"Wow"

Graphics: 8/10

Hey, I know they're directly ported from the Nintendo 64, but still, they are really awesome. Some areas, like outside the Light Temple are almost photo-realistic. Also, graphics don't make a game, right? But they sure help!

Gameplay: 9/10

Also directly ported from the N64 controller....with a twist. Instead of using the C-Buttons which were on the N64 controller, you now have to use the c-stick. But don't fret, because after 5 minutes in the first dungeon, it will become like second nature to you. Also, the control stick seems alot smoother than the Nintendo 64 controller.

Story: 10/10

A covert military operation to 'repatriate' a rogue scientist from a secluded island complex turns nasty when the trio of operatives who survive the helicopter drop find everyone on the base torn to shreds. To their shock and disbelief, the murderous third party turns out to be... dinosaurs. Dinosaurs which are now roaming the island and...wait....thats Dino Crisis. Crap. Oh yes. You are Link. The legendary hero of many games on many consoles.In this adventure, you have to stop Ganondorf from taking over Hyrule with only a shield, a sword, and a fairy to start out with. Sounds hard, huh? WELL IT IS! HA! In this game, to save Hyrule, you will have to time travel between the past and the present cyclically to get to areas you couldn't before, and much more.

Audio: 9/10

Very nice. CD quality, and surround sound compatible. Realistic, and pleasant, and the music is awesome and mosly orchestrated.

Replaybility: 9/10

There's so much to do after you beat the game. There is 100 Golden Skulltulas spread out through the whole game world, in dungeons, in different times, and killing them all and collecting their coins is a very time-consuming feat. There are also countless upgrades for weapons and other items that are really hard and fun to get. Sure, beating the story may take you 48 hours real time the first time and without a guide, but damn, don't expect 100%ing the game within the month you get it. Also, there's a master quest on the disc!

Buy or Rent: What the heck? Can you even rent this? Well, I don't know, but if you don't think that $10 is too much to cough up for a very awesome video game, a different version of the game, and almost ten video previews of upcoming games....then....uh...I don't know. Just buy it.
