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.

Yeah, I don't think it was that big of a deal...sure it was the climax of challenge in the game, but that's what made it fun.

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.

It's actually real simple and easy to get used to, It's not all paralleled like in Twilight Princess. You only go through the temple's water changes about 3 times only, not much of a drag

The item though is pointless... That upgrade should've been like an upgrade you can easily buy

Water Temple O What Can I Say? Fun,Not As Hard As Everyone Says Even More Fun When You Can Beat It But Your Friends Can't And You Watch Them Play.Although The Climb Is Really Annoying.

I've always hated water levels in games. They're just overly frustrating for me, sure it's not hard, but it isn't fun for me.

BNuge : The water temple was the most stressful, longest, complicated temple of them all. Especially playing on a keyboard.

Adjusting the water levels was the least of my problems....having to aim for targets with the hook shot using a keyboard is the absolute worst! This temple is my least favorite.

I'm going to be completely honest and admit that I always used a guide for it. It frustrated me, and I wasn't in the mood for spending hours in one temple, so... I just used a walkthrough :p

I didn't use any guides or anything, I just got through. It was a hard puzzle, but puzzles are my thing. That's why Assassins Creed and Zelda are among my favorites.

The Water Temple certainly isn't my favorite place, I like the Fire Temple.

I loathed that hill. That hill is evil. EVIL. It took me two of my bottled fairies just to get to the boss the first time I played it. Adjusting the water levels was annoying, too.

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.


Snowdeath :

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!
