The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Old School To A Fault (Jimpressions)



The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a stunningly faithful recreation of a classic Game Boy adventure. It's gorgeous, too. I mean, really gorgeous.


Its got an aesthetic that demonstrates perfectly my argument that raw graphical power is not necessary make a stunningly beautiful game. In fact, Link's Awakening may be the best looking game on a console full of lovely visuals.


As far as the gameplay itself goes, it's certainly nice. And old school. With a little emphasis on the "old" part of that phrase.
