Graphics 10 out of 10

Let me just say, that the graphics in this game are unsurpassed. From the rising sun in Hyrule field, to a certain castle where Link fulfills his destiny, The graphics are just plain beautiful. For example, just walk out in Hyrule field, and look into the distance, you will notice for miles, and miles, that there is no fog. Also, as you progress through the game, you will see many (I think) cool real-time cutscenes and well crafted characters, buildings, and dungeons.

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

Ah yes, the music, not necessary in every game but worth it for feel and the time that went into the game. As you might know, music takes up lots of space on a cart, CD, etc. So it's a good thing that the music in this game is excellent. It's also worth turning up the volume to listen to the music, sounds, ocarina tunes in surround sound! I haven't tried it myself but I've heard that it's very good. So don't worry, the music in this game is perfect according to this gamers ears, though some may not agree with me.

Game Challenge 10 out of 10

To tell the truth, the game is actually quite challenging. The puzzles in the dungeons are pretty hard sometimes, but not so much that you can't beat them. Eventually, you will beat the puzzles somehow but it's always worth giving a try. Anyway, the challenge is pretty good and is worth it for any gamer beginner to expert.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

Seriously, the game is actually quite fun and humorous at times. But, the first time I played it was kind of odd to enjoy but after about 20 minutes learning the controls it's hard to let go of that controller for hours just like all of the previous Zeldas. Returning to my subject, wandering around a village and talking to people alone is pretty cool cause they're so big to explore and very interactive. But there is nothing more satisfying then giving the final blow to a gigantic boss with your sword (In my opinion).

Rumble Pak 9.5 out of 10

The rumble pack goes to new heights in Zelda 64. Mostly cause while you're using it, there is actually another use for the rumble pack rather then getting hit. What's cool is that the rumble pack will rumble when you get to a secret area of some sort (Like a Hidden rock or hole). It may not sound like much, but it's actually quite useful for finding lots and I mean LOTS of secrets. Another unique use for the rumble pack is when you go fishing at the fishing pond at Lake Hylia. Say, when a fish bites your hook it will start to rumble, but if it starts to rumble like crazy then you should be more gentle cause the fish is getting more aggressive and you have a bigger tendency to lose the fish. Guess what's after this.


Yep yep yep... Frustration, well, there's only one frustration that I truly have, and that's the difficulty of some of the dungeons. Yes, you do eventually get through them but sometimes they are a little too hard for my taste.

Replayability 9.0 out of 10

The Replayability of this game is pretty good, but just one problem I had. The game in my opinion was a little too short, sure it was hard but I kind of want a little or a couple more dungeons. Aside from the shortness of the game, it has lots of life left in it mostly cause of the mini games, secrets, and the fishing pond. Like any game that has a limit it comes to a end but the three things I mentioned should keep ya busy for a while.

Game Value 10 out of 10

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is worth is every cent and should not be passed along. The game is a treasure and a true gem that will be remembered for years to come. Rent if you want to, but if you want the true experience you got to buy this wonderfully crafted game!
