I already had the original Ocarina of Time, but I took a chance on this anyway. The 3D is amazing, but they went beyond that. The controls have been completely reinvented. It's so easy to switch items or look at the map now. Just tap them on the touch screen. There's hardly anything but the game on the 3D screen. No button icons or stats. All that stuff is on the touch screen. I was blown away that I could look around in first person mode (or when using the hookshot, slingshot, and bow) by just moving the 3DS around. You can use the circle pad too, but what fun is that? I have already beaten it and unlocked the Master Quest, but I haven't yet tried the boss challenge. Nintendo added so much to this version besides just remaking it in 3D. Definitely worth the money, even if you already it for the N64, Gamecube, or Virtual Console.
