Zelda II: The Adventure of Link NES Review - Zelda II: greatly underestimated

by Sarah on Sunday, March 3, 2002
I'm a 26-year-old gamer who followed the early days of the NES. My best friend had both Zelda and Adventure of Link. Like many people then, we were disappointed greatly by the sequel. I suppose we were expecting more of the same.

Well, guess what? My opinion of the game changed completely with the years. I now really like this game, although it isn't my fave Zelda game (my favorites in the series are the 2 Oracle games for the GBC). Granted, the experience point structure could be faster (the only thing I'd change if I were Nintendo and making a remake of it for, say, the GBA). But the gameplay is challenging and it's not the type of game that you can finish in one sitting.

So, give it a chance, and look at it not in comparison with the other Zelda games, but as is.
