GDN: I feel unfortunate that I only got to play part of this game’s original Nintendo 64 release. Thankfully, I played enough to understand the game and mostly know what to look for in this modern remake, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It’s still the game that laid down the foundation for most modern Zelda games, and it still holds up well today. Despite its importance in gaming history, the original was released toward the end of 1998 and this review will assume some readers aren’t familiar with Ocarina of Time; hopefully it will be useful to veterans and newcomers alike. In quick summary, Ocarina of Time is a 3D, third-person action-adventure game where you’re given a large fantasy world to explore; your goal is to defeat a variety of enemies, solve various puzzles with an ever-expanding set of equipment, take on some fairly large bosses at the end of certain locations, and follow the storyline that justifies all this adventuring.
