First Impressions - A Link Between Worlds

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - Nintendo 3DS




First Impressions

The first game I played on the Super NES was The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. As a matter of fact it was the first game in the Zelda series I played. I poured so much time into that game that its not even funny and while Ocarina of Time will always be my favorite Zelda game; A Link to the Past will always hold a special place in my personal gaming history. So its safe to say that I am officially stoked to be playing the sequel to that classic title. At first glance you would think that it is just a high quality update of that game, but once you start playing you get a sense of familiarity along with frustration. Not the bad kind of frustration mind you, but that good frustration that comes with knowing that while you should know where everything is you realize you don't and makes the adventure feel fresh. By now most people have seen the trailer for the game and have noticed the art style. Me personally, I like it. It matches with the art theme that the villain's magic utilizes. On the subject of this games villain, his name is Yuga and he is like a cross between Ghirahim from Skyward Sword and a young Ganondorf from Ocarina of Time. He's a wizard, he's a colossal douche, and I really can't wait to get my hands on him. Oh yeah I can't believe I almost forgot this but early in your adventure you meet a character named Ravio. This is the guy that lets you rent items to complete or get through quests. Some people may not like this but I am loving that gameplay addition as it is coming in handy right now. I am far from finished with this game but I have to say that I am enjoying it so far. I have not had a chance to do those streetpass fights against Shadow Link yet so I will make sure to talk about that in my full review. Until then check out the trailer below and let me know what you think. Is it on your list of games to pick up or what? Thanks for reading.
