Action (Action/Adventure)


The evil wizard, Agahnim, is kidnapping young women who are the descendants of the great sages who once sealed away a great evil in the Golden Land. One dark and stormy night, Link and his uncle receive a telepathic message from princess Zelda saying that she is Agahnim's next target. They set off into the night to rescue her... but Link's uncle falls in combat leaving the young hero alone to take up the sword and shield to protect the princess and defeat the madman behind it all. However, not all is as it seems and Link soon finds himself drawn into an ages-old battle against an enemy with the unlimited power of Gold... Triforce.

The Very Best of Zelda

I have to admit being a little torn about my true feelings about this game. While Ocarina of Time remains my favorite game of all time... *whew*... this game. This game is something special.
