I’m a fan of The Legend of Zelda, this is no secret. One of my first N64 games was Ocarina of time, I ended up owning the game several times through out my childhood. Even though I never got past the Water Temple until I beat the 3DS remake, the point is that all of my Zelda experience is post OoT. The reason I bring this up is because, A Link Between Worlds is the sequel to A Link to the past. A game that has heralded by many a people, to be the best game of all time. It’s also a Zelda game I never played, after playing a Link between worlds; I intend to rectify that. Surprise, surprise, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between worlds is a fantastic game. If you’re a fan of Zelda, I don’t know why you’re reading this review. If you’re wondering about it, just go buy it. Trust me, and every other critic, it’s good.
As much as I love the 3D Zelda games, the half an hour or so of exposition that most of them put you through kinda kills the desire to replay them for me; Unless I have a good amount of time to kill that is. I’m going to abbreviate here, but ALBW doesn’t have this problem. The crux of the story is explained faster then it takes 4Chan, to post something questionable.
You could say that, thanks to this the plot has lost all depth. Well the plot isn’t deep or complicated; this is true. You still have endearing characters, and If you boil it down to plot points; it’s just as formulaic as every other Zelda game anyway.
