Nice to see what once was

Reviewed By: MAOT666 on 21 Dec 2021

Some minor spoilers ahead:

I watched a play through this a few months back, seeing the Beta areas before what they could eventually become in the next year after it’s official release back in 1998, and now seeing what some dev’s did to re-create this is a really cool!

I liked seeing how even some of the medallions had spells for them (Like ALLTP had spells for Bombo’s & Ether) Fairy (Like in Adventure of Link), And even Sword Slashing while walking like what we got in Twilight Princess. And even having some extra Arrow spells looked really neat,

My favorite part of this was seeing what the Forest Temple looked like it Beta, walls with light shinning through them and the mini stair case going down towards the Phantom Ganon fight (which would have been a tight fight in the smallest room possible)

Seeing what the Deku Tree, Dodongos Cavern, Gerudo Training Grounds, ect, once had made me think why some of these things they changed around or even got rid of (Some to big, Some to small?) and wasn’t in the final release, but can understand things (Like the Fairy spell) could easily break the game

If you’re a fan of Ocarina Of Time, and wanted to see what the Beta once had with some enemies thrown in the batch you should at least check or try this out yourself, good couple hours of fun for sure!

8.5/10
