Game Description & Reviews:
This game is an action packed game with mysterious incidents happening. Skull kid has worn Majaros mask being possessed by its power. Link arrives at Termina finding out that the skull kid is bringing down the moon in three days. Will link stop Skull kid?
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is perhaps one of the greatest works of art to ever come out of Nintendo's pockets. I say works of art because the game is still great to this day, better then Ocarina of Time in my opinion.
It's your typical Zelda gameplay: The mute protagonist Link, a large land to explore, vibrant characters to interact and quest with and a large overshadowing plot filled with many dark elements slipped in by Nintendo.
An excellent game that to this day stands as an example to modern gaming.
This game plays very similarly to Ocarina of Time, yet it adds a darker overture and a sense of urgency to the game.
While in Ocarina of time you could spend however much time you wanted in any of the dungeons, in Majora's Mask you are limited to 3 days in game time, or about 54 minutes, including travel. Though this can be sped up by the use of owl statues, similar to the songs related to specific temples in OoT.
The game also originally made use of the N64 "expansion pak" allowing for increased draw distance and real time rendering of building interiors.
Overall, the game was similar enough to OoT to be able to pick it up, but different enough to keep you interested in the story the whole way through.
Now for people who did not know this is actually the sequel after, "The Legend of Zelda, the Ocarinia of Time". What the story Left out was that Link turned back into a child and he left Hyrule to find other ways he can help people. Right from the start you will notice he has mor abilities, like the frontflip, while you are getting your Ocarinia back. Link gets trapped and ends up becoming a shrub and he wants to become human. Trying to turn back into a human you come across a man who , to true Zelda fans, should seem familiar for The Ocarinia of Time. And says tha if you find him the Major's Mask, he will turn you human. Well you tell him you have it and he turns you back and he asks for it. He finds out you don't. Well when you have your ocarinia back you have 3 days to save the world, sounds kind of hard right? Don't worry, using th ocarinia you can go back to the beginning of the first day, though every time you go back you lose the rupees you have. That is why Nintendo added a bank for you to use to store your money. As you scourage through the levels you find new masks to turn you into new creatures and you can use that to help you. With the new details, and hard work put into this by Nintendo. I give this game a...... 5/5
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.
