  • Summary: Link must save the world! This time, he finds himself trapped in Termina, an alternate version of Hyrule that is doomed to destruction in just three short days. Link must race to recover the Ocarina of Time (which allows him to manipulate time in multiple ways), defeat challenging bosses in dungeons spread across Termina, and discover the key to the mystery of Majora's Mask. Along the way he'll obtain new weapons and items and help other characters (some strangely familiar) in their everyday lives. In addition, Link must utilize a wide assortment of masks scattered throughout Termina, each with its own specific use or power. Never before has three days offered so much in the way of action, mind-boggling puzzles, and depth--The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is an adventure unlike any other! Expand

    Majora's Mask is one of the greatest games of all time, and thanks to the Wii virtual console new gamers can experience it and old gamers can play it again! It's a steal at only 10 USD, and well worth every penny for the hours of fun you'll have exploring the complex and exciting world of Termina! Expand

    Majora's Mask is a criminally underrated game for several reasons. Often mistakenly criticized for being too short, having a poor save system, and in bizarre cases, being too difficult, it would appear to be the weakest title in the series. However, if you play through the game only once just to beat all the dungeons, then I'm afraid you're playing it wrong. Unlike Ocarina of Time, the story is not spoon-fed to the player, leaving it up to you to discover all the game's secrets on your own, and with the ability to reset the timeline at will, you have all the time you'll ever need to figure it all out. The world of Termina is arguably one of the most well developed, living game worlds ever made (from the N64 era no less). Of the three days allotted, you will see that everyone gets around; they have things to do, and people to see. Not only that, you can affect the outcome of situations differently every time you play. This can be accomplished by interacting with a character at the right place, at the right time, or simply talking to someone and saying the right thing. In extreme cases, it's not who you are, but what, that makes the difference. The transformation masks add yet another layer of complexity to an already fantastic experience. As if that wasn't revolutionary enough, the game rewards you for helping resolve the problems of the people. Some problems are more difficult and complex than others, but they are story arcs all on their own. Once you help everyone, as well as collect all the masks, you can unlock the true ending. Some people claim that the true ending is ridiculously easy once you unlock the Fierce Deity mask, but they never really ask themselves why. That's part of the mystery. The answer is in the game, you just have to find it. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is much deeper than any game other in the series, more than deserving of a second look.

    Because I didn't address it anywhere else, my counter against complaints on the save system in MM is that you can save any time you want by playing the Song of Time. The owl statues are nice, but they aren't required for saving the game.

    What I really love about Majora's Mask is the story. There is so much depth, darkness and maturity to it that you really don't see any of the other games, not to mention this is probably the most challenging of all the other games of the franchise due to the limited time to do things before the moon crashes and the bosses were more difficult then your normal bosses buy'n large. Also the music is awesome! Expand

    As an art form, video games bring something new to the table: game play. As opposed to movies, books or other types of art, you are merely a spectator, however with video games, you get a direct involvement that is incapable in other forms. Perhaps the best example of this involvement is Zelda: Majora's Mask. The game has two different aspects that make it unique from not only other zeldas but other video games. The three day aspect: you continuously play the same three days over and over, as well as the mask aspect: you can don masks that either have specific jobs or transform you into the soul of someone who comes from the world that you inhabit. In the game, you play as not only "Link" the main character, but inhabit a Deku Scrub, a Goron, and a Zora. With the Deku, you enter into an established role in a world that unfamiliar to you. Deku scrubs are obviously second class citizens. You can't go in some buildings, you can't join clubs and you are generally treated like dirt. Its different with the other two. The goron is a hero of his people and when you become him, you take on the cares and problems of his people. With the zora its similar, you need are part of a band and take on some of the problems of the zora people. The involvement in this story is what makes this game so great. Through experiencing the various people's lives in this game you experience what gives the game its amazing personality. You see the ups and downs and are compelled to change the things that are bad. Theres so much more in this game to talk about: the ever present Moon that hangs above head, with a constantly sad look on its face, the beautiful and sad stories that are constantly appearing in the game, the games villain, The Skull Kid, who's only crime was looking for new friends. Its a hard game that is so wonderfully artful and amazing. It will remind you why video games are an art form worth fighting for. Expand

    Best game of the series. Great environments, mask powers add a new depth to gameplay. Boss fights are very innovative and interesting in comparison to others. Overall story is deeper than the usual blandness of the other games. My personal favorite of the series. Only thing that could be worked on was the poor save system with the owls. Expand

    A complete travesty of gaming. How this series has continued to garner acclaim for so long is beyond me when it hasn't had an original idea since its creation. If you really want to play the same game from the NES days that you most likely played on your SNES, N64, and Gamecube, you might as well play this one as well because you are obviously a tool. Of particular note is the graphics, which will get a pass from the mindless "gameplay > graphics graphics don't matter yet these are so amazing for arbitrary reasons" crowd when the sheer awfulness of the so-called 'art style', awful textures, and N64-era draw distance will do their best to remind you that you really are playing a game from a past era. And the era before that. And the era before that, too. Soon there will be nothing left to rehash and the game will start to be released under the exact same name on the future Nintendo Googoo and Nintendo Lovecarefriendship. Expand
