The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D review
Exceptional
by treesniffingzombie

While I prefer the N64 version, I do like a good deal of the improvements to this one. The improvements are mostly of convenience, though there are a few irksome ones - like the fact you can no longer swim fast as a Zora without performing the magic attack or how spinning as a Deku Scrub no longer boosts your water-hopping speed. The other things that irked me are mostly out of nostalgic principle, and not really huge issues to the game itself... namely item placement - like the Stone Mask or Bombers' Notebook, which pretty much throw themselves at you in this version. The best addition is the use of the 3DS's gyroscopic controls to aim and the dynamic changes to the bosses, while easier to approach than the N64 version, are still really cool. It's still the same great, philosophical adventure game at its core, with most of its truly important assets kept the same.
