cool, but I had to deduct a star for a few reasons. First is that the game is by far the easiest Zelda I've ever played. I literally have defeated every boss on the first try without dying and I'm at the last dungeon of the game.
Summary: Link Between Worlds really changes the formula with the wall painting mechanic and renting/buying the tools for the dungeons. However the rental system really limited the design of the puzzles since you they only choose to use one tool per dungeon.
Summary: I was skeptical when I found out that Nintendo was planning to release a remake, er, sequel to the all-time Super NES classic the Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and even more skepitcal when I read that the game was planning on using the same overworld as LTTP, but with different dungeons.
Summary: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was one of my favorite games as a kid. So, when I found out that A Link Between Worlds was a sequel to A Link to the Past, I could't wait to play it. I replayed A Link to the Past in preparation for my return to the same world in A Link Between Worlds.
Summary: I would call myself a Legend of Zelda expert. I have played every Zelda game that has ever come out, multiple times. I love them all (The original Ocarina of Time is still my favorite). However, this game felt somewhat short/simple.
it's never going to be really remembered as an all-time great or amazing Zelda game

This is a very fun game. If you are expecting this to be ...

Summary: This is a very fun game. If you are expecting this to be a remake of a link to the past, it isn't. While the worlds have a very similar layout, most of the dungeons, characters, and a good amount of the enemies have changed.
