The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds é a sequência perfeita do clássico da Super Nintendo. O aspecto visual excepcional e as novas mecânicas implementadas de forma impecável foram concebidas de forma exemplar, conservando o ambiente nostálgico do título em que foi inspirado e ao mesmo tempo presenteando o jogador com uma aventura completamente renovada. Com uma história magnífica, cheia de surpresas e de personagens memoráveis, A Link Between Worlds é uma nova lenda que nasce em formato portátil.

Nintendo Life (Nov 14, 2013)
Without a doubt, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is currently the greatest game you can experience on the 3DS. Much like the legendary Master Sword that features throughout the series, this game is beautifully crafted and offers a superbly streamlined and timeless gameplay experience. Through Link’s new transformation ability Nintendo has instilled a magical amount of innovation into the dungeons, boss battles and even the wider exploration of both Hyrule and Lorule; it’s a small feature which makes a world of difference and continuously wows you throughout the entirety of your playthrough. In other areas, Nintendo has made all the right changes to the gameplay formula, resulting in a game that is always incredibly good fun to play. Long-time fans will certainly get a kick out of its nostalgic presentation, while all players will appreciate its impeccable design and superb usage of the 3DS's touch screen.

Anime News Network (Dec 04, 2013)
Link Between Worlds perfectly recalls the thrill and wonder of Link to the Past, evades the pitfalls of post-Ocarina Zelda, and brings enough new twists to make it satisfying in its own right. This is not just a game mimicking the past successes of other, better games, though, perhaps, it is cleverly disguised as one. Link Between Worlds is the best Zelda in recent memory, and the only caveat that springs to mind when discussing it is "how long will it be until we get another one this good?"

Even so, time has a way of melting away as you immerse youself in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It's probably the best Zelda title in 20 years.

Un retour aux sources pour ce Zelda qui réserve pourtant pas mal de bonnes surprises. On aimerait juste qu'il soit un poil plus long… Mais il vous fera sans peine oublier les Zelda précédents sur DS.

Man wird sehr früh von der Leine gelassen, um sich mit den vielfältigen Waffen und Hilfsmitteln in herrlich vertrackte Dungeons zu begeben, die einem hinsichtlich Logik sowie Hand-Auge-Koordination bis zur finalen Tür fordern. Dahinter warten dann Bosse, die zu den besten Widersachern der Reihe gehören. Zwar stirbt und flucht man fast so wie in einem Dark Souls, aber genau diese Mischung aus Freiheit und Spannung lässt einen mit dem 3DS verschmelzen. Ich kam manchmal über Stunden kaum davon los, zumal der Gemälde-Effekt das ohnehin vielfältige Rätselrepertoire weiter bereichert. Auch wenn man hinsichtlich der ewigen Wiederkehr des Helden erzählerisch nicht überrascht wird und musikalisch Wünsche offen bleiben, ist das Spieldesign fast perfekt. Dieses Abenteuer macht einfach nur Spaß und dürfte schon bald bei der Diskussion um den besten Teil der Reihe mitmischen.

A Link Between Worlds is a delightful return to the classic game we loved. There aren’t a lot of improvements, but the additional world and new power are more than enough. While the story might not have a great premise, the ending is satisfying and something fans will really enjoy. Needless to say, this is a Zelda game that fans and newcomers alike can enjoy and makes the perfect title to pick up and play or conquer while on vacation.

WiiDSFrance (Nov 21, 2013)
Même pas encore sorti que WiiDSFrance a déjà terminé l’aventure contée dans Zelda : A Link Between Worlds. On devrait être content, finir le jeu à 100% et passer à autre chose mais la vérité c’est qu’on éprouve déjà de la jalousie envers tous ces joueurs qui ne savent pas encore ce qui les attend… Preuve s’il en fallait encore une que la cartouche est clairement l’un des jeux à ne pas rater en cette fin d’année 2013. Une aventure magique qui devrait booster le moral des troupes d’Eiji Aonuma dans leur quête du Zelda ultime. Un épisode un poil décevant par son scénario très léger et des donjons où on arrive à la porte du boss tellement rapidement parfois qu’au final on reste un peu sur notre faim. Ces deux détails mis à part, que vous soyez fan ou nouveau venu dans l’univers du kokiri, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés. Le Link version 2013 peut bomber le torse : son épopée n’a pas à rougir face à The Legend of Zelda : A Link to The Past.

Men haka inte upp dig för mycket på det. Du kommer att trivas toppenfint i Hyrule oavsett om du är helt ny till serien eller ser fram emot att återbesöka den ännu en gång.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is definitely a solid entry in the series. While it doesn’t add a lot besides the flatten mechanic against the wall, everything it does is well done and a joy to play. If you’re a Nintendo fan, this is a great title to add to your collection.

Replonger dans l'atmosphère de Zelda III : A Link to the Past, vingt ans plus tard, avait de quoi faire envie à tous les fans de la série et ces derniers pouvaient légitimement douter que la magie opère de manière aussi forte encore aujourd'hui. Et pourtant, l'aura de nostalgie qui se dégage de cette suite rappellera aux plus anciens d'entre nous l'époque où la saga n'en était encore qu'à son troisième épisode... et quel épisode ! Bien que reprenant la carte du monde du volet SNES, Zelda : A Link Between Worlds parvient à briser les conventions et à mettre en place suffisamment de nouvelles trouvailles pour happer n'importe quelle génération de joueurs dans son univers. Il ne lui manque qu'une durée de vie accrue et une difficulté plus élevée pour nous satisfaire pleinement.

Ich bin ein riesiger Fan von A Link to the Past, habe damit unzählige Stunden meiner Jugend verbracht und spiele es heute noch gerne. Entsprechend skeptisch war ich, als Nintendo einen Quasi-Nachfolger für den Nintendo 3DS angekündigt hat. Glücklicherweise zu Unrecht, denn auch das neueste Zelda-Abenteuer hat alles, was das Herz eines Fans höherschlagen lässt. Hinzu kommt eine gehörige Portion Nostalgie. Allerdings gefällt mir das neue Leihsystem für die Gegenstände nicht besonders gut, da es den Gedanken des Ich-werde-immer-stärker-Prinzips nahezu komplett zerstört. Ein Klassiker wie sein Vorgänger ist The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds nicht, aber dennoch ein sehr gutes Spiel.

A Link Between Worlds past de uitstekende Zelda-formule nog maar eens toe om een meeslepend, zij het ietwat voorspelbaar avontuur op te voeren. Een must voor fans én nieuwkomers!

Mash Those Buttons (Dec 04, 2013)
I didn’t like the item rentals and felt they soured some of the game’s experience, but this is still a hard, hard game to put down. The new challenges and looks of the dungeons keep them fun even though I don’t get items from them anymore, and all of the new mechanics added to the exploration when I thought it was getting stale. The modern updates to the game’s graphics and sound make it an even better package, turning it into a solid run through the nostalgic feelings of those of us who loved A Link to the Past. Getting Ocarina of Time on 3DS may have been good for some people, but for me, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the one you need to take on the road.

Despite some growing pains with the changes made to A Link Between Worlds, it’s definitely something fans should appreciate if they wanted a slightly more experimental title in this longstanding series. I hope some of these structure changes and implementation is only the start of a path onto some more neat ideas for the series from Nintendo, rather than just a one-off trial.

En termes de mécaniques, A link Between Worlds est inattaquable. Ses donjons et chemins sont assez tortueux pour que les aventuriers en herbe s'y retrouvent. Pour ce qui est du contenu et d'un supplément d'âme, c'est une autre histoire.
 
Diehard GameFan (Nov 28, 2013)
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the successor to 1992’s SNES release of A Link to the Past. It brings with it familiar sights and sounds, but still manages to work a number of secrets and surprises into both the plot and the game’s world. This title makes the best use of the system’s 3D technology as well as introduces the most non-linear design since the very first Zelda game. The new merge mechanic that turns Link into a poorly drawn painting is a welcome addition and factors very heavily into the design. I hate to say that I doubted that this title would measure up to the legacy left by its predecessor, but I’m happy that it exceeded my expectations. Go buy it.

Nintendo’s most recent offering of A Link Between Worlds is one of the finest entries into the series, and is leveraged by its fantastic additions and changes to the original formula fans adored. A definite must for any fan of the franchise, especially if A Link to the Past was one of your favorite games from your childhood.
