      I just picked up a switch! I need some help? Should I buy breath of the wild or link's awakening, as my first zelda game in a very long time! Last time I played was on the game cube! Thank you for your help!

      Never played Zelda before but have always loved Link. Not a fan of RPG's but I like the design of this game. Link looks like he's 9 years old here. Looks like I'd need a strategy guide book to play this one.

        i said i wouldn't buy it. because I've played it since the dx version on gameboy color. for a game that short, it's not worth paying that much. but I've seen it in a store and I'm undecided. lol!

          I think the price is too high for how quick it is to finish.

                  I remember playing the original one back in the day back when I was a kid and it was my first game, and I'm planning on buying this for my daughter for Christmas as her first game with a switch lite

                    I bought the switch lite and I love it it is so good. Feels like a gameboy 10.0

                  I bought it and it's pretty much the the same game just with better graphics and better controls, all it is to me is an better version of the game I loved it.

                      For the main story no, but to share self-made dungeons and play other people's created dungeons yes

                    I think the game is actually worth it. It was done so well. Matter fact I did a video on it. If you can I would appreciate if you’d all check it out. Have a blessed day.

                      im really interested, but I think the $60 price tag is a bit too high. Also I don't really like the 8 directional movement. Just feels so weird and sudden seeing it in such a stylized and pretty looking game, especially since Link Between Worlds didn't have directional movement. Also apparently you move with the joystick only and can't use the d-pad, which makes the 8 directional movement even more awkward. I'll probably pick it up once the price drops, but for now I don't think id get it.

                        How odd. Link's Awakening was my first Zelda game too. And I fucking hated it. Absolute shit ending that isn't very satisfying to me.

                          @Karlyle Cummings then you're going to REALLY hate this version because the ending to this one won't be too different from the original.

                              I am just waiting for my son to get a bit older and I am buying a switch for this game and breath of the wild. P.S mum never bought me a game boy because I played my NES WAY too much so This is a new fresh game for me

                                Actually don't mind these recreations. Would be nice to see a few more classics brought back to life like this.

                                    My favorite one is Hyrule warriors because that's the only one I could play through without looking up a walk through on YouTube at some point I tried to play the minischcap and after the 7th time I got sick and tired of getting stuck and looking up walk throughs so I gave up.

                                        This game is great, but I still think A Link Between Worlds is better.

                                            It’s so worth it once you get certain powers you need to go back to older spots to get stuff I’m probably like 2/3 and I’ve been playing quite a bit and price who cares one you beat it sell it for like 40 btw has normal and hard mode

                                                    I bought this game for the hype and finished it a few days ago just for the sake of it, but for the most part I did not enjoyed it and it was frustrating as hell.

                                                    I hated the dungeons and the puzzles especially, I am just too lazy and dumb for this and don't have the patience at all. Had to look up guides in order to proceed with the last two dungeons because I just couldn't take it anymore and wanted to be over with it asap. Story is weak, combat is the most simple I ever saw in any game and the bosses are super easily cheesed. The whole map outside the dungeons is just a big maze and you are running back and forth visiting places where you already been 1000x times before, while figuring out where to go next.

                                                    No I didn't played the original game 26 years ago. No I do not have a nostalgic Zelda feeling and yes I played 5 Zelda games in total in hopes I will like it. I liked only Breath of the Wild. Hated Ocarina of Time, Link Between Worlds , Majora's mask and didn't like this one either. And it is all because of the puzzles and dungeons. The games are otherwise lovely. I do not see satisfaction in figuring out stuff that's why I hate puzzle games and if this is the main focus of the Zelda series then no thanks. Took me a while to understand....

                                                          They need to remake the original zelda this way

                                                            I beat the original years ago. My dad surprised me by buying the remake for me. I beat it in less than 3 days and completed, as far as I can tell, all of the sidequests. It was fun, definitely better than the original in terms of frequency of changing which items are equipped. Not sure that I ever would have payed $60 for it though.

                                                            Now, I would pay more than $60 for the new Animal Crossing game. First though, I want to get a Switch so I won't have to keep borrowing my brother's.

I literally 100% this game in 18 hours and i have never played this game and my first playthrough. for link between worlds a 3ds game it was 40 hours to give an example of one that was 40 bucks and longer and it ran smoother too. this game cant hold its frame rate and its noticable and i hope they fix that.

                                                                                      My issue with the game (never played and have no nostalgia for original) is it still feels like a gameboy game. No story, depth, or interesting combat. It's about as bare bones as you can get. They should have added more than great graphics to make it feel better. Not a $60 game at all.

                                                                                      • TheMarionick
