The Zelda oracle games

I was just wondering about these games… is it worth getting one if you’ve already got the other? Only I’ve seen them for about £15 each in my local second-hand store and I’m sorely tempted to get both… but not if the games are too similar.

Sooooo… should I get both, or just one? And if just one, which one?

Opinions will be as valued as ever :slight_smile:

Get the other one. NOW, you mere mortal. If you have both, and beat one, you can use a password in the other one to start out with some gear, access new items and areas, and even get a new dungeon and alternate ending.

Exactly. Not to mention you need both to fight the final boss (three guesses as to who it is). And the Lv. 3 Shield, Sword and other stuff. And more Heart Pieces (I think those come with you)

Becides the similar graphics and the gameplay, the two are completly different games with different storylines. Get both.

Yeah, it’s worth it. While I hate games that have two versions and you can only get everything when you have both, this is different since the two quests are nothing alike.

Ah, thanks, that’s what I wanted to know :wink: The new question is, which one should I get first? :wink:

Even though the games are very similar, they have enough differences to make them worth it. They are pretty much different games, but have similar gameplay (but is that really a bad thing?).

Seasons is a bit of an action Zelda, while Ages is more of a puzzle one. And you do need both to get to the actual last boss.

For the password, beat one of the games and press all the buttons at the same time when it says “The End”

It doesn’t really matter, but I think I’ve heard people say it’s better to start with Seasons. But It’s your choice, like Moon Beam Girl said, Seasons is more fighting, Ages is more puzzles.

I think saying that the Oracle games are like Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time is a nice comparison. Both games play very similarly (minus the time element in MM), but are still quite different and fun. The Oracles are a bit more similar, but I’m just trying to say and show that the Oracle games have many similarities in play, but are different enough to warrant a purchase of both. The GIA gave each Oracle game a 4, but a 5 if you get them both, so that says something I think. I have both (just got Seasons yesterday) and Seasons maps and characters are completely different. The stories are pretty similar at the start, but that is pretty much it. Even though the Oracle games link together, they aren’t like Pokemon or something to where there are just different enemies or something and the core game is exactly the same.

Start with Seasons; it’s a bit easier IMHO.

Seasons is the better of the two to start with. It allows you to get used to the mechanics of the games and gives you an intro to the puzzles. The puzzles in Seasons are sort of built upon in Ages.

i don’t know…i got ages first and i actually found seasons to be the harder one.

is that just me, or is it like this for anyone else?

Well, do you like action, or do you prefer puzzling games?
It’s different for each person. I started out with Ages and did a linked Seasons, and I found Seasons easier than Ages (all those stinkin’ puzzles, not to mention that GORON DANCING! I thought I’d never get through that! :suckah: )

Just get them both. I liked sasons better but, ages wasn’t so bad either…

Im glad you asked, since ive wondered whether or not to get them on occasion as well.

in that case, i guess i prefer puzzle games over action games.

and yes, the goron dancing is hard. took me an endless amount of tries before i finally got through that.

I liked Ages better than Seasons. Kind of had a better storyline like Kor said.

God I HATED Goron Dancing
