Who doesn't remember Ocarina of Time? It brought Legend of Zelda to the N64 and is considered by many to be one of the best games in the history of time.

Graphics: 10
At the time Ocarina had the most beautiful graphics around, and the look given to the cast of characters has inspired every Legend of Zelda game since.

Sound: 10
From the fields of Hyrule to the Temple of Time to the many other environments of the Legend of Zelda world, the environment music makes you feel the difference in every area you visit, and the music you play on the Ocarina is instantly recognizable to almost any gamer. The only mild defect is the lack of voice acting, but with music like this, who needs voices?

Gameplay: 10
Never has a game done so well with such a simple formula: Put players in a dungeon, make them search for a key to the boss room and for a weapon to kill the boss, and then repeat. But this simplicity masks one of the best games ever, with every fight and puzzle made to the perfect standard of being not too hard or easy, and being so dang fun that just about anyone that owns this game would never give it up.

Overall: 10
With the perfect blend of plot, gameplay and replayability, this game stands strong even after years of industry progression. Even today few games can be considered the equal of Ocarina of Time.

If you own an N64 then buying this game is a must do, and in fact Ocarina is the sort of game people buy a console to play. If you're a gamer and you enjoy a great game, play this.

This game is awesome, I love it. I was born in 1994 so this was the middle of the SNES era and in two years the N64 would come out. And 2 years later in 1998 came this unbelievable game. This was the first game I ever played and the first game I beat. I love it. I must have played through this game's amazing story and gameplay millions of times.

Graphics: 9
This is the lowpoint in this game, yes a 9 is the lowpoint, and that is a good score. The character designs are kind of awkward but for an N64 game this one is good. It's an amazingly detailed masterpiece with all sorts of things that happen in the background.

Sound: 10
This game like every Zelda game has amazing sound. I mean it is just unbelievable. The music is heartbreakingly beautiful, the ocarina and harp sound beautiful, and you will find yourself playing the ocarina just to hear the music.

Gameplay: 10
The game displays a perfect 10 in this area too. I love this game and the gameplay is the true story. There's a great storyline, plot, and everything else. This game has a perfect system with the z targeting that allows you to fight really well.

Overall: 10
This is the closest thing to perfect that any game has ever had. I love it. My favorite Nintendo game along with ff3(snes) which I will probably review at some point. I love everything about this game. It is beautiful, the sound is amazing, the gameplay is fun and interactive featuring tons of weapons and game styles that will make memories for you. The best N64 game period. Maybe the best game of all time. This one gets a 10 out of 10.

Well, that is basically all there is to say about this one. It is awesome. This game is just awesome.
