I got to admit not one of my favorite Zelda games. I agree with the overall score!

i dont agree with this. I loved The Adventure of Link VERY much. It took me awhile to warm up to it because I was expecting maximum epic top down gameplay that was The Legend of Zelda. (Link to the past took care of this expectation)

the games pros to me are.....

seemingly updated graphics?
new style of play, more movement and control of Link

more NPCs and more dialog, MY NAME IS ERROR aside hahaha!

more enemies along with some old favorites

exploration, dungeons, multiple towns, side quests hidden items

SPELLS!

RPG-like elements

CONS... needed more dungeons, more towns, more enemies, few more abilities or sword techniques wouldnt have hurt.

more variation in the music (sick of the overworld music after beating the first 2 dungeons)

lame last boss, not enough Darknuts: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki...

My score for this game would fall in line with an 8.9

offtopic: Octorock vs Ultros... who will emerge victorious??
