This game is EPIC! Honestly, it is a fantastic video game. It remains one the best games of all time in my opinion. It started the classic Zelda formula (Get three things, then unlock seven dungeons). It also brought back the top-looking-down perspective to for those who were mad about the second game switching to a side scroller.
So what happens in A Link To The Past? The real question is really what doesn't happen in a link to the past? This plot is all over the place. But, basically you start as young Link. You get three pendulums, then the master sword, then princess Zelda get's kidnapped. You then get sucked into the Dark world and need to find seven christals.
Thats a breif summary, but so much other stuff happens. I can't even begin to explain all of the other twists and turns, in conclusion, this game is a lot of fun and I think it's the best release for SNES I've played so far.
