Worth buying?

It's one of the worse Zelda games, but it's still a Zelda game. If you're really hurting in terms of money, and you're bought into the hype, you should probably wait.

What makes you say it's one of the worst?

While it was enjoyable, the changes felt like it hindered the experience overall. The dungeons felt shallow, short, and unsatisfying, plot progression was nonexistent in Lorule, the item problem we've had since TP wasn't fixed, general lack of difficulty . . . don't get me wrong, it's an okay game, but in my opinion one of the worse ones in the franchise, compared to it's kin. Minish Cap and Spirit Tracks both had better dungeon designs, with better length and more satisfying payoff, and they had HALF the dungeons ALBW had. And they were just as long in total, in ST's case LONGER than ALBW.

I have to say that A Link Between Worlds is one of my favorite Legend of Zelda games so far. It's on the easy side but it's still enjoyable. I like it better than A Link to the Past. The game is joining my list of favorite Zelda games along with Twilight Princess, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Spirit Tracks, Ocarina of Time, and Link's Awakening.

There's no longer a need for Magic Cape/Cane of Byrna. Yellow Potion replicates them, and the upgrades of all the weapons, + the purple potion make the medalions obsolete as well. There's more to this game than even ALttP.

Anyway, the game is fantastic, and definitely one of the best Zelda's. Great dungeons, good bosses, tons of fun overall.

Link's Awakening is my favorite 2D Zelda. This game is on the same tier.

Literately, they dumbed down the game a lot, if you want to pay $40, or $30 if it's still on sale at Kmart. I wouldn't recommend. I think most people like it over nostalgia and the whole going on walls adds a new element but seems like it's lacking something. I completely beat the game without scratching my head, the exploration element is pretty much gone with everything being open but feeling so small.

Easily the best Handheld Zelda and almost console level but not actually there because Console games are a fair bit larger.

Also, don't think (as I did) that this has the same greatness that is the original A Link to the Past. You won't be getting Quake, Bombos, or Ether spells. You won't be cruising around with your cool Magic Cape or using your awesome Magic Mirror to transport between worlds. No Cane of Somaria or Byrna either. I guess I expected the old game with additions, not things taken away.


Purple Potion is an ether medallion attack but it just kills everything rather than freezes still uses lightning.
Yellow Potion is the magic cape.
Sand Rod is pretty much like Somaria except a lot more useable in a fight and all around more creative for dungeon use.
Byrna is gone but we have the tornado rod which just all around more unique.

Dumbed down by making it exactly like ALttP but with natural improvements like analogue movement? Because the only other true change is the energy meter and really that's basically not better or worse than just regular ammo and magic. Also no I heavily disagree with that, the exploration element is larger here than it ever has been. It's literally turned into an open world exploration, the exploration element is larger here than it has been in any Zelda sans the original legend of Zelda and there is more to find here than in the original ALttP by far.
