The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Storyline: You start off asleep in bed when you receive a strange telepathic message from someone who says they have been captured by an evil wizard and to come rescue them, you wake up your uncle is holding the family sword and shield he tells you to he has some business to do and for you to stay in bed and walks out the door.

Game play: In my experience this is one of the most annoying Zelda games I know due to the fact that it is extremely easy to die and magic using items chew up your magic meter really quickly and magic restoring containers are pretty scarce same with healing hearts, that’s the reason why I find it a bit annoying, on one dungeon I died about twelve times if you include the bottled fairies I had brought along with me(they bring you back to life when you die, but don’t restore any magic), this is because of two things: 1, I probably suck at the game and 2, one slip can pretty much kill you if not severely damage you and stuff you up. Having said that the story line is actually not that bad, and the game slowly gets more fun, particularly after you  pass the first three dungeons and claim the master sword, which can shoot sword beams at full health, which makes things a LOT less difficult, until you get injured.

Opinion: My opinion on this game is: the game is actually quite fun after you get used to the controls and get more items(my favorite is the fire rod) despite some of the draw backs(which I mentioned earlier), even though this is quite an old game it is still fun, hence it is safe to say(I hope it is anyway) that 1: old games are still good games and 2: the best graphics is not really necessary, (there are a lot of good games out there with graphics that most people would complain about, I don’t really give much for graphics, unless you can’t see what you are doing which is very rare)

Rating:

Graphics: 3/10

Game play: 5/10

Storyline: 7/10

(Cheaters might want to read this, there are actually cheat codes for this game such as infinite health and magic as the consoles pause allows you to add cheats in the add cheat section, what are the codes? Go find them yourself! Though please note that the magic cheat can stuff up and to fix this walk into one of the magic draining enemies and bingo fixed.)
