How to Play this Game ?
Game Description & Reviews:
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.
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
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)
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.
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.
