Good but Difficult

Reviewed By: IlPalazzo on 29 May 2015

This has been fun. It really is for true old school gamers, as it requires knowledge and expertise from the first one. This is nowhere near as easy as any modern game, its frustratingly hard, and though you may be able to beat it without save state, it would require an actual SNES controller. The game is technically linear, but you will have to backtrack and go as far as you physically can as you do backtrack and zig zag a lot. The only con I wouls say is that I’d have prefered it to look like a sequel in that the re-spriting of some of the classic stuff I do miss. Like how link looks different, and that the faeries don’t actually look like faeries, how did you mess that one up? I liked em over these mosquitos. But yes a solid 8/10 for difficulty, 10/10 if you are easily distracted or don’t want to spend hours simply getting better.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
