The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64

A young boy named Link was raised in the village of the elf-like Kokiri people. One day a fairy named Navi introduces him to the village's guardian, the Great Deku Tree. It appears that a mysterious man has cursed the tree, and Link is sent to the Hyrule Castle to find out more. Princess Zelda tells Link that Ganondorf, the leader of the Gerudo tribe, seeks to obtain the Triforce, a holy relic that grants immense power to the one who possesses it. Link must do everything in his power to obtain the Triforce before Ganondorf does, and save Hyrule.

Ocarina of Time is the first 3D installment of the Legend of Zelda series. Like most of its predecessors, it is an action game with puzzle-solving and light role-playing elements. Basic gameplay system is similar to the previous games, allowing Link to explore the world and complete dungeons to obtain key items and advance the plot. Sword combat as well as many familiar items such as boomerang, bombs, the series' currency (rupees) of various values, heart containers and their collectible fragments permanently increasing Link's health, etc., return in this installment. Link can now lock on enemies for melee and ranged combat, actively use a shield to deflect projectiles, as well as use various magic items. Dungeon exploration is somewhat more puzzle-oriented than in earlier games. Link can climb certain surfaces, dive underwater, as well as automatically jump.

The game begins with the player controlling the child Link, but later on an adult Link becomes a playable character as well. Each of them has certain unique abilities: for example, only adult Link can use bow and arrows, but only the child Link can crawl through narrow spaces. During the course of the game the player obtains the Ocarina of Time. Learning and playing melodies on that ocarina is needed to advance the plot, complete certain side quests, or travel in time, switching between the two versions of Link. It is also possible to befriend and ride a horse named Epona to facilitate travel between areas.

I love this game.

Except for the annoying boots-switching in the Water Temple, it's pretty much flawless.

I see a lot of people complain about the boots in the water temple, personally I don't mind it. People also say it's overrated but its amazing.

It's good. But it ain't perfect.

Damn you Water Temple! XD

One of the best for N64, but Majora's Mask was better .

piece of shit game.

Tedious. The whole thing is tedious. Waiting for the enemy to lower their guard so you cut quarter their health? Tedious. Backflipping across Hyrule Field to get to the desert? Tedious. Swimming all the way back up to the correct panel in the water temple? Tedious. I loved this back in the day, but man...

Great back in the day. Nowadays, I don't know. Kinda makes me wish I was playing Dark Souls, Shadow of The Colossus, or The Witcher 3 instead

must be the cool thing to hate on OoT now lmao
SpikeJet2736April 14, 2016 @ 11:29 pm
I respect Zelda more than I actually like it
ElCriticoNovember 11, 2016 @ 9:02 pm
Flawless at the past of the time, but it's not perfect.

I'm a heretic I actually liked the water temple, the layout hurt my brain a little but the 1 vs 1 against Dark Link with Master Sword was worth it.

No game is perfect but I would say Ocarina of Time along with Chrono Trigger are as close it gets.

Tengo que calificarlo por lo que fue en su tiempo o por lo que es actualmente?
khanivore5March 13, 2018 @ 10:33 am
It's hard for me to look at this game objectively because it's become not only the one video game I compare all others to but also the most personal piece of fiction in my life, and I still have a blast with it.

Oh the memories! That Kakariko Village music still hits right in the heart - what a beautiful soundtrack this game had ❤️

the highest achievement to date in building a fun, engaging and memorable game world for children to simply play around and get lost in.

A pinnacle of Nintendo's creativity and video game engineering; one of the best games in existence.
