Summary

Two worlds collide in an all-new adventure set in the world of Super NES™ classic The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™. In this newly spun tale, Link™ transforms into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel dimension mirroring Hyrule. Conquer the puzzles, traps, and hidden rooms of deadly dungeons to save both worlds from certain doom! Brought to life in 3D, this beloved, top-down world is the perfect backdrop for a sweeping new tale. Dungeons sink deep below the screen as Link and his attacks pop out, highlighting the nonstop action. The pace is faster than ever, especially since you can swap items on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen.

A Link Between Worlds is a delightful return to the classic game we loved. There aren’t a lot of improvements, but the additional world and new power are more than enough. While the story might not have a great premise, the ending is satisfying and something fans will really enjoy. Needless to say, this is a Zelda game that fans and newcomers alike can enjoy and makes the perfect title to pick up and play or conquer while on vacation.

Sure, you’re going to recognize some of the dungeons and puzzles, but considering Link’s newest ability is to paint himself onto a wall and traverse dungeons in completely different ways, you can expect to be stumped on more than a few occasions as the game goes on. Having said that, most of the dungeons, even if they seem familiar, are almost completely new in content. If you enjoyed A Link to the Past and you’ve been looking for the next great Zelda title, make no mistake: this is it.

A Link Between Worlds is at once accessible and incredibly deep. It displays a stunning fearlessness. Tweaking and completely redefining the basic concepts of the series might have been risk enough. But Nintendo has been shockingly cavalier with one of the most beloved games ever. The result is the sequel I never knew I wanted - and one of my favorite games of 2013.
