FINALLY! Someone Figured Out How To Make Zelda II Good!
Admit it: No matter how much you try, you can’t wish away the fact that Zelda II: The Adventure of Link’s experiment with abandoning everything that made The Legend of Zelda good – IE replacing the isometric, open world exploration/questing, with platforming – was a bad, bad idea. Yeah, I said it. TAOL just wasn’t that good of a game. But it didn’t have to be that way, I really believe that. Well, via Kotaku, it looks like I’m not the only who feels this way.
See that shot? It’s Zelda II, only as a first person Shooter. Called, cleverly enough, Zelda II: FPS, you can play it in your browser. Just download it here. I can’t really oversell this. It’s everything you love about Nintendo, combined with everything that makes the internet great. Play it. Now. I’ll be over here with my Power Glove.
