first off this game is fun. second its like playing Link to the past back on super nintendo. but this time different more like a hd or 3d or 2.0 version. did i say this game was fun. why. it feels bigger. and fun to see old and new things..new dungeons, old dungeons, new areas old areas. New story, but same story, resuce princess, fight evil, but with a twist loved the ending never saw it coming. thought i wish there was more story. more story scenes. music was the best. sometimes in some dungeons u dont hear it much. but you will be busy with the dungeons new layout..and fun-ness. theres old and new music. as for getting all the weapons in the begining. i like the suprise factor of not knowing what the item you will get in the dungeon instead of renting or buying all at once (you have enought rupees. thats just me. trying to guess what new item will be in this dungeon. learning the item and puzzles at the same time. the benefit of this new version of items is you will end up mastering them all before the end of the game. make up tricks, styles of play. combos. streetpass feature is neat. sometimes ez, sometimes hard. based on who you fight. play smart with your items. more rupess is not always the thing to worry about. other than that. a game worth renting or buying. for me. ill rent again down the road.
