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

 Missile Command - Arcade
"I only got to play MC on an early Atari home system. Don't remember which model." - Rob

 Missile Command - Arcade
"Such challenge" - elias

 Einhander - PlayStation
"JRPG king Square's foray into shmup territory, and to many, a masterpiece of the genre. The fully 3D polygonal graphics were top notch for the time, with weapon's fire & explosive effects accompanying the mayhem of scrapping metal giving a sense of visceral gratification that impresses to this day. Einhänder's unique premise of literally picking up the weapons of downed enemies coupled with its militaristic war stricken atmosphere make it a quintessential experience for any shmup enthusiast." - leaon79s

 Kid Niki: Radical Ninja - NES
"Probably one of the stranger platformers for the system. Its tough as nails, but very addictive." - sherberttcat

 Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition - Xbox 360
"Taking the 3D Metroidvania concept of the first game and expanding the 'castle' into a city enclosure - The next logical step up for the series. The gameplay itself is largely unaltered, being the same group-based brawler emphasizing exact timing. But a larger area = more exploration & side missions, with genuinely clever puzzles adding detective variety. The GOTY Edition is the comprehensive package of this title, and so the ideal version of this epitome of super hero game design. A Must Play." - leaon79s
