I binged it on my way to and from school. I really liked it, and 90% of the time the animation stuff generally works out very well. I think it's the smaller movements that look a bit awkward, but when a lot of stuff is going on it looks great.
I 100% think Link's Awakening is a better and more interesting game. If you have not played A Link to the Past before, you'll probably see it for what it is; a pretty standard Zelda game. What I mean by that is that it is very well designed, but it is also super predictable and bland. Link's Awakening, on the other hand, is to A Link to the Past what Majora's Mask is to Ocarina of Time, except it doesn't have all the bad parts that drag Majora down. It's a true gem.
