Perfect

The perfect sequel.

The Title of A Link Between Worlds alone is just enough to send chills down any Zelda fans spine; A new look at a classic world, with some twists.

In my personal opinion, this is the best title in the series since Wind Waker. A vintage feel in a new game, nothing gets better than that. Graphics are amazing, love the art style, the story will absolutely have you drawn in, and making you want to play it again and again! Definitely worth every minute of gameplay.

Excellent

The best Zelda game in a long time

Even as a longtime Zelda devotee, I've been less than blown away by the Zelda games of recent years. "Skyward Sword", "Twilight Princess", and "The Minish Cap" all struck me as rather bland and formulaic, as if Nintendo were simply phoning it in. "A Link Between Worlds", however, gives me hope for the eventual Wii U installment of the series, as this spiritual successor to "A Link to the Past" is a fresh, fun throwback to a less jaded time. It's a bouncy, fast-paced, yet deep adventure with lots of stuff to find and explore, and it's blessedly light on exposition and dialogue. The dungeons - which had become a slow, confusing slog in recent games - are quick, well-designed, and actually fun! And the "rent any item you want at any time" system proves to be a marvelous break from the traditional Zelda formula.

All in all, I haven't had this much fun with a Zelda game in at least a decade.

i spent maybe 6 hours playing this game. its by far the easiest zelda game ive ever played. dungeons were too simple and boss fights took less than a minute to fight even on a first try. i personally only died once and it was at the end of the game and i had already purchased every item. the puzzles in this game were simple not hard to follow and the "twist" ending could be seen from miles away by anyone. m night shymalan could do better honestly. i give the game a 5 and thats for its art design and quick responding controls. not worth buying but worth renting if its shipping time is short.
