Product Description

Product Description

Link's latest adventure starts as Vaati the wind sorcerer stirs trouble having been locked away long ago by the power of the Four-Sword. When Princess Zelda mysteriously goes missing, Link is tricked into releasing Vaati from his prison. Now our hero must use the power of the sword to split himself into four and once again lock Vaati away.

The four identical Links have to battle their way across eight classic areas of Hyrule powering up the Four-Sword by collecting Force Gems. Once the sword regains its power to repel evil, Link can destroy dark barriers and uncover the ominous secret behind Zelda' s kidnapping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Includes cable 5 Jun 2005
First off this game is really quite brilliant and amamazing fun in multiplayer especially with the mini eponas.
But I also thought it was important to make clear that the version of four swords amazon is selling DOES include a gameboy to gamcube link cable as they do not mention it anywhere in the information.
Just saying because there no point buying more cables than you need.
I hope this information is useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game - shame aboot the multiplayer... 20 Aug 2004
By A Customer
O.K first of all I'm going to say if you hate 2D games you definately won't like this. If you're sane you will.
This is the latest Gamecube Zelda game, and despite the simple graphics it's amazing fun. The old skool style graphics should please fans of the old SNES and Gameboy Zelda games, but the explosions and other lighting effects have been given a wind waker style make-over. I personally didn't like Wind waker, but the cartoony style graphics really fit here. You'll find yourself battling against hordes of enemies at the same time, but you'll have 4 Links to make things a bit easier. There's sections where you must go into the GBA to solve puzzles, which gives the game an interesting twist, and makes it slightly more challenging. Thankfully for everyone who doesn't own a GBA you don't actually need one for the single player game. However the big dissapointment with this game is that if you want to play it in multiplayer you need as many GBAs and GBA-GC link cables as you have people. I don't see why Nintendo object to people using controllers!
But overall this is an excellent game, which would have gotten 5 stars, if it wasn't for the stupid GBA multiplayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! 17 July 2004
I imported the Japanese version of this and it is amazing. The graphics are like a really hi-res version of the SNES game, with some really nice effects too- definitly the best 2D graphics I've seen. It plays alot like the SNES game too, except now four of you with GBA's will be able to play together. It makes very good use of the GBA link up, you need to use it when you enter a cave or house but if you are playing alone you can use a regular GC controller. Unlike all the previous Zelda's, there is no huge world to explore, its all level based, which means that you can quickly choose a game on multiplayer. The game is not huge on single player, but on multiplayer it will last ages, because the levels are so fun you will just replay them loads of times. I really like the way that the muliplayer option is not wasted, the puzzles actually change slightly depending on how many people there are playing, and its a nice combination of co-operating and competing (there is also a winner at the end of each level for getting rupees, not dying, killing enemies etc.). The story is not special from what I can tell in Japanese, but it doesn't seem important when you're having so much fun! This is now my favorite multiplayer game and definitely the best thing that Nintendo have done to show off their GC-GBA link up. If you are a Zelda fan and have been playing the games so far, then you will be happy to see all the enemies, locations, and music back.
The only problem is that I don't think Navi Trackers is going to be in it, and thats a shame as it was easy to play and very fun even in Japanese. I'd say its worth it for the single player... but if you have friends with a GBA then its pretty much essential!

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh... if you don't have anyone to play with 23 April 2013

It's was ok, not quite a zelda like we are used to.

The solo game is ok, but it over so soon that made the game not worth it if you don't have anyone to play with.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, plays easy 15 April 2005
Ok, before anyone jumps down my throat, I have no reservations about how the game looks. I loved the golden days of Zelda games, and personally found Ocarina..+Windwaker a little... un-Zelda-ish.
Anyway, this game looks just like the old ones, but with some nice updated lighting effects and Young-Link-style sprites (wow, sprites, nevermind polygons :) those of you who dont think you like the old school, almost-plan-view 2D cartooniness need not buy this game - your all idiots and youre missing out, but I wont waste my time telling you that :)
Now onto the downside. As has been pointed out, multiplayer requires a GBA/SP and link cable per player. This is a bit pricey, but those of us who kept our loyalty to nintendo (despite some shocking releases) can smile smugly while the rest of ya decide if you think its worth it. The GBA integrates really well, although sometimes you dont know which screen to look at. Personally, I'd like to see more GC games with this feature, e.g each player's 1st person view on GBAs with a map on the GC screen might work for Metroid. Its certainly interesting.
I can tell you it is worth it - in my opinion this game is designed for multiplayer, and is a lot more fun played that way. Single player, the puzzles involve a lot of going back and forth to take small steps; small steps quickly accomplished with two or more people playing.
This takes me on to my final point, and the one that left me most disappointed: This is NOT an old Zelda game. That sounds obvious, but what I mean to say is that it doesnt compare to the older games like Link to the Past (from which a lot of the bosses/puzzles and style are borrowed) simply because it is too easy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun at a gastronomical price
It is classic zelda. Fun, with good puzzles and a super storyline, they are all the backbone of a great zelda game. That is why I hated Wind waker and Legend of zelda II. Read more
