Ok, just finished the game. I think it took me around 50 hrs. I think this Zelda is one of the most beutiful and story driven Zelda's to date. A few gripes about the game are the bosses and linear progression. The bosses were too easy and there was a lack of side quest IMO. But everything else made up for that. The last boss although easy, was pretty cool. I liked the seperate stages of the battle, but I thought it could've used a little more thought. For such a huge world, I think they should've included more stuff. One thing that I liked but also disliked at the same time was the weapons/accesories. There were a lot, more than previous Zeldas, but there was no upgrades for any of them except the double clawshot (which is awesome). There really was no need for upgrades and I understand, but I miss the feeling of have more powerful stuff as you progress in the game. One last gripe is the damn rupees. There is nothing to buy in the damn game except the damned magic suit and helpin' Malo (cute little guy , which reaises another question, is he a boy or like a dwarf?...). Nearly all the chests I opened I had to put back. They should've made some kind of awesome purchase. I don't know what but something cool, like collecting figures or sumthin'. With all that said, the lack of purchasing and upgrades on weapons, there really was no point for those in this adventure/story driven gem. Overall, I'd place this Zelda in second place right after LttP. With WW and OoT tied for third. I know I only listed things I didn't like but besides those little things, the game is perfect. The thing that made this game great was the Epic Adventure. It was like no other Zelda. Dungeons were fresh and new. Nothing felt too overdone it was a great adventure. Would you guys say this was one of the easier Zeldas, or are we just great Zelda players from years of conditioning. The only part where I got stuck was in the Sky Dungeon; I missed a stupid switch in the begining. Not the one in the big room, but the one with the 3 fans, you hit the crystal switch and 1 turns off. A few puzzles had me thinkin, but they didn't get me super frustrated.
