The Ultimate Zelda series from the world's best designer, Shigeru Miyamoto!
Shigeru Miyamoto has done it once again! Presenting to you is the greatestaction-RPG ever made for the Super Nintendo. Zelda has always been my favouriteaction-RPG series at all times and it has proven to live up to its honourablereputation.
Zelda:A Link to the Past was made in 1992. The story is pretty much likeits predeccessor. You wake up, realising that Princess Zelda is in dangerand that an evil wizard is planning to annhilate the world. You begin yourquest to save the Princess Zelda in the land of Hyrule, collect threependants to get the legendary Master Sword.
When i first played the game, i was completely stunned! The graphics hadimproved tenfold over the original and the levels in the outdoors areextremely huge. Talk over countless exploration! Talk about interactionwith the enviroments. Graphics are asolutely gorgeous and spectacular. Talkabout the forest maze, rain...! Man, it's so awesome!
Gameplay is what Zelda:A Link to the Past shines. With plenty of exploration,you will find yourself often entangled in a situation which you need tostretch your head and solve the puzzles. Survive and solve mind-blendingpuzzles using the various tools you have gathered.
Control are really good and i don't have any problem with it. The gamegets even cooler when you have gained the ability to dash.
Music and sound are truly awesome. Some of the tunes are really good,though isn't the quality of Final Fantasy series. Considering it's anaction-RPG and they don't have any Nobuo, i will say it's great. The soundis definitely good. Talk about the sound effects when rain falls, the clankingof the sword, lighting the torches and so on.
Zelda:A Link to the Past will take you at least 20 hours to complete. Talkabout the awesome replay value. Even if you have completed it once, you willfind yourself in a dilemnia situation like me, playing it over and over again.Part III of Zelda series is clearly the best SNES action-RPG.
Zelda has revolutionised the action-RPG series, setting a new fundamental.[Remember the PlayStation's Alundra?]
Story : 8.0/10.0
Music : 9.0/10.0
[I still give it a 10 though the overall score don't add up to be.]
Rating: 5.0 - Flawless
