Quick Overview
  • Recommendation: Good game 3D Zelda game +1

  • Short (30 hours or so)

  • Available with a download code in some 3DSXL models

Spoiler-free story intro:
As young Link, you find out that an evil mage is turning some people into paintings and collecting them. There's a reason for the people he's collecting and he's after Zelda, too. Later you learn that he is from another world called Lorule and the princess there, Hilda, needs your help. During the game you'll go back and forth between worlds by turning into a 2D painting and walking into cracks that can be found on the world.

Detailed Review: Last night I finished The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It was a great game, but I finished it rather quickly. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that it seems like a short game, it didn't take very long to download. When I got my 3DSXL, I got the edition that comes with this game (seen at the end of the embedded video). I had to download the game from the Nintendo Store using a code that came in the package.

The game looks like A Link to the Past, perhaps it's a bit of a sequel. Still, the game looks really good. Not only does the game look good, but the music is fantastic as well. I often found myself enjoying the music, especially in the dungeons.

I thought it was a great game, but it didn't take very long to complete it. Sadly, I'm now at the point where I don't know what to play next as the game I was playing was over too soon. Still, I recommend the game to anyone who enjoys the Zelda series.

Link Between Worlds is being sold as a sequel to Link to the Past which makes it pretty interesting to me. About how many hours do you think you sunk into it until you completed it?

I'd guess around 30, but that's just a guess, I'm not really sure.

Whoa, that's not a small amount of time. BUT I guess compared to Terraria it's pretty miniscule.

Absolutely! I might have spent around 20 hours on it, I'm not sure, but it was just over too quickly. I know I played Pokemon X a little bit longer, or at least I'm sure I did anyway.

Now I'm sitting here, not at all sure of what to play. I'm tempted to go to Gamestop, but there are only a few things I have in mind to play next. I don't know what to do, grrr, I hate this feeling. LOL

Hahahahahaha. Yeah, I need to do that. I haven't been able to get on and play since we've had a lot of no school days due to the weather and my son has been here in my room most of the time. It's kind of hard to get on and play with you due to the time difference and you doing the same (not playing GTA with a kid around).

Yeah, by the time I can get on GTA it's usually after 11pm eastern time, so that's pretty late to start playing. You might have better luck meeting up with @Travis, as he's on the east coast as well. Still, if you're ever up late on a Friday night or something let's cause some mischief in Los Santos. :D
