A few of my friends despise it, but I think it's awesome. It's more difficult than Ocarina of Time. There are only 4 temples, but there is so much to do - skulltulas, collecting masks, and a hundred other things... I would get it, it's not that expensive to buy a used copy.
This game pissed me off when I was younger, but last year I picked it up again and found it to be better then any other Zelda game. Worth $30-$40 bucks tops, It's a great game 10 out of 5, but get a guide this game is tricky.
When I originally played MM I enjoyed it about as much as I did OoT. A few years ago I played it again, and came to realize I loved it. I've played the game several times since then, and find that I enjoy it as much, if not more, each time. OoT has had the opposite effect.
To say the least, MM is my favorite console Zelda.
The biggest complaint I see people have with it is the time limit (and it isn't even that, really). Here's a tip: speak with the scarecrow.
I felt the same way! I still like Ocarina of Time and kept playing it because I hadn't gotten all 100 Gold Skulltulas until recently or done everything on my own. Back when it first came out if I couldn't figure something out I had my then boyfriend do it for me. Like fighting Ganon(dorf)... I hadn't done it myself until this last time I played. Anywho, Majora's Mask is just as good. Yeah only four bosses to fight as opposed to eight in OOT but there are a lot more Mini-Bosses. About the only thing I didn't like was the fact that you lose all your c-button items such as arrows and bombs & your Rupees if you save. But I quickly learned to go to the bank to deposit the Rupees before I saved my progress. Another annoyance is the number of times you have to kill the stinkin Wizrobes. He's an easy one to kill even without the advantage of seein his position on the map but it seems as if whoever made this game got lazy and didn't want to create anymore new mini-bosses. Also, getting the Goron charged enough to make it across was a pain. I still don't know how to do it and therefore gave up on the heart piece you collect from the child right before you fight Majora. Oh and Majora was too easy. I had all three incarnations down in five minutes!
