Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The story of Majora's Mask begins with Link having a brief yet strangely violent encounter with a mask-wearing stranger deep in the heart of the forest. The masked figure kidnaps Link's beloved horse, Epona, and his Ocarina, and Link falls down through a dimensional warp hole. When he wakes up, our pointy-eared hero finds he has been turned into a Deku Scrub! Now he must fight against time, not to mention many other foes, to save his friends.

Playing as a Deku Scrub, you will know how Luke, Obi-Wan and Hans Solo felt as they walked into the Mos Eisley bar in Star Wars. Deku Scrubs, it seems, aren't welcomed in the village, and no one pays them any attention. But being a Deku Scrub has its advantages--like being able to shoot nuts out of your wooden nose (not as gross as it sounds), using flower petals to propel yourself into the air, and lots of other neat trickery.

While the landscape looks somewhat familiar, you will notice a gigantic moon that seems to be falling down toward the earth. That's no optical illusion; it really is falling to earth! For that reason, Link is also battling time. Each group of challenges must be executed within a 72-hour window before the moon crashes down, destroying the world of Hyrule (and you thought you had your hands full just duelling with Gannon).

A sophisticated-looking sundial on the base of the screen displays the game's day and the time. The tough part is that a day on the game clock (meaning 24 hours) takes place every 15 minutes in real time. Of course, you are not going to be able to complete the game in under an hour. Link is trapped in a three-day time loop. If the end is near, all Link needs to do is to play the Song of Time and the three-day cycle starts all over again, with Link retaining all of the information and items he's collected. If this is confusing, watch the Harold Ramis movie Groundhog Day and you'll understand.

As you might have guessed, the masks play an essential part in the new gameplay system. Collecting certain masks will give Link special powers and will transform him into a variety of different characters.

Thankfully, the weapon targeting system and battle style is the same as Ocarina of Time (which is to say, perfect). Expert game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has always been fond of creating new gameplay mechanisms in the past, so it's great that the team decided to leave the incredible Z-targeting feature in place.

The new time-based element might seem confusing at first, but it introduces an incredible amount of depth to an already deeply challenging game. It is innovations like this that have kept Nintendo among the world's premier gaming developers for 20 years. Plus, with older innovations (such as the rumble pack) and newer ones (expansion pack galore, baby!) the list of positives just keeps growing.

As one of Nintendo's biggest flagship series', with all the power of the Big-N behind it, the true Zelda fan should have nothing but blue skies to look forward with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. --Todd Mowatt

Product Description

Matched up against the mystical power of Majora's Mask, Link must race against time to stop the maniacal moon from crashing into the world. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is Link's most massive adventure ever, riddled with maddening puzzles and raging with sword-swinging action. To survive the rigors of this quest, the body must be strong and mind must be stronger. Are you ready?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Legend Of Zelda, Majora's Mask 5 April 2003
Majora's Mask is undisputabley Shigeru Miyamoto's greatest creation to date the game is innovative, exciting and graphically amazing the game is based around 24 masks used in different situations and for different purposes.
Gameplay has been radically improved instead of long drawn out dungeons and boring boss battles we get short challanging dungeons and some of the most exhilarating boss battles ever the idea of using your ocarina to warp back in time is nothing short of brilliance.
The level design and graphics have definatley improved when you enter the main room of Snowhead Dungeon your jaw drops to the floor and when you stare up at the gigantic Odwalda you almost have a heart attack.
The idea of masks has been used to great effect you can change in to three of the main creatures from the last game Deku Scrubs, Gorons and Zora's but the old favorites are still there Z targeting and close combat have improved and you range of weapons is even greater.
This game is a masterpiece and should be in the collection of every N64 owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the biggest game since Perfect Dark 18 Oct 2000
Your mission is to save Termina from impending doom as the moon is about to make an unscheduled stop right on top of you. Forget Ganondorf, your new enemy is now the Skull kid, as using the power of Majoras mask he can now control the moon and if that wasn't enough, he has turned Link into a Deku scrub. This new game is packed with new features as you have to use the power of the masks, which you can obtain from the "Mask shop man" to change into diferent people. In total there are 25 masks for you to find including Goron, Deku, Zora, Great fairy and Bunny mask. Plus unlike the last game theres no where to run from time as it never stops, with only 3 days to save termina. With great mini games as well, including a dog race where you have to pick a dog that you think will win a race around Lon Lon ranch. Be prepared in getting food supplys as you wont be comming out of your room for along time over Christmas. This game will defintly last you along time and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever (in my opinion) 8 Dec 2007
By B Brown
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having got bored of my PS2 in late 2006, I Decided that I really wanted to play some good games again, so I went out and bought an N64, having had great experiences with other peoples' in the past.
Amongst other things, I hacked, slashed and pondered my way through Ocarina of Time and realised exactly why people thought it was the best game ever. I kept reading about 'Majora's Mask' on the internet, so I decided to check it out.
There's a sequel?
Why was I not informed!
I began nagging my mum and it was about a month before I persuaded her to buy me this game off eBay.
So, on to the game itself.
The main thing that I think makes this game better than Ocarina of Time is that it is so much harder. A combination of any-time saving and bosses you could defeat in ten seconds (Gohma?) made OoT pretty easy.
Majora's Mask, on the other hand, involves bosses that are hard to beat and unpredictable, and some very ingenious and clever gameplay involving the three day cycle system. This system is the reason most people complain about this game, but what they don't realise is that that system is what makes it into a living, breathing world.
Termina is a land much like Hyrule, with most of the same people except they have different jobs or occupations. Link travels there and becomes fixed in a three-day cycle in which he must help all the people of Termina and save the world from a falling moon and an insane Skull Kid in a freaky mask. People may only be in certain places at certain times, you might have to do something on the first day that will affect the third day, and so on. This game genuinely makes you smile, despite it's creepiness, because when you finally find a way to help someone you really feel like you've accomplished something and made a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stressful but as Great as ever! 17 Nov 2000
I just started playing this game yesterday. After playing for 7 hours, my first impressions are that this game is stressful: you only have 3 "days" (in fact approximately 72 minutes) to run on various errands, solve castle puzzles, etc. If you can't finish in time, you have to start almost all over again... And when I have only 10 real minutes left to find the big key, switch off crystals, jump from various platforms, find the temple boss and kill him, I start playing worse and worse, hehe.
However, the graphics and musics are as beautiful as ever, and it has all the typical Zelda sounds that make Zelda the best games ever! It just made my hair stand on end to see and hear all these things again! I just can't wait to play some more... and try to finally solve my first temple!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deepest Zelda Game 13 July 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What to know before buying this game:

-The game uses a 72-hour time system, you have three days in which to do as much as you can.
-The game is deeper than Ocarina of Time, it features more people, each with their own storyline throughout the three days.
-There are less temples, only four this time but they are harder than Ocarina of Time's temples

Now then, this game is often said to be 'darker' than previous Zelda games, and for good reason, the whole story is based around a moon that is falling from the sky and will destroy everything unless the hero stops it. It is also more involved emotionally, with several emotional twists and turns involved within different characters in the game.

The game also makes use of masks, which can be used in certain circumstances to make different things happen, there are three main transformation masks and seventeen normal masks, each of which have different effects (e.g. the bunny hood makes you run faster) this adds a new method of playing.

That being said, don't expect to have your hand held through the game, Tatl, the fairy in this game only gives you a general indication of where you should go, rather than basically telling you what to do, so expect to have to figure things out often.

Overall, if you haven't played this game yet, buy it, you might find it difficult at first but it's worth adapting to.
