OMG - EmP loved a Zelda game! That Hell hasn't frozen over during the time of this one's penning is amazing.

Haha. Anyway, I think I remember you nagging me to read this when you first wrote it. I did. I remember liking it then. Reading it now, it's still good, but the age does show. =P

Haha, when I first wrote this review, I didn't even know you.

Like hell you didn't. Unless you mean when you first wrote it on GFs. We've known each other since February of 2004. (I remember these things.) =P

Anyway, I'll be more precise with my feelings about this since you went into much appreciated, albeit unexpected, detail with mine.

I liked how this one started - it was witty, amusing and it emphasized what made this game different from the other Zelda games. But about halfway through, the style shifted somewhat - perhaps unavoidably - into a more typical review. You even discuss the seemingly ubiquitous (but seldom necessary) points of graphics/sound. I find these things unimportant unless they're outstanding. But at least in your case here, it sounds like the graphics were at least worth the mention.

It also feels like you spend a bit too much time talking about the first... probably fifteen minutes of the game. But even so, you seem to cover everything that's necesary and use pertinent examples to do so. The armored monsters thing was definitely interesting, though for all the importance you seem to emphasize on the game's diversity of options, I'm left wondering why it's only talked about towards the end.

Still, like I said, this was an old review, but still good. I still like it, even if it's not the best thing you've ever written.

Yeah, this was a port from my brief stint as a FAQS exclusive reviewer. I was much more in love with the idea that I was the most hilarious person alive back then, and it probably hurt my writing a lot more than it helped it.

Still. I like this one! Thanks for digging it back up so I can be nostalgic, and I'm glad you didn't hate it.

Emp, Internet's clown. I like it. And dread it at the same time.
