"Majoras Mask" liebt das Detail: Es geht um die vielen privaten Probleme, um die Menschen in der Welt und ihre Nöte, es handelt von vielen kleinen Geschichten, jede auf ihre Art anrührend. Dem gegenüber steht die monumentale Pracht eines Epos, der legendäre Kampf des Helden der Zeit gegen die Mächte der Finsternis, die Entscheidung zwischen Gut und Böse. Das war Ocarina of Time. Majoras Mask ist anders. Weniger monumental, eher im Kleinen ganz groß, aber mindestens genauso atmosphärisch, genauso perfekt auf seine Art. Entweder Ocarina of Time oder Majoras Mask? Nein! Ocarina of Time UND Majoras Mask.

Majora's Mask is brilliant. It is absolutely, categorically, worth the 1000-Point asking price. You should download it. That's all you really need to know.

It's really a shame that so many people never got the chance to play this game when it was first released – many would argue that it's superior to Ocarina of Time in almost every way, and that it rightly deserves to be regarded as the pinnacle of the series instead. As such, it really is an essential download – if you haven't played this game, you're missing out on a truly amazing experience.

Majora's Mask is a classic installment in the Zelda franchise, an instant hit with fans and critics alike when it first debuted around eight and a half years ago on the Nintendo 64. There, it became the second Zelda game on that particular console -- placed as a follow-up to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and also serving as a storyline sequel to the events in that masterpiece. But even though Ocarina was a nearly impossible act to follow, Majora's Mask still managed to shine in its shadow -- thanks, in large part, to its completely unique design concept and its darker overall tone.

If you've already played it, you can enjoy it all over again but we suspect there's a whole audience of Zelda fans who came in at Wind Waker or Twilight princess and deserve to see just how dark Link's adventures can really be.

A fantastic title that worth every penny. Truly the most underrated game in the franchise and often the most deserving of the Zelda name.

For players who enjoy the Zelda series, Majora's Mask offers a very interesting twist on the standard game story. For a new generation of gamers who are experiencing this game for the first time, the game is quite enjoyable if one can get past the outdated graphics and sound. Younger gamers may not appreciate and/or worry about the dark undertones of the game, so to them, it may simply present a new adventure game with fun challenges including great puzzles.
