Ahead of its time.

I played this game as a child and never fully grasped the entire scope of what this game is. Guised as a children's game, The Ocarina of Time is one of the most sub-text rich games I've ever played, with almost infinite replay value.Read full review...

Majora's Mask for N64

The game is another phenomenal journey through lightness and dark with all the challenges you would expect from the Zelda franchise. For Zelda Diehards this is a must play.

If you're willing to forgive some age, Ocarina of Time will delight.

When it first released in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time joined Super Mario 64 as one of the most revolutionary video games of all time. It isn't hyperbole to say that this game set the tenor for how action and adventure games would play for years to come.

Back then, the game was stunningly beautiful, with massive scope, intricate details and some of the most difficult dungeons the series had ever had. It was one of the N64's killer apps, and made a strong case for owning the console.

Now, in 2014, it's a little harder to see why this game was so influential and highly regarded. The graphics have aged very poorly, the revolutionary targeting system that changed the entire genre is a little wonky, and doesn't always follow your commands, and the game's wide overworld feels incredibly sparse.

Still, it's hard to argue against the core swordplay and dungeon crawling in Ocarina of Time. There are some puzzles and encounters that will still challenge even Zelda veterans today. There's still a ton of content here to have fun with.

Some of Ocarina's elements have aged, but that's pretty much par for the course with early 3D era video games. Nearly any game you pick up from the N64 and PS1 era is going to seem silly in retrospect at times. Still, this game and many others of its time are classics, and will still entertain today.

One of the best games of all time. Absolute MUST-PLAY.

There just aren't sufficient words in the English language to correctly express the reaction this game caused within me and millions of people around the world. This game was pure beauty when it was released. It built on everything Mario 64 revealed, and upped the quality 500 times, bringing the true spirit of Zelda into the experience.

This game was absolutely gorgeous. The music was amazing, despite the obviously crappy MIDI instruments, the dialog was simple yet effective, the game play was revolutionary and ridiculously fun to play with, the world was wonderful and remains awe-inspiring to this day...

...but the GRAPHICS. This was a huge step forward for gaming, even on top of the others that had already come out on the Saturn or Playstation. While it had no CG cutscenes, it was all about the gorgeousness of the in-game graphics. Not just the quality of the graphics themselves, but the presentation that took gaming to a whole new level. All games that try to evoke a reaction from the gamer along the lines of "wow, that looks amazing" has followed in this game's footsteps, from intricate lighting to dynamic music.

This game is commonly placed near the very top of just about every single "Best Video Game Ever" list, and even though this isn't my favorite game or even my favorite Zelda, there is a VERY good reason for the legendary status this game holds in the minds and hearts of the gaming community. If you have not played this, YOU NEED TO PLAY THIS.

Sure, today the graphics are clearly dated, but this is such a well designed and developed game that it's still a lot of fun to play even today. You owe it to yourself to go through it at least once in your lifetime. Play the 3DS remake with enhanced graphics and controls, if you really can't handle the aged 64 graphics. You seriously owe it to yourself to play this damn game.

Excellent Game!!!

One of the best things about this game, is it really can be played by anyone. The gameplay is challenging at times, and there is a lot of depth to this game. It is also a lot of fun, and there are many things you can do besides the main storyline. I bought it because it came highly recommended by a few people, and I am in total agreement with their recommendations.Read full review...
