Plot. Several months have passed since Link defeated the Great King of Evil, Ganondorf, and saved the land of Hyrule. Link begins his search for an unnamed friend in the woods on his horse, Epona. Suddenly, a masked Skull Kid with his fairy friends, Tatl and Tael, steal Link's horse and his powerful instrument, the Ocarina of Time. When Link follows him into a cave, he is turned in to a Deku Scrub, and the Skull Kid flees with Tael leaving Tatl behind. Upset over his treachery, she agrees to help Link return to his human form. He also receives help from the Happy Mask Salesman. And now, he is in the parallel dimension of Termina. When Link returns to his normal form, he goes on another quest, to travel through the four corners of Termina, and save it from destruction in three days, and also to retrieve the apocalyptic mask that is worn by the Skull Kid, it is called: Majora's Mask.
Also, players can save money in order to prevent losing it, they must head to the mini-bank to deposit either a small or large sum of money. When returning to the first day, the money they have is still there at the place where they deposit, and guess what? The more money you obtain, you get a bigger wallet. The Giant's Wallet is obtained with the Gold Skulltula quest in the Great Bay Spider House.
Concept. Players take the role of Link, at first they must retrieve the Ocarina of Time from the Skull Kid, and then play the Song of Time after getting it back in the last day. Players have three days to complete the next quests, but in order to save time, they can slow down time by playing it in reverse. Link can also advance time by performing certain actions, and advance six hours by playing the Double Song of Time. After completing the quests, they enter the moon for a final showdown.
Design. The graphics of the game are the same to those of Ocarina of Time, but the 3D blurring sequences makes the game very unique in it's own aspects. The mask sequences are also very well made, and also the boss battles are great.
Music. Koji Kondo and Toru Minegishi composed the music of the game, and largely consists of reworked music from Ocarina of Time, and also the new version of the traditional theme of the series such as the "Overworld Theme" and new material. As described by Kondo, the game's music has an "exotic Chinese opera-sound". As the three day cycle progresses, the music changes in the Clock Town, except in the Termina Fields.
Tips and Strategies. Players must complete the quest in three days, otherwise the world will come to an end. In order to save some time, players have the ability to slow down time by playing the Song of Time in reverse. There also sidequests to complete, in order to obtain all the masks, so that at the end of the game, you obtain the Fierce Deity Mask, after "playing" with the four children inside the moon, wearing the mask of the defeated bosses.
Rantings. What I do not like about this game is the Razor Sword having a 100 use limit, and also you have to get it back once you played the Song of Time and went back to the first day. Second thing I did not like was losing money and ammo after going back to the first day, but what was relieving was depositing money. Also, I hated the Goht world in the final showdown because, it had my gaming skills tested in which I would unleash my inner Bruce Lee against the wall. Now I did not like the Snowhead Temple because, it was very staggering by trying to make it to the top.
Good Aspects. Now I really like the Ice Arrow creating icy platforms on the water, which Ocarina of Time did not had, but still it was epic. The Skulltula sidequests were completely different from OoT, because you did not had to wait until nightfall in the fields, and instead of finding them in dungeons, you found them in secret houses in the Termina Swamp and Great Bay. The boss battles were amazing, especially the one against the boss of Ikana Tower. Zora Link was my favorite mask, because you swam a lot faster like a fish.
Overall. Majora's Mask is a good game, though some friends I have and my cousin would think differently about it, I still like it. You can also download this game on the Wii Virtual Console for 1,000 Wii Points. This game gets an 8 out of 10. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
