This game is one of the most thought provoking games ever in the Zelda series, mainly due to the consequences of waking the Windfish, and yet it is overlooked due to it being a portable. In color it felt so much more like a console game and with the new color dungeon it added more content making it worthwhile to re-purchase from it's original Game Boy release.

The original was a great game and now having it in colour is even better, you really can't go wrong with this game since it really is just a great game on the GBC.

Epic is a word that gets thrown around the internet like a co-worker that keeps telling the same joke about his one vacation he took four years ago. Its grows tiresome and begins to wane. But before the current era of twitter and vernacular over-exaggerations, there was a truly epic tale. One that will stay with me like my first kiss and the first time I had to blow on my copy of Ghostbusters for the NES only to be disappointed. Spectacular from awakening to awakening.

The black and white version was my first Zelda game, and this colour version remains one of my favourites. The world is small but jam-packed with stuff to do; a far cry from the vast but empty spaces of the 3D games. Moving from dungeon to dungeon is as adventurous as the dungeons themselves. Available on the 3DS virtual console, as well as readily available on eBay, this game is definitely worth owning.

Great game. Everything is great. The story is better than usual. The gameplay is very alike the oracle games and even features Mario baddies!

Simultaneously one of the best Gameboy and Zelda games ever made! This 1998 re-release brought color to the world in addition to a new dungeon only available when playing on the Gameboy Color system! Speaking of dungeons, there's no shortage of challenging ones in this game - each having its own unique boss. This isn't simply a handheld version of the Legend of Zelda; it's a legend in its own right! Play it today! Fondly remember it tomorrow! It's the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX!

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Dig Dug II: Trouble in Paradise - NES
"This time tried doing something different with the Dig Dug formula- and it succeeded. Like Dig Dug, this is a game meant to be played on a few quarters in short bursts rather than playing for hours on end. The music is repetitive and catchy, and we have yet again an addicting arcade game. Comparing this port to the arcade, obviously it's been downgraded slightly. But all the gameplay is intact and the graphics and sound are pretty close. This is almost arcade perfect, and deserves five stars!" - cammysbutt

 Atari 2600 4-Switch Wood Grain Console - Atari 2600
"One of many revisions of the classic 2600. Built like a tank, many of these still run to this day." - sherberttcat

 The Last of Us - PlayStation 3
"This game is amazingly beautiful. Visually it looks stunning and detailed. The story is there to highlight what really makes this game good - the moment to moment narrative and character development. This game is about following the main characters and seeing the ways they try to cope and survive given their harsh situation. The gameplay itself is fantastic too - the stealth elements are awesome especially, and the survival, searching for resources and crafting stuff part is fun. Play this game!" - svenbtb

 Sega Master System Console - Sega Master System
"Wow I didnt know about the Master System till this CGR review. Thanks Mark!" - swabbers

 Operation Wolf - NES
"I used to play this on my old IBM 286 (pre-mouse). Really fun, but using the arrow keys was quite the nuisance. The light gun seems like a better option." - drockus
