O.o Old thread. Ah well.
Loved TP to bits. Boss battles were far too easy, side-quests were a joke, but other than that, I think it rocked. I don't think it was a OoT clone, as many people seem to believe. The Wolf transformation and new items made it feel new. The dungeons felt new and fresh, with that mix of classic Zelda puzzles and brand new ones.
OK, it's not exactly as huge as Nintendo claimed...I finished it in 38 hours, took me 8 days. And it was a school week. But still, 38 hours is nothing to sniff at, still a chunky game.
EVERY game has it's weak points...MM had the time limit and crappy saving, WW had the sailing. OK, I don't think OoT had any weak points...maybe the Water Temple? :p
I loved it. Maybe those that didn't were expecting too much? Understandable considering the insane hype it got. :p
