I thought that the old-school top down view of Four Swords was a refreshing experience of Zelda games in the past, but also a new adventure in terms of the unique places to go and the graphical presentation, which is a lot like that of the Wind Waker for the Gamecube. There are stages in this game, instead of just flat out free-roaming, but it is easy to get into that sort of gameplay quickly because you will be able to start afresh with collecting items that you didn't have a chance to collect in a previous stage. You'll feel a little better about not getting every single thing in a certain stage. I really liked the four player Link action, with or without multiplayer, because it adds a lot more stragety into the many puzzles you'll encounter through-out the game. Four Links(main characters)allow for more enemies and many more explosive battles, that ultimately leave you with a sense of accomplishment and bursts of beautiful color to your pupils.(that's awesome)If you have very sensitive eyes, I wouldn't recommend playing it because of it's frequent intense coloring. Not that easy on the eyes.

Being one who had the "Link to the Past/Four Swords Adventure" game on the game boy advance, I was very sad to find out that you needed more that one of the game boy advances to play "Four swords". So when this game came out, I first thought that you needed at least 2 or more of the advances to play. i'm glad they made it able to play solo.
This game is a lot of fun. My son and I are big zelda fans, and this was very enjoyable for both of us. it was easy and yet very challenging at the same time.(if that made sense.)
I would recommend it to anyone, whether or not you like or even follow the zelda series.
