Game Boy Color64 Power / big.N / N Games (Sep, 2001)
Die Grafik überzeugt auf ganzer Linie und auch der Sound ist konstant gut. Links Steuerung wurde ideal gelöst, so dass man problemlos zwischen den Items hin- und herschalten kann. Die Schwärmerei über die geniale Storyline entfällt hier leider aus Platzgründen. Dennoch: Oracle of Seasons ist einfach klasse und macht endlos Spaß.
Game Boy ColorCubed3 (Jan 04, 2013)
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is an absolutely outstanding game. Along with Oracle of Ages, it's one of the best games the Game Boy Color library has to offer and can easily compete with Flagship's later efforts, like The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap on the Game Boy Advance. Unfortunately, Flagship ceased to exist in 2007 and its employees merged into Capcom's main studio, so it's very unlikely that another handheld Zelda game from them will ever be made again. What should definitely be seen, though, is both this game and Oracle of Ages being released on the 3DS Virtual Console, following the release of Link's Awakening DX shortly after the 3DS launched.

Bien sûr, les deux épisodes utilisent le même moteur. Graphiquement, ils reprennent le style des précédents Zelda sur Game Boy, en plus fin et détaillé. Mais c’est aux différents volets, sur toutes les consoles (NES, N64, etc.) qu’ils font des clins d’œil. On retrouve des personnages emblématiques et autres ermites cachés sous des rochers. La musique est toujours aussi envoûtante et, surtout, l’aventure reste passionnante!

This is probably the best example of two companies coming together to make two truly epic games. Both Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are ridiculously fun from beginning to end. The innovative password linking system makes owning both games even more rewarding. These two games will provide you with many hours of enjoyment and are worth every penny they cost you. Whatever you do, don?t pass up these two gems. For those of you saving up money to buy the Game Boy Advance, the first two games I?d buy for the unit are Seasons and Ages. Even though they aren?t 32-bit, none of the launch games for the GBA can compare with these two masterpieces.

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons are two reasons that I'd rather play games than watch movies, for the most part. Theses two are incredibly involving, to the point where I might (if I weren't a gaming journalist) end up wasting a lot of "valuable" time playing them again and again. That they are portable is the coolest thing ever. Never will a long plane trip be without Link again.
Game Boy ColorGaming Target (Jun 13, 2001)
This is quite possibly one of the best games for Game Boy Color. Any Zelda collection can’t be full without it.
Game Boy ColorGame Informer Magazine (Jul, 2001)
Seasons is more old-school than Ages, with many classic enemies and layouts. The changing seasons spice up the game, and give you even more to uncover. Each game rocks, so buy them both.
Game Boy ColorPortable Review (Oct 24, 2005)
The controls are easy to learn and the story rocks. What more could you ask for?
Game Boy ColorGame Informer Magazine (Jul, 2001)
Miyamoto has always kept his pointy-eared child on a short leash, yet with the release of Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, the family tie has been broken, and Capcom has temporarily adopted Miyamoto’s baby. Skittish as always, I was fearful that Capcom would butcher this property or commingle the play with its own wealth of franchises. After days of cold sweats and nail biting, I can happily say this is not the case.
Game Boy ColorRPGFan (Sep 15, 2001)
In conclusion, playing just Oracle of the Seasons is simply playing just half of a complete and large adventure. It is highly recommended to have Oracle of the Ages as well to experience the real ending to the game. Action-oriented RPG players will have a much easier time with this title.
Game Boy ColorGamezone (Germany) (Oct 04, 2001)
Zelda ist wieder da! Endlich ein neues Abenteuer mit unserem Helden Link auf dem Gameboy. Wie schon beim Vorgänger kämpft ihr euch mit eurem Schwert durch die Welt von Hyrule. Da das Gameboy-Zelda zum Glück in 2D ist, fällt die Orientierung sehr leicht und wer einmal angefangen hat sich ins Abenteuer zu stürzen, dem fällt es wirklich schwer den Gameboy wieder abzuschalten. Viele kleine Mini-Quests und eine Vielzahl an besonderen Gegenständen sorgen neben der wunderschönen Story für Langzeitspaß!
Game Boy ColorGameSpot (Jun 04, 2001)
Oracle of Seasons is as worthy a Zelda game as any in the series. This is the action-minded half of the Oracle duo, and your thumbs will get a noticeable workout along with your brain. However, button jockeys shouldn't expect to breeze through the game quickly; the dungeons especially contain some pretty devious puzzles. Seasons gives you hours of engrossing, enjoyable gameplay and, should you opt for it (and you should), an entirely new quest when you're done. What more could a handheld gamer want?
Game Boy ColorSuper Play (Sweden) (Sep, 2001)
I vilket fall som helst är dessa två titlar riktiga guldklimpar som lätt placerar sig bland de absolut bästa spelen som Game Boy Color har att erbjuda. Se den som en rejäl och pampig avslutning på konsolens karriär. Eller bara som två riktiga höjdarspel. Spela dem i alla fall, det är det viktiga.
Game Boy ColorRPGamer (2001)
Although Zelda might seem to be wearing thin over the years, and even though the GameBoy Color is fading into the mists of time, Oracle Of Seasons is a fantastic game that is packed to the brim with fun and adventure. Any Zelda fan, or any action RPG lover should thoroughly enjoy the game.
Game Boy ColorAll Game Guide (2001)
The one sore spot is the minimalist plot. For once it would be nice to play a Zelda game with some real meat on its bones, in terms of story. That rather weak criticism is about all one can muster for The Oracle of Seasons, however. It looks great, sounds great, and plays great, and is another successful title in the Zelda line. Capcom should pat themselves on the back, because they've outdone the big "N" on the handheld system, and given how good Link's Awakening was, that's saying something.
Game Boy (Oct 03, 2001)
Impossible d'énumérer l'ensemble des subtilités dont regorge Oracle of Seasons, mais je ne voudrais pas non plus vous gâcher la surprise de les découvrir par vous-même. Bref, Oracle of Seasons est bien le jeu culte que les fans attendaient, un titre comme il n'en existe pas encore sur Gameboy Advance et dont les joueurs GBA auraient tort de se priver. Quant aux possesseurs de Gameboy Color, ces deux cartouches comptent certainement parmi les derniers grands titres qu'ils auront encore la chance de voir tourner sur leur machine, et là tout est dit.

É desnecessário referir que se trata de um dos melhores jogos no Game Boy Color. Apetrechado de qualidade, seja a nível de jogabilidade como a nível da qualidade gráfica, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons é um jogo que transpira competência. O jogador pode contar com uma longevidade bem consistente, capaz de proporcionar dezenas de horas com muita exploração e uma aventura profunda. Sem grandes erros a apontar, existem mecânicas de deslocação que por vezes não funcionam de forma correcta, mas além desse pormenor é um jogo muito bem desenvolvido para a sua época. Tanto para fãs ou como para iniciados na série Zelda, este é um dos títulos que não vai deixar ninguém ficar mal, nele se encontra tudo o que há de bom na série.
Game Boy ColorNintendo Life (Feb 12, 2012)
If you're looking for a straightforward Zelda adventure, this battle-heavy quest is about as straightforward as it gets. Oracle of Seasons streamlines the franchise's formula to let challenging classic combat take centre stage, but adds in enough originality to keep it from feeling monotonous. There is much incentive to play the Oracle games together, and if you do, tackle this one second.
Game Boy ColorGamePro (US) (May 22, 2001)
The story and challenge of this Zelda adventure fit right in with the rest of the stellar series, making this one of the most gripping handheld games you can play, especially when you link it up with Oracle of Ages for even more adventures. Let's just hope Link's next adventures are a little more Advanced.
Game Boy ColorChrist Centered Game Reviews (Jun 01, 2005)
Here's where the game falters, as with most Zelda games. The game deals heavily with sorcerers, witches, and magic, and involves a great evil to vanquish. There is no bad language, or usage of the Lord's Name in vain, so rest assured that this game will not involve Christianity in it. That is perhaps it's greatest strength and it's greatest weakness. On the one hand, there is no worrying about whether or not this game argues Christianity, yet there is no saying the Christ is real. I, personally, sold the game because of it's darkness. It is extremely dark, just as Majora's Mask is. At a value price, it is at least worth checking out, and it won't bust your wallet when you sell it.
Nintendo 3DSNintendo Master (Jul 16, 2013)
The Legend of Zelda : Oracle of Ages et The Legend of Zelda : Oracle of Seasons sont censés être liés, pour vivre une aventure complète. Il n’en demeure pas moins que la trame principale reste la même, que le concept est très similaire, et le gameplay strictement identique. Ces deux jeux sont donc à réserver aux vrais puristes, qui d’une part ne seront pas rebutés par l’aspect graphique, qui quoi qu’on en dise date un peu, et qui réussiront à trouver un intérêt dans la rejouabilité, pour enchaîner plus de 20 heures par épisode, sans se lasser. Et c’est bien là leur plus grand défi ! Nombre de joueurs ne seront peut-être pas de mon avis ! Il reste à se poser la question suivante : ces mêmes joueurs auront-ils enchaîné les deux opus à la volée, ou au contraire, auront-ils laissé les années passer avant de vouloir s’atteler au second volet ? Le plaisir ne sera clairement pas le même !
Game Boy ColorHonestGamers (Jun 09, 2008)
Oracle of Seasons is still a good game and I had my share of fun playing it, but as a Zelda title, I found it to be somewhat disappointing. The thing I've probably liked the most about that series is how simple and accessible its games are — the sort of thing that can be picked up during a rainy day and messed around with for an hour or two just because they're fun and easy to get into. Seasons just doesn't have that same "it" factor that made me want to keep coming back to it after the dungeons got more complicated.
Game Boy ColorThe Video Game Critic (Jul 18, 2004)
Oracle of Seasons offers a few fresh ideas, but these are few and far between. My favorite aspect of the game is its mine cart rides, which let you alter the configuration of the tracks by hitting switches. Oracle of Seasons is a respectable Zelda adventure, but if you've already played Oracle of Ages, be advised that this just more of the same.
