Ocarina of Time video: Spirit Temple FAP

We're nearly done! After toppling the Shadow Temple earlier this week, I play through the game's final proper dungeon with Chris, Carolyn and Henry along for the ride. The most interesting thing about this temple is that it requires a trip through as both child and adult Link; you'd think more temples and puzzles would revolve around that idea (it IS called Ocarina of TIME, after all), but for whatever reason, the Spirit Temple is unique that way.

It's also the most story-driven temple in the game. Early on you meet Ganondorf's second in command, Nabooru, who ultimately becomes a key heroine as you progress through the dungeon. It's a nice touch, especially late in the game. This is also a welcome setting; running through a brightly lit temple after skulking through the dingy Shadow Temple is a great way to cleanse the palate.
