Another classic in the books. It was my first time but I finally put to rest Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. According to everyone, this is considered the best Legend of Zelda game of all time. Well, I might have to agree. I did enjoy myself playing through this game. The grahpics were nice, and the game play was great. There was a ton a new items to get and the story was quite epic. I starting to think this is the best SNES game on this system.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is not either a sequel nor a prequel to the previous NES games. This is pretty much a whole different story, setting, and world. Link doesn't know who Zelda is and Zelda doesn't know who Link is. The story explains it self in the start of the game where Gannon was trying to take the power of the Triforce but the so called wise men sealed Gannon away to another alter world called Dark World. Meanwhile, an evil wizard Agahnim, was on the verge of breaking the seal to release Gannon. While doing this, he has sent the seven wise men into Dark World and was after Princess Zelda next. This is when Zelda communicates to Link while Link is at home asleep. And so, his adventure begins.
The whole purpose of the game is to rescue Zelda and the seven wise men who have been sent to the Dark World. Before doing so you must get the Master Sword and rescue Zelda first. Once this is done, the evil wizard Agahnim sends you on your way to the Dark World to get rid of you. In Dark World you must conquer 7-8 dungeons. Each dungeon contains a boss and one of the seven wise men. Each time you beat these dungeons, you also grab an important item to help you along your way. One you have completed all your tasks, and brabbed all your items now it's time to face Agahnim and Gannon. The seven wise men break the seal around Gannon castle and so begins your final quest. Once you defeat Agahnim and defeat Gannon, the Dark World is no more and Link returns back to Hyrule and everything is all back to normal.
Wow! What a game. If I were to decide which SNES game is the best so far between, Super Castlevania IV, Super Metroid, or Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, well, I have to give the nod to Link to the Past for now. And so ends another Zelda game in my Zelda game collection. My next game is on GameBoy. The next adventure is Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
