Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64, 1998) - European Version
About this product
|Nintendo's acclaimed action role-playing series makes its Nintendo 64 debut as a 3D adventure that transforms the land of Hyrule into a dynamic, fully interactive world. Ocarina of Time is the first Zelda game to be played from a third-person perspective set behind the elfin character of Link, necessitating a new control scheme. Link can now lock onto his targets, allowing him the freedom to move around the environment while the camera remains trained on the selected enemy. Jumping is automatic when Link approaches a ledge, and weapons or items can be freely assigned to the controller's yellow buttons for quick access. |
The storyline follows Link's maturation from a young boy to a determined adult, as he journeys across the land to help those in need and to fulfill his destiny. Link will be able to acquire several items from the famed series, including a bow, which switches the perspective to a first-person view, bombs, a boomerang, and the hookshot. New to the game is the titular ocarina, a musical instrument whose songs can transport Link to different locations, change day into night, and more. He will even be able to summon a horse named Epona to make traveling the expansive world easier.
As Link explores his world, he will encounter numerous quests to complete on behalf of the local residents and participate in an assortment of mini-games, from horse racing to fishing. Since the developers were intent on retaining the same feel as in previous Zelda games, players will be required to solve various environment-based puzzles while delving into dank dungeons, whether it's lighting torches or shooting targets with the bow. Each dungeon culminates in a cinematic boss encounter until Link eventually confronts his (and Zelda's) nemesis, the evil Ganon.

Ebay supplied me with an affordable price to enjoy this priceless classic.
This is one of my all time favorite games hands down. I remember playing this as a kid and playing it again as an adult brings back a lot of great memories and experiences. I have seen countless locations selling Ocarina of Time for $50 US or more and though I believe it to be priceless I could not afford so much for it. Ebay provided a more affordable price and allowed me to enjoy this priceless classic.

Best Zelda Game Ever?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released on Halloween Day 1998. It took the epic of the Legend of Zelda and made it so much better than it's ever been before. You play the role of Link, a young boy who discovers his destiny is to rescue Princess Zelda. On your adventure, you will interact with dozens of people, journey through many towns, and fight hundreds of different enemies. The game takes place over 7 years, and things change over those 7 years. For example, children grow up, towns develop new buildings, and quests differ depending on your age. The game is filled with a massive amount of seemingly endless secrets and side quests. I would say that this is by far the most atmospheric game on the N64, meaning that there are more places to visit in this game than in any other game. This is arguably the best Zelda game ever made, and there sure have been some gems in the Zelda franchise. Anybody who owns a Nintendo 64 should own a copy of this.Read full review

An absolute treat of a game - definitely one from my childhood that I hold near and dear to my heart.
