To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Was okay I'm a big zelda fan and have played most of the series I like how this was a nod to link of past and the wall thing is kinda neat but the borrow item thing is weird and the graphics are terrible blurry weird 3d images much preferred the 2d sprites of link to the past this ain't a bad game but it's certainly not a good looking or fun zelda game get ocarina of time or link to past on virtual console I rather even play zelda dx which is like two decades old or something than play this one
After a friend of mine lent me his ocarina of time, he wanted it back so I ordered this one from amazon.co.uk a year later. This site showed 2 versions of the game, one whitish and this one with red border around called Nintendo Selects. I guessed the red one would have less bugs because it was a re-release, so I chose that one.
I first noticed the graphics of the intro - were my eyes getting bad or did I remember it was more beautiful the first time? But worst of all, this version has ugly text = font style very plain arial, and too small and background non transparent. There were no options to change it, so I will return the item and buy the original one.
Original text looked like this ([...]) the blue transparent background; my version has a blunt blue/black background. Why did nobody mention this huge step back in graphics?
Also the copy I made from my friends version got me as far as 30% of the game (45 hours), and this version does not recognize the copy. This means the Nintendo choice OoT is not compatible with the original 3ds OoT. I had to start over again.
Well the game itself is very linear, you do dungeon 1, get upgrade 1, kill boss 1, do dungeon 2, get upgrade 2 kill boss 2, well before boss 2 you can do dungeon 3, upgrade 3, and boss 3, and then do boss 2, all the while you are collecting spiders, for bonuses, but the locations of the cool stuff is very hard to find without a guide. After boss 3 you get dungeon 4, which is very scary, and I never could defeat boss 4 (i ran out of arrows each time).
The game takes a LOT of dedication and concentration, you need to keep a list of what you did, there is some "Story so far" but that only relates to the main quest, not what spiders you missed or pieces of heart you left behind. In the old days such games were common and gamers had the time, but I wonder if it is for current generations. Apart from the text the graphics are gorgeous, the music is nice and the sense of progress feels good. It's a solid game. Just don't buy the nintendo selects version, buy the original.
Oh one more thing, in case you were missing a manual, it's in-game press the [home] button it then jumps to the manual. Shame though I like to browse through a physical manual.
