The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Branden Barrett says: "At times you may have to transform into a Goron to roll over that narrow hill, engage the Deku scrub's helicopter technique to cross a canyon, or use the boomerang fin trait of the Zora to hit that far off switch. The classic puzzles that have become a staple in the Zelda genre are all here and the fluctuating timing of them in each dungeon bring together a feeling of balance. "
Zack M says: "Overall, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is an improvement of its predecessor. However, it doesn't seem to capture the same epic feel as The Ocarina of Time, and, in the end, the first Nintendo 64 Zelda game will be the one you'll always remember."

ratking says: "A sequel to one of the greatest games ever, using that same control system which made it work so well. This game should be great, or even better seeing they know what to fix from the first Zelda (even though that wasn't much). Problem is Majora's Mask is not even close to as good as Ocarina of Time, and is not near as fun to complete.
