I’d purchased the Oracle of Ages several months ago as part of some promotion Nintendo was having for the 3DS. So I figured recently would be a good time to finally give it a shot and kill some free time with.
I’ve been a huge fan of Zelda games since probably 1986, and have really played through almost all of them by now. Oracle of Ages despite being originally released in 2001 for the Game Boy Color was still a lot of fun to play. The graphics are very dated by todays standards, but the puzzles and exploration is still a lot of fun. The whole Zelda formula has yet to get old for me.
I do recall when this came out way back in 2001 and a lot of the kids who would come into MegaPlay where I worked at the time tell me how great of a game it was. I can’t recall most of their names now, but if I randomly run into them all grown up now will surely have to agree with them.
Just as solid as the Oracle of Seasons which I played a few months back, and really holds it’s own today despite it’s age and the platform it was originally made for.
