SPOILER: It's Zelda's Lullaby, a piece of music that's been in the Zelda series of games since Link to the Past on the SNES in 1991.

Zelda looks so blocky now. I can see the stubble on of batman's face with a ps3. I think Nintendo needs to step up the game.

If you really care about that shiat, why do you even bother playing video games.

Just watch a movie.

The original Legend of Zelda is STILL better than and Batman game to date. Including Arkahm Asylum. Superior gameplay will always trump excellent graphics

From me and the rest of the people that haven't given a shiat about Zelda games for 20 years, thank you. I was expecting "So Link loses the Princess and Ganon packs up his shiat and leaves?"

The only thing I noticed on the reverse play through was the Wii control symbols at the bottom. Because stupid balancing minigames are what really sells action/adventure games.

Haven't played Zelda since LTTP. When did Link start making effeminate Ahnuld noises?

Can someone explain how that was awesome and not just some video game shown in reverse?

Typical, hey all of our cartoon-y games do historically worse than our games which go for more grit and realism. Lets be lazy asses and make more games with cell-shaders. Zelda, a new type of shovel-ware, now with less artistic production value than a Link to the Past.

And you gotta love how they tell people there's some coherent story line going on between all the games, it's worse off than Lost, what a mess of BS.

Game-play formula still rocks, and I guess that's what matters. . . to a point. I mean, really, without story, you could just go back and replay twilight, Zelda ocarina of time, or even A link to the past or last but not least The Legend of Zelda, and accomplish the same exact damn thing.

Used to love this franchise, it's gone stale for me.

Make that five. Never owned an NES or SNES, so I never got into Zelda.

I never played Link to the Past but I will not turn in my gamer card since I'm one of the few that actually beat Zelda II when it first came out. BEST ZELDA EVER.

Link to the past can not be bested.

Ocarina of time is the most overrated game there is. I actually think it sucks balls. It ruined the franchise for me.

Controls: suck
Camera: REALLY SUCKS
Tutorial Companion: Wanted to kill it

The Zelda games (with the exception of the 2d handhelds) made now are NOT Zelda games. They could be bundled in with any other 3rd person game play. Early Zelda was special/different.

/also, I recognized the tune... now I feel nerdy

Zelda two is NOT a Zelda game. That being said... its fun as fark and super hard (could never get that jump-slash timing down).

Love that game.

Honestly, I viewed Zelda kinda the opposite of how everyone else did. I played the original and wasn't really into it. I played the second one and got the "Holy shiat this is so different it is awesome!" feeling. Loved it beat it. It is still on my beat once a year list, too. Then I saw the preview for Link to the Past and and thought "Oh, they went back to original style. I guess I'll just move on." Different tastes I guess.

Fun fact: the Zelda games on the Wii are backwards.


No, really. In every Zelda game from Gamecube version of Twilight Princess all the way back to the very first one, Link was a lefty - because the creator of the series, Shigeru Miyamoto, was himself a lefty. But since the Wii version of TP (which was a port of the Gamecube version) used a motion-control setup, and since something like 90% of the population is right-handed, they flipped the game from left to right for the Wii version.

I never understood how people can say it's not a Zelda game. It was developed and published by they exact same people. The creators made it that way. It introduced the third triforce. The palaces are mazes. You have to find stuff to advance. Items. Spells. The gameplay is different. That is what made it awesome. It was made the way it was on purpose. Isn't it also the only real sequel with a number? IT IS A REAL HONEST TO GOODNESS ZELDA GAME. DEAL WITH IT.

HAHA ...that's like saying "The New Monkees" are the same as the "The Monkees". Wrong.

If you are taking about licensing, yes. If you are talking about game play, no.

Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion, very very different games. Changing game play that much is a bridge too far.

Also, 3D has ruined many aspects of old franchise games that made them good in the first place.

Robo Beat: they flipped the game from left to right for the Wii version.


Yep, mirror-imaged the entire world because they thought US gamers were pussies who couldn't handle the concept of using their right hand to make the character perform an action with his left.

Based on the whining I remember seeing on the GameFAQs boards, they were right. Stupid pussies.

It's neat that they made it Zelda's Lullaby when played backwards, but when it's played forwards the song is actually pretty awful and amelodic.

So Ocarina of Time is not a real Zelda game because it is so different from A Link to the Past? You are trying to look at Zelda II from today's perspective. It seems odd now but back then it was the sequel to The Legend of Zelda, that's why it was called The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. If they had continued with the gameplay developed in Zelda II, the the original would have been out of place. My point is this; Zelda II is every bit as much a Zelda game as The Wind Waker is. Tons of people hated the graphics but it was still made my Nintendo. It was still Shigeru Miyamoto's vision for the game. It's the same thing with Zelda II. Whether you like it or not, it is a Zelda game. Now if you want to talk about shiatty licensed games, go to the CD-I versions.

That was awesome. If you were a 5 year old kid with ADHD.
 
2011-05-04 10:07:59 AM  
I've always thought Zelda II was under-rated. My only gripe is that the top-world graphics weren't that great looking and no second quest (which really should be a concept reintroduced to the series!)
