The Legend of Zelda: the Ocarina of Time

In the land of Hyrule, deep inside a vast forest, lived the Kokiri children. Each one had a fairy partner. But there was one boy without a fairy…

*Spoilers Ahead*

That child’s name is Link, the character you play as in this game. The game starts off with a cutscene of a fairy named Navi and a talking tree that tells this little fairy to go find the “boy without a fairy” and bring him back. That tree is called the Great Deku Tree, the guardian of Kokiri Forest. Navi will fly off to find Link, who is currently having a prophetic nightmare. Along the way, your partner-to-be will bump into a fence, I

I like this game because it’s fun and has quite a selection of Easter eggs in it. Easter eggs are hidden things in the game. For example, Talon at Lon Lon Ranch looking similar to Mario and having a Bowser pendent just like his daughter Malon (she sings and always has her hands covering the Bowser Pendant). Another example is when you go to the shooting gallery and attempt to get a piece of heart, even though it takes a few tries to do it unless you’re a pro at using the fairy slingshot and fairy bow. Instead of a piece of heart as an adult, however, you will get a big quiver instead.

But, there are some things I don’t like. After you complete the main game, Master Quest mode will be unlocked. I tried it, and the MILLISECOND I stepped into the Great Deku Tree, I was attacked by gohma larva and INSTANTLY died. Master Quest is IMPOSSIBLE! Also, the ENTIRE WORLD of Hyrule is reversed. In main story mode your friend Saria’s House is to your right, making it confusing, and so is everything else. If you want to do Master Quest, have somebody else do the main story mode, otherwise you get too used to things. One more dislike: Master Quest’s enemies are TWO TIMES harder than in the main story! At least the Wikipedia for this game has a section for Master Quest. One last thing: glitches. First off, a glitch is something that happens in a game that’s not meant to happen. You can skip getting your “four-legged friend” in Lon Lon Ranch as an adult. However, that is only a minor one. There are BIGGER glitches, like falling off the map, or getting the hook shot as a child. Oh, and if you go left of Hyrule Castle, you can activate a glitch where you must QUIT THE GAME to get out. To do so you must have bombs and a bottled fairy. Lower your health until one bomb can kill you, and then let it blow up. You will fall in the hole, and die in water. The bottled fairy will revive you, but you’ll be swimming FOREVER. Then, you have to quit the game. Here’s one my friend Lollipop222 told me have happen to her older sister: suicidal Link. Link is going to ON HIS OWN—her sister was not able to do ANYTHING—FLY UP IN THE AIR and blow himself up with a bomb. Her sister said “Okay, suicidal Link…” which is pretty weird. I have the 3DS remake, and NOTHING like… THAT has ever happened to me. No glitch has ever activated on me. Miamoto, the game’s creator, probably found this in the old version of the game and got it fixed. I give this game—what a shocker since I give most things five —four paws.
thought was pretty funny. Anyway, once she gets in Link’s house, Navi wakes you up to take you to the Great Deku Tree. Once you get to the entrance of the Great Deku Tree’s Meadow, the bullying jerk faced so called “boss” of the Kokiri named Mido will tell you that you need a sword and a shield to pass. Basically he’s saying “You shall not pass!” So, you will have to go to the forest training center, go through a “hole of ‘L’” and pretend like Link is Indiana Jones to find the Kokiri Sword. Then, collect rupees (Hyrule’s form of currency) to buy a Deku Shield. Now, talk to Mido again and he will, jealously and jerkily, let you pass. Then you can finally help the Great Deku Tree! After you solve all the puzzles, go to the boss of the dungeon, Gohma. Once your task is finished, inform the tree that let you inside and he will tell you to go to the castle of Hyrule to meet Princess Zelda. After you do that (and admire the Mario paintings/Mario scene in the window to the rightJ) you go through 2 more dungeons, pull the sacred sword in the Temple of Time, go through 5 temples and defeat the main boss, you can enjoy the ending credits. Congrats, you beat The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time!
