    Don't get me wrong I love the Zelda series, the're all some of my favorite games of all time. The thing that gets me about this game is the controls, to me the're awful they just don't seem right.

    The graphics suck. Seriously. Yeah, the gameplay is great but sound and graphics are very outdated and do not reason a rating above 75 anymore.

    First of all, this is not a horrible game. In fact, as rpgs go, this is probably the best, but I just started losing interest in the game after about 2/3s of the way through . This game tries to cram too much stuff in , which isn't a bad thing, but some of the stuff is just pure and utter crap. For instance, in Ocarina of Time, the scarecrows near the lake. How are you supposed to First of all, this is not a horrible game. In fact, as rpgs go, this is probably the best, but I just started losing interest in the game after about 2/3s of the way through . This game tries to cram too much stuff in , which isn't a bad thing, but some of the stuff is just pure and utter crap. For instance, in Ocarina of Time, the scarecrows near the lake. How are you supposed to know that you have to make up a song and that the song would help you get skulata(not spelled right) coins?!? Some of the glitches are also downright annoying, like how enemies reappear right after you leave the room and come back. Also, the games are N64 games (originally) and I'm sure some people know, a lot of N64 games are frustratingly impossible. I did manage to beat all the games except Majora, but it was hard, because I didn't really have anything new to look forward to. Majora's mask in my opinion is the worst, the time limit just makes you want to burn the GC (or N64) and everything that looks like it. You can't explore or try new things, you're just on a flat 72 hour limit. I'm not saying the game is too hard, but a lot of stuff is unnecessary, like some dungeons in Oot which require you to go and do something that makes absolutely no sense. Majora's mask's story was crap, my fish could write better. All in all, if you are a huge fan of zelda and rpgs, get this, if not, just try it out first. Expand

    Face it, if you don't like this collection you just aren't a Zelda fan. This is one of the best ports I've ever played, feeling just as fluid as they did at first. This allowed me to play three Zelda games I couldn't have experienced otherwise, including my all time favorite, with the same music, nostalgic graphics, and adventure of any Zelda game. I'd rather ignore the Wind Waker demo andFace it, if you don't like this collection you just aren't a Zelda fan.

This allowed me to play three Zelda games I couldn't have experienced otherwise, including my all time favorite, with the same music, nostalgic graphics, and adventure of any Zelda game. I'd rather ignore the Wind Waker demo and the other extras and just play the four games we've been offered: The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask. If you're a Zelda fan and haven't experienced these games(or only experienced their poorly ported controls on Virtual Console) then I give this my highest recommendations. Collapse

    If games were Norse gods, this would be Odin. Get it now. Thank me later.
  2. This is the greatest collection of games, ever, bar none.

    A great introduction to one of the most successful and innovative game franchises of all time. [Jan 2004, p.159]
