Ingenious game, just shy of the
brilliance that is Ocarina of Time.
Link's Awakening is the best handheld
game ever made by far, none come close.
It even eclipses it's 'big' brother A
Link to the Past in scope and depth, on
an underpowered system no less! A system
never made for a game of this magnitude.
If that's not an achievement, I don't
know what is.
Very good sales also,
especially when combined with the DX
version. Very happy about that.

My all time favorite Zelda game (yes,
I've played all of them) even more so
then Ocarina of Time. Even without its
namesake Zelda this game stands out as
truly unique, with easy the most heart
wrenching ending an game has ever had.
Your not a Zelda fan if you haven't
played this one.

I may be one of the few, but I
wholeheartedly agree with you. Playing
it for the millionth time right now.
