This game is definitely the highlight of the collection, and is well worth the money.80GameCube Advanced
Zelda has aged rather gracefully compared to some of the games from its time, and it’s worth picking up for the portability factor alone.80Nintendojo
This is a mediocre re-release of a great game that is adequate, yet one can’t help but wonder how great it might have been if Nintendo hadn’t rushed it to the market.78BonusStage
This game gave birth to the best franchise in gaming. It brought so many new things that changed gaming in general. I will always love this game.100giannis2001
Not only is this the best game of the classic series, it’s arguably the best game in the history of the NES. [Summer 2004, p.14]100Pocket Games
Perhaps the game with the longest playtime of any released in this series, ZELDA not only features a long quest, but a Master Quest that doubles the length of the game.100Cinescape
More than any other game in the Classic NES series, The Legend of Zelda is just as good now as it was back in the ’80s. [Aug 2004, p.61]91Play Magazine
The game holds its own despite dated graphics and sound.91Gaming Age
One of the best games to be released on the NES years ago, and even though it is over fifteen years old, it still retains the fun factor as it did back then.90GameZone
If there is one Classic NES cart to throw your nickel to, it’s this one. Trust us on this. [Sept 2004, p.93]90GamePro
