Storyline

A 'Zelda' game made later in the series, and the second in the chronological order of the story. Three months after the defeat of Ganondorf and the resetting of time, Link is attacked in the forest and loses his beloved horse, Epona. Setting off to find her, he accidentally stumbles upon the parallel world of Termina. At the gateway into Termina, the famous Happy Mask salesman tells Link that a very valuable mask which contains an ancient evil spirit was stolen from him. He hires Link to retrieve it, and says that he has three days. Link enters Termina and coincidentally, in three days, the moon will crash into Termina and destroy the world. With the power to reset time, Link ventures to unravel the correlation between the evil mask of Majora, it's thief the Skull Kid demon, the vicious moon, and four ancient guardians that everyone on the planet seems to respect.

Gaming for the great.

Once again, The Legend of Zelda series puts Link in another huge, puzzling adventure with one dungeon after another.

However, this never gets repetitive. Majora's Mask could possibly be one of the best Zelda games ever, surpassed only by Link's Awakening. First of all, I've got to mention the immenseness of this game.

Although the game centers solely around just three days, there are so many things you, as Link, can do. Everything is timed perfectly. What you do one day will affect what happens the next for better or for worse. Everyone will always be at one certain place at one certain time. Nothing is random in this game, which makes it perfect for a time-traveling adventure. Everything is positioned according to time.

The graphics also jump a step higher than Ocarina of Time's, keeping out glitches that nearly killed Ocarina of Time.

The music is also really great. Koji Kondo put a lot more effort into this game than Ocarina of Time. I bought the soundtrack to Ocarina of Time, which was a waste of money since the music was really low. I got Majora's Mask's soundtrack for free with a subscription and expected it to be like Ocarina of Time's, but I was amazed at how movie-like some of it gets. For the record, I got the soundtrack before I got the game.

The game, although it only has four dungeons, is not short at all. A lot of time will be spent running through Clock Town as a Deku Scrub at the beginning.

Like all puzzle games, frustrating points pop up frequently, like trying to reach Snowhead Mountain, for example. This game could have been better if it was maybe a bit easier in some points.

If you get the chance, you should really try this game out. It is unlike any Zelda game you have ever seen. Also, check out the soundtrack if you ever find it.
