Barely different from the NES version + Loading timesReviewed By: Bahamut ZERO on 24 Apr 2017
If you’re hellbent on playing Zelda 1 on FDS in English, this is the patch for you.
If you think this is going to be some ultra-definitive-hands-down version of the game… maybe dial down that hype-o-meter.
It’s 99.8% the exact same game, but with loading times. On a floppy disk. With barely better sound than the NES version.
And by barely, I mean outside of a chime sound effect or two and a couple tracks.
And by loading times, I mean like an almost minute-long wait at start up rather than damn near instant loading on NES. This is a drawback of the FDS version.
Translation-wise: pretty much on par with the original, but with some things shortened or changed entirely because of space constraints. Some times it’s better, some times it’s about as cryptic as the NES version.
If you’re truly dying to play this one specific version of this one specific Zelda title, then go hog wild. Otherwise, just play the NES version. No amount of extra, microscopic bells and whistles that the FDS version has makes it any better in any significant way.
Version 1.1 Recommended - No
