This review is on Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask; this is the second Zelda game to be released onto the N64. The aim of the game is to get the mask called Majora's Mask from this evil kid, before he brings destruction to Clock Town. Clock Town is the place you are at the start, well about to enter it. Link is a boy who was raised in a forest; his first game was Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time, and that is the beginning of his adventures. He is a kid that finds a sword in a forbidden area, and a shield. After this adventure, the game Majoraís Mask was made.
At the beginning of the game, you find this old man, who carries masks, and he gives you Majora's Mask. But this evil kid of some kind steals it from Link, and puts it on. You have 72 hours to till the world comes to an end, from the power of that mask. But luckily, you have the ocarina, and you can perform a song that make you travel back into the past, back to when you first started out. At the beginning after that part, you get this Deku mask stuck on you, and you turn into a Deku, and you do this mission thing, where you are searching for a person to take the Mask off of you. Once you get it taken off of you, you will be able to put it on and off as you will. You will need to put it on again further in the game.
There are loads of other masks that you can find, and buy, which all have different powers. You will need certain masks to get to certain areas, so you can get further into the game. The further you are in the game, the more powerful masks you will find. When you equip them, you will have certain powers. But you won't just find them lying around on the ground, they will be in high places, or they will be given to you as a gift for helping them or stuff like that. Or you win them in competition type things.
The currency in this game is Ruby's, which when collected. You can buy stuff, like shields bombs and all that type of things. Green Ruby's are worth 1, Red Rubyís are worth 20, Purple Ruby's are worth 5, and Gold Ruby's are worth 10. You will need to collect these rubies so you can buy equipment so you can defeat your enemies quicker. You can hold a maximum of 99 ruby's with the small wallets, then you can get a bigger wallet further in the game, till then you can keep your rubies in the bank, if you donít put them in the bank, and you play the song to travel you back in time, you will loose all your ruby's.
You will have to do loads of little things as well, so you can get more life hearts, you start off with 3 of them, and if you find these special blue hearts, you will get a quarter of a life heart, and when you find 4 of them, you will have another life heart pop up so you will be able to live for longer.
The game is very enjoyable; you can entertain yourself in this long action packed adventure, to save the world. The game is very addictive, you could be playing this for hours on end, and you won't have completed it, so you will need to keep trying and trying. The game is very original, you donít find many games like this, accept the other Legend of Zelda games.
The graphics of the game is very good, you will like the graphics as they are smooth, not too pixily either. You will like the game because of its graphics. The sound of the game is good, it has good soundtrack, when you go to different areas, and it will have different music, and at night time also. There are no voices in this game, accept little things, like a bark noise of something stupid like that, other then that the talking is in type form. The sound affects are good, when you are attacking people with your sword, the music you play on your ocarina, and all that is great.
The game is not really that difficult at the beginning then it goes into hardcore hardness, where you will need strategic thinking, to pass the challenges, and tackle the bosses you will come against. This game is really good, it is worth the money, it costs around 10 - 20 pound, depending where you get it from, but as it is an old game, you will have trouble finding it. If you have a Gamcube, you can get the Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Collectors Edition, which has Majora's Mask and some other old Zelda games as well. I like this game; I use to own this for the N64 till I sold the game, which was a big mistake. I will give this game a 4 star, because it is a good game, and I enjoy all the challenges you have to do.
