Return to the world of Hyrule in the fifth game of the Legend of Zelda series. Released in 1998, this game
had been in production for many years, and quickly sold more than a million copies in the US alone. Taking full advantage
of the Nintendo 64's graphical abilities, combined with the famous gameplay of past Zelda games, this is most a title that
anyone, RPG fan or not, will not want to miss.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is without question the greatest
videogame ever. Zelda: Ocarina of Time has 9 dungeons, numerous places to explore, as well as several mini games that
reward you with a piece of heart or some other item needed to complete your quest. Hyrule in Zelda: Ocarina of Time is very
large, and the graphics are as good if not better than those of any other Nintendo 64 game. The dungeons are equally detailed
with challenges in almost every room. The difficulty level of the game is good. The game is not too hard, but it's not so
easy that you will beat it in just a few days without some kind of strategy guide.
The controls of the game are great. When you hit a button, Link immediately
responds to it, there's never the case of hitting a button and getting killed because Link didn't respond fast enough.
Another new feature to the game is Z-Targeting, which allows you to press the Z-button and lock onto a character in the game,
keeping them in constant view. Z-Targeting is especially useful during battles and should be incorporated into other
Nintendo 64 games. Another nice tough is that if you have a rumble pack, when you hit a wall or tree with your sword, you
will feel it, and when you ride Epona, you will feel every footstep the horse takes.
In Zelda: Ocarina of Time, it is almost impossible to get bored. If
you don't feel like looking for the next dungeon, you can always hunt for Gold Skulltulas, and by defeating these Gold Skulltulas,
you can get rewarded at the House of Skulltula with either special items or the ability to carry more rupees. You can also
play the numerous mini games that you find in the towns. Usually playing these and winning rewards you with a piece of heart.
Other things to do are sell the masks that the mask shop carries, trade a series of items so that eventually you will obtain
Biggoron's Sword, just explore the land of Hyrule, or even spend time playing the Fishing Game. This is the most fun mini
game in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If you have a rumble pack you can feel the fish biting your line, and if you catch a fish
large enough, you can get a piece of heart or the gold scale.
The bosses of the dungeons in Zelda: Ocarina of Time are great. They
are large, very detailed, and each requires a special strategy in order to be defeated, such as Volgagia, who can be defeated
by being hit in the head with the Megaton Hammer when he pops out of a hole in the ground. None of the bosses
are overly difficult, but at least the first time through the game, none of them are extremely easy either.
The only major improvement that can be made to Zelda: Ocarina of Time
is that aside from the dungeons, there weren't very many enemies. While exploring Hyrule, the only enemies ever encountered
during the daytime are a few Peahats, and an occasional Octorok or Tektike. At night, all there is to fight are those annoying
skeletons. Inside the dungeons, however, there are enemies in nearly every room. Sometimes defeating every enemy in
a room will give you a key or a treasure chest will appear with an important item in it. Although there could be more
enemies in the dungeons, the enemies present provide at least some challenge.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in unquestionably the best videogame ever. The
other games that have been called great (Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII) are great games, but are not even close to Zelda.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time combines graphics, music, sound effects, play control, and storyline like no previous
game has. It appears that the only game that can possibly top Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the upcoming game, Zelda, majoras
mask (or mask of Mujula, also for N64.
