I bought it a while ago, and played it now and then. I think I was unappreciative of the non-3d Zelda games out there. And then I wanted to play it REALLY bad recently... but I couldn't find it. And just a couple days ago I ordered a new copy. So, everything turned out okay. =D
Number 1 rule for The Legend of Zelda: Never, under any circumstances, question it's common sense.
I loved TMC! It's currently one of my favorite Zelda games. TP is the other. It is a bit on the easy and short side, but I've beaten it eight times and am still not bored of it. I haven't completed it 100% yet anyway.
Kinstones! thanks I forgot. I finished the game and I have one left, I've literally talked to every character in the game trying to find who has the other half. I think I missed the chance while playing and now it's impossible to get.
I would have to say I really enjoyed MC. Sure it was a bit on the short side, but it was still a fun game. One fo the few games that I went back to play a second time.
As Margar stated, Zelda really did have a real personality, and wasn't just this cold princess who holds part of the Triforce. I also feel Ezlo was an excellent character. I found him to be humorous, and not to annoying. He Provided some help, but didn't entirely hold your hand the whole time.
The figurines and kinstones also added a fun aspect to when you wanted to get away from the quest. You had reason to interact with all the characters to fuse the kinstones, giving each character a reason, even if it were that small.
It was also a pretty good story. Link is on a quest to rescue his friend, Zelda, and not just going on some quest to save a princess he had never met.

The game was great as most say, but the last boss was a little challenging for an eleven year old. Overall the minish were awesome and the temples were nice. Glitches... I wonder how people find them, by accident or on purpose.
Was link in MC an eleven year old, or were you talking about yourself?
