Wenn Ihr bereits im esitz eines Zelda IV-Moduls seid, ist der Kauf nicht unbedingt zwingend, aufgrund der Ergänzungs-Features jedoch durchaus interessant. Für GB-Color-User, die kein Link's Awakening ihr eigen nennen, ist die Anschaffung dieses Referenztitels spätestens jetzt ein absolutes Muß.

Une « boutique photo » a également fait son apparition sur l’île : après la visite, le propriétaire vous interpellera de temps à autre pour immortaliser vos exploits dans son album. Si vous disposez de la Game Boy Printer, il est même possible d’imprimer les plus grands moments de votre quête. En un mot comme en cent : Zelda DX justifierait à lui seul l’achat d’une Game Boy Color!

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening has never been anything but one of the top video games of all time, and its latest, enhanced version is nothing short of perfect. For years to come and then some, it will continue to remain one of my all-time favorite adventures, and unless someone puts a couple of gun barrels to my head, my opinions won't be swayed. If you don't already own Zelda DX, there's no reason from this point on that you shouldn't. So hop in your car and step on the gas, 'cause the best Game Boy game of all time has been for sale for quite some time, and you're missing out on oceans of fun.

Un grand classique "colorisé" et déjà un incontournable sur Game Boy couleur.

Le meilleur jeu de la Game Boy revient en couleur, et on n'a pas le droit de la manquer. Ce Zelda revisité offre des bonus incontournables.

Since a lot of you may have been shocked (even I was) when you saw my "Sound" rating of 50%, I'll explain it. Had I reviewed the original one, I would have given it a much, much better grade. But to put it bluntly, the Game Boy Color's sound is horrible. First off, to turn it up you switch down; to turn it down, you switch it up. Second off, when you switch it all the way down (which turns it up), it sounds like only 40% of the original Game Boy's sound (Nintendo used a much smaller speaker for this model). Thanks for reading.

Tack vare kameran kan man inte bara fotografera och spara sina favoritdelar av ön, utan även skriva ut sina bilder med hjälp av Game Boy Printer. Och på så sätt alltid minnas detta underbara äventyr.

Zelda : Link's Awakening est tout simplement le meilleur jeu qu'il m'ait été donné de tester sur Gameboy Color. S'il est un jeu que vous devez avoir sur cette machine c'est bien celui-là !

In the end, though, such complaints are more the fault of the system than the developers. And when it comes to what the developers packed into this cartridge, well, it's nothing short of spectacular. Thank goodness Link doesn't learn his lesson and keeps venturing out to find adventure. It keeps us couch gamers entertained!

La version DX n'apporte rien de plus à la version monochrome, qui heureusement était déjà excellente. L'optimisation du jeu pour la portable couleur donne toutefois un regain d'intérêt (et de lisibilité) à un titre à la durée de vie étonnante, parfaitement adapté à son support et qui concentre sur une toute petite cartouche le meilleur de l'univers de Zelda.

Bref, Zelda reste toujours une des meilleures productions de la GameBoy, surtout en couleur. Un jeu à ne surtout pas rater pour tous ceux qui ne le connaissent pas sur Gameboy. Pour ceux qui y avaient joué sur Gameboy, vous pouvez le racheter, ne serait-ce que pour venir à bout du niveau supplémentaire !

Though Link's Awakening DX is an old wine in a new bottle (and a paint job to boot), there's no denying that this is one of the most enjoyable and tightly designed action-RPGs on any console. If you've finally splurged for a Game Boy Color, then this is the perfect game to accompany it.

Basically it comes down to this. If you already played Link’s Awakening, don’t bother with Zelda DX. The changes that have been made definitely don’t warrant purchase. But if you haven’t played this superb game before, go get it. I, for one, am happy Nintendo decided to revamp this one.

The best game in Game Boy history is now even better. Even with the new dungeon, most of the game play is the game as the original game, though. But for anyone who hasn't thoroughly explored Link's Awakening, this game is a must. We have a new leader for the top of the Game Boy charts.

The beauty of Zelda is that it makes the scary world of console RPGs easily accessible for anyone, blending action, adventure, and good old-fashioned gameplay into one seamless package. It's definitely one of the best Game Boy games ever, and it looks better than ever. We can't urge you enough to play this game.

Link's Awakening DX is considered one of the best and most well-designed Zelda games for a reason – the graphics and sound are archaic but add to the charm of the game, and the gameplay and dungeon design is arguably some of the best the series has to offer. For a mere $6, it offers one of the best price-to-quality ratios of any game on Nintendo's Marketplace. If you are a Zelda fan, old or new, you owe it to yourself to give this game a whirl.

Ik vind het jammer dat Nintendo niet een compleet nieuw Zelda-spel heeft ontwikkelt om hun GB Color aan te prijzen. Voor originaliteit scoren ze dus niet erg hoog. Echte Zelda-fans zullen het spel toch wel kopen, maar als je budget beperkt is, vergeet dan niet dat dit geen nieuw spel is.

Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is a fun and entertaining adventure. Fans of the previous three Zelda games will find that this game provides yet another fine set of dungeons, battles, and secrets to find. The portability makes it a great game to play when you're away from your TV, computer, and consoles. It's well worth its $30 price tag, and will be even better deal when it is inevitably re-released as a $20 "Player's Choice Million Seller".

Au final, sûrement le meilleur RPG de la première portable de Nintendo devançant sans problème les 2 Oracles (Zelda: Oracle of Ages et Seasons~) car personnellement j'ai été très déçu par ces 2 jeux.
