Four swords! This game should be better right? I doubt it. This game has issues. If it weren't for all the collection stuffs, it would be a decent game but throwing the player back cause they are literally missing 10 pieces of things is kind of rude. In fact, it is frustrating. Nintendo should have looked at making the game less a collect-a-thon and more of a fun romp through the Zelda universe. The items are okay but this game is really marred by the fact that you can fail so easily to lose a level.
As for the story, it is passable. Sure this was the first time that Nintendo tried to use the Four Sword in full game. It is okay but really the Minish Cap is the best game in this little storyline. Vaati is a decent villain but this game just feels like a way to sell the GBA cable.
All in all, I can't really recommend this game that much. It had some fun ideas but the whole thing is kind of flat and simple. Tie that in with the frustration of having to collect an arbitrary amount of triangles just to win, it gets repetitive way to easily. Worth playing if you are a fan.
