Fantastic!

Reviewed By: Hrith on 07 Feb 2011

Rarely have I had so much fun in Zelda: A Link to the Past.

The gameplay and riddles may seem exceedingly difficult, but they’re all feasible with carefulness and patience. There are ROM hacks of ALttP which are unplayable because of absurd difficulty, Parallel Worlds is not one of these.

The changes in sprites are really nicely done; the game looks better than the original and one has to love the Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker references in the visual aspects of the new sprites.

The game still contains numerous glitches (which is to be expected with so many drastic changes), but none are game-breaking nor do they prevent Parallel Worlds to be a fun adventure.

This gets a big yes from me, and to all Zelda players who would hesitate: don’t let the difficulty put you off, you’d miss out on a great experience.
