Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is the second game in The Legend of Zelda series. It was seen as a letdown to many fans of the first game, in particular because the entire game engine shifted from a top-down view, to a side-view platform. Zelda II also has a sharper learning curve and incorporates RPG elements like experience points, levels, and spells.

However, the story elements are all there, and the game is actually pretty solid and a lot of fun, if you can forget that it's a Zelda game. However, the game tends to cower in the mighty shadow of the original.

Music

Like the first Legend of Zelda (NES), Zelda II didn't have spectacular music. It has a couple of fun tracks and some good mood music, but at the end of 1986 when the music was created the composers were still trying to figure out how to even make music for the NES, let alone make good music. The titles come from the soundtrack, but a few tracks from the album--that were merely sound effects--were left out.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
