Ocarina of Time 3D proves once again just how impactful and timeless the original game was
The world of Hyrule is just so much more beautiful. It's been brought back so elegantly. It's brighter, more colourful, and you really get a feeling of the vast scope with the 3D. The game runs much smoother. All the pre-render stuff is gone. Some sounds are redone to improve the quality, like the Ocarina sounds, but it's unfortunately MIDI, but don't forget the old saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Speaking of which, a broken part of the game has been fixed. Remember how annoying it was going in and out of the pause menu in the Water Temple, taking your Iron Boots on and off? Now you can assign them to a button, like on Twilight Princess! The Water Temple is actually a really good dungeon with that out of the way!
After a week with the game, I've gotten to the Shadow Temple, and it really shows just how much I've improved since I played the original. It feels like it's all coming full circle. Everything I've come to believe about gaming since I picked up Ocarina of Time is just showing how amazing this game is. This game makes me realise EVEN MORE just how timeless and perfect this game is. Once I'm done with that, I can play a mirrored version of the Master Quest!
One of my favourite new additions is the Sheikah Stones, which give you hints when you're stuck on a part. They can also tell you where secrets are hidden, which was really helpful for me. Navi even sometimes urges you to take a break (Like I'd do that, even for a second). THE VERDICT
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is an absolute essential for the 3DS. You cannot buy a 3DS and never play Ocarina of Time 3D. It brings a gargantuous classic back to life and fixed anything which might seem a little iffy. The perfect game just got even better! If you missed the original, you have to get this! SCORE
+ It's Ocarina of Time, of course!!!!!
+ Improves upon dated graphics
+ The new hint system
+ Fixes up the Water Temple 100%
