The Nintendo 64 was revolutionary for the time, it did a lot of important things obviously. But nowadays, literally any game I play on it feels poorly designed now, they feel like products of the time. But the only two exceptions to this were this game and Majoras Mask. These games are damn timeless. How did they nail dungeon design first try? Every dungeon is fantastic, even the Water Temple is great if not flawed on original hardware due to the menuing (which this version fixes thank god). This remake basically just updates the graphics and adds quality of life features like motion controls and other nicities. Having a second map is also convenient. Other than that, it is virtually the same to the original, and thats fine by me since it's so fun! I didnt even care that the story didnt grab me, the design of this game is timeless. I would recommend this remake to almost anyone, enjoyed it when I was 12 and enjoyed it at age 22. Damn I'm old

good remake but i still prefer the original

Wonderfully designed game with a forever iconic soundtrack that is held back by issues that stem from this game ultimately being an N64 game at its core.

What a game.
What a beautiful, beautiful game.
I was hesitant at first, I'll admit. I wasn't sure this game could be as good as I'd heard it hyped up to be. But it was, and so much more.
As soon as you open up the game, you're greeted with a sombre melody playing as Epona gallops across the plains. You create your save file, and you meet the Great Deku Tree and Navi, and you set out on the adventure of a lifetime.
You can really tell the influence of this game nowadays. Targeting is so useful. Granted, there was no free camera movement, but Nintendo soon corrected that with Majora's Mask.
There is just so much to do. The main story takes you all over the map, from inside a giant fish to a torture dungeon to a statue. You can find helpful items like Biggoron's Sword or the Ice Arrows, that are completely unnecessary to the main quest.
This game is so impressive. I love every aspect of it.
Except the Water Temple. That bit sucks.

I played a lot of the original Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64 when I was a kid, so playing the 3D version years later felt magical.

Ocarina of Time was too difficult for 10 year old me, but when I finally picked it up again in 2021 I rediscovered one of the best games of all time. (Also the music slaps)
