A Link to the Past is one of my favorite games of all time, as well as my introduction to the Zelda series, so A Link Between Worlds was a game I had dreamed of for a very long time. Though it has some very large shoes to fill, it gracefully and seemingly effortlessly creates an incredible new adventure that tugs at my nostalgic heartstrings while distinguishing itself as an inventive game in the series. While sharing quite a lot with A Link to the Past, it really becomes its own game with clever use of 3D in puzzles and an incredible new item system. Link Between Worlds stunned me by becoming one of my favorite Zelda's, and one of my favorite 3DS games to date. Good job, Nintendo. You've created another masterpiece.
The Zelda Franchise is a big named game series that ha done a lot of gimmicky stuff over the years.. And this game proves that the older formula of exploration is still timeless in and of itself... The game adapted something almost new by allowing players to gain access to the various tools early on, but something like it has been tried before but that was back in the 8 bit Zelda game.. The stamina gauge is a new take on tools that lends a new look on how the tools can be more efficiently used both in combat and in exploration.. This game is an alright sort of game but it is rather short, though I only got it a couple of days ago and I already beat it.. It is still worth owning, but i think i will wait for the price to drop since I already finished it.. Try Before you buy..
