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.
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.
At its core Majora’s Mask 3D is still an amazing game, but it’s impossible to overlook some of the flaws brought about by the new changes. Some of these alterations clearly improve the experience, but others diminish what could have been a superb remake.
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.
Even though this game may be quite stressful due to the time mechanic (which was not really favorable for me, because I like to take my time enjoying the game and progressing), I think it makes up for that in terms of concept, art style, and soundtrack. Ocarina of Time meets Silent Hill kinda vibe.
My personal feelings aside, Majora's mask is a work of art and I hope others can appreciate it better than I did.
I picked up this game on release, played it for a while, felt the zora swimming, then cried.
This is majoras mask, and while i love this game and i have an overall good time with the remake, i just hate the small things they changed, like the bosses and the zora swimming. if you are going to play this version, please just play the N64 version. if you absolutely MUST play this version, Use progect restoration. While this remake isnt awful, and its certaintly more accessible, a lot of this games character is sanded off, so sadly i need to dock a few points.
My favorite Zelda game, however, only the n64 version, in this version they changed the game too much, all the bosses in the game are MUCH easier, with a strange eye (?) That makes it very easy to find out how to defeat him, in the n64 version I loved all the bosses, but in this version they disappointed me, besides having made the gameplay like Zora a lot worse, seriously, if you want to play Majoras Mask, play the original n64 version.
SummaryThe Skull Kid personifies the mischief and mystery of the Lost Woods, but a cursed mask has now morphed him into something exceedingly more terrifying. When he dupes Link into entering a land called Termina, the Hero of Time faces a pressing challenge in a strange, new land: stop the moon from ending the world in three days. Don't panic!...
