Tips & Tactics: The Legend of Zelda
In my NES days, I had no idea this book existed, but I would have loved it. My brother owned The Official Nintendo Player's Guide which had a lot of detailed maps and tips for The Legend of Zelda, but this book goes into much more detail.
I do not own this book, but I have read it.
- The grammar is pretty bad with a lot of Engrish moments. For example, the Triforce of Wisdom is referred to as the "Wisdom of Triforce."
- Despite having a wealth of information, a large amount of the book's content is essentially duplicated from the original game manual.
- A lot of the television photos are so close up you see a mess of RGB dots rather than an image. The photos from the game manual are much better.
- Some of the screenshots are from the Japanese version of the game with the Japanese text obviously obscured with a black mask.
