Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

not really, lol. There's a reason why its called "master quest." Besides, maybe you're just used to it.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Yes indeed, the game is a lot easier than OOT. The only trouble I had was the different types of puzzles they made (i.e. putting something on a switch made a wall appear in front of the door). I just never expected those types of puzzles. The Water Temple (adult) was by far the easiest temple I had ever done, in the Master Quest that is. Yeah, maybe it was because I know OOT inside and out, but either way, it was simple. For example, in the original OOT's water temple you had to get about 7 keys or so. In the Master Quest you had to get 2 or 3. In summary, yes it is easier, by far.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

They are made to have more phases in them but at least Fire and water Temple allows you to skip almost half of the temples when going them through. Although Water Temple lets you skip less than Fire Temple. So that can make thing easier. The puzzles are (funny enough) more complex but not more difficult. You just have to take a stick, run little more with it, use the nuts, and wait for a bomb... When in the original version you just took the stick and walked to the torch next to it. More phases, but not with added difficulty. Makes it more annoying that harder. But the change in scenery can be nice every once in a while so it's actually worth playing atleast once.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

It's harder, yes, but it's probably easier than the first time through normal. Since you're already familiar with puzzle types and dungeon layouts you're going to automatically be that much better at figuring them out.
Try playing Master Quest while playing on another file through the normal game, and it'll be obvious that Master Quest is the harder one.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Well, the dungeons itself are a bit easier, just because you get the weapons a lot earlier.
But the puzzles are hella hard.

.. Don't know where that came from.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

I generally find that they have harder enemies in locations and the puzzles are more difficult, but you tend to get the special item a lot earlier and sometimes (as in the Fire Temple) you get to skip about half of the dungeon. So maybe it isn't easier but just a fair amount shorter?

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Except for the Water Temple and maybe the Fire Temple, no, it's definitely not easier.

If you make a direct comparison of all the dungeons, you will see, that they are indeed much harder. Take alone the Deku Tree dungeon, with all the Gohma Larvas and giant Deku Babas and the evil puzzle with the rolling spikes over the water, where you originally were supposed to lower the water in the original and so on... For beginners the MQ Deku Tree is pretty much a nightmare. Or the Spirit Temple is a mess. Or go try the Gerudo Arena. And I remember the Fire Seal in Ganon's Castle to be really hard, unlike the original.

But you aren't the first, who says something like this. I'd say this has mostly to do with the Water Temple, which some people consider to be like the hardest dungeon ever, and just because the Water Temple in MQ was made easier, the whole game feels like it's easier. This plus the experience, most Zelda gamers already have with the N64 Zelda games when they approach Master Quest for the first time. But overall it was made harder.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Oh yeah, I remember Ganon's castle being really hard. Come to think of it, I haven't even finished MQ yet. Haven't made it passed the seals of Ganon's Castle yet -.-'

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Yep it did change. The Golden Gauntlets are no longer found in the Shadow Temple section, for instance, but in the Fire Temple part instead. And there are Gibdos in the Spirit Temple section.

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

Well actually for me, I only had trouble at the spike trap in the Deku Tree, but now find it really easy. Other than that, to me everything, but some of the puzzles, was easier. I don't know, the more enemies didn't seem to have any effect to me. And neither did the changing of the dungeons and mini-dungeons (Bottom of the Well and Gerudo Training).

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

The Fire Temple was definately easy(It used only 3 of the 5 floors) and the Water Temple was easier out of sympathy, lol.

But I definately had a hard time with everything else, especially Spirit Temple. Hell, even the bottom of the well was hard(or maybe I just sucked at that part in particular)

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

The puzzles are much less logical, but most players have the advantage of being
familiar with the OoT maps, so... the layout should be easier

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

...Yeah it wasn't much harder. The Fire and Water Temples were actually much easier. One thing though...The Bottom of the Well and Ganon's Tower made me go insane. INSANE. X_x

Re: MASTER QUEST easier than Oot?

I thought water temple in OoT was cake. In MQ I got stuck so many times, my hair turned grey.

I'm weird.
