Good game for Zelda fans, although first timers in the saga will not cacth a lot of hints from previous versions.

When I first played it, my mind changed completely. The game starts out great, with a story that’s quite good, although it doesn’t end quite as good.
We learn what happened to the land of Hyrule, and why this Link is not the Link from Hyrule, although we get some hints about where the new hero comes from.
The game moves swiftly, although it has some minor problems.
The new additions are quite good, although some of them were not necessary. We can now rotate and zoom in or out the camera angle with the C-stick, although it wasn’t really necessary in previous Zelda (why include it here). Link has some new moves, like rope climbing and swinging (great choice) and crouch with the R button (this one is not so good, since it is seldom used). Maybe the crouch command could have been left for the action button.
Another flaw of the game: it’s too short. You only have five “official dungeons” to explore.
What I really liked about this game is that it has some “Gameboy Stile”, not only in it’s graphics, but also in boss’s fights and dungeons. It really reminded me much more of the Oracles games than the N64 generation.
All this issues aside, the game is great. You’ll just have to see it for yourself. It acts as an appetizer between “Majora´s Mask” and “Twilight Princess”, but shouldn’t be misjudged.
