5.0 out of 5 stars ****BETTER THAN BREATH OF THE WILD****
By RADIKAL69 on 20 September 2019
Basically I missed out on the first Zelda game so happily when I saw this, was a perfect opportunity to experience this on my Switch - Having had Breath of The Wild, which is ok, fine, bit empty out in the world if I’m honest. This feels more like a proper Zelda on par with Ocarina of Time which is my favourite Zelda! Playing Zelda on the NES and SNES classics has been a fabulous homage and love letter to my child hood playing these with my best friend and brother. I can confidently say having experienced Links Awakening today, this is now my favourite Zelda and in fact straight to the top of my library of Switch titles! Truly spellbinding and magical, a game that can make you “feel” and “smell” all of those childhood fond memories even down to the music or simply opening a chest or dungeon door! Exceptional and in my opinion “a masterpiece” sorry BOTW but this is proper classic Zelda at its best! Five stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

4.0 out of 5 stars First impressions - not bad, don't expect BOTW mind blowing game play
By Mr. T. M. Elner on 20 September 2019
This review is after a few hours of play, I'll update as I get more time with it. (UPDATE at the bottom of this review).

I'm 36 - I never played the original or any of the other Zelda games apart from BoTW which of course I love (best game I have ever played). So far it has been easy to put back down, its the sort of game I would have expected to be able to get on the Switch. Graphics are nice and bright and generally just good to look at.

The price seems high when you compare to what you get with BoTW, but pretty standard for games these days it seems.

My 8 year old boy seems to love the game and has found it immediately easy to play. He plays BoTW also but that took him a long time to master. I would therefore recommend this games for either the younger player or die hard Zelda fans. Otherwise you might not get as much from it.

UPDATE: I've played this a few times and helped out my son when he gets stuck. Its very linear and formulaic (i.e. there's a specific order in which you can do things before progressing), so no open world here. For me its easy to put down and I can't see myself bothering to play it until completion. For comparison, I played BoTW to completion and then did loads of extras and became a bit of a completionist.
I stick with my earlier recommendation that kids will enjoy it or Zelda fans who care about the history and folklore. For me its just not special enough to get my time.
