Here we go… the dreaded Water Temple, the bane of so many existences the world over. Watch in horror as I trudge through its murky depths, cussing and complaining while Carolyn directs with a handy printed FAQ. Henry, Charlie and Chris stop by too, but I barely notice from deep inside my rage cloud. Seriously. I’m genuinely upset by the end of this thing.
At the very least, the odd lag problem that plagued the Fire and Forest temples is gone… too bad I still take like 10 minutes to kill the damn boss, who’s far more annoying than I remembered. I know some of you don’t find this temple to be as horrific as the internet has made it out to be, but after playing for the first time in nearly 13 years, I hate it more than ever. Good thing the 3DS version has taken steps to make it a little less miserable, eh?
Next up: the Shadow Temple, which features some kind of nifty hover-boots
