    Best game on the GBA!! Minish Cap delivers in every aspect

    The Good: Classic Zelda formula is familiar, but changed enough to deliver a fresh new take on the series; amazing graphics, some of the best on the GBA; balance of shrinking to Minish size and staying regular size is pe... Read Full Review

    Who would have thought a game featuring an elven boy and a talking hat could become a classic?.....

    It may be a little Premature, but I am willing to bet that this year’s Gameboy Advance Game of the Year has debuted a mere 10 days into 2005. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is one of those rare titles tat blends ele... Read Full Review

    Very easy and i did not relaize the game would be over so quickly

    The Zelda games for the hand held have always been fun for those long road trips or for any reason whatsoever. This game was so easy and so short that when i beat it i was expecting more but it kind of just ended. It ... Read Full Review

    Fans of Zelda, rejoice!

    Take some time and play this game. Really play it. Minish Cap provides hours of the classic Zelda action, all in GBA's enhanced beauty. I don't know how I've been surviving witout a handheld of my own. This game is as ad... Read Full Review

    Provacitive implication of the word "Zelda"

    This is possibly the most important game in the TLOZ series yet. I think this game would be 999% better if it were on the GC or even Revolution. From the begining to the end, this game is non-stop fun. I have played this... Read Full Review

    Could not put this game down!

    I love Zelda games, and in fact, they are my favorite series of video games EVER! Now with me, I almost like these simple 2D style Zelda games more than the 3D ones that you would find on GameCube or Nintendo 64. The gam... Read Full Review

    Absoluetly fantastic! Most say it's too short, but I disagree... <br /> [caution..spoilers?]

    This game is just great. I've been playing zelda for ages, and this game includes many things from the others, such as the [attacking] dead hands, tingle, and/or the ocarina. =] But, it isn't like the others, as you have... Read Full Review

    Flagship is much more capable than this.

    It’s been a long time, but the GBA finally gets its first original Zelda title. It seems that no Nintendo system is complete without the big N’s major franchises making an appearance. It was only a matter of time befor... Read Full Review

    A true jewel of innovations.

    With a platform like the Game Boy Advance and a fairly late release in the console's life, it was difficult to expect anything innovative out of The Minish Cap, even from a Legend of Zelda game. Yet, somehow, Nintendo ma... Read Full Review
