Top 6 The Legend of Zelda by Metacritic

We’ve all been following the arrival of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and seeing the sky-high marks it’s been getting through the reviews. On some note aggregator sites, such as Metacriticwe have a good look at which one is the best game in the franchise – according to the critics who rated it on its given release.

We have gathered here the top six according to their final grades, regardless of the generation they were part of. It may be old or new, but they are still icons and have set the path for an entire industry since their arrival. Check it out below:

6 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (95)

Released on both Super Nintendo and Game Boy Advance, A Link to the Past was responsible for boosting thousands of young people into the mythology created by Nintendo for The Legend of Zelda. Only the GBA version achieved a 95 in the aggregator, since at the time of the SNES it was not yet on the internet (the site was created in 1999).

Where to play: Super Nintendo, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo Switch Online (SNES)

5 – The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (95)

Direct sequence of the events seen in Ocarina of Time, in it we follow Link trying to save the city of Termina from the impact of the Moon – which has already brought us several memes about the “Dawn of the Final Day” and accompanies the community to the present day. Controlling several masks, the hero gains distinct powers and became an instant classic, despite having a darker plot.

Where to play: Nintendo 64, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch Online (N64)

4 – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (95)

One of the main titles for the Nintendo Wii and GameCube, Twilight Princess was responsible for bringing a more mature dynamic to the famous saga, moving The Legend of Zelda to a world dominated by dark creatures and transforming even the hero into a very cool wolf. . Unfortunately, it never won a remake or remastering on more current platforms, leaving the adventure in the past.

Where to play: Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U

3 – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (96)

Another one that unfortunately was left in the past, The Wind Waker brings us a completely flooded world where we see pirates and navigators braving the seas. Link ends up becoming one of them, showing how the switch to cel-shading could impact the franchise without losing its commitment to a quality plot and gameplay worthy of appearing in the top 3 of the series.

Where to play: Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Wii U

2 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (97)

We arrived at the game that opened the doors of the Nintendo Switch! Breath of the Wild was released alongside the hybrid console and conquered not only a new legion of players, but also redefined how we interact with the open world in 2017. Even though six years have passed, many still consider the unforgettable adventure and its sequel – Tears of the Kingdom – is already among us to prove the impact it had on the gaming industry.

Where to play: Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo Switch

1 – The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (99)

Although we have gone through several titles, it was there on the Nintendo 64 that the “best game ever” was born. At least, according to Metacritic. Ocarina of Time emerged to further expand what we knew of the franchise – however, with everything in three dimensions – showing how they could evolve and bring an epic story in tow. It’s had several versions over the years, and if you can play any of them, it’s sure to be fun.
