    Anybody a fan of the Zelda series needs to play this game, simply to see how much they are missing out. Not just for a SNES game, but a game in general, it is packed with so much content and replay value, it is simply a game ahead of it's own time. I've recently played it and it really shows that Zelda had excellent games not only on the N64, but on the SNES too. Expand

    While I had played the NES games, this was the first Zelda game I ever owned. I remember playing this game as a child for hours. Sometimes I would just run around the world for no reason at all but to explore, knowing I have already completed it 100%. Exploring Hyrule to me, was like Exploring one of the vast lands of the Elder Scrolls games today. Expand

    One of greatest adventures I under took in my late childhood was playing The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past! Many claim that Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the best Zelda game, and while indeed it is excellent, the real masterpiece that Ocarina was built from is A Link to the Past. The gamed design, gameplay, art design, quest design, dungeon layout, themes, items, pacing, and story all were set out here that Ocarina and the later Zelda titles would follow. When I finished this game over a summer while young I felt as if I had finished a great quest, an epic journey. There have been few games that brought this level and feeling of satisfaction. But this game is not a masterpiece because I enjoyed it as a child, Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of the best crafted and designed action/adventure video games of all time with or without nostalgia.

    "A Link To The Past" is the best Zelda game at date, and that's saying much. Story, grafics, gameplay, difficulty... everything is honed to a perfection! Expand

    A masterpiece. This is the definitive 2D game in the series, and BY FAR the best 2D game, if not THE BEST Zelda!

    The sword is satisfying,
    the story is developed just right, the items are wisely used, the exploration is well dosed, and the challenge is perfectly fair.

    And dat music!

    Also, the atmosphere is just right!
    A well merited 10/10!

    Outstanding game for what it is. Still holds very well today on this Wii port. Tough I've have been angry sometimes with clueless objectives (like finding the flute) or being stuck without mana. It gets really hard later on. Expand
