    first!

    nice video i liked it

  • Hombre_de_Mundo

    The animations are great and I really like the premise of the story. However I believe the video could really be helped by some proper story-telling. For example, Sheik's role in the story is very vague, she just kind of keeps appearing while guiding Link through the video. Also, does Link suck? I mean why would he just run into a desert sand storm, not thinking about water and shelter, and it seems he constantly requires Sheik to save him. I guess it could be a bit humurous but as I said, the story isn't very clear on what's going on. Also, there are too many short cutscenes. The music starts and then fades after just a few seconds and it's really noticable at times.

    Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoyed the video and I'd like to see more, but as good as the animation and the premise is, I believe fixing the things I just mentioned would make it a lot better.

      That, and properly build sentences.

      Tbh, it just felt a bit silly really when I watched it. =/

    • Taersx

      I don't know where he's from, but I wish he would have gotten one or two native-English-speaking friends to help him with his English. That would have done quite a bit for its credibility.

      A lot of potential, but needs some polishing.

      • PinkX

        Agreed. The animation was incredible but I just couldn't watch much of the video at all. The poor sentence structure, spelling and over all grammar really turned me off to the whole thing.

        • Digga

          I know the grammar was bad, but you shouldn't let that turn you down. You should at least appreciate the story he was at least trying to convey even though some things were vague.

        • slvblrn

          How can you guys say the animation was incredible? Do you know what animation is? If you are referring to character models, that's not animation. Some of the animation is just okay. Most of it is horrendous. The worst is watching Link limp and heave instead of run.

    • BellaKazza

      I agree.

  • Sage of the forest

    I liked the premise of it. The idea that Link from Twilight Princess meets young Link from Ocarina of Time is a brilliant concept. I also liked the animation wit the army of Bokoblins on bulbos. The animation itself was superb. It reminded me of the Super Smash Bros Brawl animation.

  • xosgni

    This Video looked good, but it really needed a better writer for the lines.

  • Niachrez

    The animation was decent, it could use some work with some of the more action oriented sequences, and some of the grammar was bad, other than that it looked great, it could just use some work, and I'm not saying I would ever be able to do any better =)

  • Korok12

    A great video despite minor grammatical and spelling mistakes. The visuals of course are the best part.

  • Ashmic

    I………..like………..orgasm ed

    this was awesome, yes the text is a bit bad bust who cares this was awesome

  • RawrrrgoesI

    This is a great video, but it requires more. There is a lot you can do with it. I know SS hasn't come out yet, but try to reference that in there somehow. And his wolf form, and don't forget Majora (:

  • Lach Menel

    I`m really excited to see where this goes. Like most things, the first is most likely not going to be the best. The story, as people have already stated, needs a bit more. But I love the animation. This looks even better than the game that the style is based on. My favorite parts when people walked. It looked so good! Can`t wait to see the next installment and fantastic job R-w@n!!!

  • zeldafan4040

    WHoa, the bit at the end where adult Link and child Link meet blew my mind! Beautiful!

    • Blizzeta

      technically not adult and child Link. TP Link meets OoT child Link. basically, he meets his ancestor as a child according to the story.

  • zeldafan4040

    " Just BEAUTIFUL " As Steven Tyler would say on American Idol. 😛

  • Anorand

    This Video blew my Mind. If a made this then I would like to see what Nintendo can do in Skyward Sword, but I do have one question about this video who trained Zelda/Sheik?

  • Link beat the running man from Ocarina of Time xD

  • QueenxLink

    OMG SHEIK! 😀 Cool, they kinda mixed Twilight Princess with Ocarina of Time 🙂

  • dark_link121

    SHEIK! OMG HIS EAR TWICHED!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME

  • yanoit15

    this is very great. has so much potential at stake, but it still needs some work. who knows, with more time editing and story lines, this could be the base of the first legend of zelda movie!

  • As soon as I saw the typo "ther" I cringed and couldn't watch it anymore. The animation was very good though. I've been learning 3D animation at school and it's way more difficult than it looks. I can definitely appreciate the amount of work that must have gone into this.

  • MysteriousHat

    I think it looks really good, but the mistakes in the text just makes the whole thing a little silly. But if you jut look at the animation, it's pretty darn good. Arbiter's Grounds looked awesome.

    Although, Shiek's eyes looked a little bit creepy, and Link looked kind of weird when he was running over the fields.

  • Morshu

    Grammar is pretty bad, but the overall story is neat.

  • Alessandra

    Seeing Twilight Princess Link meet Ocarina of Time Young Link is awesome! That blew my mind! 🙂 I wished that Twilight Princess had a sequel like this, that would be awesome. 🙂

  • Jake

    it's sad that the quality of this, the visuals, are better than twilight princess.

  • aeolus9812

    The story is downright terrible…. but the video looks really good and its awesome that someone is taking the time to do it all. But Link just had the Master Sword sitting in his room? Zelda dresses as Shiek and all of the sudden shows up and sends Link on some journey? TP Link is being sent to fight Ganon in the past, which totally destroys the integrity of Ocarina of Time, since it implies what we did in that game clearly wasn't good enough… and I hate the whole "people are disappearing because Ganon is killing them hundreds of years in the past" thing…. people in the "present" wouldn't be aware anything is happening, since altering the past would cause that "present "not to exist and…. ah, its just so lousy…. haha. And the dialogue is horrible…….

    They should have done some kind of Zelda tribute instead of trying to make their own story, OR make an actual new story and not butcher 2 already great ones….

  • Niloc13

    What the hell? This is terrible, completely unoriginal and incredibly badly written. Are you all really so deluded that you actually call this good?

    • Shutup, Erimgay

      or should I say Mondo Surf..
      or Marianne..
      or Sagen..
      or Naw Naw Naw..
      or who knows what the Hell else
      BUGGER OFF, XXXXXXD!

    • lifesavers2

      Let's see you do better.

    • Linktomyass

      I agree.

      That was poor on all accounts.

      The people on this web site are so delusional

      I bet i could take a dump and scratch a triforce into it and people on this site would think it was amazing.

  • Mickey

    The maker probably doesn't write stuff much. It would have worked better if it was visual based.

    I suggest they work on Link's running animation, and grab a grammar textbook, but other then that it's quite good.

    • Toralyx

      You should probably learn the difference between "then" and "than" before commenting on someone else's grammar.

  • The premise of the story is already awesome, and this animation looks even cooler. This is awesome. I would love to see a Zelda Movie based off this. Congratulations. You've won my greatest honor..the Golden Master Sword.

  • Butler

    Their YouTube channel says that they are French, assuming this is true the quality of the text is actually quite remarkable, and it looks like it's shaping up to be really good!

  • dragonchi26

    I am Gobsmacked, like…..WOW. That was insanely impressive work. Be proud of yourself for such an extensive effort. Just need to find someone to write for you, that was a little stale (as most other people have already mentioned). Other than that, it's perfect.

  • OhYeS

    i think this is horrible

  • Very inspirational! This ReMix makes for a good morning listening and helps wake me up when caffeine doesn't do the job. Keep up the good work, I hope to see more of you on OCR in the future.

  • lifesavers2

    Link was buffeted by the Sandstorm! Link Fainted!

  • TwilightPianist

    well there is the one gap in OoT that makes this possible thus a good storyline… the fact that link killed Gannon in the future and not in the past… thus Gannon is still alive in the past. I'm wondering if that's what hes basing this around, but aside from the grammar this seems pretty good. I love the animation and this does seem like it can go somewhere.

  • Linktomyass

    Total crap.

  • Tharkuster

    I thought the models were amazing, although the animation and grammar was not so much. Anyone else notice he used music from the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Trailer when Ganondorf showed up? Kinda made me cringe a little.

  • Cody Gee

    The front flip at the beginning was unnecessary.

  • Harvey

    I liked it very much but instead of running all the way to the desert, Link could have used his horse to get there. There also should've been more action on his journey to the desert and inside the temple.

  • Harvey

    If link was The Hero he should'nt have fainted in the sandstorm. The themes and songs sounded very nice. Oh, and why did he have to fight the boss again if Link had already defeated it in the past? Or did the New Evil make it come back to life. There should've been more levels and enemies inside the temple and on his journey to the temple. One more thing, why did Link have the Master Sword in his house if in the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess series he put the Master Sword in back where it belongs. Anyway, it was great and i'm really excited about what's going to happen next. P.S. Link should've used his horse to get to the desert and the flip was not neccary.

  • RUBI222

    i like the video!

  • zelda fan 2000

    cool i love stuff like this
