    Timeless Classic

    This game is amazing and has stood the test of time for almost 20 years now. Originally released in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has blown many away and was the introduction to the now 30 year old series that still captivates many to this day. This game received a remake on the Nintendo 3DS back in 2011 in celebration of the Zelda series' 25th anniversary. The remake included improved graphics, an extra Master Quest built in, new features (such as gyroscope aiming), and some fixes to game play aspects. Basically they took an already perfect game and gave it a minor face lift and made it available on the go. So what could they do to make it even better? Well, this Nintendo Selects version of the game officially reduces the price to $19.99. Pair that up with Best Buy's Gamer's Club Unlocked and it only gets 20% cheaper from there. If you've never played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and are looking for an amazing game on your Nintendo 3DS, I highly recommend you give this one a shot.

    A worthy remake of a still classic game

    I was on the fence about getting this as I wondered if the new look and 3D effects would make it worth playing again. I've already played this game on multiple systems already so I waited and waited and was just a little disappointed when it went out of production. I was happy when I saw this finally get a re-release in the Nintendo Select catalog and as I had Best Buy reward points to cash in as well, I went for it. I'm glad I did. It sure does look nice for being such an old game. While the 3D effects are cool at times, I end up turning them off after awhile. It's great to have this game on a handheld system to take with me wherever. The game is virtually identical to what most of us already know so hard to say much about it that hasn't been highly talked about for almost 20 years now. For the most past though I'd say it still holds up to today's standards as a fun game.

    This was one of those games my friends always said, "I can't believe you've never played ocarina of time!" Well it was because I never had the proper console, so when I got my 2ds, because I am cheap... And 3d gives me headaches, I purchased this game right away. I am so glad I did too, my favorite part about it is it doesn't hold your hand like most modern games do. There is no waypoint to reach and the puzzles are actually well thought out and fun. If you want assistance though then you can stick your head in a little visionmabob and it gives you a visual hint. The story is enthralling and fun and if you are looking for a fun game then I recommend this if you haven't played it ever like myself or if you want a good replay of it. Based of YouTube footage I don't really see much of a change in graphics from the original but hey, it still looks awesome!

    Still a classic Zelda Experience

    There are seemingly infinite reviews of OoT as a game, so I will speak about its merit as a 3DS remake. The 3DS Remasterings of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are superbly done. I would unquestionably label them as the definitive versions of each respective title. Gyroscope controls make aiming a breeze. Superior frame rates and graphics allow for longer play periods that are easier on the eyes. Revamped inventory menus make item management much less intrusive. And of course, all of the joy and wonder that the original games provided are still perfectly intact. Ocarina of Time even comes with Master Quest mode, which is a guaranteed challenge for even the most seasoned Zelda fans. Every 3DS owner should have OoT and MM 3D.

    Purchased The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Nintendo 3DS game for my daughter for Christmas. She is an avid gamer and she loves playing the Zelda games on all platforms. She uses a Nintendo 3DS whenever she isn't gaming on her PC. After playing it for a few weeks, she said that this game was everything she expected and more. The technology and graphics continue to get better and better over time which makes these games so much more fun compared to the Nintendo Gameboy she started out with. What a huge difference in the quality of game play...and the Zelda series never disappoints either.

    Good Game Harkens Back to SNES

    This is a solid 2D Zelda game, the best top-down entry since A Link to the Past. In fact, the games use essentially the same overworld map. It's a very familiar; it's like going back to the old neighborhood. This is less linear than most other Zelda games. You rent your weapons and can obtain them all near the beginning of the adventure. I didn't like this aspect of the game at first, but once I got used to the idea it was okay. The dungeons are fun and some of the puzzles are fresh and challenging. Although I think 3D is generally gimmicky, this game makes pretty good use of depth in a few places. It's not A Link to the Past or Ocarina of Time, but it's a good entry in the series.

    Great classic

    Game is great, its a truly nostalgic classic from the N64 days. They added some artwork and tiny new details into some of the structures in the game. Pay attention to the walls on kakariko village and some other places. Although its a GREAT game, Idk if it was just me but it seems like Navi tends to repeat herself several times with irrelevant information now. For example, Im in the fire temple and she mentions atleast 6 times that if im lost or confused look for a shiekah stone to help guide me, but we all know they arent really located deep in the fire temple. And she continues to repeat that alot. But other than that oddity its awesome!

    I have yet to play through the entire game, but am completely satisfied with it. Every minute is packed with excrutiating detail and exquisite graphics, the characters and environment beautifully rendered in 3D. Never before have I experienced a game so masterfully depicted or story so artfully told. Though I am somewhat of a wuss (I can't take the giant spiders and the creepy graveyard music), I love the Zelda games, admittingly for their other, more endearing aspects. The story, characters, mission, action, adventure, and freedom that each game of this series give to the user are why I find such joy in playing them. Ocarina of Time, in keeping to the legacy of the Legend of Zelda line, does not disappoint.
