The Minish Cap Is Still The Best Looking 2D Zelda

Capcom's bite-sized Zelda highlights the beauty of sticks, leaves, acorns, and raindrops.

Dave writes, "The smaller, tighter, and more child-like experience was a joy to play for the first time. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap has quickly shot up my list of favourite games in the Zelda franchise."

Glad you enjoyed! Loved this game, and always felt it wasn't appreciated/talked about enough. Capcom did an admirable job handling the Zelda franchise w due respect. Loved the shrinking mechanic. :)

Minish Cap and Oracle of Ages do something that the 3D games haven't quite achieved in my opinion. With the exception being Majora's Mask, as I would say it more captures the spirit of 2D Zeldas.

I am a huge Zelda fan and love them all, but for me Ocarina Of Time is the greatest and my second all time favourite game after Final Fantasy VII.

LoveSpuds401d ago (Edited 401d ago )

You sir, have good taste in games :)

I also love all of the Zelda games but I adore Windwaker (Specifically the HD version on WiiU) most of all. It is a close run thing with Breath of the Wild though.

Special mention to Cadence of Hyrule too, what an awesome spin off title that was!

GaboonViper401d ago

Cheers Spuds, yep i love Windwaker too, beautiful artstyle, and i loved sailing and finding all the secrets out there.

blackbeld401d ago

Agreed. For me top 3 of all time is.

1. ocarina of time
2. Final fantasy Vll
3. MGS1

GaboonViper400d ago

Brilliant top 3, would love a MGS1 remake that has been rumoured.

LoveSpuds400d ago

Yup, hard to argue with that top 3 squire, some quality games right there!

-Foxtrot402d ago

Oh gee can't imagine what Number 1 is


A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker etc is better than Breath of the Wild.

lockedongamer1402d ago

I respectfully disagree, but they're all great games.

porkChop402d ago

I think it really depends on what you're looking for. If you want a traditional Zelda game then OoT or WW would be better to you. But if you want a Zelda game that really leans into adventure and exploration, and if you want intelligent systems/logic, BotW would be the better game.

I enjoy both. I understand why some people aren't fond of it but for me it was a breath of fresh air that I really needed. I'd become so burnt out on unimaginative games and BotW sort of made me appreciate games again, as weird as that may sound.

godofboobees401d ago

Those are not traditional Zelda games

Crows90401d ago

Right...so let's pretend ocarina of time didnt have exploration, secret dungeons and other secrets. Complex boss mechanics and exploration rewards. At least a traditional Zelda has dungeons.

porkChop401d ago

What point are you attempting to make? At no point did I say that OoT didn't have any of that. However, the level of exploration and sense of adventure are vastly different between OoT and BotW.

Brazz401d ago

Breath of the Wild is overrated as shot, Wind waker is much better.

P_Bomb401d ago

I’m a Link to the Past guy.

MadLad401d ago

Majora's Mask still holds as my favorite to this day, despite being the black sheep of the series.

pietro1212401d ago

I love them all, but Wind Walker, Link to the Past and Minish Cap are my favorites

John_McClane401d ago

Link to the Past was so, so good! Those chickens though! 🤣
