Ya, so far I'm about two hours in. Still kinda getting used to the controls but the Z targeting is Great!

Ask away!

How do you open doors in this game? I wish there was some sort of tutorial on this.

Edit: Nevermind, found it. I guess it's the A button when it says door. I feel they could have made this a little more clear though.

Why is the game so terrible? =/

#4 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@hunter5024: kinda tricky but you need to stand in front of a door and press A when the prompt changes to open. Some doors can't be opened so simply however...

#5 Posted by TooWalrus (13333 posts) -

Yeah, most first impressions post are kind of useless.

#6 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@beachthunder: I'm loving it so far I really suggest you give it another shot. Don't wanna be hasty here but I'm feeling this game will be GOTY.

Im not sold on this 3rd dimension thing, is it really necessary?

#8 Posted by Maajin (1142 posts) -

How do you get the triforce?

#9 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@slyspider: you need to experience yourself to believe, but yes. It's risky but it pays off

Should Link talk?

How Du I Get Fire arrow?

#12 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@oscar__explosion: I think Link should always be a silent character. Bummer that other characters don't talk though. Probably hardware limitations. But with these graphics I don't even care!

just started the game and i cant figure out what button pulls my sword out. ive pushed every button and nothing happens. this game is dumb, ever bit of art for this game shows zelda using a sword, but as soon as you start it up you learn HE DOESNT HAVE A SWORD!

0/10 worst game ever, dont need to play anymore to know it sucks

#20 Edited by Conker (913 posts) -

@iburningstar: do you mean 'Link' using a sword? You have to find the sword bud, he's not just gonna pull it out of his rear end

Why does your character have a girl's name?

#23 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@supamon: a common mistake made, zelda is the princess. Your character is called Link.

Ok so I finally made it into this tree guy, I'm inside him? So disgusting. But now I can't continue. I am in this cave with plants and water. HELP.

#27 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@nictel: you gotta climb up the vines to a room where you get the sling shot. After that climb up some more near the chest in the main room on the second floor till you face those giant skull bug things. Kill one then jump to break the Web!

#28 Posted by Superkenon (1559 posts) -

Does this game have eight-way running like its predecessor?

#29 Posted by phrosnite (3509 posts) -

Why do you move backwards faster than running or rolling?

#30 Edited by TheHT (12378 posts) -

make sure you land on the web. there is fall damage in this game.

Is this a follow-up to the expansive new lore introduced in the Panasonic CD-i games?

I feel like there's a Nintendo metaphor in there somewhere...

#39 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5195 posts) -

Is this reddit?

#40 Posted by Conker (913 posts) -

@theht: yep, found that out the hard way. Though if you keep pressing forward on the stick you can avoid fall damage if the fall isnt too high!

#41 Posted by Rafaelfc (1790 posts) -

@conker: Thanks! Though I am unsure if I can continue, it gets really scary.
