Technology Tell writes, "Nothing creates atmosphere quite like the successful conveyance that something is direly wrong. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask blends the familiar with the unsettling by recasting character models from the title’s precursor, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You already know these faces, and possibly the roles that they play. But they are not the same people, and they are quite often troubled and unhappy. Occasionally, someone known to you at two different ages in the first game appears as two separate people, giving the game a very surreal quality that feels like a vivid dream."
