So I beat the game over last weekend, but I don't think I've posted in here.
I have a lot of gripes about the game... a lot of them. I won't go into it here, as it isn't necessary. Part of my issue is that I hold Zelda games to insane expectations, which really isn't fair..
But I will say this: The sword gameplay is unparalleled. Completely unparalleled. The combat ideas, boss ideas, and accuracy and fun-ness of swordplay is downright amazing. I was completely blown away by the last hour of the game, and was so blown out of my mind that I can overlook every other mistake in this game due to its sheer brilliance in swordplay.
I can never play a new zelda game without one-to-one swings. I just can't go back.
