Great game, as Zelda's always are. As usual you have to run everywhere multiple times, but at least this time you can fly across the maps using the broom. LOVE the puzzles. Would have been better on a 60 inch HDTV than a 3DS though.
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.

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.
