5.0 out of 5 stars All Around Good Walkthrough 13 Mar 2006
By JesseJames - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First, let me state that this review should be considered only by those who play games for FUN.. This means, NOT those who play first person shooters online for 16 hours at a time, but those who play video games as a hobby, not a lifestyle; i.e. a few hours a week. Second, don't even consider this book if you're looking for help on the Ocarina of Time, because it won't help. Someone stated previously that it looks like a review out of a video game magazine, and their absolutely right. I've used an Ocarina book I got right here from Amazon for that game, and it was perfect..

On to the review: The game is GREAT, and the book certainly compliments that. I know the first thing potential buyers are looking for is PROBLEMS, so instead of pretending there aren't any, I'll hit those first.

The main problem here (as previously mentioned) is the organization of the book, and it all comes down to your playing style.. If you want to play the game yourself and only have the book as a reference for when you get stuck or for finding little extras, than it's perfect. However, if you want to have everything spelled out for you and not play the game at all without first consulting the book, than this probably isn't the right one for you.. It walks you through the quests for the first 3/4 of the book, and has little footnotes at the bottom of each page, referring you to the side-quests which are detailed towards the end of the book..

If you've played the game, then you know that it's a HUGE ocean, broken up into 49 different squares, with 49 different islands, and once you've passed a few preliminary tasks, the entire world is open to you to explore on your own.. In my experience with the game, this book worked PERFECTLY, because the best part was sailing around the map and stumbling upon new islands and landmarks on your own, without someone or something telling you where to go.. The book complimented this, because it has an entire section showing what you can do on each island, and how far into the game you need to be in order to accomplish each task. This is separate from the walkthrough, which details the actual quests, and not the hidden items and extra goodies available on each island. Again, the organization of the book may be a problem for some, but it will be perfect for others..

Otherwise, the problems are VERY minimal.. There are a few instances where the book will tell you something is worth 100 rupees (dollars) when in fact it's worth 200, or vice versa, but these are few and far between.. I'm 4/5 of the way through the game and I could count those mistakes on less than one hand..

The pictures are clear and crisp, and plenty large enough to see if you have the ability of sight, and the walkthrough itself is well written, inclusive, and comprehensive. It's gotten me through all of those spots where your just scratching your head wondering what to do next, but at the same time the game is simple enough that you should be able to get through the majority of it without help.. Besides, exploring the vast world they created is the best part of the game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Guide 28 Oct 2004
By GeminiVI - Published on
This guide is wonderful. I've bought many Zelda guides, and this is by far one of the best. It's a complete walkthrough with all sidequests. The guide is very clear and uses screenshots along the way to help you out. There's are beautifully drawn maps for each area (dungeons, town, ect.)


+Great maps

+Thorough walkthrough, includes hidden items (I.E. Heart pieces, treasure maps, ect.)

+Huge 35 page sidequest guide, titled Island of the Great Sea


+Missing Links Sidebar that tells you when you can partake in which sidequest if you want


+Move Guide

+Character Guide

+Good Boss strategies

+No holes

+Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time guide included


-Minor spoilers (Only if you read too far ahead)

-This sidequest guide is more in order as when you can do them, I would have preferred it if they had organized it into sections, I.E. Heart Pieces, Treasure Charts, Other, ect.

-The Ocarina of Time guide is too concise, it's just a light overview

Overall: Great guide! It's a must have if you pick up the game, you shouldn't get lost or stuck if you have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay. A review by Princess Zelda 8 Mar 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
This book is not fabulous. I like it, but I had to figure most of the stuff out myself. It doesn't explain every little detail, but it did help me a little bit. Without it, I probably couldn't have finished the game, but it was a little hard to figure it out.
