a fantastic and charming remake of an already great Zelda game. the art style I thought was offputting at first, but it really works for this game. the music is beautifully redone - “ballad of the wind fish” brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it. the dungeons and skill progression are on a level typical of a Zelda game, which is to say, it’s excellent. the only thing keeping it from a 5/5 is some of the esoteric solutions to certain overworld puzzles that have plagued so many older Zelda games. sometimes you need to give a specific item to a specific NPC and few clues to help you put two and two together. but other than that, it’s a modern classic for Nintendo!


Love the shiny diorama visuals. Otherwise, it's Link's Awakening. A very good game 5 stars.


An excessively cute and charming game with classic gameplay and a faithful reimagining of the original. Overall it does get a little boring due to a lack of gameplay mechanics and very small areas but it's totally worth picking up to play and is amazing compared to the AVERAGE game of course


Very cute game. Playing this after BOTW was a bit jarring so I never finished it. The new dungeon editor is fun though.


A perfect reimagining of a classic - but it has some running issues


Cute game play, good story, great puzzles. Love.
