Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
A review and playthrough by Darris Pratt
Released in 1987 and 1988 (in Japan and the United States), Zelda II is a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda, an adventure game released on the Famicom and Nintendo Entertainment System. It's hero was the same Link of the first game, set several seasons after the events of the first Zelda title, but with a different Princess Zelda, as this Princess had been cursed to sleep for generations. As the brave hero Link, you travel through the world, discovering different cities, dungeons, and crystals used to free Zelda from her many years of slumber.
With Shadow Link felled and the Triforce of Courage in the hands of Link, he makes his wish, bringing the Princess out of he deep sleep. You are given your "Game Over" screen as a curtain drops down, with Link and Zelda embracing, almost exactly like the first game.
Next Time: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
