The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Michael Wells The most obvious question about Zelda for those who have not yet played it and maybe even some that have is, Does it live up to the hype? In a word, yes. I have played this game for about 15 hours so far. With that time under my belt I can safely say that this is the greatest game of all time, I cannot say that enough people, greatest game of all time! What makes it so great you ask? Well for one thing, it is not like Mario 64 or Banjo-Kazooie in the sense that you do not just walk around an assortment of levels collecting stars or jiggys. In this game you have to actually think, I characterize this game as more of an adventure game than an action game. it's actually pretty non linear in a linear sense. What that means is even though you have to accomplish certain things, not all of the time do you have to do it in a certain order. That makes for a very enjoyable experience.

Graphics 10 out of 10

The graphics on this puppy are crisp, clear, in a word perfect. The realism of this game is so intense you will have to wear special eyewear just so you don't fry your retinas. I especially like how the scenery changes from day to night, that kicks butt. Although I believe that graphics don't necessarily kill a game, it doesn't hurt to have them this good. To sum it up, these graphics rock!

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

The sound in this game is awesome, the ambient sounds are enough to make you cry out in delight. I like how the sounds change when the time changes. The music is great also, although when I play a game I don't really concentrate much on the music, you can't help but like the music in Zelda.

Game Challenge 10 out of 10

This game is not only immense fun, it is also challenging. Not so challenging that it is nearly impossible. Sometimes I find myself throwing the controller down in fury and switching off the machine, five minutes later I'll pick up the controller and try out an idea I have and boom it works. Then I'll think how ingenious it really was. This game excels at making you think, its not just action and adventure its also part puzzle. A good combination.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

When I play Zelda, I find myself starting at around Noon after a light lunch, then I find myself quitting at three in the morning. It's so addictive that I can't put it down, I do have to turn it off for meals but that is it. This grabs you from the start screen and holds on tight until you finally have to turn it off (albeit for an hour at the most ;) There is so much to do in this game that you could explore for hours and not be the least bit bored.


The game does frustrate you I admit it, but the frustration doesn't last long. You might get stuck and get mad, but a few seconds later you will be back at it. That is the best kind of frustration heheheh.

Game Value 10 out of 10

I would pay anything for this game, within reason of course. The price on this game is definitely reasonable. The game is worth that and more. Nuff said? Thought so.

Overall 10 out of 10

In conclusion, everyone should own this game. Period. This game is one for the ages, it should be a proud part of any gamers collection. If you must try before you buy go ahead, but be prepared to go out the next day and buy the game. You won't be disappointed, this game is for all ages, so you parents out there should have no complaints. Maybe except for the lack of sleep they will be getting.
