The Game:
There's not much left to say about this classic piece of gaming history. Everyone who has ever played the game knows that it's a masterpiece.
If you don't know it: PLAY IT!

Censorship:
Everything that might come across as being religious was altered by Nintendo of America. Not even the subtitles stayed untouched. Parts of the story were changed for the same reason. One example: Agahnim is no longer a priest but a wizard.
TITLE:
The biggest alteration of the game can be found in its subtitle:
Kamigami no Triforce ("The Gods' Triforce") was changed to A Link to the Past.
