Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Majora's Mask 3D is a beautifully remastered port of one of the best entries in the Zelda series. Along with a fresh coat of rendering come fluidly redone animations, fresh takes on boss battles, and the same time-based, mask-swapping, side-questing gameplay that you either loved or hated the first time around.

The Pros: 

+Beautifully re-rendered
+Thankfully, minimal touch-screen integration
+New twists on boss battles, so you have something new to figure out
+Gameplay transfers very well to the 3DS, much like Ocarina of Time 3D
+There's a fishing mini-game. Bitches love fishing mini-games

The Cons: 

-For a die-hard fan, some changes might be annoying
-Fluid camera controls only work with a Circle Pad Pro
-Streamlined Bomber's Notebook now mangled to incorporate any and all quests; storyline based or not Rating : 

I have historically been a massive fan of Majora's Mask. To take something like the Legend of Zelda and steep it in death, darkness and mystery was tantalizing to me, and the ominous sense of foreboding it had against Ocarina of Time's straightforward dungeon-crawling Zelda-ness was so different. I don't fight people who say they couldn't get past the time-constraint gameplay, because it was actually always a gimmick that I hated, too.
