The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

released on Nov 21, 1998

A 3D reimagining of the core premise of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1991), Ocarina of Time follows Link, the protagonist, as he picks up a sword and leaves behind his humble origins in order to trek across the land of Hyrule, venture into its treacherous dungeons and travel through time itself to fulfill his destiny as the Hero of Time by defeating his enemy Ganondorf and ridding Hyrule of evil.

This game holds up remarkably well. To me, OoT is timeless. The only real problem is the way boots are handled, which makes the Water Temple take a little too long. Aside from that, it is nearly perfect.


The expertly crafted dungeons are the highlights alongside the soundtrack and narrative, but the combat is slightly boring and 20FPS is pretty low these days.


Couldn't really get into it, felt like I should of really enjoyed it based on how the majority of people feel about this game. Unfortunately, it just couldn't hook me.

It was the first 3D Zelda and had a couple of early 3D game issues such as terrible camera and not so good targeting system. The story at the start, I played about 2 hours so didn't really get far enough to get a great detail of it, but it just wasn't enough to hook me. I don't know if voice acting would of resolved that or not, but without it just could not textually hook me in.

Would I recommend people try this? Of course, the overwhelming majority of people seem to really enjoy this game. I definitely fall into a minority that couldn't get into it. So for that reason alone, you should try it. You probably will like it.
