In 1998, one of the greatest video games of all time was released. That game is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Two years later, the sequel to that timeless classic, Majora's Mask came out. Even though Majora's Mask is the sequel to Ocarina of Time, it's very different than not just Ocarina of Time, but it's also different from the rest of series as well! I'll explain what makes this game so unique and what I think about it with this review.

Graphics: 10/10  Like Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask's graphics are some of the best you'll see in an N64 game. The game looks very realistic for it's time, and each area in the game looks the way you'd expect it to. Everything from the ominous moon to the creepiness of Ikana Canyon looks spectacular and in some cases very creepy, as you'd expect from a game that's as dark as Majora's Mask is. I also love the way clock town looks as well. For these reasons I give the graphics a 10!

Sound: 9/10  Majora's Mask has a different soundtrack from it's predecessor. It really fits the tense atmosphere this game possesses and it's also one of the best soundtracks for an N64 game. While I still say Ocarina of Time has a better soundtrack, Majora's Mask still has great music. For that reason I'm giving the sound a 9.

Addictiveness: 8/10  The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is one of the most addicting games in the series. One reason for this is because of Link's new forms. Those forms are Deku Link, Goron Link, and my personal favorite Zora Link. Deku Link can shoot bubbles out of his mouth, he can launch himself out of deku flowers and fly for a short amount of time, and he can use a spin attack to stun enemies. Goron Link can throw punches, he can also curl into a ball and use a ground pound attack. He can also roll around really fast as well. Zora Link can use his fins to punch, also he can use the fins as boomerangs, which happens to be my favorite thing about Zora Link. Another thing that makes Zora Link so great is he can use an electric barrier move, which can be used as a shield and makes him swim faster as well. All these new forms that Link has makes this game have some of the best gameplay in the entire Legend of Zelda series.

Majora's Mask also happens to be one of the most unique games in the Legend of Zelda franchise. You have 3 days to save the world of Termina from the falling moon. If
you fail, the world will be destroyed... You must make every second
count so you can accomplish your goals before time runs out (or you
could always play the song of time and reset the clock) There's nothing
else quite like this in the series, which is what makes the game so
unique.

One of the only things that I didn't find addicting about this game is the boss battles. The only bosses that I found really entertaining were the first two bosses in the game. Other than that I felt like the bosses were either really annoying or very boring. Also certain side quests require you to be at a certain place at a certain time. This can be really annoying because if you're a little early then you'll either have to find something to do to pass the time, or just wait until the right time so you can progress though the side quest. This can become really tedious. Other than that I feel like Majora's Mask was a very fun game to play, and for that reason I give the addictiveness an 8.

Story: 9/10  I'm only going to talk about the beginning of the storyline. The story for Majora's Mask starts in the Lost Woods, where Link is riding on epona, trying to find his old friend Navi. Along the way, the Skull kid comes and steals Links ocarina and starts riding on epona. Once link catches up to the Skull Kid, he finds out that epona's run away, and the Skull Kid turns Link into a deku scrub. Link meets a new fairy friend named Tatl and together, they enter the land of termina to try and find the skull kid so Link can get his ocarina and regain his human form. Also, they must stop the moon from falling and causing the end of the world. This game is the darkest in the series and the story is much different from other games in the series. For these reasons, I'm giving the story a 9.

Depth: 5/10  The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has some of the best side quests in the series such as the Anju & Kafei quests. This is where the pluses for depth end though. Unfortunately, this game suffers from a severe lack of dungeons and bosses. If you include the final dungeon, there are a total of just 5 main dungeons. There are a some mini dungeons as well, but that doesn't make up for the lack of main dungeons... Ocarina of Time had 9 main dungeons, yet they give it's sequel about half as much. Heck, even the gameboy and gameboy color Zelda games had more dungeons than Majora's Mask does, which is completely absurd! Also there are only 4 major areas in the game: Woodfall, Snowhead, Great Bay Coast, and Ikana Canyon. Because of these issues, I'm giving the depth a 5.

Difficulty: 8/10  Every Legend of Zelda game has collectable items you can find such as pieces of heart. Majora's Mask also has stray fairies you can find in dungeons. If you collect them all, you can get special power ups. These stray fairies can be difficult to track down. Also, certain boss battles such as the Great Bay boss can get really annoying. Lastly, trying to figure out when you have to be at a certain place by to progress through a side quest can be annoying as well. For these reasons, I'm giving the difficulty an 8.

Overall Score: 8.5/10 Let's face it, trying to make a Legend of Zelda game better than Ocarina of Time is always going to be an impossible task, but Majora's Mask still managed to be a great sequel. It has spectacular graphics, a great soundtrack, fantastic sidequests, and some of the best gameplay the series has to offer. Unfortunately though, the game suffers from a major lack of dungeons and bosses. If it hadn't been for the limited dungeons, I would've given the game a much higher score, but instead I have to give the game an 8.5. Majora's Mask is a worthy successor to one of the greatest video games of all time.

This was a really nice review that you wrote here man! You did a lot right, and you apparently really love the game!

I like how you followed the format and put everything into categories and described everything in great detail. You really made it clear that you really liked this game, and even made me want to play it, (yes, I have never played majora's mask lol I know tuts sad). I also like how you bolded the headings which made it just overall look good.

I really liked your review man, and it liked all of the insight you put into it and the amazing detail. Keep up the great work!

Barathemos : Thanks man! I'm glad you liked my review! When you get the chance, I think you should totally play either this version or Majora's Mask 3d.
