Crazy Credits

If you had the optional rumble pack accessory on your controller, it would shake during the brief scene in the credits where the giant goron was dancing, to mimic the shockwaves his footfalls would cause. See more »

Alternate Versions

A common misconception is that only the gold version of the cartridge represented the first version of the game. In reality, a limited number of Version 1.0 gray cartridges were produced following the gold version preorders, before various elements of the game were tweaked, such as the Fire Temple music and Ganon's blood color.

The Best Video Game That I Have Ever Played
23 July 2005 | by BSHBenSee all my reviews

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is quite possibly the best video game ever made. The environments, particularly Hyrule Field, are huge and very detailed. Perhaps the best part about Ocarina of Time is the incredibly long game play. The main game is exciting and their is an almost uncountable number of side-quests. You can try to find all 100 Gold Sculltulas, collect all the pieces of heart, acquire the Biggoron's Sword, complete the Training area for the ice arrow, catch the 20-pounder fish, or own all four empty bottles. Ocarina of Time's N64 sequel, Majora's Mask, is also a great game, although Ocarina of Time is a bit better.
