Amazing! This GameBoy version of Zelda is almost as good as the Super NES version! What Nintendo didn't do was simply make the exact game for the portable system: instead they made a completely different game altogether! Some of the new options, like your ball-and-chain buddy, are great!
Can Nintendo do no wrong? This game is thankfully not a complete translation of the Super NES version. A totally different story with incredible graphics and beautiful sound are the real high points. The only drawback is that this game could have been perfect as a sequel to the Super NES version! A great job!
I'm not afraid to give a deserving GB cart a 9. Zelda is a masterpiece and by far one of the most involving and fun games to play on the go. Tons of mysteries and game play that just won't quit are part of the fun. New characters and Mario-type action are also present for a whole new feel to role playing. Battery back up too!
This is probably the best GameBoy translation so far. It has all the features and functions of the NES version of Zelda and then goes beyond to add some new stuff. This is definitely a game to have for those long rides and boring classes. The story and characters are well crafted and the graphics are great for the system.
