Zelda Collectors Edition

Did you buy it? If you did then this thread is for you! I personally enjoyed it mostly since you have 4 of the best zeldas in one, but 2 things annoy me. 1: The freezing in MM, having to re do the entire pirates fortress is not fun :/
2: Wind waker preview, i want the GAME not a preview of the game.

Other than that though i loved it

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I have it, and I enjoyed it although the random lag and audio screw ups in some of the games is annoying. It never froze on me though.
I also hate how they have OoA/OoS in the retrospective video, and yet those games aren't in the collecter's edition -.-
One other thing is playing games like the first Zelda. That game was not made to be played with an analog stick. It's still worth playing though

Well, the game was newly released at that time and it's understandable that they only included a demo. Interestingly the full game is actually on the disc, if it wasn't for the time limit you could play and finish the entire game.

It was also missing ALttP and LA. In case of ALttP the game was ported to GBA at that time, which is why they didn't include it on the disc, naturally they wanted you to buy the new GBA version. And with the help of the GameBoy Player you could play all GameBoy Zeldas on the GameCube anyway. The Collector's Edition was only meant to complete your Zelda collection for GameCube, so that you could play all Zelda games on the GCN. This message was even stated somewhere on the disc.

This was the whole purpose of the Collector's Edition. They didn't give you any games, that you could buy and play in any other way on the GameCube, it only included the games that you couldn't play on the GameCube at all.

To have the disc was really, really cool back then on the GameCube, but today it's completely outdated.


Edit: About the freezing... I could never finish Kafei's Quest because of this, too bad. The Wii VC version worked fine though.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

Got it, PAL edition. Majora's Mask also froze on me, and the framerate was bordering on intolerable in my opinion; noticably worse than on the N64!

Looking forward to playing the version on the VC

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I have it. Well, let's see:

MM never freezes
WW demo crashes my GC

Other than that, it's all good.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

Been through 3 copies, currently have 2.

Theres Slowdown in MM, occasionally, and even less often in OoT.

Never had an issue with the WW demo, and I played the ♥♥♥♥ out of it.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I enjoyed it as well. I never actually had any kind of problem with it. I've played many hours of Majora's Mask on it, and I've played a lot of the original Legend of Zelda.

I would have loved it even more if A Link to the Past had been on it, though. That's the game I've wanted to play the most.

I recall Miyamoto saying it was his goal that all Zelda games (at that time, at least) would be playable on the 'cube.

Just get the GBA port + Game Boy Player, and you're set.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

The collector's edition MM only froze on me when I tried to open doors while simultaniously jumping somewhere...
So don't do that and you're fine.

The collector's edition was worth the money (or rather the Ninendo Club stars in my case), but nowadays you could just get them on VC.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

It was okay more for newbies in my opinion but you had to buy the GC to get it but it was a sweet deal

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

Collector's edition was the first time I got to play OoT and MM since I never had a N64. MM froze on me once just after I got the Giant's Mask in Stone Tower. That was a bit irritating lol

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

The framerate for Majora's Mask can get pretty brutal, but it's still a more consistent safe way to play the game than on the N64, nevermind how much nicer the GC controller is compared to the N64.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

My friend actually ordered it for himself (since he already had a Cube) and then bought a Cube for his brother or something and it came with the disk. His brother didnt want it or something so i ended up with it. Nice deal.

Anyway i liked it and its a really nice part of my Zelda collection. Needless to say i dont really use it anymore but to hell if im getting rid of it. (i collect the games) MM actually did freeze a couple of times when i played it on the disk so i didnt play MM on it much.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I had the game, but I sold it because

1. I have all the games on it.
2. The games kept crashing.
3. OoT was edited. I miss the blood.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

That was the game that got me into gaming itself. Majora's Mask never froze on me. There might have been a delay, however I wouldn't have noticed it, because I never played Majora's Mask on Nintendo 64 back then. I loved the collection. I wish the Ocarina of Time version had kept the blood red, though.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I actually ended getting two copies of that disc. If I recall, that disc was if you reordered Nintendo Power, which I did. Well, I never got the game and so I called Nintendo Power to find out why. They said it was an error and they sent me another one. Well, got either the first one finally or the new one and a few weeks later got a second copy in the mail. Rather than sell it, I brought it to school with me and just gave it to whoever wanted it. Made the most sense to me, as I was younger and really care for making money off the game. Plus it was free so giving it away didn't bother me either.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I had the Collector's Edition, it was how I beat the first LoZ. I don't have it any more, because I sold it recently when my Wii was stolen, so I have no more Collector's Edition. It was really good, though. I liked it a lot.

As far as MM freezing up; how come I never realized this? The game worked fine for me.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I had it, loved it. But I lived in a household where the discs would go wherever the user saw fit, so it's missing now. Bummer. :/ So I bought them on the Wii market.

Re: Zelda Collectors Edition

I got to Level 8 on LoZ on the Collector's Edition and thought I had saved and found out that I didn't. I had to beat 6, 7, and 8 again, which were the hardest ones for me including those FREAKING DARKNUTS.

*sigh* By the way, never beat LoZ or AoL <_<.

I remember having a lot of trouble with those Level's, too. It was horrible, especially when I'd forget to save- like you.

I had a problem with AoL on the CE, actually. It didn't seem to handle as well- in my honest opinion- on the Game Cube when I compared it with the original.
