The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - If you've been clamoring for a brand-new Zelda adventure that fits in your
pocket, you can stop making a fuss now. Link's newest portable appearance, The
Minish Cap, is here, and it executes the classic overhead Zelda formula with
great precision and delightful whimsy. The basic gameplay is fundamentally
identical to that of past games in the series, but the Zelda model is so
entertaining, you can hardly call that a negative. The game is a little on the
short side if you just plow through the main dungeon progression, but there's a
vast array of optional side quests to undertake, and Nintendo and Capcom have
also done a great job of coming up with new items and abilities for Link that
fit right in with the standard Zelda structure.
Zelda: Link to the Past
was one of the greatest games to be released for Nintendo's 16-bit SNES. The
game brought the classic NES series up to the standards of the day, adding
plenty of new gameplay elements while still maintaining the same basic feel of
the original action adventure game. In keeping with the recent trend of bringing
such classics to the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo has released a port of the game
for its handheld system, bringing a fantastic version of A Link to the Past both
to new players and those interested in playing through it one more time.
Additionally, a new multiplayer game, called The Four Swords, has been added for
link-game players. Four Swords puts an equal emphasis on cooperation and competition. You'll find a
lot of blocks and boulders that require all players to help with the pushing and
lifting, but you'll also be able to pick up one of the other Links and throw him
out of your way, if you're so inclined. The game has a handful of boss fights in
it as well, and those also benefit from a cooperative spirit. The dungeons scale
depending on the number of players, so the game is equally playable by two or
four players. Each player is required to have his or her own copy of the
cartridge, though. As you progress in A Link to the Past, you'll unlock
additional features in The Four Swords--one such upgrade gives you the master
sword's firepower in the multiplayer game. If you're surrounded by GBA owners,
then The Four Swords is a fantastic addition to an already spectacular package.
