Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Reviewed by Matt
When The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time came out for the Nintendo 64,
Zelda fans everywhere were amazed at the brilliant graphics and the
wonderful worlds put together by the people at Nintendo. Now, the
semi-sequel to Ocarina of Time is out, and is more challenging, and
more unique then ever!
Graphics: 10 out of 10
The Graphics in this game are stunning! Nothing compares to it! In each
character that Link portrays, he is put in miraculous graphics. The people
all have unique faces. The action never seems to slow the game down.
Music and Sound: 9 out of 10
If you have a surround sound system hooked up to your TV, make sure
that you use the surround sound option in this game. When there is some
comotion going on to the left, you'll here it in the left speaker, and it makes
for a spellbinding experience. The sound is great in this game. It gets a 9
out of 10 instead of a 10 out of 10 because, and only because, most of the
sounds are exactly like those of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is understandable.
Game Challenge: 9 out of 10
This game is very challenging. But some of the obstacles are too obvious,
and they tend to tell you everything when you talk to people. When they
highlight words in Red that means that that word or phrase is very
important in the game. This tells you to go do something, and from
there, the game is not so difficult. But, doing the task at hand can be
VERY difficult at times. The first set of bosses are not so hard because
your fairy will tell you how to defeat them without too much of a
challenge. Not everyone will find this game very difficult, but some
might. So the game is very different according to who is playing.
Game Play-Fun: 10 out of 10
In this game, you want to keep coming back for more! You can't wait to
see what happens next. It's fun figuring out everything on your own. And
since the story is different then trying to save Princess Zelda like in all
the other Nintendo Zelda games, it makes for a different, and unique experience.
Uniqueness: 10 out of 10
I'm not sure if uniqueness is a word, but if it's not, then I made it one
just for this game, because the story behind it is so unique. You are Link,
and this is after your victory at Hyrule. And now, you're in Termania. And
the Skull Kid is up to no good, and possessing evil into four dungeons. You
must complete each of these dungeons, and go back to clock town and defeat
Skull Kid. Sounds easy doesn't it. But there's one catch. The moon is going to
fall in 3 days. Sure, no big deal, right? WRONG!! It's not 3 real days, it's 3 of
their days and it's actually like 2 hours. But, as soon as you get your Ocarina
back, then you will be able to travel back into time to the first day. Now that
you know this, it once again seems easy, once again, your wrong. Because each
of the people that you have met, never remember meeting you, except for the
banker at West Clock Town. And when you travel back, you still get to keep all
your items and all your masks so don't worry. But, you can only do or get certain
things on certain days or at certain times so be on the look out for anything.
Overall: 10 out of 10
All I can say is what a great game. I basically summed it all up in that last
category, but what a great game. It's not just a semi-sequel to ocarina of
time, but a whole new experience. Enjoy.
