    The game honestly has value but aged pretty terribly. Anyone who says its fantastic just has the feeling of nostalgia when the played it as a kid. Me personally only played it once like a month ago. The only thing I liked in the game was the music, and even the music wasn't that good! Legend of Zelda is a thing of the past and people wont realize because it probably resembles your childhood or 2 years of your life. I think when people who like this game play it, they don't open their eyes and realize that the game is boring and lacks something. Expand

    I love legend of zelda, but this game almost killed it for me. First of all, NAVI IS SO ANNOYING, this fairy always says stupid things and states the obvious 100% of the time. Second, the intro to this game was horrendous, and the entire first act was annoying. Third, the over world and transportation was annoying. Fourth, the locking system was terrible.

    The second act was good, but
    the first act was so terrible that it ruined the entire experience for me. I don't understand how anyone thinks this game is a masterpiece. The only thing that is good about this game is the story. The overall experience is frustrating at times and some of the bosses are bad as well. I will definitely will NOT recommend this game to anyone. Expand

    Lots of Zelda fans claim Ocarina of Time is the best Zelda, if not the best game of all time, I strongly disagree, I played up until the Fire Temple and I just couldn't finish, the game itself was boring and the world ws empty, the only places that were there were places you needed to be for the main storyline, the game lacked in charm and felt dull and bland. My favorites in the series, (Twilight Princess and Windwaker) were much better, Ocarina of Time feels linear, the puzzles are easy, the temples are uncreative and the game just doesn’t pull me in and get me hokked on it like TP or WW, so to be honest, Ocatina of Time is really, really overated.

    I'm going to get so much hate but this is easily the most over rated game of all time. It is filled with flaws and does not deserve a 10/10 at all. Camera angle was annoying at times. Also this game is super linear it is a game about exploring and that is something you don't do. Also people say how beautiful the game is they are nostalgia blind it was good for its time but can't hold up today. For a more in depth Analysis of the game go check this guy on youtube named egoraptor. You need to watch his video if you are considering getting this game I wish I would've because i would've saved me 30$ because I did not find any joy out of this game. Saying it is FLAWLESS is ridiculous if you see someone who says that, that means that have not played this game in 20 years or ever. This game does have its charms like the music but the gameplay is glitchy and disengages you from the exploration. Traveling was annoying the story...... Well it is a legend of Zelda game what would expect it is boring. The very first legend of Zelda game is better since there is exploration and none of it is linear this game takes what makes a legend of Zelda game fun and gets rid of it. Rent this game or just avoid it. This review was made by a gamer who isn't driven by nostalgia like 90% of the people who say this game is a masterpiece because it is far from it. Expand

    This is, without a doubt, one of the all-time greatest games made. 50 years from now people will still be playing and enjoying this game... thoroughly.
  2. This Zelda adventure will undoubtedly withstand the test of time and take its place as one of the best games to ever grace a home system.
  3. My favorite game of all Time. It is the perfect example of a perfect and polished game. Every aspect of the game is virtually flawless.
