  1. Nothing but pure 100% fun, challenging, and lengthy.
  2. [Review Score = 110] What's significant about this convergence of audio, graphics and gameplay is that you are COMPLETELY IMMERSED in Zelda's world. Why? Because everything is meticulously thought out. Each character and event plays a role in a storyline that sprawls like a J.R. Tolkien masterpiece...It's certainly the game of the decade.
  3. 100
    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.
  4. 10 / 10 / 10 / 10 - platinum [first ever perfect score]
  5. High praise goes to them for also managing to fit joy, creativity and discovery into the game and doing so without the use of Full-Motion Video (FMV) and the CD soundtrack his critics said was needed. This game is simply the most complete experience of any game ever made making Ocarina Of Time the game I've always dreamed of playing.
  6. 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.
  7. Realism is one of the major reasons this title is so amazing. After playing for a while it feels as though you have actually been to Hyrule.

    Anyone who gives the masterpiece below a 7 or an 8 is either just here to hate on the astounding zelda franchise, doesn't know a DAMN goodAnyone who gives the masterpiece below a 7 or an 8 is either just here to hate on the astounding zelda franchise, doesn't know a DAMN good game or is insane. The dungeons are interesting and unique, the characters are interesting and have personality, the story is highly engaging, the combat is varied, fluid, and fun, the items are amazing, there are a plethora of interesting side quests and collectibles, and considering the fact that this game was made in 1998 the graphics are amazing. The only real downside is that the game is somewhat linear and you can't continue on after beating the final boss, but that doesn't detract from the huge amount of fun I had playing this game. This has to be one of if not the best games ever made just as the others have said. Expand

    Cat F., if they changed the plot and characters and towns and such... well, look at what crap Majora's Mask was. I can't argue with Cat F., if they changed the plot and characters and towns and such... well, look at what crap Majora's Mask was. I can't argue with you on your level of entertainment. That's YOUR opionion. I can't change it. But I think OoT is a true Zelda game. Expand
