    To my immense surprise, I haven’t fallen for a Zelda game like this since I played the The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1991). Evidence of master craftsmanship is everywhere in this game. By the time you’re flipping a temple upside down then right side up, you may discover that your imagination has been enlarged.

    After years of petitioning we have our Majora’s Mask remake, and it’s absolutely worth the time.

    Purists will decry the changes made to Majora’s Mask no matter how slight they may be, but I am seated firmly in the “change is good” camp. It’s everything you remember, but without the boredom or frustration related to the passage of time.

    The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for the New Nintendo 3DS is a great remake, with many interesting changes from the original formula. Most of the new features work in a great way, offering a smooth and lovely gaming experience. Zora’s new swimming system is a little bit disappointing, clumsy and less fun than the original one. Both new players and fans of the original Nintendo 64 game should give this new Majora’s Mask the right amount of love.

    There's no better way to keep you busy till the release of Zelda Wii U at the end of the year than The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D. It's perfect from a technical point of view and time seems to have had no impact on this masterpiece.

    A great adaptation of one of the most loved Zelda of all times. 15 years have passed, but it's still a gorgeous game with a unique and uncanny atmosphere.

    Its relative ease makes redoing the challenges very pedestrian, and worse yet, replaying the same dungeon also means reliving all the pre-faffing-about to get there. You have to endure many of the same conversations, cutscenes and menial tasks you already know of and know how to do. Regardless of what decade you played it in, that is not fun.

The game has been polished up and some things have been moved here and there for a quality of life change and I love it. Now, the camera is still a major problem in the game and the difficulty of the game was made even a little bit easier than the original and the original was already fairly easy. But that doesn't do anything to lower its score in my book. This was a top 3 game on the N64 when it came out back in 2000 and the remake did nothing to change my mind. It's a great nostalgia trip and one I can't recommend enough. Expand

For many, including myself, it is easy to misunderstand the heart of this gem. Thankfully Nintendo saw fit to re-release this on the 3DS; new features and new graphics.

    It's not a perfect recreation as some things are changed and, as stated before, new features was added. Chief among them is save points and a new brand new Ocarina song, "The Song of Soaring" which allows you to transport to any save spot you activated in the world. Also some items you will get much earlier in game (ie, The Bombers notebook).

    While the presentation is top notch, it would have been nice for Nintendo to place a mode for a original N64 mode. Past that issue it is a solid remake and well worth a buy from anyone looking for a intelligent adventure game.

    One of the most overrated and overhyped Zelda games of all time. Hipster trash.

    This game was a Nintendo experiment to find out how little they can invest in making a new "AAA" game and getting away with it. On the N64 it just recycled and re-arranged all the assets of Ocarina of time, with minor additions/alterations. They didn't want to waste time making new levels, so they introduced a ton of backtracking and justified it with a "turn back time" gimmick. They padded a very small game to last for many boring and frustrating hours. Then called it "innovation".

    Suprisingly, it failed back then. I say suprisingly, because Nintendo fans aren't known for being smart or having good taste in games, in general. After all, if they knew any better, they wouldn't have bought a N64 in the first place, for just 2-3 good games. Still, it was so sh1t it failed and was forgotten.

    Then, as it always happens with hipsters and with the help of some manufactured hype after the Ocarina 3DS remake, somehow opinions that Majora's mask was an underrated gem surfaced. Counting on kids having never played the original back in the day, and adults having forgotten.

    And we got this, in the same way we got it on the N64: A recycled game from Ocarina of time 3DS. With some improvements to hide the fact that this game is a polished POS.

    Games like this are the equivalent of taking a turd, puting a ribbon on it, placing it on a museum and calling it "modern art". Hipsters should buy it 5x times in order to learn, the rest of us should play better games. Avoid.
