The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
Nintendo didn't go above and beyond the call of duty with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, but the improvements do in fact make it a more playable experience. Many of the frustrating elements from the original are gone, and because of the nature of the three-day cycle, it's a perfect thing to pick up, play, and turn off after one cycle completes. Majora still isn't my favorite Zelda, but I'm much more inclined to go back to it on the 3DS.
Majora's Mask might be the best Zelda game, but then again, you could say that about almost all of the mainline instalments in the series. This remake changes that title – for the better, from a technical view – but that's likely to mess with fans' nostalgic tendencies and will confuse returning players at points. But, for anyone playing Majora's Mask for the first time, this is an extremely refined reworking of a game which would likely feel archaic and broken if released again in its original state.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is just as much an oddity as it was fourteen years ago. While some aspects of it haven't aged well, Nintendo has made enough smart changes to make this remaster worth a second look for those like me who left the original undone. It's nicely presented, shows some real growth of the seeds planted in Ocarina, and is easily among the most unique games in the franchise.
A great adaptation for an unjustly forgotten classic. The perfect opportunity to play it if you missed it at the time.

Zelda by name, but beneath the mask lurks something much darker.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D proves that this series can truly transcend time, with the game being just as fun as it was nearly 15 years ago, while also bringing new additions that will make it near impossible to go back to the original.
ABXY Moon (sorry)
Majora's Mask is an odd one, but it's a legendary game from Nintendo's library, and one that deserves a rerelease. With its graphical improvements and system enhancements, one of the best Zelda games is even better this time around — and that's really saying something.
Nevertheless, we are here simply to say what we already know – The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is a lovely game
Remastered Nintendo 64 adventure is the first essential 3DS game of 2015.
