5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game. Glad to see it rereleased. June 19 2003
Format:Video Game
In 1992 Nintendo released A Link To The Past. As the title indicates, this is a prequel to the other two Zelda games that were out at the time. And finally, the game has gotten a GBA rerelease, along with a bonus multiplayer adventure! Read on to see how it measures up.
Graphics: 4.25/5
Not too fancy, but not horrible either. This is how graphics SHOULD be in this kind of game! The graphics in the Four Swords multiplayer adventure are a lot more cutesy than the ones in the regular game.
Play Control. 4.5/5
It takes getting used to at first, but ultimately it's a very satisfying scheme. You'll love it.
Challenge: 3.75/5
The game isn't terribly difficult. The real challenge is in the dungeons. You'll find yourself solving all kinds of puzzles. Also, there are pieces of heart (this was the first game to have them) to hunt down. Finding them all is kind of a challenge in its own right.
Theme/Fun: 5/5
Fun IS this game. Put simply this game is so addicting, that once you start playing, you're not gonna have a life outside of it. Okay, maybe that's exaggerating a bit, but it's still damn good fun. This is only added to by some mini-games and side quests.
Music/Sound: 3.75/5
The music isn't great, but it certainly has its moments. Like the second NES Zelda, the music really matches the mood of your atmospheres. The sound is basic and to the point - enough said there.
Storyline: 4.25/5
A young boy and his uncle get a telepathic call from a captured Princess who needs rescue. The uncle gets injured beyond fighting condition and gives the boy his sword. Soon enough he sets out on a quest to eliminate evil. Overall a good story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great classic; sound is a bit off though June 23 2005
Format:Video Game
An excellent rendition of a classic must-play game. My only complaint is that the sound is not very good on this port. While the GBA has always had limited sound capabilities, this game in particular has very poor sound compared to the SNES original (from 1992!).
Otherwise the game is a perfect port and great for getting that quick Zelda fix. Go back and play this once you're done with The Minish Cap ;)

I have played about 4 Zelda games altogether, and this was the best ever!!! I haven't even played the multiplayer Four Swords adventure yet, and I give it 5 stars already!
Plot: The plot doesn't really have any real effect on the game itself, though there are some hidden twists. +1
Graphics: Not the best I've ever seen, but works fine for the gameplay. +1.5
Gameplay: I've yet to see better. There are amazingly vast series of beasties, and each one is unique. Every item you get is usefull, the dungeons are fun, every boss is great, hard to beat but not too hard. I love it. +3
Sound: The only thing I didn't love.. The sounds don't always suit the situition, and it's like the whole games music is
balanced on a few songs that keep being recycled. -1
Replay Value: O.K., I guess. +.5
All in all, if you want a good game to play for a while, then I suggest you try Legend of Zelda Games(this one in particular).

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome May 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This game (like the SNES version) rocks. It has got to be one of the best ever made. Its good and long like a video game should be. Not for the faint hearted, it's a game (unlike windwaker)that will push your gaming abilities to the limit. (i'm not kidding this game is haaard) The graphics are just fine for this kind of game (also unlike windwaker[I hated that cell-shading crap])and the music is great(for a videogame). You definatly should buy this one.
(This review only applies to the singal player game. I never even played the multiplayer game, but a game this good can stand on its own)

5.0 out of 5 stars its not over April 9 2004
Format:Video Game
sure if you bought this game and beaten a link to the past,you would say that you where done with the a link to the past.
you may be done with fourswords and a link to the past and say you were done.
but its not over.
Link to the past fans kneel as if you thought beating both games 100% was all,your wrong.
there is more.
once you beat both games.
somewhere around the pyrimid.
there lies the last and hardest dungeon:
The palace of the four sword...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Zelda game of all time! Feb. 4 2004
Format:Video Game
If you owned a standard NES and were a Legend Of Zelda addict youll love this game even more than the first.The graphics are some of the best on the Game Boy Advance and the action is wonderful.As Link you solve puzzles but be warned some can be frustrating.I think the puzzles are the downside of this game.What makes it a masterpiece are the action and challenge of it all.It was the first sign that the Zelda series was evolving.Dont get me wrong the original Legend Of Zelda was great and a classic but A Link To The Past is more substantial and addictive.I say get this game.You wont be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy it secondhand on internet - first hand it is 2 expensive
anno 2004, this game is depressingly ugly to look at, so ugly that it hinders my gameplay experience. the ratings for THIS zelda are far too high and imo only based on nostalgia. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars For those of you who just tuned in...
This has got to be, along with a few other titles, the biggest, best hit for the SNES. But, unfortunately, the all to quick decay of time has long since taken its toll on that... Read more
