Angry Video Game Nerd (Episode 93)
Zelda 2

Zelda 2 was one of the first most highly anticipated games back in the NES days, along with the likes of Super Mario Bros 3, but what happened? It isn't a bad game is it? Many fans were split by the decision of taking a beloved overhead adventure game and making it a side scroller.

In this episode the Nerd picks up his sword and shield to go on an adventure into Hyrule. We'll see the Nerd give his honest opinion on Zelda 2 as he fights to the end, but can he beat it? Watch him rage as he dukes it out with Moblins, collects bags of Pee, travel treacherous terrain and after all that get some "hot coffee" from grateful townsfolk.

Originally released in Japan in 1987 on the Family Computer Disk System and 1988 on the Nintendo Entertainment System in both America and Europe, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link was the first and only official side scrolling Zelda game in the series. Going on to become known as one of the worst, if not the worst Zelda games amongst fans due to its radical change and difficulty from the previous Zelda game.

Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto said in an interview that whilst he didn't think Zelda 2 was a "bad game", he thought that they (Nintendo) could have made it a better experience but were held back by hardware limitations. To this day the Zelda franchise has experimented with different ideas over the years, with Zelda 2 being one of the more drastic but necessary steps into making one of the most beloved franchises of all time.
