Game Description & Reviews:
Three days...only three days before death comes to destroy the land of Termina. That Skull Kid is up to no good. He has stolen the most dangerous mask in the world. Majora's Mask. He floats up above the clock tower in North Clock Town and waits for the night of the third day before deciding to destroy Termina with the summoned moon. Play as Link in this epic sequel to Ocarina of Time and explore new lands and temples. Fight tougher bosses. Grab the magical masks to transform into new things. Deku, Goron, Zora, and the most powerful of them all, Fierce Diety Link. Save the people of Clock Town as you defeat the temple bosses and unleash the Guardian Gods to help defeat Skull Kid and save the land of Termina! Get helpful tips from a new fairy, Tatl. This is not your average Zelda game, this game contains fear, depression, and a deadlier fate than Ganon. And the moon isn't an average moon, it has a face. A face filled with evil. As you travel the land of Termina there are many tasks you can complete to get new masks to upgrade your powers, including the Bunny Hood (which I hope we remember from the Super Smash Bros. series). Majora's Mask is an amazing game and I promise you that you will LOVE it.
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.
A darker feel than Ocarina of Time, and a little more challenging. The best part about this title is that even after you've finished the initial quest there is still pleanty more to do.Unlike any previous Zelda game you don't have to much time to waste, roughly speaking each hour in the game time is about two minutes real time so that means there are 72 minutes until impending doom. but don't let the time limit scare you because honestly after the first dugeon the flow of time becomes very little imortance to the avarage player. Of course if you're haveing problems with time you could always use the ocarina to get more.r
There are two hidden songs that can be played at any point in the game, but are never displayed
The Song of Doubled Time (jump ahead 12 hours)
The Song of Inverted time (reduce the flow of time)
This is my all time favorite game. It takes place in parallel universe to Hyrule, called Termina. It's up to you, Link, to save this world in peril.
I absolutely loved this addition to the Legend of Zelda series. The unorthodox style of the game gave a unique game experience. I remember having such a challenge with the time limit and having to start over every half hour, having to find ways to do everything in that time. Although it doesn't really follow any real continuance into the series, if you think about it, it tells what happened to Link. In Windwaker, it says that the hero disappeared and never returned. In Majora's Mask, it said that he never returned to Hyrule. I love this game.
To be honest, i like this better than ocarina of time. I mean, ocarina of time still does get 5/5 but something about majora's mask just makes me prefer playing it.
Maybe it's that majora's mask has more game time (If your collecting masks, which i recommend as each mask does interesting things) or that it's more challenging, i don't know but i pretty much find this better than ocarina of time.
I love the fact that the 3 main masks gives you pretty much different characters. There's loads of different extra's and dungeons which can only be completed with the masks giving you more to do and find.
The only little problem i have with it is the song you have to play when time starts running out (you only have 3 days before...just play the game) and when the song is played, it takes you all the way back to town which could be annoying if you were somewhere far or took hassle to get to. Also your collected rupees will go as well as collected arrows or bombs (the ability to collect bombs and arows won't go, just how much you've collected). You can actually put your rupees in a safe located in the main town and collect them again when the song plays (which doesn't make sense since if you rewind time, you'll reverse collecting rupees :S anyway...).
But anyway, this game is challenging but rewarding. There's a lot you can do even when quest is finished, plus there's a special mask which will make you want to play the game and bosses again ;)
Thanks for reading =D
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
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.
Ocarina of time sequel, but tottaly diferent. You will have three days to save Hyrule! Fortunantelly link can go back to the first day, but some actions youīve done will disapear.
In this game Link will use masks to obtain powers, or just to use because you like it.
Itīs a great game, even if you havenīt like ocarina of time, if you do, probably will like this one to.
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.
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, 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.
I remember playing this game along time ago!
The point to this story besides the the "Main Quest"
was to figure out poeples scedules and wear cool-looking masks! Lengthly just like any othe Zeldas.
Give it a try! I know you will like it!
While everyone knows about the greatness of Ocarina of Time, fewer people know just how amazing Majora's Mask is. In your quest to save Termina from destruction, you travel through a variety of terrains using Masks and items to pass through obstacles. The most interesting feature is that you time travel back to Day 1 of 3 to save the game, which you'll be doing a lot. With a great soundtrack, graphics that take advantage of the N64's Expansion Pak, and a story that keeps you going, Majora's Mask is a definite classic.
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 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.
