Cdi Mario Vs CDi Link

Epic match between the two CDi giants. Which one was worse?

In all fairness, here is a link to a great article on the development of the Link/Zelda CDi games. (opens new window)

    Cdi link is worse! You can’t even make a decent youtube poop out of it.

    Well, as we all know, Link aka MA BOY has incredible skill at bombing dodongos, and, occasion, uses modern firearms to senselessly murder people.
    CD-I Mario does little more than hope the Princess made lotsa spaghetti!
    Link will just throw that lame, instant kill book at Mario.

    We should check out the enclosed instruction book to see what’s for dinner, gay Luigi? Or else you will DIE.

    CD-I Link is much, much worse. After all, the actual game itself, hotel mario, while exceeding boring to play, almost has decent controls and actually would have made a mediocre arcade game a decade ago. However, CD-I zelda has some of the worst controls in gaming as well as some of the worst lines in gaming. Sure cd-i mario says “You know what they say… all toasters toast toast” but cd-i zelda has lines like that constantly. It’s so much worse.

    SO THE WINNER IS…. CDI ZELDA!!!!! O wait, I mean the loser.

    “Another complaint is the flying enemies, which people claim harass you relentlessly. Not so! If you stand still and continuously kill them (resulting in a lot of useful rupees), they will eventually stop. Between twenty to thirty need to be killed, but once done there are no flying enemies until you change stages.”

    Sorry for double posting, but I read this from the article defending these games…
    TWENTY TO THIRTY ENEMIES PER ROOM!!!! Could you imagine in zelda one if every room kept swarming you with 20-30 annoying bats. Does this guy have any idea how long it would take if you actually killed 30 enemies per screen.

    “CD-I Link is much worse.”

    agreed,they butchered link worse than they butchered the hulk and thor in the rulk storyline.

    CDI Mario at least got plausible voices for them, and well they actually look a least a bit convincing

    “agreed,they butchered link worse than they butchered the hulk and thor in the rulk storyline.”

    You’re holding a serious grudge there, man. That book is just way too ridiculous.

    My prediction is that it will be recicled to have a higher number (a-la Thor #600) as soon as Hulk reaches a similar milestone. Hopefully they will change the creative team with it.

    “You’re holding a serious grudge there, man.”

    lol,well prehaps its my inner fanboy.

    You and me both. Love what they are doing on two out of my three main Marvel titles (Ghost Rider, Hulk, Thor) and hate the other.

    Just take a guess at which is the odd-man-out of this trio.

    CDi Link is worse, so he is the pseudo-winner.

    The deep and profound badness of the CDi Zelda games are too extreme to possibly cover in this post. For the thorough informing of anyone interested in just why these games are so bad, I think these videos say it best:
