The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
Reviewed by Banjo
This review is for the Game Boy Color version of the classic 4th Zelda game.
The only things that being the DX version I reviewed will affect is the graphics
(can you guess why?) and the challenge, a little. (Because some extra text was
added, which sometimes practically explains to you how to beat a boss) This
game basically rocks, and when I played it one Super Game Boy, my sister
actually thought I was playing a new hidden part on A Link To The Past. (Which
makes two points: A) My sister isn't the brightest person ever to walk the
face of this earth, and b) The gameplay equals and/or rivals most Super NES games.
Graphics 10 out of 10
Awesome!! Remember that I reviewed the DX version. The graphics rock!!
They are exactly the same as the SNES version. They flow nicely, and the
simplicity of them doesn't make them any worse.
Music and Sound 9 out of 10
Not perfect, but close. Every game I review will get a decent score in
everything, because I won't review a game unless it's worth spending my
time on. But, still, Zelda earned this score. The sound effects and music
are cool, and when you play the Ballad Of The Wind Fish for the Wind Fish's
Egg with all the instruments, it plays it again and sounds awesome!!
Game Challenge 10 out of 10
The second RPG I ever played, (Zelda 64 was the first. Stop laughing now.)
it is pretty challenging later on. I haven't beat the Face Shrine yet, but I
did the Level 2 Power Bracelet from it. Pretty challenging over all, this game
may take a while for the less experienced(i.e., me) to complete.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
The main fun is hunting down every last seashell and heart container, and
the bosses are very fun to play against. Not much to say here.
Can get very frustrating if you can't find that last key, or need the compass
to help you in hunting down treasure chests, but can't find it. Not overly
frustrating, so don't worry.
Replayability 8 out of 10
Once I beat it, I doubt I'll have much fun replaying it. (except to write my
walkthrough for it) Not much more to say.
Game Value $90 out of $30
Worth more than the price. I like hunting down every last picture. (DX version
only) I also like trying to get all the seashells.
Overall 10 out of 10
Well, this game is fun. I love it. I don't know about you, but I think it's cool.
I'm getting annoying, huh? Too bad. Buy this game right now, or I'll strangle
you. (Not really, I just wanted to scare you into buying it, so you don't miss
out on it. DARN!! I just blew my cover!)
