This is a great game but i will not said best ever, I recently play the original and though it was very fun I found myself constantly going to a strategy guide because the game does very poorly on telling what you got to do next, even with the constant annoying of the fairy I did not know what to do next. I guess that's why they put a hint system on the new version. I just don't know why no one ever mention that before.......... until now.
OoT is nothing. I was a kid when the original Legend of Zelda came out on NES. If you thought OoT was hard when it came to getting help on where to go next, you have no idea what us old timers had to go through on the NES.
Sounds to me you're a bit upset about getting stuck on parts of the game? First of all, there are hint movies that pretty much tell you what to do, which is rather unfortunate as previously, clearing OoT for the first time gave one a sense of pride (due to the difficulty of the puzzles, which you have mentioned.) Second of all, if you're going to criticize the game, you should criticize the quality or specific attributes rather than just complaining that the game is too hard. Yes, the puzzles are difficult. Yes it is tempting to use a walkthrough. Try doing it without a walkthrough and just your brain. It will be very difficult and probably very frustrating at first, but trust me, the human brain is remarkable in its learning abilities. I am sure if you gave it a chance, you will get it. Have fun.
Riiiiptide I never said the game was hard or the puzzles, its the fact that when you do finish a temple the game itself seems to just stop. I ask the fairy even the green hair girl, as well as the people, but got no where. I feel like Oot is missing some important parts. That's why there is a hint system now. I guess Nintendo realize that.They are very lucky no one complain then.
The game is very extensive and since I have started playing the 3D version, I cannot quite remember exact details. Can you give instances of where you claim "the game itself seems to just stop"? I think collecting the Spiritual Stones is very straightforward (currently working on the third on my 3D game right now) and if I recall correctly, Navi gives pretty good directions on where to go for the temples.
While Navi is annoying, there were some parts where she was actually helpful in the original game. I, personally, liked the fact that the game kinda leaves you wondering what to do next....that's old school gaming there and it gave me alot of satisfaction when I figured out things on my own. Even so, that doesn't diminish the fact that I feel it is a great game. I love games that make you think. These days, one hardly uses their brains unless they have to, lol.
yea i noticed that Zelda is not for everyone. I have friends who have played a few games and actually never passed them. It takes a combination of adventure and focus on the story to know where you gotta go or what you gotta do next. I've never had trouble passing any zelda game, the only thing tricky is all the side quests.... finding all the heart containers/ killing all the golden skulltulas/ acquiring the 4th bottle/ getting the Goron sword... that stuff takes some questing to GetR dunn.
Really? You haven't figured it out yet? People use them as like and dislike buttons.
That said, being able to vote on the first post is useful. If someone posts a thread about their favorite ice cream in here, that would not add to the discussion of Ocarina of Time 3D and thus should get "no" votes.
This is true. I beat the original Zelda on the NES when I was just a kid, but it was a group effort involving me and several of my friends who also had the game. We'd give each other tips and info on where to go... was how it was done before the internet. It was kind actually kind of cool that way. Killing Gannon with the Silver arrows and just finding him in that damn dungeon felt like such an accomplishment!
I managed to get through OoT without a guide. Compared to some other Zelda titles OoT is a piece of cake.
The only LoZ I've never beaten was Zelda 2, tAoL, but I'm working on it now. That is probably one of the most unforgivingly difficult games I've ever played!
I kind of agree with you I started playing the original a year ago and put it down for 4 months and started playing again and I'm just lost which is why I'm going to play through it on the 3DS then go back on my N64 and try to complete it.
