In the multiplayer game, Four Swords, between two to four players take on the roles of young adventurers who answer a challenge from the Triforce. They must brave the dangers of multiple dungeons in a quest to find the Master Sword. Their strength will be tested by fierce monsters, their wisdom tested by complex puzzles, and their courage tested by having to cooperate with each other to overcome obstacles.

IGN Cube:

"Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is definitely one of, if not the finest games released on the GBA this year. Four Swords is Nintendo's way of giving gamers something completely new and different in the Zelda environment, and it's one heck of a good time in each play through."


Game Spot:
"A Link to the Past was one of the greatest games to be released for Nintendo's 16-bit SNES. The game brought the classic NES series up to the standards of the day, adding plenty of new gameplay elements while still maintaining the same basic feel of the original action adventure game."

"A Link to the Past is an amazing game. Heck, it was third on our all-time top 100 list (EGM #150), so you know it rocks. And this GBA version is a carbon copy of the old classic (with the added bonus of being able to save anywhere). You simply cannot miss this game."
