A Link to the Past Review

Although not the first game to be released in the Zelda series, A Link to the Past is probably one of the most memorable and one of the most popular. A Link to the Past follows Link as he sets out to save the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda, from the evil clutches of Agahnim, a wizard who has taken control of the land. Little does he know, though, that an even greater threat is controlling Agahnim's puppet strings.

The game was originally released in 1991 in North America, but in 2002, a Game Boy Advance version was released. On Game Boy Advance, A Link to the Past is basically the same SNES game, except for a few additions such as Link's shout and the addition of the multiplayer game, Four Swords.

A Link to the Past features something very interesting about it; something that many Zelda fans like. The storyline sounds very classic, but once the player begins to delve deeper into the land of Hyrule as it is corrupted by evil, different interesting elements unfold, and characters provide information and services. The landscape itself is something out of a fantasy book, with mountains, castles, villages, forests, rivers, lakes and deserts. A Link to the Past has many great elements to it.

Sound is an important part of the Zelda series. A Link to the Past (on GBA) includes Link's shout from the Nintendo 64 games, and the music is fantastic and epic.

Graphics are not the newest and most advanced type of technology, being pixelated, but the sprites are colourful and the environments look great, even though they are not in 3D.

The gameplay mechanics are also a great element of the game. Changing weapons and items is not too difficult, requiring the player to simply press START and select the item of choice.

As for fun factor and lasting appeal, the game is great to play, fun and epic. The game will last for a long time, and once the game is completed, another quest is available to play through, so there is no lack of gameplay.

Overall score: 9.5/10
