A unique, challenging and sporadically delightful co-op game - but forget about the clumsy solo play.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is more than just a fun co-op diversion from the large-scale solo adventures this series is known for. The challenging, intricate puzzles are great chaotic fun in local multiplayer or for a one-time run through in single-player. Limited communication tools make it difficult to play with adventurers online, but everywhere else it's a success.

A playful co-op experience that shines with mates, but isn't as precise or polished as a mainline Zelda.

Zelda does definitely work as a co-op multiplayer game, assuming you can find suitably competent allies, in this fun and charming spin-off.

It never settles into the replayable gameplay loop it clearly aspires to, but Tri Force Heroes offers some decent Zelda action

The newest installment in the storied franchise tries a lot of new things, but accomplishes only a few.

The newest Zelda can be a lot of fun under the right conditions, but it's more frustrating than not.

Nintendo had a fantastic idea with Tri Force Heroes, but the premise is underserved and undermined by some fundamental design issues and shaky online infrastructure. It's nothing short of a tragedy to wait a whole decade for another multiplayer Zelda and receive what feels like a largely unfinished idea with great potential.
