Goofs

During the party at Lon Lon Ranch during the end credits, there are several Kokiri around. However, if what one Kokiri says earlier in the game is to be believed, no Kokiri can leave the Kokiri Forest, or they'll vanish. Saria is an exception, since she's a sage, but if what that other Kokiri said is true, the Kokiri that are at the party shouldn't have been able to attend. See more »

Alternate Versions

The "upgraded" version of this game, previously available commercially only in Japan, was released for English audiences in 2003, under the title "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Master Quest," on the newer format of Nintendo's 128-bit system aka GameCube (the original game having been written for N64). Basic story & gameplay remained unchanged, but dungeon levels were reconfigured to make them more difficult. This special release was offered only in conjunction with pre-sale orders of the game as a promotional bonus. See more »

The greatest single player game ever!
24 June 2000 | by Overlord-4See all my reviews

Who could say this is a bad game? (except for the people in stores playing it and not knowing what to do!) I luve this game heaps, I always play it again, it's big, beautiful and a great storyline. Everything about the game is good, except it is easy, the only boss that is hard is the one in the Shadow Temple, and the producers made it like you have low to none chance of dying because of the fairies, the big fairy outside Ganon's castle and Nayru's Love. The should'nt have put Nayru's Love. Anyway, only game I don't mind playing again and again, only game that truly means adventure.
