Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Zelda 2 has bad controls and too much trial and error for me to find it fun.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Even though it was hard as balls and I spent three fourths of the game cussing out the game, yelling how much I hated it. Somehow beneath all that rage I was actually enjoying it kinda sad I guess.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Because I'm weak.

Not that I don't like it, but I just can't play it.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

I love Zelda 2. Sure, it's as hard as Darmani's...well...but it's fun! And pure difficulty doesn't really make me hate it. It makes me enjoy it more because that's what game were back then. Hard.

Zelda II was fun. That's all that needs to be said.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

I personally loved the difficulty, beating it remains to this day one of my top 5 video game accomplishments. The game is HARD though, even with save states the game is hard. Without them, i've only beaten it a few times. One thing I have not seen mentioned on this thread that makes Zelda II unique is the fact that there are no usable items. They are auto used when you need them. This remains the only game in the series that went that route. It was an interesting idea but one that I don't think a lot of gamers liked. The the magic system was pretty extensive and hard to use efficiently and I feel that it was that that replaced the item usage. Overall, a frustratingly enjoyable game.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

I liked Zelda 2. The music was awesome, magic and up/down thrusting was fun. It was the experience system that got to me. I hate having to level up. That's why I usually avoid rpg's. I don't hate them, I just don't like having to sit there and kill blobs.

I love Zelda 2. Only thing I guess you could say I don't like is that's it's really hard at times.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

The magic system is confusing and hard to use. Levelling up is difficult. Heck ,the game itself is pretty stinkin' difficult. But, overall, it's a fun game, if you've got the patience for it.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Alright, I have found something with this game that I really got ticked off about that I just recently found out. I have done a low level run of the game where I was hoping to be able to go through the entire game with my attack/life/magic all at level 1. I have already done a playthrough with my attack only at level 1. Anyways, apparently the game says that's a no-no to go through the game with all level 1 stats. You will get to a point where you keep cancelling the leveling up screen and you are FORCED to level something up and the cancel option is no longer selectable. I am thankful the game pulled this ♣♣♣♣ on me while I was barely in Parapa Palace and not much later in the game, but still it ticked me off. I ended up choosing my magic to be the stat I was forced to level up throughout my run of the game. So in the end I beat the game with my attack and life at level 1 and magic at level 8. After beating it, I was then wondering to myself would it even be possible to beat the game with a level 1 magic stat because the Thunder spell is required to be used at least once and I'm not sure that even with 8 magic containers you would have enough magic to cast it under a level 1 magic stat.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Zelda 2 is the best 2D Zelda games other than Minish cap. It's a shame that people don't take the time to play it and figure out how to play it and finish it (or atleast sorta finish it)

A completed 1-8-1 run, congrats!
Anyway, the Thunder spell can be casted at level 1.
It will take 7 and 1/2 bars so no Jump spell against Thunderbird.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

Zelda 2 is a good game, but a lot of people are turned off by its difficulty. I personally found the magic system awkward and confusing, and levelling up was extremely hard.

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

I think the side scrolling aspect of the game may be a culprit...despite it being a unique implementation in this game...

Re: Why don't you like Zelda 2?

I haven't beaten Zelda 2, but, man, that game is hard! I checked off the things that bugged me, but I don't have any real problems with the game other than the difficulty. One of these days, I'll just have to sit down and play through the entire game.
