Read a game review of the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure multiplayer adventure video game for the Nintendo Gamecube and GBA.

It's up to you and your friends to save the day in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures multiplayer game for the Nintendo Gamecube video game console. This may be the newest Zelda game for the Gamecube, but it's also the most retro-looking game going. What's the deal with this four-player adventure game that requires a Gamecube and a Gameboy Advance to play properly? Find out with our review!

The Story on The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures!

A Gamecube and a GBA? Yup, you need 'em both and here's why - there are four Links fighting evil but if one of 'em wanders away, rather than dragging the main TV screen around, they show up on your GBA so they don't mess up everyone else's fun. Same deal for when you're talking to people and when you get special messages - they all show up on your GBA so you don't interrupt your friends' fun. Once you have the game started, it's adventure time as you and your friends' battle to stop a villain, solve puzzles, rescue fairies and save the world!

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures Wicked Stuff

Whether it's using four-player teamwork to solve puzzles, playing the cool mini-games (Hammer Tag rules!), picking up your friends' character and tossin' him around or just all the cool stuff the game does to make it easy to play - this game rocks. The fun starts when you plug it in and it'll only stop 'cuz someone's laughing so hard they pee themselves, or when you realize that you've played all night long and you're late for school.

Weaknesses in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

The closest this game gets to a flaw is that the graphics are original Nintendo style retro - blocky pixels and flat 2-D characters. It's still more fun than a cream pie food fight, but the graphics could be better.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Final Word

So, is this game wretchedly retro or totally styling? Easy answer, The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords is awesome. It's a splash of retro gaming with a high-tech edge that'll keep you and your friends glued to your tube.
