The Legend of Zelda
A unique top-down action-RPG. You control our little hero Link
in his adventure to save Princess Zelda. Along the way, you collect
dozens of power-ups that can help you defeat tougher enemies
and get into previously inaccessible areas.
Zelda simply a lot of fun to play
- and it´s one of the grandest adventures on the NES. The
game is designed so well, all of us at EGM would still gladlyplay
it today. Every area of the map is so well thought out, requiring
you to use a little noggin-power in your quest. And each time
you pick up a shiny new weapon, the game forces you to use it
You find the pieces of the Triforce, you kill Ganon, you rescue
Zelda. As you bask in your hard-earned victory, you slowly realize
that the game designers are going to award you with a whole new
second quest in the same catridge!

The Legend of Zelda is the first cartridge in gaming history
to have a battery backup to save your games.
Zelda II The Adventures of Link
The sequel to the most popular action-RPG of all time, Zelda
II brings side-scrolling gameplay and some traditional RPG elements
(experience building and magic spells) into the fray.
It continues the story from the
original Zelda brilliantly, with a much larger quest and world
and a different style of play that is still a joy to experience.
One thing we´ve learned about Zelda II is that most people
either love it or hate it. As you may guess, we hold it in high
regard but still feel that the other games in the series are
better on the whole. Still an all-time great though.

Did you know:
Some gamers who couldn´t wait for Zelda II because of Nintendo
alleged "chip shortages" imported their copies from
Canada. That´s dedication!
The Legend of Zelda: Link´s Awakening
Nintendo, 1994 - 1998
The portable version of NIntendo´s immensely popular action-RPG
Even for a Game Boy title, Link´s
Awakening is incredible, beating out the Super NES Zelda in both
size and scope. Link´s Awakening is simply awesome. It
mixes the best elements of play from Zelda I and Super NES Zelda
and adds a bit of humor to the dialogue, never taking itself
too seriously. It´s also quite challenging and won´t
be eaten easily by even the best gamers.
Being able to take Zelda anywhere is cool enough, is it not?
Please take all four 8- and 16-Bit Zelda games and stick them
on a Super Mario All-Stars-style compilation cart for the N64.
Please, please, please, please, please, please, please!!!
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
A sequel to the 8-Bit action-RPG series, with better graphics,
new tools and weapons, and more worlds to explore.
Link to the Past takes everything that made the original Zelda
such a classic and supercharges the entire package. The graphics
are improved tenfold over the original, and the levels - especially
outdoors - are huge (remember the forest maze?). The environments
are also much more interactive than in previous Zeldas (remember
lighting the torches in the dungeons with your lantern?). Past
three of the Zelda series is clearly the best action-RPG ever
Remeber seeing the rain for the first time? Remember thinking
how awesome your Super Nintendo is when you saw that rain?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The first 3-D Zelda game, most succesful , and probably the best
ACTION-RPG game made so far. It should be placed in the beginning
of the Zelda series timeline, and it's the first time that we
have two versions of the main characters in the same game.
It takes the elements of the previous
Zelda games plus new ones and turns them into an amazing 3-D
virtual world. The game is so well done that leaves very little
to the imagination, thats why it has been criticized by some
zelda 3 fans.
Difficult to say. the whole game is so damn great!
