Absolutely Great Game

To start off this review, let me say that this game was the reason I wanted to get a 3DS. I absolutely love the Zelda series and Ocarina of Time is absolutely hands down my favorite Zelda game, and on my list of favorite games of all time. This remake on the 3DS does not disappoint, at all. When I first got this game it was about...1am so I only played it for about an hour. The next day, I played for about eight or nine hours, this game it just that good and that engrossing. Also, the 3D is very nice in this game. I don't usually play with the 3D on full for this game, but for me it's just not needed. I can still easily see the 3D effect and it looks amazing. Also, the remastered graphics are better than anybody, myself included, could have ever hoped for.

An overview:

Graphics: 10/10 Simply put these graphics are stunning. The 3D works perfectly and the graphics themselves, 3D or not, look amazing.

Story: 10/10 This game's story is great. Its deep, and it draws you in from moment one.

Gameplay: 8/10 Plays great. Gyroscopic aiming for weapons like the bow and the slingshot works very well, but 3D will blur up when you tilt the system to use the gyroscope.

Final comments: Rent this game or buy it asap. It is a must have, and I'm a person who rarely, if ever, calls a game a must have. I have had it for over a month, have beaten it repeatedly, and still play it today.

Final Score: 9/10

This is a fantastic game that is deserving a play of any Nintendo 3DS owner.

The 3D graphics are an amazing accomplishment and do this game such justice, showing off the incredible fully realized world and it just gets better with the new-and-improved graphics.

The gameplay is unchanged, and always, fantastic.

It is truly a legend among gamers and deserves nothing less than the full respect of any 3DS gamer!

One word can describe this game, wow.

This game brings me back to when I was very young playing a borrowed version of Ocarina the N64. Hearing the classic scores such as Saria's song in the lost woods took me back to a different time.

The 3D in this game is eye popping the only problem is that it can be a little much after a while.

The enemies, environment, Link, everything has been revamped in a higher resolution but maintains that "Classic" feel that the original had.

The sound effects are still all there and they catch your ear just like they used to.

Even though I haven't finished the game yet I know about Master Quest mode which sounds very interesting and I will be giving this a try.

A must have for any Legend of Zelda fan, and a absolute must have for any 3DS owner.

I wish I could shell out the money to buy this fantastic game.
