I'd rather have a fun game with infuriating difficulty , at least something that will make you work and master whatever skills you have. too bad Nintendo doesn't know how to go beyond a luke warm challenge these days unless you're hitting up the Special World in the latest super mario games.

The last gaming experience that truly tested my skills was Mega Man 10 on hard mode Completely going off topic, but didn't anybody else finish MM10 in hard mode? if so, you've got my little frog headed respect.

I see someone probably likes Fire Emblem(and I'm not talking about me, it's 100% sure I like Fire Emblem so it's not probably XD )

@CountWavula: Yeah, I feel the same way. It's disappointing to hear this game is easy, especially after Skyward Sword tried to ramp up the challenge like it did. I prefer to feel like I accomplished something by reaching the end of a game, but why make games last a long time when you can have someone blow through a game in a day wanting more?

Just completed it tonight, loved every second of it. I know it was a tad easy, but that didn't stop me enjoying the dungeons and feeling immensely proud when I worked out a puzzle ha.

So now a lot of us are completing it, I guess we can talk about favourite dungeons?

I liked the Ice Palace because of the tricky platforming bits. I enjoyed the Tower one too, I forget it's full name, where you had to use the hammer.

I wasn't too keen on Turtle Rock, was just a bit boring.

I found the game to be a masterpiece so far I don't think its to easy compared to other Zelda games actually most games nowadays are to easy love the music animations and the dungeons so far have very creative puzzles absolutely love the game
Not sure because I haven't beat it yet just haven't had enough time to play but do you unlock a harder difficulty like hero mode or something?

Speaking of hero mode......Can someone enlighten me about the "the hero mode might take awhile to complete" thingy? What is it?

Enemies do four times their usual amount of damage in hero mode. Most things will instantly kill you until you have six hearts. You die all the time, so the difficulty spike makes it a little longer.

Nothing aside from an easter egg and four times the damage is added to Hero Mode

I think hero mode should be an option from the get go

Right, i know about the quadruple damage and the easter egg, im at Lorule in the hero mode, and I thought I saw somewhere online where it said there's something after you get all the items.

There is a change in the ending if you beat Hero Mode, although it's very minor.

As for the difficulty... I found this game's difficulty to be perfectly fair to be honest. Zelda games have never been 'hard' since at least Zelda 2 on the NES, and this one is arguably a bit higher than that of the last few titles (especially the 3D ones and DS games). And hey, the combat's fun with the arcade style gameplay and the actually quite aggresive enemy AI.

P.S. As far as whether a difficult but annoying game or easy but fun game is better, I'd say there's no one answer to this. I mean, on the one hand, quite a few old NES era games were extremely hard, but were still enjoyable to play. And then you've got say, the Kirby and Wario series where the difficulty is mostly non existent (but where the games are still fun). I'd rather have a hard game like Zelda 2 than one with no difficulty at all, but I'd also simultaneously rather have something reasonable (like this game's normal mode) to something insanely hard to the point of being complete and utterly unfair (like say, SMW Lost Brain).

Since I took the week off work for the Thanksgiving holiday, I finished it today. It was a very fun game, and I thought the wall-merging ability was very well done. I'm slow, it took me 31 hours (although for several hours the game was paused while I played with the grandkids). I'm not ready to start the hero mode, I'd rather go back and replay the Ocarina of Time master quest first. (Ocarina is the game that's had the most play time on my 3DS, 43 hours 40 minutes.)

So, has anyone seen this?

Apparently, that weird stone tablet thing from the ending has normal Japanese text on it, meaning that someone who knows Japanese might be able to translate it and reveal more information about the game's storyline. Anyone up for the job?

Sadly yes. Of course the only thing that I saw is the mask in Link's house but then again I never played Major's Mask much so I maybe be missing other things.

Anyway after a break for a few days due to the holiday I finally got back into it. I just beat the Wind Temple (or whatever its called) and suffered my first defeat . Been trying to get all the lost octopus babies and so far I have 28 of them. And I dont know about anyone else but are you guys finding getting rupees a bit easy? I am about to hit 3000 rupees.

Well, I went into the Lost Woods and suffered my first defeat as well...

I didn't want to reset because I was so happy I'd figured out how the dungeon worked, but now I have to go back to Ravio and rent a bunch of things again...

On a sidenote: does anyone know how to get the pegasus boots?

@GuardianKing:

They are in Karkariko village. The thief that stole the Zora's gem has them. What you do is turn into a painting by the building he is next too and pop out behind him to catch him. Once you do that he gives you the boots.
