The Vault: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Remember experiencing “that moment” in your favorite game that really showed you how special it was? Imagine walking into a giant living tree after just earning your first sword and shield.

Look Back: Skyward Sword Review

Some people hold Skyward Sword as one of the greatest innovations in the series, while others treat it as the ruination of the series. The game has some flaws, but it also does a number of things right and certainly deserves to be called a Zelda title.
