Several classic games all in one place, a must-have for fans and collectors
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
This bundles is fantastic. It not only has emulated versions of the original Legend of Zelda game, as well as its sequel, but also includes arguably one of the greatest games ever created, if not the greatest. It also has the followup to that much acclaimed masterpiece Ocarina of Time: Majora's Mask, which is in its own right an amazing game, overshadowed and undervalued due to the overwhelming success of the predecessor.
While many of the younger players will not appreciate the first two games, Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link, because of the far below modern standards graphics, the crucial gameplay elements that have made the Legend of Zelda an enduring and much beloved series are all there. Puzzles, enemies, and items abound. However, if buying this for a younger kid, they will likely focus more on the latter two games: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, as these are more comparable to today's standards for graphics.
That means that this disc is really more for the hardcore Zelda fan and the collector crowd, because both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are available on the Wii virtual console, and it would cost a lot less to buy them through there. Also, Ocarina of time has been re-released on the Nintendo 3DS, with upgraded graphics and resolution (not to mention the 3D), making this disc more of a relic. In fact, with the upcoming release of the newest Nintendo console Wii U later this year, this disc is unusable. While the current Wii is backwards-compatible with GameCube games, the new console will not be, meaning one would have to hang on to the old Wii just for this and other Gamecube games, or end up buying them through the virtual console anyways.
However, despite its now technologically antique status, it still is an amazing collection of games, and those games are what are most important play-wise. However, considering how much it costs to buy this now rare disc, it is highly advisable to get the games elsewhere, especially for kids who won't be interested in the first two and who will want the trendier versions of the second two.

Best Zelda Collection Ever!
This game is by far the best collection of Zelda games you can get, with popular titles like: The Legend of Zelda, Legend of Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask.
The Legend of Zelda
-The first game of the Zelda series. This old school classic brings us back to the graphics of the NES and the famous screen scrolling adventure that started it all. This game is packed with secret areas and loads of items to buy, classic dungeons and bosses that challenge your skills and mind.
Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link
-The second game in the Zelda series, it is known as the least popular Zelda game of all time. Many Zelda fans did not like this game because it was the first and only zelda game to be a side scrolling RPG, meaning that you needed to kill monsters to get exp. points and level up your health, magic and sword. It was also the only game that you could collect magic containers as well as heart containers. I have watched a walkthrough of this game and I believe that all though it may be different it does look like a good game and I like it, it has alot of good features and is harder than most zelda games, it is a compelling game that I feel deserves at least a good try.
Ocarina of Time
-By far the most popular title of the Zelda series as well as the first Zelda title to come out on the N64. This game is the action packed adventure through time that delivers numerous hours of game play with secrets, side quests, and mini games loaded on top of that. You can spend days of game play getting upgrades, new items, gold skull coins, and pieces of heart that will keep you satisfied till the very end. The story line is intense and will keep you hooked from the very beginning, and of course the dungeons are more awsome than ever before. Including one of the hardest temples of all time the Water Temple. A must have for Zelda fans
-Last but definitely not least. My personal favorite of the Zelda series. This game takes place basically right after the Ocarina of Time. I find that the storyline is really well done, it may not be nearly as long as the Ocarina of Time but it still contains several hours of game play as well as all the secret goodies and items. This time around you are trying to stop a skull kid possessed by an evil mask who is trying to crash the moon into the Earth, and you only have 72 hours to stop him. Once again you will find yourself flying back and forth through time, going through numerous dungeons and even a new feature, the masks. There are several masks to collect and each one does something different, or just looks cool, and now with the power of the masks you can turn into your favorite Zelda characters such as a Deku, Zora and Gorron. This flight of time will keep you on the edge of your seat as you battle time, a possessive mask and your mind. Another must have for the Zelda fans.

The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition Is A Must-Have For Any Zelda Fan
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
The Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition is a worthwhile investment for any fan of the series. For those who have already conquered the dungeons of games past or others who are just getting started, I would recommend that anyone who has an interest in this series should check out these classics on a single promotional disc.
Included titles are: The Legend of Zelda (NES), Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64), and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64).
If your favorite title is not found on this disc (such as Link's Awakening or A Link to the Past), don't pass up the opportunity to nab it for a great price nonetheless. With the backwards compatibility of the original Wii, one can enjoy these 4 titles as well as 3 other Zelda games on a single platform!
There's a reason why this game is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running action adventure series. I have played and enjoyed every Zelda game and I'm currently playing Ocarina of Time for maybe the 5th time. Because this contains 4 classic Zelda games and a demo of The Wind Waker, there is no better bang for you buck if you have a Game Cube or a Wii. The only problem I have with the game is that it doesn't include A Link to the Past. However, if you have a Wii, you can download it for 800 Wii points. This game includes: The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, a 20 minute demo of The Wind Waker, Wind Waker Special Movie, and Legend of Zelda: A Retrospective which is a special arrangement of some scenes from all the games between The Legend of Zelda and Wind Waker. Like I said, this game is packed and it will be a coveted item for all fans of the Zelda franchise.

The Legend of Zelda (Collector's Edition)
It is a must have for any gamecube/Wii owner. It is a great chance for those who did not get to experience it's addictive gameplay on the original NES console, as well as for those who wish to take a stroll down "memory lane". There has never been nor ever will be a game that can live up to the phenomenon that is Zelda. An engrossing adventure whose tale spans 8 systems and 3 decades. It is easy to see why fans of the franchise love it and keep coming back for more, and can't wait for the next installment to arrive. I HIGHLY recommend this game to all. It's price is worth every penny, especially considering the fact it is 4 games in one, and cannot be purchased from a retail store. Buy this game and kiss your free time good-bye!
