Two soundtracks for the game exist. An American soundtrack features longer musical tracks, but is missing some of the music. A Japanese release has all of the music, but the tracks are noticeably shorter to compensate for this. See more »

A Legend that will never die
5 March 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the most fantastic game ever created in history. The storyline captures our attention and emotions. Link, Zelda, Malon, Saria, Darunia and everyone else are almost real and amazing. Nintendo did its greatest job ever! The graphics and land of Hyrule are breathtaking. The song is something I've never expected to hear. It's fantastic, it's extremely dramatic, especially the opera tunes that play when we witness the Creation of Hyrule or prepare to receive a Medallion at the Chamber of the Sages. The Ocarina is the best tool of the game. I love to play it, especially the songs we learn through Sheik. No game, not even Super Mario 64, not even Goldeneye, not even Jedi Knight, not even the original Legends of Zelda (A Link to the Past-1991, The Legend of Zelda-1986) will ever be able to overcome a game that has become a legend. It's the greatest creation in history. Nintendo will never be surpassed by Sega or Sony. It's the BEST!!!
