Zelda: A Link Between Worlds....Destructoid Review 6.5.........lolol

A Link Between World's main problem at the end of the day is a complete lack of heart. There's no defining moment, no memorable villains or characters, and no truly "new" items that make their mark on the series. It's certainly playable in every sense of the word, but I didn't feel the magic I had felt so many times before.

In fact, the only real legacy it leaves behind beyond being a serviceable Zelda game is its welcome streamlining, which I hope is carried over to future iterations. It's a great way to return to the world of Link to the Past, but outside of some welcome streamlining, it doesn't surpass it, or even meet it.

May be slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled

FLOP.......lol

AtariKid, we seem to be the only one's who see which reviews were paid off.

Destructoid's review was excellent, and points out some major flaws.

His opinion is wrong

I agree....a good review.

Seems like GS and D... DS.... DO? Destructoid are currently polar opposites.

Yes, let's just post the only bad review this game received *eye roll*

#17 Edited by Supabul (3856 posts) -

It's like the opposite of Knack

Zelda one average review followed by nothing but high scores

Knack one average review followed by nothing but flop's

Sad thing is that I've become so cynical that I find it hard extrapolate much meaning from those facts.

Nah, the game's a total masterpiece. Thank you Nintendo!

And thank you Sony for the PS4.

#20 Posted by AtariKidX (6211 posts) -

@speedfreak48t5p: I agree.......Zelda: A Link Between Worlds it is a very good game.Can't wait to play this new zelda game on my 3DS XL.

#21 Posted by SonofK (1066 posts) -

Still has a 92 on metacritic.

#22 Posted by Heil68 (43594 posts) -

9.0 is a great score. I'm probably just going to GameFly it.

#23 Posted by Aparthide (235 posts) -

9.8 at GameTrailers, 10 on Game Informer.

Well SS got 10 at Game Informer so if their standards haven't changed it might be just as good. That said according to metacritic the average reviewer thinks SS is still better.

I know. That's why I added the metacritic comment. Point still stands.

Hey destructoid. The entire effing game is the defining moment.

Are there a lot of new secrets in the overworld? How many dungeons are there btw?

AtariKidX grasping at straws lolol

How's the Vita doing AtariKidX ? Still destroying the 3DS like you predicted ?

#29 Posted by Kaze_no_Mirai (11151 posts) -

@Aparthide:

Apparently there are 10 total. Some reviews mention secrets chests and items throughout the world but don't really mention the amount.

10 dungeons, plus a tutorial dungeon, plus the final boss dungeon, for twelve, which equals A Link to the Past.

Apparently there's a good amount of secrets in the overworld

I should trade in Pokemon X for this.

Honestly, I might do the same.

Any word on the actual game length ? I find a link to the past short because the dungeons are short, and there's almost no side quest to enter each dungeon. I have been longing for a Good zelda to play though after that horrible excuse for a Zelda game that SW was.

Is this a remake of the SNES one?

#36 Edited by Aparthide (235 posts) -

@charizard1605: @Kaze_no_Mirai:

Thanks. I'm actually kind of worried about the overworld being the same. I just know it's going to annoy me.

#37 Posted by KillzoneSnake (1694 posts) -

Destructoid the best review site. KZ SF 9/10 is correct.

no its a whole new game... a follow up to a link to the past.

9.0 @ GS.

Nostalgia, blinding fanboys of franchises since 1984.

91 at Metacritic.

The Witcher 2 review, which was a 6, was the first and last time I read a Destructoid review.

Nice, focusing on the ONLY average review while ignoring all the perfect scores.

That's system wars for you. Why focus on the good aspects of a game or why give a game a fair chance when you can just cherry pick bad reviews and call everything crap ?

#49 Edited by AznbkdX (3120 posts) -

Weird... Atari's later comments on the game and reviews are like the polar opposite of what I thought this thread was trying to accomplish.

That is really awkward, unless I misunderstand the comments and the ops intentions.

Someone's trying too hard to use the word flop
