Zelda II is a classic action mazerunner that will bend your thumbs and break your spirit. Do not take up the sword lightly, for enemies are many and will swarm and plow right through you. Battle in Zelda 2 involves blocks, counter attacks, and using the landscape to your advantage.. oh, and offensive and defensive magic. It is in fact the most complex Zelda battle system up to and including Ocarina of Time. For this reason, and the mixed view perspectives it has always had its detractors, but you cannot fault the music, the graphics of the day, and the absolute whimsey of exploring Hyrule.

Written as an article back in 1999 for a site called Nintendoland. I issued the text in compressed form as a review for Amazon in 2004. This is the first time the uncut text has been released on Amazon/. An update since this article was written - I have since beaten [seen been] Zelda II numerous times including several 000 death runs.

The Failure of Link? - 12/19/1999:

Let's imagine ourselves back in the Golden Days of Video Games. The year was 1988. Nintendo had just released the sequel to one of the best selling games on their consol. The game, you ask? Zelda II: The Adventure of Link*.

The Legend of Zelda, one of the very first RPGs and a blueprint for which almost all games in this genre since its release has at least some roots in this game, was a phenomenal success, and stayed on the Nintendo Power Charts at Number 1 or 2 for literally years. Nintendo had, along with Mario, a cash cow it was not about to give up. Zelda II was to be a smashing success, or so they thought.

The game was released to the general public in December 1988, just in time for the Christmas market. It actually sold fairly well. But Nintendo heard no end to the furor caused by this game. The biggest controversy of this game was it was a 2D scroller, instead of an overhead game like the original was. You navigated in an overhead view. Then the battles and actual dungeons are in the side scrolling format. The public reaction to this game was NOT what Nintendo wanted. People didn't think it was as good as the original. Zelda II didn't stay on top of the charts like its prequel did.

I have always loved the Zelda series in games. To relive the first game was great. The graphics were nice to see again.

This game stinks. I have had it for 6 months, and I can't beat Horsehead (the first boss).
