Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:

Pros

  • More A Link to the Past style Zelda. Nothing wrong with that!
  • Some neat ideas and enemy designs, especially with the inclusion of the jumping item.
  • The new dungeon mechanics are a fresh and welcome change.
  • A fun loving story and adventure.

Cons

  • The weird imbalance of simple and cryptic.
  • The use of other Nintendo characters… I don’t want to see Octaroks in a Mario game either.

Final Score: 9/10

Link’s Awakening is a great accomplishment and one of the best games on the Game Boy. If you like 2D LoZs, you need to play this one. You won’t be disappointed.
