17 August 2007
Excerpt: Sometimes, approaching a game for the first time with a multitude of force-fed preconceptions is not a good place to be. “It’s the best game ever” they cry. “10 out of 10 – perfect “. “If you don’t enjoy this, you may as well be dead!” …I’ve just checked my pulse and I couldn’t feel anything… On paper I should really enjoy the latter Zelda games – I’m a big fan of the fantasy genre across all mediums, and I’ve been enjoying games not dissimilar to this for the better...
Excerpt: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, heralded by many as the greatest video game ever made, holds up well under the test of time. It’s been 8 years since the classic launched on the Nintendo 64, and when it did, it sparked something in the hearts and minds of gamers all over. Selling millions of copies, Ocarina of Time set the bar so high for other Nintendo 64 and future Zelda games that many wondered if it would ever be reached again.
Excerpt: For my first Zelda review, I thought I would give a little history. Here it is. July, 1987, NES-- The Legend of Zelda is released for the NES. It stars Link, who must rescue the Princess Zelda from the evil king Ganon. Ganon soon becomes a Zelda game mainstay in the games that follow. December, 1988, NES-- The Adventure of Link is released.
Excerpt: When the first screens of the actual title began to seep out into the public from Nintendo of Japan, the sharp and detailed look of the title amazed all who saw it. Richly detailed environments and characters promised that the first 3D Zelda title would be the sharpest looking game available up until that point. The final product was even more spectacular for its era then one could have imagined.
Excerpt: Ocarina of Time came closer to gaming perfection than any other game, and it is still a wonderful game 5 years later. The gameplay is fun, the music is enchanting, the dungeons are huge and intimidating, and the graphics were excellent when the game came out. Expectations were riding high on this follow-up to another classic game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Fortunately, Nintendo was able to produce another superb Zelda game.
Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time had become before its release either the greatest game of all time or the most over hyped depending on who you listened to. It would be the N64's savior or a giant bubble of hot air waiting to explode. After its release reviewers from every magazine and web site were proclaiming it as perfect and the best game of the year, possibly of all time.
Excerpt: Ocarina of Time, the first go on the Nintendo 64, is considered by many die hard Zelda fans to be one of the best games of the series. Say what you will, but the innovative Ocarina of Time surely earns it’s rep by being one of the most playable Zeldas I’ve seen to this day, and one that deserves all the hype attached to it.
Excerpt: Step into Link’s boots, and save Hyrule in this incarnation by defeating Ganon. Ocarina of Time has had it’s share of criticisms and other things. But in my opinion, it remains one of the greatest games I have ever played, and believe you me, I have played quite a few. Some of the greatest graphics for the 64, trumped by few others, this is where the 64 delivered.
Excerpt: Alo rs même que les quatre premiers épisodes de la saga ont marqué les joueurs par leur audace et leur qualité , voilà qu’arrive pour la première fois en 3D le nouvel opus de la série : Ocarina of Time.
