Ocarina of Time is better than Breath of the Wild
Replay through Ocarina of time was a treat. No, not the 3DS version; the original version. While playing it, I came across a simple revelation: Ocarina of time is better than Breath of the wild in almost all facets. Gameplay, puzzles, dungeons, story, music, boss fights; you name it, Ocarina of time does he have. The only part where Ocarina fails to surpass Breath of the wild is in the size and reach of the world, the adventure aspect of the game and the graphics. With Ocarina of time, Nintendo has created a true masterpiece that has stood the test of time. If there is no doubt that Breath of the wild is a great game, it fails to meet the charm and quality of Ocarina of time, despite the vastly improved technology. While many claim that Breath of the wild is not only the biggest Zelda game but the greatest game of all time is really Ocarina of time who takes this coat.
Ocarina of time has one of the most unique game mechanics of all games – the ability to travel back in time and alter future events, as well as the ability to use the Ocarina of Time to unlock certain secrets. The change between young and adult Link has yet to be matched in all games. Breath of the wild miss that. It has no defining mechanism. It’s one of the many things that define Ocarina of time Except Breath of the wild. In fact, almost all Zelda the game has a defining mechanism, yet Breath of the wild Is there one missing. A great example, and the best example of the use of the bond between young and adult, occurs with the Temple of the Spirits, which is one of the last dungeons in the game. have play as young Link. Once you complete this part of the temple, you change the future and allow access to new areas, allowing you to enter as an adult link and complete the dungeon. It’s never been done in a game before and that’s one of the reasons it’s my favorite dungeon in all. Zelda.
There is only one thing Breath of the wild To Ocarina of time beaten, and that’s the size of the overworld. There is no denying this. Both games are packed with adventure, but due to the size and scope of Breath of the wild and advances in technology, there was no possibility of Ocarina to do this. Despite this fact, Ocarina is still full of secrets possible only by crossing Hyrule. Dungeons in Breath of the wild are bland, as are the puzzles. Yes, there are 120 shrines, but they’re incredibly short and pretty easy. The gyro controls actually make some of the “puzzles” rather frustrating, and not because they are difficult. The game’s four dungeons are pretty easy, don’t have enemies, the puzzles are pretty easy to solve, and the boss fights are bland, all variations on each other. In fact, the final boss is another variation of dungeon boss fights, which is frustrating aside from Dark Beast Ganon, which is similar to a few other boss fights in the Zelda franchise. I give Nintendo credit for doing something different with shrines and dungeons, but they don’t perform well compared to dungeons in the franchise, in particular. Ocarina of time, which has the best dungeons in the franchise.
The story in Ocarina is simple, but it’s executed so well that it works. It’s consistent. The story in Breath of the wild is non-existent. There’s a story told through flashbacks, but it’s so rambling and you never know what really happened 100 years ago, it’s the story everyone wanted to know. This is compensated by the adventure in the game, but there is no balance; it just doesn’t work. Ocarina has the balance between gameplay and story and that’s what sets it apart Breath of the wild in terms of history. Music in Ocarina of time is iconic. It contains some of the best music not only from the series, but in all of video game history. Breath of the wild has some great songs, but since music is part of the gameplay mechanic of Ocarina, there is no competition. The Ocarina’s game mechanics were and still are revolutionary. Breath of the wild lacks such a mechanic, which detracts from the quality of the game. It’s still fun, it’s still enjoyable, but it’s just not an elite game. It just gets the “best ever” because it’s the last Zelda Game.
Ocarina of time is not just a better game than Breath of the wild, but beats it in almost every aspect in terms of quality. This became painfully evident throughout my current part of the game. The dungeons, the puzzles, the music, the game mechanics, the story, the boss fights; it beats it beats Breath of the wild in almost all categories, without graphics or exploration. Ocarina of time is a very special game. It has literally stood the test of time. With all kinds of rumors of an HD remake making the rounds Zelda’s 35th anniversary, Nintendo would be foolish not to comply. There are so many new things Zelda fans who have not yet experienced this masterpiece, and with Breath of the wild expanding the fan base is a great opportunity to maximize profits.
Ocarina of time will always hold a special place in my heart, but not out of nostalgia: it is simply the best game ever made, and one of the most enjoyable. It’s almost unfair to compare it to Breath of the wild, but you have to make a distinction. Breath of the Wild 2 has the potential to surpass Ocarina of time if it’s done right, but only time will tell. Until there, Ocarina of time will continue to be not only the greatest Zelda game of all time but the greatest game of all time.
