GodisaGeek: "A superb sequel to one of gaming’s greatest masterpieces, A Link Between Worlds is one of the best portable entries in the series. It may be heavily inspired by the past, but the way that some of the classic conventions have been changed would indicate that seeds are being sown that could potentially change how future entries play.
It rewards those of us who know A Link to the Past’s version of Hyrule like the back of our hand, but makes enough concessions for those who didn’t play the original the first time around. It may be a shorter and less challenging adventure than many would expect for a modern Zelda game, but when that journey is so incredibly satisfying, you won’t feel short changed. I can’t think of a better way to end a brilliant year for the Nintendo 3DS than by playing one of the best games released on the system so far."
