The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time Review

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time Review - Nintendo 3DS

Disclaimer: I am a little biased here because I am a Zelda fan (I have statutes).  

The Game - This game has been hailed as one of the greatest games of all time.  Originally released on the N64 in 1998, it won numerous awards and have been re-released a few times as well.  Now you can take the game with you on the go.  The first thing that you will notice is the graphical upgrade.  Everything in this game has been given an upgrade/redesign and it looks great. However, some of the animations for Link look kind of ridiculous.  For instance, when he rolls or jumps to the side it looks funny.  The 3D on this game is okay, the only time I used it was in Boss Battles and certain puzzles.  Other than that I cut it off and the game played just fine.  Everything runs at a smooth framerate but I have noticed that on some of the mini boss battles that you can actually lose yourself behind a wall.  It only happened to me twice, once in Jabu-Jabu's belly and once in the Fire Temple.  Also before I forget some of the graphical touches are pretty awesome.  Like when you are in Jabu's belly everything around you moves as if you are inside a living being (play this part with the 3D on).



The Verdict - This game is a FULL PRICE.  If you have played it before or if you are looking for a good game on the 3DS.  This game has good length to it and replay value.  Also included in the game is the Master Quest version.  Once you beat the game the Master Quest is unlocked.  This version of the game has remixed dungeons, which can be a little unnerving but its still a lot of fun.
