The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons Review

What can be said of Oracle of Seasons? Widely considered to be the better of the two Oracle games developed by Capcom, it actually started out life as a remake of the very first Zelda game. In fact, the first dungeon and boss character are almost directly taken from the first game. However, the Oracle games became something else in the end, something like Link’s Awakening spinoffs with unfortunate animal cameos (like a boxing kangaroo) and less interesting items.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages Review

I have seriously mixed feelings about Zelda: Oracle of Ages. It’s a decent enough game, especially given that it was developed by Capcom, but midway through the sixth dungeon things take a turn for the worst and the whole thing becomes nearly unbearable.

Oh, the temptation. Read more →

Lufia: The Legend Returns Review

Lufia: The Legend Returns is basically Lufia 3. It’s also a Game Boy Color game, despite the previous two being on the Super Nintendo, which means that it has about as much “Lufia” in it as fast food has actual food.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Review

There are also an insane amount of spoilers ahead, just in case you’re worried about the having the plot to a 1993 game spoiled. Read more →
