"The best game for GameBoy Color"

Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is the best game for GameBoy. It is the second best Zelda game behind A Link to the Past. It is a classic Zelda adventure with a twist.

Story: 9/10
Link finds himself in a new world. He is helped by Din the Oracle of Seasons. When they are celebrating the evil General Onox kidnaps Din. Link must embark on a quest to defeat evil and bring peace back to Holdrum. He gains the power of the seasons, and must save the world again. The story is a classic Zelda story, which is a very good thing.

Graphics: 9/10
The graphics are a bit better than most GBC games. The changing of seasons and the dungeons all look good. They are slightly better than Zelda DX. The graphics are not awesome but they are still good.

Music: 10/10
Cool! The game start with the well known Zelda theme. The music is great and does'nt seem to get old. It gets a good 10.

Sound: 8/10
The sound is great even for GBC. The songs are beeps and boops but it does not effect the music. The swish of a sword, whiz of a boomerang, or screech of the magnet gloves all sound just fine.

Control: 10/10
The bottom line for the controls are that the are simple. You have one item set to the A button and one set to the B button. The controls are effective and easy.

Gameplay: 10/10
Seasons is a very fun game. You get all kinds of different items, and go through cool dungeons. Their are many puzzles and different places to beat. The items are the best part. You get the Rod of Seasons which has the power to change the season from summer to fall to winter to spring. In each season there are things you could not do in any other season. You can also obtain the magnet gloves, which are really neat too. Oracle of Seasons is not really hard but it is not easy. The dungeons all have tricky puzzles and tough enemies. The game itself is very fun and not disappointing.

Replay Value: 8/10
Seasons is fun to play over again. Especially since it is a long game, and by time you beat it, you want to try the beginning again. Also, with Oracle of Seasons, once you beat it, you can continue your same game except on Oracle of Ages. There is really nothing new the second time around.

Buy or Rent:
BUY! This game is way too long to rent. If you rent, you probably won't get to all the cool items and places. You should definitely buy this game.

Overall: 9/10
It is very recommended if you like adventure. Oracle of Seasons is a Zelda game that is the best for GameBoy. It is another classic Zelda tale.
