Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

When Zelda II first came out, most people werenít quite sure what to make of it, since on the surface of things it was completely different from the original Zelda. I wasnít either, having plucked it and Final Fantasy from a bargain bin sometime around í94, but it wasnít entirely alien to me since I had played other RPGs by that point.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

When I first played it, I wasn't to thrilled. I think I wanted more of what I had seen in the first game.

It eventually grew on me though. Lots of memories of trying to find good places to level up Link.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Never really liked this one. I always liked the ones like Legend of Zelda, Link's Awakening, and LTTP.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

It's an alright game, this game is harder to me than Castlevania III. With Castlevania III, I could actually improve as I played through and got used to each trick, but I never really figured out how to get any better in Zelda II after I had collected all the possible meter extensions and got to the point where level ups became ridiculous, and was simply stumped on the Three Eyed Rock palace.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

I always liked this Zelda. Although it is challenging, it isn't that brutal. Even to this day I still have fond memories of playing this. I found that the RPG elements made this game stand out as unique for its time. It's too bad that this one didn't do so well.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Never got into this one all that much. Maybe I had come to expect too much after the first one.

Re: Looking Back: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

If you were looking for more of the same this game definitely didn't deliver. I think it is a good game on it's own, but seems out of place in the Zelda series. (Unless you include those abortions on the CDI. Well the third game from that wasn't as bad.)

I'm more in line with this line of thinking as well. I know it's blasphemy, but I get very bored with Legend of Zelda 1. It was groundbreaking, but boring in my opinion. It looks too similar and the combat is too repetitive.

I wasn't really into the series until Zelda II: AOL. This completely changed my view, and turned me into a huge fan of all things Zelda. I liked the town aspect as well as the 2D combat system. It was challenging and fun to me. I have the CD-I ones too, and while not great, I have fun with them.

This is the only Zelda game that is considered a rite to manhood... Am I trolling? I don't feel I am.
