Things get nostalgic with the next game in our tournament. Skyward Sword‘s battles rage on as Ancient Cistern currently leads the poll, but we’re approaching a more retro-feeling Zelda title today. A Link Between Worlds is in many ways a love letter to A Link to the Past and Zelda games of old, but in the same breath, its also a stepping stone toward the freer direction the series has decided to take.
What is the Best Dungeon in A Link Between Worlds?
A Link Between Worlds may have used its connections to the SNES era to appeal to old school fans, but it’s also one of the freshest Zelda experiences we’ve had in a long time. So many Zelda traditions were thrown out the window. Most items were no longer found in dungeons, but rather rented from a shop. And most dungeons did not need to be completed in a certain order; players were free to complete them in any sequence they wanted.
Now, this approach to level progression had both positive and negative effects. Some fans have argued that dungeons in A Link Between Worlds were less complex because each one had to be designed such that it wouldn’t rely on the completion of others. But despite that gripe, I would say that there were some really memorable experiences in the game’s dungeons as well.
So, it’s time to decide the best dungeon in A Link Between Worlds.
