When Nintendo foolishly licensed The Legend of Zelda to Phillips Media in the early 90s, the result was more than just Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon for the company's CD-i console. Link: Faces of Evil is the action complement to Gamelon's adventure game sensibilities. It eschews subtlety for a dungeon crawl-fest that is better left forgotten. This is no lost gem.


In 1993, Nintendo made the inexplicable decision to licence The Legend of Zelda to Phillips Media, creators of the CD-i. Among the resulting games is Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon. It's known as one of the worst games ever made. Replaying it 24 years later reveals a game with interesting ideas marred by atrocious execution.
