Well I had to write a review for the simple fact that from reading other reviews I have got the impression that people don't understand the intention behind this game. ZOMG ITS JUST LIKE ZELDA HOW is a pretty silly thing to say.
This game was made to replicate that feeling of playing an 8 bit game and it took it all from Zelda and tried to make an enjoyable game. It plays just like the old Zelda's did which is great. There are new elements to it but it is still the same old game.
If you are looking to play a new game with a lot of nostalgia then this is your game. I found it really amusing and reminding me of all of the time I spent playing zelda over and over before I had the ability to buy or rent any game that I wanted. It plays and handles well and offers so many side quests and extra things to do that two playthroughs for the full effect would be the best.
For trophy hunters this is not an easy game to platinum and will take a bit of time and is extremelly frustrating in some parts. If you play just for trophies then this is not your game.
If you want a modern take on a classic game then this is your game. If you want to play zelda then go play it and stop complaining about a game that is making a tribute to it not copying it.

Zelda......ya its like that but to me it makes old school zelda lay flat. With all the gadgets and swords you get it makes the game something you want to strive for. If it is not making your sword longer or stronger its finding all the secrets spread around the world. The graphics are not the best but then again we are talking about squares put together to form a game like it was from 1985. The music is very nice and at times you think you are playing a game you have played before. i would recomend this game to anyone who loves nostalgia or just play a game similar to Zelda. I contemplated buying it but decided not to.
