Game Description & Reviews:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
