Interesting, though I find the 'US national bird' passage a bit...baffling. It's not like the US has a monopoly on eagles. There was that eagle boss in Link's Awakening; does the US-birdness of that also represent a problem?

Puzzling remarks aside, I appreciate the review not being too long. It gets the point across without filler.

Thanks, Sam.

The main thing with fighting the bald eagle is it makes as much sense as fighting Uncle Sam or Abraham Lincoln as a boss, being an American symbol and all. I think this game was trying to garner sales through patriotism, and having a patriotic symbol as an enemy or a boss is counterintuitive to what they were going for.

Ah, I see. Fair enough.
