Team-Up Adventures With The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Forces

It’s not the typical adventure for Link this time around, as The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes puts you with two other Links to take on new challenges and bosses that really puts the teamwork together with some clever designs. Following the release of 2011’s A Link Between World, Tri-Force Heroes‘ focus as a multiplayer title is definitely a step in a new direction for the Zelda series.

The Legend of Zelda Tri Force Heroes

Taking the familiar dungeon crawling, puzzle solving elements of previous Zelda games, Tri-Force Heroes imbues the things fans of the series loved about Zelda and ramps it up with co-operative elements. While it’s not as challenging the other Zelda games, it does add a layer of levity in the dungeon crawling when you and your buddy are trying out different solutions to solve puzzles (which, more often than not, results in hilarious situations).

It is these mechanics of relying on your friends (or A.I. partners) in tackling puzzles and bosses in the game, makes Tri-Force Heroes stand out from it’s peers. Stacking the Links on their shoulders together to reach higher places or flipping three switches at the same times in different places, Tri-Force Heroes focus on multiplayer shines bright with the right type of puzzles and challenges.

Which makes it disappointing that the experience you get by playing Tri-Force Heroes by yourself pales in comparison when teaming up with friends. Sure, you can use A.I. controlled Links to help you out, but controlling the other Links requires you to jump between them so much, that it becomes too bothersome to perform.

One thing that veteran Zelda fans might be turned off by is the difficulty of the game itself, which is practically non-existent. It seems that Nintendo wants Tri-Force Heroes to serve as a lite-Zelda to introduce new gamers, to ease them into the world of Zelda. Most veteran players of Zelda won’t find much challenge here, and coupled with the lacklustre single player mechanism, Tri-Force Heroes won’t do much for the single-player hardcore fans.

For those what want to experience a multiplayer Zelda with elements of the dungeon crawling and puzzle challenges in lite form, then Tri-Force Heroes is definitely worth the try.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes is available now exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. Stock up on your Nintendo digital wallet with OffGamers by picking some Nintendo eShop Cards!
