Difficult but fun

Reviewed By: Bond697 on 04 Sep 2009

While definitely not an easy game by any stretch of the imagination, and at times frustrating, Parallel Worlds is a fun game to play. The dungeons are huge and intimidating, the bosses are tough, and the items and heart pieces are well hidden. While most people were vehemently against the lack of a sword for so long at the outset, I thought it was kind of a cool change from the norm for Link to have to fend for himself and really work for the sword and shield. That said, though, the game did have quite an annoying bug or two. The worst of those being the requirement to climb the Parallel Tower a third time. Per Euclid, having to climb the tower one last time to eventually get the 4th level sword is a glitch with the shutter door. With a little more bug testing and another revision or two, Parallel Worlds could be one of the best.
