The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time for the N64

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the fifth Zelda game in the series. This is the first Zelda game for the Nintendo 64. Ocarina of Time was released in North America on November 23, 1998. Nintendo sold 7.6 million copies worldwide. The game was also re-released on both the Gamecube & Wii systems. On top of that, there will soon be a remake of the game on the Nintendo 3DS. In the gaming edition of Guinness World Records 2010, Ocarina of Time holds the world record of being the most critically acclaimed game of all time.
FUN: First of all, you play a magical ocarina. That's the main part of the game that really fun. You also get a horse to ride on named Epona. It's also fun to move around in a 3D world. However, the only problem was the fact of the annoying fairy named Navi. I rate FUN - 1.5.
REPLAY: Let's face it... the Zelda games don't have any replay value. I rate REPLAY - 0.
STORY: Link, the Kokiri without a fairy, later finds out that he the chosen one to defeat a evil named Ganondorf. Link would be needing to gather the three elemental stones and later tokens from sages Link wakes up. After pulling the Master Sword from the Temple of Time, Link ages seven years. With the help of a mystery person named Sheik, Link travels around Hyrule to awaken the trapped sages. We also find out that Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf each have a piece of the Triforce. Link has courage, Zelda has wisdom, and Ganondorf has power. I rate STORY - 2.
DIFFERENCE/ORIGINAL: The game is the first one to use play note by note buttons for the ocarina. It also began the two characters Ganondorf and Sheik. This game started the whole Ganondorf equals Ganon business. This game also explains the holders of the three parts of the Triforce. Ocarina of Time added a whole new travel companion, Epona the horse. Also the fact that there were three girls that like Link instead of just Zelda. The other two girls were Saria the Kokiri and Malon the farm girl. Of course the big introduction was the annoying fairy, Navi, who kept saying 'Hey! Listen!' at bad times and also over and over again. I rate DIFFERENCE/ORIGINAL - 2.
DIFFICULTY: I can go half and half on this. Some parts are easy and the other parts are hard. It all depends on the person who's playing. I'll leave it up to you. Comment on this, I really want to hear you guys opinion. Until then, I rate DIFFICULTY - 1.
TOTAL - 6.5
There you have it... that's my rating of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Even though this is my favorite 3D Zelda game, I still rated it fairly and by the topics I picked out for this blog. Thank you and keep reading.
