    One of the strangest Zelda titles to date.

    Before getting into this review, I feel there is one confession I must clarify with the few who may find themselves reading this. I am absolutely terrible at Zelda games. I like them, certainly, but for better or wor... Read Full Review

    Link's first handheld outing is worth a look.

    Despite being a Zelda fan, somehow I missed Link's Awakening the first time around. Probably because I was a stupid child who owned a Sega Game Gear instead of a Game Boy so it eluded me for years. Thankfully the 3DS ... Read Full Review

    This is 4th zelda game I have beaten. I used guide a lot while playing this game. Couldn't have beaten this game without it. That trading event would have taken forever without guide. There are 8 dungeons in this game. F... Read Full Review

    With great graphics, an amazing soundtrack, an interesting story and timless gameplay, LA is a true classic.

    A superb Zelda classic!

    Link's Awakening stands tall beside every one of the games released in the series

    The Zelda series has always been known for the sheer size of its titles and bringing the series to a portable system for the first time ever was a huge challenge for everyone at Nintendo. The process of working with less... Read Full Review
