I recently played and beat Zelda 2, so I wanted to give my thoughts about it since it's the black sheep of the series. If you're worried about spoilers (For a 30 year old game), please leave if you want to. 

Leaving out complaints caused by hardware limitations, the game was much easier than I thought it would be. That's mostly because I used a guide, but even if I didn't know where to go it was very easy to me to just skip enemies (which I started doing once I leveled up everything), even in the last dungeon. And when I did figure out where I was going, I could easily breeze through the last dungeon, which is supposed to be insanely hard. For me, the game was hardest at the beginning, and it got easier as I leveled up, and learned skills and spells. But this complaint isn't really too serious because I'm sure it wasn't designed to be played through with a guide. 

Something I really liked about the game was the combat. It felt really good to me, and even the easy enemies were satisfying to kill. And of course there were plenty of difficult enemies, especially before you start leveling up or know the best ways to kill them (Like Iron Knuckles). One thing I didn't like too much was the fact that they're in the overworld constantly, which was really repetitive for me. Of course it helps with XP, but I think it would've been better if they appeared less often, but in larger numbers, so they're more of a threat than an annoyance. Another thing that I wanted was a linear dungeon that focused on fighting enemies, like a Cave of Ordeals, but that never happened.

I didn't really touch on that much, but overall I liked it more than I thought I would. And now I'm done.

It's a fantatic game that is misunderstood. It's different not bad. Until Breath of the Wild comes out it is the only Zelda game that is a RPG. Game takes patience and strategy and in some areas the game is a 2D Dark Souls and I don't mean because it's a hard game but in how you fight is not all that dissimilar. People just wanted it to be like the first and Nintendo tried something new and people didn't get it. If you just look at what it is and not what it isn't you will find a difficult but rewarding RPG.



I just hate how the game pretty much forces you to use a guide since it never lets you go past certain points until you acquire *random item in the middle of absolutely nowhere* or talk to certain NPCs only to trigger certain obscure events.

...oh, and I hate the limited lives too.

If it weren't for those, it might have been an enjoyable game, although it would still be the worst mainline Zelda.

My thoughts are basically a combination of these

It's good for what it is, but not up there with the likes of Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess.

I liked it almost as much as the original. It was grandiose at the time. I never did finish it.
