In terms of the N64, a great game, but in terms of the Zelda series in general, just average. Compared to other titles, this seemed almost generic for the series. Even so, it's still a solid game and fans of the series will still be satisfied.

A quality game for the 64. Some say this is the best game on the system. I disagree. It is a great 3D platformer and improves a lot over Mario, but Mario is still so much more fun and the replay value is much higher. I think the main difference is the world that Mario plays in and how simple it is.

Yeah, I said it: Episode VIII

In case you haven’t heard, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is pretty big deal. You wouldn’t have to spend much time at all searching the internet to find everything from major gaming websites to some lone blogger who knocked out a “Best Games of All Time” list that featured Ocarina of Time somewhere in the top 10. Both 1up and IGN have examples of such lists. The game’s Metacritic rating is a 99, which may be good for the highest rating on the site. GameRankings.com actually DOES have it as their highest rated game of all time, at a 97.48.

So, let’s take a look back at what makes this game so highly regarded.

The big question going in was whether or not the spirit and flow of the franchise would survive the move from 2D to 3D. Super Mario 64 had, no doubt, alleviated some ...

One of the best games of all time

This is one of the first games I ever played and it was unforgettable. I really love this game. No matter how many times I play, it doesn't get old. There are so many different things to do and find, which keeps the gameplay fresh and interesting. The characters fit their roles perfectly as the hero, the villian, and the damsel in distrees (although their is a nice twist wuth Zelda's character). Not to mention the music is really catchy and well done. The Gerudo Valley theme is probably my favorite video game song. I just can't wait to get the 3DS version so that I can play it on the go. This game is considered one of the best games of all time on many different lists, and I would have to agree. I recommend this game to anyone who loves puzzle adventure games or just games in general.

N64 Never Looked So Good

Ocarina of Time took everything the Nintendo 64 had to offer and pushed it even a little more. There is upside to everything about this game. The graphics, music, game play, and story are all top notch. Including traveling through time so you could play as young link and adult link was a great addition.

The 3D game play did give Zelda a different feel than the original 2D games, but I wouldn't call it negative. The dungeons, items, and puzzles kept to the Zelda theme and it kept me interested till the end.

This is probably the best Zelda game made.
