A Link Between Two Worlds is an excellent Zelda game that does its direct predecessor proud. Those who grew up playing top down Zelda games such as A Link to the Past will not be disappointed. This newest title captures the magic of the Zelda formula perfectly, while making a few tweaks (rental system) that make it feel fresh. It's not long and a bit on the easy side for a Zelda vet, but definitely worth a weekend of your time.
A Link Between Worlds takes a classic and successful formula from A Link to the Past and reinvents and reinvigorates the series. Some of the tedious back tracking and item finding have been eliminated with fast travel now integrated and a items rental system that helps promote more exploration and less Redundancy.
Wall Merging mechanic adds new depth to dungeons and exploration. This further challenges the user to look beyond what is seen on screen and what secrets could lie when viewed from a different angle. The Wall merging mechanic alone helps invigorate this much needed Franchise.
Everything you love from the past. Aside from the new mechanics, fans of the original link to the past will be overwhelmed with Nostalgia, Fans will easily recognize returning music and tunes now remastered for the 3DS. Take a trip to memory lane as you relive Hyrule as it was once seen in a Link to the Past. Its almost a crime not to rent or purchase this game.

A Link to the Past is highly praised for the great gameplay it delivered on the Super Nintendo. A Link Between Worlds takes everything that made the Super Nintendo game great and adds even more spectacular puzzles and dungeons to explore. The game handles beautifully and is an absolute must-play on the 3DS. Most Zelda games deliver and this one is not one to miss out on. A masterpiece, in my opinion.
