When Nintendo announced that they were going to completely rebuild The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the 3DS, I was a little bit worried because I truly didn't believe the 3DS was powerful enough to put that much information on the screen at one time with no lag.
I was completely and utterly wrong when I thought this. Its hard to describe this game without saying "Wow", "Beautiful" or "Brilliant", and that's before you turn the 3D effect on. But when you do turn it on, (especially for the cut-scenes) it brings the game to life. So much so, that some points in the game I actually wanted to reach out and pick up something through the screen. If you have played the original on the N64, you'd appreciate the better graphics the most.
But other than the better look, they didn't really mess with the game that much. Everything in the original game was put in the new one. One of the additions that your going to notice the most is the inventory system. Everything is very easy to access with a few taps on the touch screen. There are 4 slots that you can put your items in, two are designated to a button (x and y) and the other two work just like hotkeys.
Also, they added a gyro system for the Hookshot, Bow and Arrows, and Slingshot. So instead of moving them around with the C-pad, you can move the 3ds itself. I found it rather helpful in some areas, but i do recommend turning down/off the 3d effect while doing this, it will mess with your eyes a lil bit.
Add all of this together with the Master Quest, which is pretty much a second game all by itself, and the Boss Challenges and you get "Wow what a Beautiful game, everything about this is Brilliant". Great Job Nintendo. I can't wait to see a completely new Legend of Zelda for the 3ds, especially if it looks and plays as well as this!
