Originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was in no way, shape, or form, anticipated to gain the critical acclaim it received. With its seemingly perfect gameplay, memorable characters, and engaging storyline, it revolutionized what we know as ‘the open world‘ or adventure genre today. With a plethora of praise under its belt, and its revolutionary gameplay mechanics, it went on to gain worldwide recognition, being cited as ‘the greatest game of all time.’ The rest is history.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a reboot of an action-adventure classic with huge (iron?) boots to fill; and it has done so near flawlessly. With both a modern re-texturing and character design overhaul, creator Shigeru Miyamoto and developer Grezzo have managed to seduce players, both new and old, into what still stands as the apotheosis of legendary gaming.
