    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.

While some may think Ocarina of Time is better than Majora's Mask, it really doesn't matter because both games are fantastic! Get and enjoy both! This game looks and feels great with my "NEW" Nintendo 3DS XL. Highly recommended, a masterpiece! 10/10 Well done again, Nintendo! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. i recently got back into the legend of Zelda series through the glory that is emulation, my most recent one was Majora's Mask for the N64 but i ran into issues with the pictobox and decided to just buy the remake instead and so far i am in love with the 3ds variant more, there was so many quality of life changes i just adore like how you can just get the bombers notebook from the mask salesman and you can get the song of soaring from the swamp almost instantly from finishing the tutorial. the sing of double time allows you to pick specific points of time so it's a lot more user friendly and results in less waiting in place. my only issue I've encountered so far is the Deku scrub ,movement. i enjoyed being able to YEET myself at the speed of light and it feels very stilted, but other than that i'm glad i finally bought this game and can't wait to 100% it.

    Very good remake, while there were some small annoying things that weren't in the original version, this version is still what I call the bestVery good remake, while there were some small annoying things that weren't in the original version, this version is still what I call the best version, mainly because of the completion aspect, if you like completing games, this game is amazing, the updated bomber's notebook makes this game extremely satisfying to complete, and a lot of the sidequests have been made nicer because of the updated Song of Double Time and Save system, overall amazing game if you like to complete games, otherwise it's not absolutely amazing but still a very good game.

    Not at all a bad remake. I know it's pretty easy to say otherwise, but I do think that this is a pretty alright game. While the original gameNot at all a bad remake. I know it's pretty easy to say otherwise, but I do think that this is a pretty alright game. While the original game is of course a whole lot better and more played than this remake, This 3D remake does improve a lot of visuals, as you may expect from this remake, especially since this came out 15 years after it's predecessor. The game for me does kinda drop after the second half. A lot of the really good mechanics from the original game were removed and made the game a bit more harder and a bit less fun. Although I am not very sure if it was intended in any way, or what. Overall, this is a pretty solid remake, although the original will still be played a whole lot more by me. Expand

    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.
