Ocarina of Time comparison including images with the latest screenshots released of the 3D version.
Link freaks me out a lil. And they should have put in a new dungeon. :S
in all honesty i cant tell which is which, edited: lool typo , thnx fat
which is which. witches are evil silly head
It's actually not that hard. The one on the left hand side says ©1998 and has N64 buttons :P
I knew right after the first picture which was which. I've scene that opening so many times, I know there is no piece of grass in that spot.
which witch is which. lol.
the best game of all time is the only one capable of getting to the front page while being a Nintendo game Zelda OoT ftw, I've played this game like 12 times and I'm buying a 3DS just for this, lol :P
@Flywestbrook I agree on the new dungeon. Almost all zelda remakes have something extra, like Link's Awakening DX which got the COLOR Dungeon. Maybe they could of had a 3D dungeon, that would be awesome.
wow huge improvement looks awesome but again have already played it and experienced this legend. Whoever didn't should pick this one up.
True but gotta love what will be the score for this one.
what else do you guys expected? unlike PS3's HD collections, this is not remastered, it's a remake! huge difference
why the disagrees? it's the truth! and I'm not even bad mouthing the game :(
Loved this game on N64. Still runs a fair bit in Project64 on my PC too with a bunch of visual mods. Maybe i am the only one here but i thought it would look considerably better than it does versus the original TBH....N64 hardware is nigh on 15 years old, it had a 62mhz GPU with 4 megabytes of RAM. Every half decent smartphone on the market is immensely more capable technically than N64. Dont get me wrong it does look better and the visuals aren't all important but not quite as much as i would have thought after seeing the Metal Gear and Resident Evil games running on 3DS hardware.
I'm just thankful the bumped up the teaxture quality.
Just that the 3DS may have an edge on the AA aspect, other than that, you're going to have a bitch of a time at the water temple. IN 3D. -End of Line
Water temple is being redesigned for some parts. [water temple is not hard at all...it art not]
honesty they both look abit dated
seems like this game will wow me all over again
I think I'll pass on this one. I love OOT, but I already have it...so unless it has extra side quests or dungeons to explore. I'll pass. Looks much better than N64 version though.
Honestly like the ps2 hd remastering i've been buying, I would buy a 3ds for all those classic N64 games. Especially Star Fox and this game. What's old is new I guess:)
If you cant tell the difference , then you are blind. Re master version: Better textures and lightning Effects, ugly looking link N64: Dry textures, classic looking link End of story, its just better textures on the models.
And I remember the N64 being "fuzzy"
I agree, but the pixel count is about the same since we are comparing an old console game to a portable. It'll look sweet on a portable especially from the pop 3D has, but if it was HD it could really dwarf the N64 one in these comparisons. I need 1080p zelda already...
Yeah, and it sucks going back to gamecube games, (Metroid, Twilight Princess) and not getting 5.1 sound too.
all the colours look so much more vibrant... and clearly if you loved OOT then you would notice the difference in the detail of the comparisons...
Ok. Let's compare a 13year old game to a game that isn't even out. Who you guess it's better?
That is BESIDE THE POINT. Its to show how much they differ, not to show which is better. Its obvious which one is. That button? yeah flip it over.
They should of let this game rest, IMO. Just out of respect of the game. Even to this day, I still consider it the best game of all time, no HD remake or w/e will ever beat the original game to Zelda: OoT. But tbh, I find the original game looking better then the 3DS version. Either way, I kinda find it lame that they are trying to use this game as a way to get the 3DS to sell more. Zelda: OoT deserves WAY more then that...
Actually an HD remake would easily beat the original. However since is Nintendo it'll be a LONG time before one sees an HD remake of one of their games. I myself never cared for the OOT. Star Fox 64 was and probably still is my favorite game on the N64. However I'm not going to go out and pay $300 just to play a remake. I really wish Nintendo did release a Star Fox game on the Wii. Maybe they could finally make a better one than the 64 one.
@JAMurida couldn't agree more. @KingDustero Starfox 64 is my second most played game for N64, damn 4 player local battle on a 19" TV was fun lol.
i actually loved star fox assault on gamecube... i think it was soo underrated... 4 player was real nice
I've beaten this game over dozen times and it is my favorite game of all time...ever...but I don't see the point in re-releasing it again for like the what 3rd or 4th time? No matter how much they improve the now very dated graphics(still awesome though) it has no justification other than playing on our nostalgia to make money. I love this game but I would rather an original new Zelda title for the 3DS, that would get me excited for the system.
...don’t worry about that. Hell, we got TWO on the ds!
I haven't heard about it, but if so then good, its just that they are remaking this great game yet again and it loses a little of its charm every time all so they can milk money from us.
But I’m pretty young (18) and have only beaten OoT once... so I’m more than happy to play it again. I feel like, even though it’s them basically printing money, it’s still a good way to expose young gamers to the achievement that is Oot.
I've got two kids that have never played OoT, this will be the first time they will play it. I see nothing wrong with it getting released.
I suggest getting the master quest on gamecube. The dungeon layouts are a bit better.
I just got done watching Gametrailer’s 6-part retrospective on The Legend of Zelda and I’ve decided to play through the whole series (I came to the startling realization that I’ve only actually beaten a few of them.) I’m going to go chronologically through the split timeline theory, meaning I’ll start with the Minish Cap, play Skyward Sword on the Wii and play OoT on the 3DS when they come out (in that order.) Then, I’ll do the “young link” path, followed by the “adult link” path. By the time I get to the end of both paths (In the GT version, Oracles of Time and Seasons are on the ends of both) I hope they’ll be on the 3DS virtual console. (=
that whole series of retrospectives were some of the best videos i have ever seen on the internet lol. i didnt realize how deep the series ran and how complex it got. need to get on that virtual console soon and play some of these!
glad to see that it isnt just a copy and paste job. Look at how they upgraded the textures and the lighting looks a lot better.
I love this game so much.
3ds pisses on n64
3DS has so many jaggies, but there is a definite improvement in Detail.
its not jaggies, its a remake of an n64 game. just look at Resident Evil or DOA
So then what exactly do you call those little juts on the ends of the characters that I see?
i call it keeping true to the N64 classic. again i don't see jaggies in DOA, Resident Evil, or Metal Gear
Pic 9, looks sick.
Cannot wait until launch day, I own Oot 3 times already and will buy this one as well. However I am looking forward to Tales of Abyss and Snake Eater 3d personally.
Gee can we compare a 15 year old game? How about comparing it to a 5 year old system like the PSP and see how it fares? Not very well I am afraid. The graphics for this system are underwhelming at best. The next PSP will totally blow away this system whereas graphics are concerned.
Resident evil looks fine to me.
here we go again, thinking graphics mean everything. psp2 will be bollocks. just like the first one. sony are wasting time and money trying to compete with the 3ds
Im not really a big fan of this. From all the footage i have seen, Link seems to be the only well updated model. All of the other things looks like a new texture but thats it. ( Where is the fog @ boss 2 ? ) Looking at Resident evil...I think Nintendo could have so much more! The way you can use first person view and move your DS around to look into your environment looks genius. It kinda reminds me of that head tracking thing with the wii. It should really add up to the depth. Now nintendo please release Windwaker 3DS. That would be delish.
Seriously more of the same Nintendo not impressed but a majority of die hard fans will eat up the pr hype & will get suckered into buying more of the same regardless.
I honestly don't understand why people don't like these 3DS remakes. Even if it was the exact same game, graphics and all, just the thought of playing Ocarina of Time on a portable system is extremely exciting. To me, the 3D and updated graphics are just an added bonus. Of course if they spend too much time doing the same thing to Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, AND Twilight Princess, then we might have a problem, even though they all could easily work on the 3DS. I'm just a little worried that the 3D Zelda experience might not be as good on such a small screen, but I'm probably fussing over nothing.
The reason why im not really jumping for this is because: 1: The director said, in an interview, he wanted to keep the nostalgia factor high. To keep it as people remember it, and let new/other people experience it like the oldschool gamers did. Thats why we wouldn't see a remake. Yet here we are, I'm sure he had great internal discussions with Iwata and such, but clearly someone concinved him. 2: If you look at some other 3DS games, you know this game could have gotten a BETTER make over. Hell ill enjoy this game, but im not sure why they kept most of it is as is and just repainted the textures. And honestly? I rather see Link to the Past 3DS...or Windwaker 3DS...or Majoras Mask 3DS... You know what, don't care, Nintendo can go all SE on the old Zelda games and port them all to 3DS. *hopes for FFV & FFVI remake for 3DS as they hinted !*
SIDAR: the reason why the ns64 remakes dont look like such a jump graphically is because the wanted to keep the SAME LOOK AND FEEL. they couldve easily made it look like twilight princess style graphics. you said it yourself the director wanted to keep nostalgia high, this look like a 64 game, just smoothed out
3DS version looks a tad to bright for me, I'll probably turn the brightness down for this one.
they should stop remaking old games.
3DS announced games are simply awesome. Within 12 months of it's release this handheld marvel could easily have 15+ AAA titles. (and that is unheard of before) Looks unstoppable to me.
It's not bad they bring back older series it's just i expect just as much new from them & to put more effort into a new gaming device that at least meets the standards of mobile devices current on the market.
actually I thought the 3DS one looks better/more appealing ..
Call me crazy, but I prefer the look of the N64 version. Maybe it's just the nostalgia talking, but it had a nice "charm" to it that the 3Ds version doesn't seem to have. It's like watching a remastered film from decades ago and noticing that things look a little...off.
while TLoZ:OoT was probably the greatest game i had ever played up to that point in my life and a redux is welcomed, i've noticed that Ninty has a bad, almost additive habit of just rehashing old, OLD games over and over with every new system that comes out. i think they're just a tad TOO comfortable with their legacy games. give me something new please.
3ds version is slightly better. But then again we are comparing a game that game coming out this to a 13 year old game?? They could have put a better effort on to making the 3ds version on pare with games such as God of war and metal gear solid from psp:(
There is an obvious difference between the two versions. Better textures and more polygons on the models are two of the biggest improvements I can see visually. I would say that visually the new 3DS version is superior.
Never played it but does a 13 year old game like this hold up well by today's standard or will it feel like I'm playing a very primitive 3D action adventure game?
