  • Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was released in early 1992, in North America, for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Since then it has not only held up as one of the greatest games for that system, but also as one of the greatest games of all time.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (VC) Review

  • Summary: Do yourself a favor and download this game (assuming you don't already own it). It's great just to have the convenience of not having to dust off the SNES not to mention that it looks pretty good w/the Wii's emulation. At 800 Wii points it's a pretty good deal and you'll find yourself playing this one over and over.

The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past – Review

GameCritics.com
26 January 2006
  • Excerpt: With his book The Hero With A Thousand Faces , Joseph Campbell created a sort of guide by which just about every myth, legend, or story could be rationalized and even certain patterns among them could be revealed. Almost everything ranging from Homer's The Odyssey to George Lucas' moneymaking machine Star Wars to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings would, when broken down, most likely expose common elements that would transcend the cultural barriers separating them.

Classic NES Series: Legend of Zelda

Portable Review
23 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Back in the glory days of the Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo launched a slew of titles that would go on to become some of the most well known series in video game existence. The Legend of Zelda is one of the most recognizable series amongst these, and Nintendo has blessed us by bringing us the original once again, and it's every bit as good as we remember it. Sweet Memories... First off, just listening to the opening theme brings a tear to my eye.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

  • Conclusion: - Everything that made it a classic in the first place "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is a classic no matter the platform. It’s not a perfect game but it’s bound to keep you happily playing for many hours." For old school fans of the Super Nintendo, I can gloss over this review by writing, “A port of the original,” because from what I can remember of the original not a whole lot has been changed.
  • Pros: - A classic is a classic no matter the platform, - Everything that made it a classic in the first place, - Multiplayer
  • Cons: - Only one active inventory slot means lots of pausing, - Multiplayer is a waste to single players

Nintendo World Report
20 January 2003
  • Summary: The latest 16-bit classic to hit the Game Boy Advance, Legend of Zelda is an amazing gameplay experience today as it was 11 years ago. The all new 2-4 player mode, Four Swords, is an enthralling concoction of teamwork and puzzle solving.
  • Pros: Absolutely perfect game experience, Hasn’t aged a bit, Multiplayer game is really fun
  • Cons: You need a friend if you want to experience Four Swords

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past + Four Swords

Project COE
2 December 2002
  • Conclusion: The music is great, and is definitely one of the high points of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Not many can dismiss the arrangement as just average, because they are incredibly good as far as video game music goes. The sound quality on the Game Boy Advance, however, just isn’t as good as the Super Nintendo incarnation. The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords does have some typical rehashed Zelda themes, but that’s to be expected.
