This game feels a lot like a prettified Oracles games. Reasonably enough, Capcom was behind this game, as it was behind the Oracles games. It’s a great game that also looks good. If you liked Skyward Sword, you might be interested to learn that it shares many similarities with this game, in part being a prequel to this game.
The controls are good. With the addition of the shoulder buttons, Link can now perform certain action with the R Button. Unique to this game, Link can now “aim and strafe” when using the bow or shield. Many familiar items return, although there are at least two new items in this game.
While there are some new musical pieces, just about every song and sound effect was lifted from a previous game in the series. By this game, a lot of Zelda’s identity had already been established, although it would have been nice to hear different sounds.
The graphics are very nice, although Link and some monsters are generally the same as they were in Four Swords. Unlike in Four Swords Adventures, this game has new sprite work for its environments. There will be nothing here that will impress you, but it will still manage to make you feel good inside.
The story is very simple. Bad guy has kidnapped Zelda, you have to go kick his butt. It’s plenty worn out by now, but this game doesn’t really care too much. It still manages to be very fun to play. It’s very linear, though, although there is at least the Kinstones to distract you from saving the world.
I recommend this game to fans of the earlier Gameboy games and fans of LttP. It will also appeal to fans of adventure games. If you like collecting things and 100% completion missions, the game’s Kinstones should satisfy that urge, although be warned that some are missable. All in all, it’s a very good game.
