Nintendo Power‘s review for Ocarina of Time 3D is in – how does it stack up against the original, which they rated 95/100? As it turns out, they actually both earned the same score, which just goes to show you that even twelve-and-a-half years later, the game still impresses modern critics just as much as it did the audience of 1998. The magazine not surprisingly had a lot of praise for the 3D effect and the touch-screen features – although they were quite vocal about having discovered a renewed hatred for Navi.
The reviewer seems pretty dead-set on this version being the superior one, despite their equivalent scores, which is a good sign for anyone wondering whether anything’s suffered with the 3DS transition. Just a couple weeks to go before we get to judge the game for ourselves. Are you excited yet?
