After waiting patiently for this game to be reduced on the Nintendo E-shop, I managed to grab Final Fantasy 7, 8, and 9 with 50% off during July 2020. Having the games for the original consoles, I wanted to re experience these classic games on my Switch.
If you asked me what Final Fantasy game is my all time favourite, 8 would be my answer before that sentence has even finished coming out of your mouth. Although I may have been 8 years old at the time, I can vividly remember getting emotional playing this game, getting excited when having to switch the disks up, and mass saving on my memory card so I could go back and replay certain missions.
When I watched Nintendo Direct, I was not prepared for the gasp that left my body when I saw Ocarina of Time come up on my screen with the possibility of Majora’s Mask coming onto it as well. I thankfully pay monthly for my Nintendo Online, so I was prepared to accept for the Expansion I would probably have to pay upwards of £40 on the spot to access it. If you know me, The Legend of Zelda has a special place in my heart, it was the first game I had that locked me in, I was able to discuss with class mates and helped me escape as a child.
Thankfully in the UK it was £34.99, a lot cheaper than I anticipated, which as a birthday treat for myself purchased on launch day. For me this must have been the 12th, minimum, playthrough of OOT, as I’m one of those fan girls who own a copy on every system. So as I was playing I had certain expectations of the port as I have played the N64, Wind Waker special edition version, and recently started a new save on the Collectors Edition so it was pretty fresh in my head up until the Water Temple boss fight for me. This will be more of a how I got on, not a review of the games story, with slight spoiler images. How did I find playing this version? Read on to find out.
As a huge Zelda fan, I knew I wanted to get the Switch instead of the Lite version purely because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the game on a hand held system when the time came for me to invest in Breath of the Wild. Before I get any Zelda game, I try not to look up anything because I don’t want to ruin the storyline or gameplay so I went into playing this completely blind, not knowing what to expect. This post is based purely on the base BoTW game and not it’s expensions.
This review will not contain any spoilers! Feel free to read to see what the gameplay is like without ruining the story if you’re considering purchasing.
I paid £37.99 for this as I used my gold to pay towards it, as well as it being included in the Nintendo Shop Sale.
