Story: Many years ago, the Kingdom of Hyrule enjoyed a long time of peace and prosperity. One day, evil rose from the land and began to enslave all the good people, led by the evil lord Ganon. A young boy named Link saves Impa from a group of Moblins. Seeing the potential, and the warrior instinct in the young boy, Impa requests his help to save Princess Zelda, who was captured by Ganon. To save her, he must retrieve the eight pieces of the Triforce of Courage, which the princess split, before her captivity. Now the destiny of Hyrule, is in the hands of Link.
Concept. Gamers will start with Link in the overworld of Hyrule. Where they have to get eight pieces of the Triforce of Courage, in which Zelda split before she was captured by the evil wizard Ganon. The gamers will get a variety of weapons, new swords and useful items such as a red mail, a raft, a ladder and even a red candle.
Music: How can no one get tired of the famous theme of the game? Well, of course no one will get tired of that music theme ever. This had marked the beginning of Koji Kondo's masterpiece, he is known as the Hans Zimmer of video game music. I would think that Mr. Kondo would be a good rival of the great Nobuo Uematsu, the John Williams of Final Fantasy music.
Tips and Strategies. Since the first Legend of Zelda game is incredibly hard, especially in the second quest, I would suggest to be careful in some boss fights since they are so hard they will make you cry, throw a fit, and break your Nintendo controller. Manhandla is one of the most frustrating bosses of the game, you will have to destroy all four heads, but when one head is remaining, he'll be fast, and that will annoy you to the max. Gleelock is by far the toughest boss to defeat, a large dragon that has four or three heads, depending on which palace you are, and which quest you are playing.
Rantings. My most hated enemies besides Manhandla and Gleelock are the Like Likes, these monsters are one of the most annoying enemies in the series, when you get too close to them they will eat up your strongest shield, and you'll never get it back, making you go all the way down to a merchant and buy it again, wasting your money. I also hated that shooting arrows are equivalent to wasting rupees, but in A Link to the Past all that changed. Wallmasters were a constant annoyance as well, you got caught by one and then took you back to the beginning of the stage. The snakes were annoying, I mean, any little enemy in NES games, was a major annoyance, it will make you break your controller
Good Aspect. Though a very difficult game, The Legend of Zelda is considered a cult classic among veteran gamers of the 80s. This game is what started the saga, but in terms of storyline, the beginning of the saga was Ocarina of Time, considered to be one of the best games ever made.
Characters: The characters in this game are very memorable. Link always had his job to save Zelda, destroy Ganon, and obtain the Triforce. On the other hand, Zelda always summoned the young warrior for her, and is frequently captured by Ganon, but saved by Link. Ganon was always a power-hungry wizard, he had to capture Zelda in order to know the location of the Triforce, but his plans were always foiled by Link in the end.
Overall: Although this game is hard, especially the second quest. It is a great game that lives on in the hearts of many Zelda fans around the world. So I give this game a big fat 10/10
