Zelda takes 3DS to new dimension.

LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME 3D (12+) Nintendo 3DS pounds 39.99 Out June 17 THE adjective "classic" has become almost meaningless with over-use in gaming circles.

And yet it barely begins to cover the status of Shigeru Miyamoto's 1998 adventure The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

The thought of the original's gold N64 cartridge is enough to send gamers of a certain age and stripe into a rapturous reverie.

As a result, this portable 3D remake feels like having all four original Beatles at your beck and call to perform Hey Jude whenever the mood strikes.

The scrubbed-up visuals are stunning, whichever dimension you look at them in, while the re-mapped 3DS controls fit like Link's Silver Gauntlet.

Peerless gameplay and perfectly pitched puzzles also serve to confirm the game's true genius.

After all these years, Miyamoto's Zelda is still simple to pick up but absolutely impossible to put down.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time reaffirms itself as the most compelling reason yet to get yourself a Nintendo 3DS.
