  • Excellent usage of time
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chaz - November 2, 2019

    Very good game, old school 2D world in 3D over head view just like the original but so much better. With having to use guides online, the puzzle factor/mission factor is above moderate. It will take some time to figure it out, depending on your mystery crackin skilz! Good story line, some cross over eye candy for those of us that love Mario and the like. And who doesn't love fishing? Glad this made a comeback! Although at the moment it has a lofty sticky price, but if you have a few dollars to burn, this is worth it.

  • This game is definitely up to expectations
    Verified BuyerReviewed by NoahA - September 25, 2019

    Links awakening reimagined on switch entirely brings back so much from the original GB game, and so much more. Definitely worth $60

  • A game between 26 years
    Verified BuyerReviewed by abb3102 - September 27, 2019

    From 1993 to 2019, a perfect game for two generations to play together. Nintendo has made this LINK between my childhood and yours.

  • Delivers on Nostalgia
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Axelfonze - November 1, 2019

    If you were a fan of the original Gameboy version, then you won't be disappointed here. It's basically a screen-by-screen remake (except the switch version doesn't constrict your movement to individual screens on the overworld the way the original did), with an updated graphical presentation and newly orchestrated soundtrack. I have many fond memories of playing this game as a kid, and it's fun to be able to revisit an updated version of this adventure. It's a bit shallow compared to modern games, but still lots of fun. I wish there was a bit more play time for the price, but I'd say that the slick presentation and baked in nostalgia were worth it.

  • Excellent Remake with the Spirit of the Original
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ilifeguy - January 18, 2020

    This remake is phenomenal. It captures the essence of the original game but adds a new artistic flair that looks beautiful on the Switch. The addition of being able to map two items for use while keeping sword and shield as their own dedicated buttons keeps combat smooth and less time in menus. This has been a perfect introduction to Zelda for my kids, as Breath of the Wild is a bit beyond them. The puzzles and straightforward aspect of Link’s Awakening is great for short play, as each dungeon adds a new layer of complexity and freedom. Highly recommend the game, and love the hardcore mode if you are already familiar with the game.
