I've always been a fan of The Legend of Zelda. I've beaten OoT dozens of times, and have played and beaten Link's Awakening and a Link to the Past. When I heard about this game, I was expecting it to be another masterpiece by Nintendo, and I was not disappointed.
The nostalgia of the game itself as well as all of its' new and very interesting features kept me entertained from start to finish. Do not even hesitate to buy this game. I bought it at launch, and while it did take me a few months to get around to beating it, it was worth every penny that I spent.

When I saw trailers for this game I first thought "Chibi Link? Really? Making Link all cute doesn't really mix well with the games for me, like Toon link did for WindWaker, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and Minish Cap" But since like always Zelda always has a Limited Edition bundle and I wanted the last bundle that came with Ocarina of Time 3D and I never got it. So I took the chance to buy the bundle and of course A Link Between Worlds came with it as a Digital Download. I instantly got hooked and could barely put the handheld system down. The graphics which bring you into a bright vivid world of Hyrule, The fighting system and weapons that you use to defeat enemies and enter dungeons, and the levels were a blast to play. The story was amazing and it made clear what part of the Zelda timeline is represents. As you get deeper and deeper into the game the story gives you that something that you're looking for in a great game as it unfolds. As you get through the Dungeons in the Dark World that is now named Lorule you can get special items to upgrade your weapons and armor. All and all if you're new to the Zelda series this is a good game to get yourself introduced into the world of Hyrule!
If you are looking for an adventure in the world of 'The legend of Zelda" you are in for a ride. Its a great little game on the 3DS! This game has all of the old elements like puzzles and bosses but unfortunately you have access to all of the items to get you through the various dungeons. I wished it was a bit harder and had better rewards for explorations.
