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).
