Top Ten Most Overrated Legend of Zelda Games

I love legend of Zelda as much as the next guy but Legend of Zelda has some games that I find not worth how as much as people praise it for now don't get me wrong I'm not say these games are bad I'm just saying they are not as good as people say they are.


The Top Ten

1 A Link Between Worlds

I liked this game but people treat it as its own game (yes I know that it added the feature where you can go walls) but it is still a 3D version of a link to the past. - Thecyanryan

2 Phantom Hourglass
3 The Legend of Zelda 2: Link's Adventure

I couldn't stand the side scrolling I love side scrolling games but that is not what made legend of Zelda the legend of Zelda it should have been open world like the first one. - Thecyanryan

4 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Only because everyone thinks that just because it is in HD it's better well it's not it's not better. - Thecyanryan

5 The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure
6 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Are you serious? This is DEADLY overrated! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

This game is probably the MOST overrated video game on this website - not only is it number 1 on the ''best Legend of Zelda games'' list, but it's even number 1 on the''best video games of all time'' list! Wind Waker is the best, in my opinion - and Wind Waker is NOT overrated - even the Twilight Princess is higher than the Wind Waker on most lists on this website! Ocarina of Time is scam - it's not as good as everyone says on this website - Wind Waker is WAY better!

7 The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
8 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I didn't find it bad I Found it somewhat enjoyable from the graphics to the game play the only reason I put it on here is yeah the motion controls were amazing but it lagged a little bit. - Thecyanryan

9 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

They keep saying it's a Master Piece, but the game has some Obvious Issues like the Weapon Durability system, The pacing is quite slow and finding the Shrines, World Bosses, and the Korok seeds in the world gets seriously tedious. And the Menu System takes forever to scroll through when you need to equip armors, Weapons, or eat something. I still like the game! And I quite like this Big Hyrule. But the insane praise from critics and non-fans is why I voted for it. - MajesticAlpha

10 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

The dungeons were to easy - Thecyanryan

The Contenders

11 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
12 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

I like it it's just that people act like it is better cause it is in 3D it's not better sure it's really good but the graphics on the Nintendo 64 is part of the reason I love the Nintendo 64 the weird looking graphics are amazing to me I don't know if this apply's to anyone else but to me it does. - Thecyanryan

Agreed - ModernLife

13 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
14 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
15 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
