Very Good

Imitation... The most sincere form of flattery

I am huge Zelda fan with the original and link to the past being two of my all time favorites. that being said this a retro gamers dream come true. It's nostalgic feel and charm are through the roof. The improved inventory system that let's you cycle though weapons without having to hit the start button is time and patience saving. The coolest part is a sword that is nearly the length of the screen when at full health is awesome as well. This may come across as a blatant rip off of the 8 and 16 bit zelda's but i think imiatation is the most sincere form of flattery. With games being so great even a less original tribute game is still very good.

3D-dot Game Heros is basicley a tribute to the old NES games(Legend of Zelda, Dragon Quest etc.). The story is your a hero who,of course, has to save the world. This games pretty much runs like Link to the Past(which isn't at all a bad thing) fight through dugeons, buy items in town, and explore the overworld. The cool thing is the world and characters are all made up of blocks and you can even create your own hero or choose from the premade ones. There's lots side quests, secrets, refrences, and difficulty. It'll take you about 25+ hours to do everything(complete the side quests, the main story, find and upgrade all the swords) and theres even a new game+ with added difficulty. You've even got to agcnowlage the blurieness in far away places, lense flare, and the way your enemies dye in a shower of there pixles. Great game!

Dots Dots and more Dots

I always wondered how the Legend of Zelda would play and look if it was made out of dipping dots. Well now I know! Classic adventure killing creatures and other bad guys while gathering other stuff to save the world. I know heard it and done it before a thousand times over right. This game is basically a Zelda game but prettier. Its a fun adventure for the old school kind of folk. If you want fast paced action and all your NPP and the main guy talking on end well this is not the game for you. You search for stuff and you read. You beat a bad guy and then you read. Good Times Folks!
