I was looking up something about it for my Zelda Quiz and I kept seeing complaints about how hard it was. What is your opinion on it?
I remember being a bit bothered with the constant adjusting of the Water Level, but the only parts that really annoyed me were the battle with Dark Link and trying to climb the hill that led to the boss. I don't think it was that much worse than any of the other dungeons.
Fighting Dark Link was fun, the trick to beating him is not to target him with Navi because he will always copy your moves parry. Start swinging your sword a lot when he comes near you the chances of scoring a hit on him will significantly increase.
water temple isn't hard is just...long and boring I guess.Every temple had something that is the theme of it like water temple is puzzling thats why i like spirit temple and shadow temple they have much more fighting like stalfos but shadow had wallmasters
I'm actually on Water Temple right now! Man, the hookshot's aim with the keyboard SUCKS. I'm still at the early part of the Temple, I already have the water level down by one... 2 more to go, I guess. I found the switching of Kokiri Boots to Iron Boots repeatedly to be greatly annoying, since the ROM game on here slows up each time I press start (spacebar), and while it is loading for the menu to come up, the game freezes for at least 10 to 20 seconds.
I recently replayed the temple in the RGR and it wasn't nearly as bad as I remember. You just scour all the rooms at a particular water level, adjust the level and scour again. Repeat that a few times and you'll have the major item and the boss key. The worst part is the hill, but it's not as bad if you start from one of the sides instead of trying to go up the middle.
Guess what? I found a way to make aiming a lot easier so I made a thread about it and attached it to the game's page in the RGR. I can almost guarantee that you will need it later. There's a part where you have to shoot an eye, then look up quickly to hit a target with the hookshot. Without my trick, it's nearly impossible (you need a lot of luck). Check this thread:
I just hate trying to play through it in the RGR. There, because of some odd problem, it takes like 20 seconds for my menu to open, so switching boots takes forever. Plus, the lack of an analog stick makes aiming things really hard, too. And as for the battle with dark link, well, don't even make me start in on it. That was hard enough on the actual N64 itself!
