    There is no masking this one; it is, to mince no more words, a wonder.
  2. Majora's Mask is, withouht a doubt, a magnum opus of epic proportions. It may not be as great as "Ocarina of Time," but it gets as close as it possibly can. One of Nintendo's greatest.
  3. Where Majora rises to the top is its concept – three days to save the world. The execution of the idea is flawless: time means everything and the player always has to be aware. The save system is absolutely perfect, letting players feel comfortable in controlling time but still keeping them on the edge of their seats when things get hairy.
  4. It drew me into the world of Clock Town unlike any game I've played before, including "Ocarina." This could be the last truly legendary title for the Nintendo 64.
  5. The storyline to Majora’s Mask is far superior to that of the first game and besides the camera and the occasional annoyance created by the advance of time, the puzzles, quests, objects and characters that you meet in this game make it a more than worthy sequel.
  6. CNET Gamecenter

    Stunning, optimized graphics; immersive, rich sound; refined, complex, and deep gameplay; and a mature, gripping plot make it a game that you won't want to miss.
  7. Some will appreciate the game's differences, while others will find the game's focus on minigames and side quests tedious and slightly out of place.

    One cannot help but compare Majora's Mask to Ocarina of Time as it is a direct sequel. Naturally, this was extremely hard to live up to andOne cannot help but compare Majora's Mask to Ocarina of Time as it is a direct sequel. Naturally, this was extremely hard to live up to and that is the most likely reason for the more negative opinion. Personally I found the game absolutely brilliant. As a sequel to Ocarina of Time it took the basic features of it and enhanced and twisted them into a darker and more perilous setting - Termina. Right from the beginning we can see that the game is darker, with the enigmatic travelling mask salesman and the mystery surrounding Majora's Mask. The whole mask concept is really what makes the game stand out, adding a multitude of side quests and new gameplay as well as making the game feel a lot more dark and mysterious. As many other reviews have said, the game was hard but for me that' part of what made it so great - the increased difficulty not only adds to the challenge but makes the game feel more dark and twisted when compared with Ocarina of Time. Overall I just feel that Majora's Mask captured the feel of Ocarina of Time and put a unique take on it making the game feel very fresh and just plain awesome. Expand

    Awesome! I love this game more than Orcarina. Not only do you get A LOT of masks to play around with, but you also get to control time with Awesome! I love this game more than Orcarina. Not only do you get A LOT of masks to play around with, but you also get to control time with your orcarina. Which by the way needs to make a comeback! Buy it on the Virtual Concole for the Wii.

    No soy nada fan de la saga Zelda, pero este juego tiene algo especial que me atrae más que los otros.
    Ocarina of Time sera toda la obra
    No soy nada fan de la saga Zelda, pero este juego tiene algo especial que me atrae más que los otros.
    Ocarina of Time sera toda la obra maestra que quieras, pero Majora's Mask me parece muchísimo más redondo. El sistema agobiante del tiempo, los temas que se tratan en el videojuego, todos los misterios que circulan al rededor de este titulo, hacen que sea el Zelda en el que más tiempo he invertido.
    La jugabilidad es la misma que la de Ocarina Of Time así que no tengo mucho que decir al respecto.
    La banda sonora es excepcional, sobre todo cuando se acerca el Ultimo Día...
    Para mí una autentica Obra Maestra y sobre todo más compacto y perfecto que su anterior titulo. Seas o no fan de Zelda, debes jugarlo.
