And the Master sword sleeps again……Forever!

Game Title – The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past

Start Time – February 13, 2012

End Time – February 29, 2012

System Played on – Nintendo Wii Virtual Console

Total Play Time – 14 Hours (Estimate. Wii doesn’t let me total my play time. Boo.)

Another one bites the dust. I just finished this great game, although I am left wanting. The final dungeons were fun, but they seemed a little too easy. After making my fingers bleed on Zelda 2, this one seemed rather pedestrian.  I made it through the last dungeon without evening needing a walkthrough at all. In fact, the only time I used a walkthrough was to find  two missing heart containers. It turns out that I forgot them at the very start of the game. One of them was still in the village. I forgot to bomb something.

The Ganon fight was rather straightforward. I knew there were silver arrows required somewhere, and I assumed that when he was white that is when I should use them. It seems to me that the best way to beat a Zelda game is to have played previous Zelda games. All the clues are already there. As for the good, I will say that I did enjoy the music in this game. Especially the ending theme. It was heartwarming. I also noticed that Link resurrected his uncle at the end. I wonder if there is a future for zombie uncle.

I wonder if the Aquifina Ocarina of Time will let me use the same hints that I’ve learned from previous Zelda’s. We’ll see. Now to finish Link’s Awakening.

  1. i think you’ll find that Link’s Awakening and Oracle of Ages/Seasons are all just basically smaller versions of Link to the Past. I never did get into Ocarina of Time but I have the 3DS version now so I have no excuse to not play it =p
