Game Description & Reviews:
This is an absolute BEAST of a game. Out of any n64 game ever released, this probably has the most content, thanks to the expansion pack.
The story begins as you ride on epona through an unnamed forest as a kid. 2 fairies, similar to Navi, come and start bothering you. They knock you off your horse and you pass out. A skull kid wearing a mysterious mask, later revealed to be Majora's mask, steals the Ocarina of Time and turns you into a Deku Scrub!
You have 3 days to complete a series of quests to turn yourself into normal Link.
It is revealed to you that Majora's mask has mysterious, dark power, and the world will end with the moon crashing down onto it if you don't do something, quick! Fortunately, your trusty ocarina has the power to turn back time and give yourself another 3 days.
Anyway, if you remember Ocarina of Time, there are only a handful of sidequests, and the main focus was put into the main quest. Not anymore. While there are only 4 dungeons compared to Ocarina's 9, there are infinitely more side quests, mainly based around masks. To put it into perspective, there are more masks then there are regular items, and each one has a different effect. The bunny ears increase your run speed dramatically, the bomb mask creates an explosion, and the stone mask basically makes you invisible to most enemies! Each mask has it's own side quest, which can take anywhere between 5 minutes to a couple hours to complete.
Once you've gathered all the masks, you get the fierce deity mask, transforming you into a demigod with massive power and the ability to shoot lasers from your sword, similar to older Zelda titles.
This game is definitely darker than any other Zelda title. As you play through the game, you can't help but feel a sense of foreboding, as if something terrible will happen. This is compounded by music that gets darker and darker each passing day. By the third and final day, the music is so dark, a feeling of dread washes over you. This is a very emotional game, and as you meet characters, make friends, and complete side quests, you actually feel like you HAVE to stop the end of the world.
I recommend this game to anyone.
Believe it or not I like this game more than OoT sorry to say but I think it's just more fun than it because of all the fun masks you can put on and collect and the REALLY long dungeons that are pretty hard to solve while getting all the fairies it's a good Roaming around collecting everything game and I really enjoy it, because they bumped up the graphics a bit since OoT.
The amazing sequel to Ocarina of Time! Here is Majora's Mask!
In the beginning of the game you are attacked by a kid named Skull Kid and his two fairies. You see them searching Link and as they search they find the Ocarina of Time. Skull Kid decides to check it out and see what it sounds like and Link becomes concious again and tries to grab the Ocarina of Time back from Skull Kid and he misses. Then Skull Kid gets on Link's horse and runs away and as you chase him you fall in a hole and find Skull Kid floating in the air. He then places a curse on Link that turns him into a Deku. As skull kid leaves, one of his fairies is still messing with Link and she gets left behind. You then start to move towards a clock tower that leads you into the land of Termina. Before you enter the city you are caught by the mask owner you saw back in Ocarina of Time and he tells you about how his mask was taken. You have to get to the top of the clock tower before the time runs out (you have about 60 minutes, 3 days in the game) and as you first encounter Skull Kid you will shoot bubbles at him. The bubble power is something you get from a Great Fairy in the beginning of the game. As Skull Kid is lying on the ground unconcious you take the Ocarina back and you play the Song of Time to go back into the past. You go back to the mask owner and he takes the curse off of you and he then asks about his mask. When you tell him you don't have it he gets mad. He then tells you about the mask and its secret powers. The mask is called Majora's Mask and it has strong powers and can take over the person who is wearing it.
Enough of the description, this is my review. This game is a perfect FIVE out of FIVE. I loved this game. It's the perfect sequel to Ocarina of Time and it could not, in any way, get any better. This is one of the best games in the world and it has an amazing storyline. The gameplay is VERY challenging and it has lots more things to do in it than Ocarina of Time did in its story. You are in a bigger town and you get to do lots of stuff. There are mini games you can play, more monsters to fight, and tougher bosses. There is a moon in the sky that has a pretty creepy face and as time runs out, it gets closer and when you get a game over, it is shown falling on the city of Termina. There are four giants you must summon to prevent this from happening and I think it is very challenging. You will love this game I guarentee it. Play it now!
This game, to be honest, was a disappointment.
I had absolutely loved the Ocarina of Time, and was so excited when it's sequel, Majora's Mask was released, thinking that the game would be quite similar. Boy was I wrong.
It did have similar features to the original, Ocarina of Time. The menu and button functions were all the same, as well as many of the items that you acquire in the first game. But the story of the game and your objectives are ENTIRELY different and the game play as well.
This game is quite a bit shorter than many of the other Zelda games. Your object is basically to retrieve these 4 masks then you confront the main enemy, the skull kid and Majora's Mask.
I also found the way time passed to be a bit annoying. Majora's Mask has a very unique feature of completing your quest within 3 days. These days can be repeated as many times as you find necessary by playing the song of time, but each time you start those 3 days over, most all of your progress is lost (treasures you received except for major items such as the bow or ocarina, people you talk to forget that you ever spoke to them, and including the main bosses that you defeat and the villages you rescue). The only ways to save the game are to either start the three days over, or to do a quick save feature.
I think this game wouldn't have been such a disappointment to me if I hadn't been expecting a true sequel to Ocarina of Time. Overall, it's a Zelda game, and all Zelda games are addicting and fun, but this one I found to be just a little over-hyped and a bit of a waste of time and energy.
Take a trip into a forgotten untold tale of Zelda. As Link ventures on a personal quest he comes across a town about to meet its doom with the moon about to crash into it. Link must save the town, but there's a catch. He only has three days. This time around, you will be able to use the abilities of masks and transform into different forms, such as the Deku, Goron and Zora. This game may be shorter than Ocarina of Time but is actually more challenging is a perfect addition to those of fans of the series. The ocarina comes back into play by using it for new things such as turning back time or playing a special tune. You will not be dissapointed with this game at all.
