A Fan's Point of View
My choice to buy this product was to have a collection of games available that could be anyone's entry into the world of Zelda!
Zelda is and continues to be one of the best titles Nintendo has ever put together. Link who is representing the hero of time, in this collection, hacks and slashes his way through the land of hyrule to save the fair princess Zelda. Ganandorf "GANON" keeps his sights set on the power of the triforce to inslave the world with its power. These installments of the story seem to drawn you in as you take Link on his adventures, collecting items and weapons to aid you on your journey along the way.
One of the most amazing quests in the series is the Ocarina of Time (included). Link in 3D and a quest as epic as ever. The replay value of this game is key with so many extra mini quests and items to collect.
The one that started it all, ZELDA (included) is a must have for any fan of the story. A challenging adventure to this day with alot of fun all the way.
Zelda II, the advnetures of Link (included), is a different approach to the series but has some interesting attributes. Not the greatest Link quest but a fun adventure none the less.
Majora's mask (included)is one of the most puzzling and exciting versions. This game will rack your brain to get the masks necessary to reach the end.
All and all, if your new to the adventures of Link, this collection will give you the opportunity to delve into his world and come out the other side begging for more. Luckily for you, there is more where this comes from. Enjoy this collection, grab your master sword and head into the land of Hyrule, Zelda needs your help!!!

Green Hood wearin' Madness!!
Well-here we have the 2 games that started, one that made you defy and control time against the freakin' moon & the greatest single N64 game made (IMO) in one All-Star like game for the Nintendo GC. You can look everywhere for a flaw here - but I am sure that God Himself would pat Mr. Miyamoto in the back and say "Thy games rocketh even greater in unison Nippon's Son".
To be honest I bought this compilation just for Ocarina of Time - but Zelda I, II & Majora's Mask are outstanding games to have even in the age of flawless graphics these games in the squarish simplistic roots still show why Zelda is the 2nd greatest franchise of Nintendo's arsenal of Masterpieces.
45/10 for this Godly game

The Greatest Zelda Compilation Under One Disk
The Legend of Zelda has for about 15 years been a great series on the Nintendo systems. I think the Zelda series is the most action packed series on any Nintendo system. It began with the Legend of Zelda, which introduced us to the new epic series. Then they surprised us with the Adventure of Link, which unlike the game before it, was a side scrolling plat former. Of course a few games were released in between the Adventure of Link, and The Ocarina of Time, but since they are not included in this I will not mention them. In 1998, two years after the Nintendo 64 was released, a new 3 dimensional Zelda appeared. The game is of course called the Ocarina of Time. The game was a great succession to the Nintendo Entertainment System's older games. It featured a great story line, nice gameplay and of course the best graphics I ever saw on the Nintendo 64. After that came the Majora's Mask. Sadly many people didn't like this game. It was short, but it was still fun in my opinion. Of course we all know about the Wind Waker, but only a demo of the game appears on this disk. You'll be happy to know that all of the games mentioned above appear on this disk! It may be hard to get, but its worth it!
The Legend of Zelda:
I'm surprised of the graphics in this game. Sure the character images are kind of less detailed, but other then that this game's graphics are solid, especially for the system this was released on.
Adventure of Link:
The graphics our really not that bad, once again. However they aren't the best, either. Graphics don't make a game though.
Ocarina of Time:
The graphics in this game our the best on the Nintendo 64. They our nicely done. I really like how they worked on the time of the day in this game. When its in the evening the sky turns reddish, and it effects shadows and other things. When its in the morning, you see fog like in the real morning.
I hate to break my words but the graphics on this game our just plain awesome. When your on the mountain, and its snowing it looks like it really is snowing. I love the graphics in this game, though sadly on this version there's a bit of a slow down. It shouldn't ruin it too much, though.
Legend of Zelda:
Of course most of the music and sound in this game is classic Zelda. When you first start your journey you will here the Zelda theme song. No slowdown to report about on this game.
The Adventure of Link:
The music in this game kind of changed a little bit. However I love the Temple music. If you have played Super Smash Brothers Melee before, you will realize that the tune is in the Hyrule Temple fighting course. I love the music in this game simply because I like Zelda.
Ocarina of Time:
The music in this game is awesome, and really great. The music in this game really fits the atmosphere. Some of the later dungeon tunes our plane awesome. Of course the Gerudo Valley theme plays in this game, too!
The music is really awesome in this game. Its very nice because it also fits the atmosphere. There isn't much classic Zelda music in this one, and there's a slowdown in the music. Other then that I love it.
You can bet all of the games our going to have great gameplay. The only one that really differs is the second game. Its all classic gameplay here. Think goodness the battles are not turn based.

I fully recommend Zelda games, and this disk is a great place to start!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Such an amazing collection of games. I misplaced my first disk and bought a second on the idea that even if I find the first, I love this game so much that it's always good to have a backup. This Collectors Edition disk includes four games and a 20 minute demo of Wind Waker. Gamecube disk playable on most Wii systems, how can you go wrong? The Zelda games are classic adventure, action, and puzzle-solving games, with beautiful scores of music. Wonderful plot-line exists in all of the games. I fully recommend this series, and this particular disk is a great place to start.
A must-own for any Zelda fan!
What can I say, if you love the Zelda series, then you won't be disappointed with this game.
It's a bonus Legend of Zelda Disc that includes complete, emulated versions of the original NES games - The Legend of Zelda, and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Nintendo 64 games include - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (standard version), and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
Also featured: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker 20-minute demo, as well as Wind Waker and Zelda series retrospective video clips.
All games are playable in progressive scan display. Both Nintendo 64 titles run emulated at a resolution of 640x480p (verus the original 320x240i).
A must-own for any fan of the Zelda series.
